How to Throw a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party

For a married couple to celebrate their 50 years of togetherness is like an achievement. These 50 years are also called the Golden Wedding Anniversary. It not only involve friends and family but also all near and dear ones. Here are a few tips that can make your party successful.

How to plan a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party


To start with, you can make home made invitation cards. If possible stick the couples wedding photo. Other than having a personal touch people would be surprised to see a snap of the married couple when they were young. You could also purchase 50th anniversary invitation cards.


You could book a place, depending on the number of guests. If you are expecting many guests then a restaurant or a entertainment hall would be appropriate. While booking for such places, make arrangements for a sufficient parking space for your guests.


Since the 50th wedding anniversary is also known as the “Golden Anniversary” you could have gold as the theme. Decorations can include balloons with a tint of gold color, streamers and tableware. If you are looking for something more creative, you can have the 50s retro style as the theme.


To have an organized food menu is important. If you plan to have the wedding anniversary party at a restaurant then hire a caterer which would make things much easier for you. If you plan to prepare food yourself then let your guests know that they are most welcome to bring something. What you could also do is to look up in the internet for food from the 50s so that it would go well with your retro theme.


It is obvious that a couple celebrating their Golden Anniversary are 70 years or older. Therefore, play music from their times so that they enjoy the good old days. You can search for classical songs or tunes from the 50s and compile it into a cd. Hiring a DJ is also a good idea, but make sure he/she plays the couples favorite songs.
