Top 5 First Anniversary Date Ideas

Now that the wedding is over, you have probably had a busy past year and haven’t even thought about what to plan for your first anniversary as husband and wife. Here are some of our ideas of things to do to celebrate your first wedding anniversary.

  1. Reminisce on the Romance:

Go back to where all of the magic happened.  Spend an afternoon or evening where you first met or maybe where you’re first date was. Make it a fun time. Relive the experience of meeting each other for the first time and see what stronger connection can be formed.

  1. Spa Getaway:

Hit the road and head to a spa for the weekend.  The Scandinave Spa Whistler is the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect.  Take time with your spouse to get massages together and apart.  The beauty of the spa is you can do many of the luxurious activities together as well as separate.  It will be nice to share each other’s experiences at the end of the weekend.  And to get the relaxation you and your partner want.


  1. Escape to the Okanagan and Get Lost in a Vineyard

We’ve never turned down a chance to drink wine but why not do it in the beautiful Okanagan.

Plan a wine filled getaway with your partner and stay in an Air BnB or a Bed and Breakfast.

Here’s some of our favourite Okanagan getaway spots!

  1. Get Your Apron Dirty

Take a cooking class in Vancouver at the Dirty Apron Cooking School.  Make it a fun challenge with our partner to see who can cook the dish the best.  You’ll learn some new recipes that you can bring home with you while spending time with your partner.

  1. Make it a Netflix Night

Sometimes Netflix and chill means something else… if that’s the case, we’re ok with that too.

If none of the above activities are really you and your partner’s style, then just kick it at home and relax.  Pick a new movie on Netflix and get all your favourite snacks together.  Here are some romantic suggestions:

  • The Princess Bride
  • Moonrise Kingdom
  • Under the Tuscan Sun
  • Bridget Jones’ Diary
  • How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
  • Clueless
  • Love Actually
