How quickly a year can fly by is shocking! Whilst it feels like only yesterday you said ‘I do’, a whole year has passed and your first anniversary as Mr & Mrs is approaching and you’re looking for some ideas on how to celebrate. Traditionally your one year anniversary is ‘paper’ meaning that your gifts to each other on this anniversary should be paper based. Whilst there are some great options here for some ideas, there’s also some memorable experiences in Cyprus that you can do to celebrate it too.
#1 Relive Your Day
What better way to celebrate than to relive your wedding day than to revisit Cyprus and relive some of the day, whether it’s a visit to see Liopetro again or staying in the same hotel you stayed at for your wedding. Relive part of your wedding day in any way you wish and reminisce about your wedding day.
#2 Love Lock Bridges
A beautiful way to commemorate a year since your wedding is by attaching a padlock as a symbol of your love to one of the island’s Love Lock Bridges. Depending on where you are staying on the island, there is one located in Paphos and one in Ayia Napa, securing an engraved or personalised padlock forever on the island.
#3 Treat Yourselves
Paper or not, you can use it as a good excuse to splurge on something that you’ll treasure for years to come! Perhaps a piece of art or something for your home you can enjoy as this may be the first time since your wedding that you get to spend on something for yourselves.
#4 Second Honeymoon
There’s no better time spent together than time away from your usual routine and exploring somewhere new, whether you’re revisiting your honeymoon destination, holidaying in a part of Cyprus you’ve never visited or exploring a new country, time spent just the two of you is always a good choice.
#5 Paper and Pamper
Enjoy some pampering with a spa day or gift vouchers for just a unique day and reconnect over a relaxing massage.
#6 Romantic Dinner
An exquisite dinner in a top restaurant or a secluded picnic on the beach (with ‘paper’ plates) can be a thoughtful and intimate way to spend your first wedding anniversary.
#7 A Taste of your Wedding Day
Perhaps you enjoyed a traditional meze on your wedding day or order a cake that reminds you of your wedding cake and enjoy a taste of your wedding on your anniversary.
#8 Creative Gifts
There are also a number of great creative anniversary gifts you can buy eachother for your first anniversary. Order one of your wedding photos turned into a jigsaw puzzle, a personalised print (this could be your your first dance song lyrics, a personalised print/ map of Cyprus, your wedding vows etc.)
