Congratulations! You just made it through your first year of marriage which is technically the most difficult one. You get to know “new” things about your partner and he or she typically begins to unravel the weaknesses that might have been hidden during the pre-marital relationship (if you had one!)

7. Toast and Talk
Talk about the last year with your spouse over a toast. Let it be nice and subtle even if you want to complain though we would suggest to keep the complaints to yourself on this day. Tell each other about your best moments. If you have maintained a love journal; go through it.
8. Have a dinner date
Even if it is a weekday, anniversaries are special- have a hang out together with your partner. Try making it to your reception site for that day and relive those moments again.
9. Revive and retell
Retell the story of how you fell in love with your partner and take your wedding vows again. Talk about your future plans along with reminiscing the past. Make promises to each other, even if you have made them before. It creates a strength in the bond. This can even be done officially in the presence of a priest and friends-just like that day!
