Are you thinking about surprising your parents on an upcoming milestone wedding anniversary? Are you trying to decide how best to make this day into one that they'll cherish for a long time to come? Planning a special day for your parents can be a great way to show them that you appreciate all that they've done for you over the years. But it's not always easy to plan an anniversary celebration from scratch: Here are some tips on helping to make the day as special as possible for your parents:
Hire a limo: Instead of having your parents drive themselves to and from any destinations, look into hiring one of the deluxe limo services in their area to get them where they need to go. While riding around in a limo can be special enough, you may want to find out if any of the deluxe limo services allow or will provide a special bottle of wine or champagne to any passengers. If alcohol is not permitted in the back of the limo, perhaps your parents can instead toast to the start of their anniversary celebration with a bottle of sparkling apple cider or other fizzy juice drink. For more information, contact companies like Deluxe Limo and Party Bus.
Get a professional photographer: Candid family photos can be great. But one of the best ways to commemorate the day is by hiring a real photographer to take pictures. Depending on your exact plans, have the photographer waiting at the hotel or restaurant where the celebration is going to take place. When your parents step out of the limo, the photographer can be there to capture the look on their faces. The photographer needn't be hired for the whole day, unless you want to do so, but having at least a few professional photographs as a keepsake of the day is sure to be something that your parents will treasure for years to come.
Buy a wedding cake: Why settle for celebrating with an ordinary sheet cake from an ordinary grocery store bakery? If you're going to be hiring any deluxe limo services and a professional photographer, you might as well go all out. You needn't have a full wedding cake made, but you should consider trying to find a cake decorator who can replicate the top one or two tiers of your parents' wedding cake. Make sure to choose a celebratory venue that is actually able to store this replica cake in a suitable location until necessary. Some restaurants may want to be able to accommodate you but will simply have no room or ability to keep a wedding cake safe and out of the way.
