Book a Historic Anniversary Party Venue in Hershey

An anniversary party is a great way to celebrate 25, 30, 40 and even 50 years of being married and in love. All anniversaries are huge milestones that should be celebrated with the ones that you are close to.

Planning a wedding anniversary party can come with a large list of to-dos, from where to have the party, the theme, who to have or not have on the guest list, and making sure it all fits within your budget. It can all be very stressful.

We can help!

Anniversary Party Ideas & Tips for You.

Date & Time to Determine the Location & Venue

In most cases, you’ll want to choose a date that is around the couple’s actual wedding anniversary date. We recommend trying to set down a date a few months in advance, for a few reasons. First, it allows those guests coming in from out of town to plan travel arrangements accordingly. Second, the sooner you begin to plan, the more likely a wedding anniversary party venue is available on or around your preferred date.

Consider an Anniversary Party Theme

While this step is not entirely necessary, it is fun to give something to help plan the rest of the party around. Whether you want to celebrate the decade the couple got married in, host a faux-black-tie event, or do something different like a luau, having an idea for your anniversary party theme will make planning the other steps easier.

Send Out Invitations

For a larger, more formal event, we’d recommend sending out paper invites to stress the importance and formality. If you’re having a smaller event, phone calls and digital invites will do the trick. Regardless of how you’re sending them, be sure your invites include date & times, dress code, location, and whether or not the couple has a gift registry (or even wants gifts at all).

Determine Catering Options After RSVPs

Once you have an idea of how many people will be attending, catering options for food and drink become easier to plan. Finding a caterer is much easier with our connections, and then you can begin to plan the menu. Also, remember to take people’s dietary restrictions into account.

Use Decoration Ideas from the Original Wedding or Time Era

Using the same color scheme as the couple’s wedding is a very nice touch. This can be used for the cake and decorations. Depending upon what anniversary it is, you can look into what the color, traditional gift, and flowers are. Other ideas for decorations include displaying the bride’s wedding dress and a slideshow of photos from the day. If you have chosen a theme, be sure to check out DIY options for decorations on sites like Pinterest.

Optional: Schedule Entertainment & Book A Photographer

Having a DJ or live band is completely optional but will keep people enjoying themselves for hours on end. A nice touch is to make sure the DJ or band knows some of the couple’s favorite songs and songs played on their wedding day.

While the photographer is also optional, having moments captured in time by a professional will always be a nice touch. This also allows everyone attending the party to be focused on celebrating instead of worrying about having to take photos or videos.
