10th Anniversary Ideas

Below are some 10th anniversary ideas to help you celebrate your first full decade together.

As you begin the next ten years together, take time to honor the past ten.

Party Ideas

Traditionally, the tenth anniversary is associated with tin or aluminum.

These symbols suggest an informal get-together with close friends and family.

So, a picnic or a barbecue would be a great idea for a 10th anniversary party.


Set up a long table and serve the food buffet style. Place a blue or red checkered tablecloth on the table to go with the casual theme.

Wrap brownies in aluminum foil to give to your guests as they leave.

Music Ideas

Play songs that were popular the year you were married or stay with the country theme and play country music love songs.

Other Ways to Celebrate Your 10th Wedding Anniversary

Wedding anniversaries are very special and many people prefer to spend their anniversaries with just each other.

If you choose to stay home together, rent movies that were popular the year you were married or during the time you were dating.

After a special meal, cuddle up and watch these movies together. It will bring back memories of special times.

Or go to the hotel where you had your wedding reception for a special meal or visit the place of your first date.

A 10 year anniversary is a good time to go down "memory lane" together. Try to remember all the good and happy times that you have had together during the past decade.

A Cruise

If you have always talked about taking a cruise together, then a tenth anniversary is a great time to do that.

Or if you were married during the winter months and would like to get away to a sunnier spot, then why not now?

There are many 10 day cruises that would be fun and romantic for a 10th anniversary celebration.

But if you can't be gone that long, a 3-day cruise is a lot of fun too!
