People are fond of commemorating different events in their lives. We enjoy celebrating holidays, birthdays, graduations, and other special events that have graced us. Regularly celebrating these events is our way of showing the significance of these days in our lives.
One of the special days that people regularly celebrate is an anniversary. The most common anniversary is a wedding anniversary. The day you marry and promise your significant other your love for eternity is a day to remember and celebrate for your found happiness.
Many consider it important to celebrate all events independent of other events. Before you set your wedding date, check all other dates that are special to each of you. See if there are close relatives celebrating their birthday on your chosen day. As obvious as it may sound, also check that the tentative date does not fall on a holiday. Many are considerate to avoid having their wedding anniversary fall on birthdays of the other person or any major holidays like Halloween, 4th of July or Thanksgiving. Having an anniversary day that shares the day with any other event may take away from the importance of either event.
Whether you plan on celebrating anniversaries lavishly with gifts, or modestly just relaxing, plan your wedding, and subsequently your anniversary, on a day that will allow you to fully celebrate the love you share with your significant other.

It is important to remember that when preparing a party, you have an idea of all of the factors that will make the event a success. One factor is being aware of the purpose of the event. Knowing what the party is for and for whom the party is intended, is half of the success in preparing for it. For a couples’ party, it is important that activities and games are intended for couples and not for kids. Although some kid games might be a welcome activity every now and then.

Fun activities and exciting games that adults can play among themselves are some of the things that can make a party worthwhile. What you can find here are some of the games and activities that you and your fellow couples might try for your next couples’ party night.
You might be familiar with the game ‘How Well Do You Know Your Partner’. If you’re not, think of it as the ‘Newly Wed’ game show that was on TV, except you get to enjoy it with friends. This is an exciting and challenging game for most couples. Couples who have been in their relationship for a long time might have the edge when playing this game, since the game is all about how well you know your partner.
If you’re a couple who believes they can read each others’ thoughts then you will surely find ‘Blind Item’ as a great game. Couples are asked to guess whatever the card in their partner’s hand reads. The game starts with another person picking a card which will be stuck in that person’s forehead without knowing what’s written. The person with the card will then have to ask some questions to his partner to know what is written on the card. The other partner is only allowed to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
