Wedding anniversaries are a fun, memorable milestone to celebrate! We provide a DJ and photo booth for a lot of 25th and 50th wedding anniversary parties in the Austin and central Texas area. They are always so much fun! We've seen quite a few great ideas that people have implemented, to help celebrate the special occasion! We thought we'd share these ideas with you, to help provide some inspiration if you're planning an anniversary party.
Should You Hire a Wedding/Event Planner for Your Anniversary Party?
First, remember that this is a special milestone to celebrate and that planning this event should not be stressful. It should be fun! You're basically planning a fun, party for you and your guests to enjoy. It's almost like planning a second wedding, minus the stress and pressure! :) If you find that it's too stressful, feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to provide our event planning services. So whether you hire an event planner, or plan it with the help of your family and friends, just remember, this is a celebration of a great marriage and the goal is to have fun!
Find a Venue
Now that you keep this in mind, it's time to plan the party! First, find a venue that will allow you to invite the number of guests you want to invite. If you're having a smaller event, you can even consider having the party in someone's backyard. If that's not suitable, then your first goal is to find an adequate venue, within your price range. Check out our "recommended wedding vendors page" for a list of venues we work with, often.
Next, plan what type of food you'll serve at your celebration. If you're having an earlier celebration, consider brunch! You could serve brunch and Mimosas! If you're on a budget, consider serving heavy appetizers.
If you're having a late afternoon or evening event, you can discuss different options with your caterer. You don't have to serve a traditional meal, either. We've seen more and more people breaking tradition and even serving pizza at their wedding. There are no rules. You do what fits your personality and budget, best!
Hire a DJ or Band
Besides feeding your guests, you need to consider entertainment. You can hire a band, or hire a DJ. Be sure to talk to your entertainment and let them know about the occasion. Consider the type of music you want and the age ranges of the guests that will be attending.
Contact us, and we'll be happy to discuss your event options and entertainment needs with you. :)
Additional Entertainment Options
Besides hiring a DJ or band, you have plenty of other entertainment options. You could always add a photo booth, karaoke, lawn games, hire a caricature artists, face painter, etc. Check out our DJ and photo booth packages and optional upgrades, to see what we offer and see what options you can consider for your event, even if you're not booking with us!
