But, what would set your tenth and twentieth wedding anniversary gifts apart from the rest? All you need to do is think like Nicholas Sparks and take our advice. This list of gift ideas will help you make your wife gush at every decade.

Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas For Her

10 Years of Marriage

Take her on a dream vacation. Your wife might like hiking or city life… wherever her dream spot is, TAKE HER THERE! After 10 years of marriage you have experienced many firsts as a couple.  There is something to be said about how precious quality time is. The best gift you could give her is one where you spend time alone, experiencing something new. For your tenth anniversary, experience yet another first together.

20 Years of Marriage

Make a statement with jewelry. There are thousands of couples who view their twentieth anniversary as a good time to renew their vows. If you and your wife are considering reliving that powerful and uniting moment, make it extra special by giving her an additional band. Of course, you do not need to renew vows to purchase something sparkly. A necklace and matching earrings or, an eye-catching bracelet are just as special. Statement jewelry that fits your wife’s style will tell her that you pay attention to what she likes!

30 Years of Marriage

Complete a 30 days of gifting challenge! (a gift every day for your entire anniversary month) Start small. By this time, you will have given your loved one nearly every variation of a wedding anniversary gift. Go back to the basics. What little pieces of information about her and your love story are stuck in your memory? If you remember what she was drinking strawberry daiquiris on your honeymoon, take her on a date to get one. Or, if she stole your heart on the dance floor  and you remember the song, buy her that CD. You could even turn that song on at home and share a dance. The 30 days of gifting challenge is a simple way to remind her that you value all of the in-between moments you two have shared.

40 Years of Marriage

Learn something new. It is totally normal for spouses not to share the same passions. One of you might enjoy an art show, while the other would prefer to go boating. Pay attention to what your wife talks about doing but never really does. Or, give her the option to choose an experience that she would like to share with you. Quality time is key!

50 Years of Marriage

Have a party! Invite your family and friends to celebrate the love you have shared for half of a century! Hire a planner and surprise her. Or, let her take the reigns. Whatever the situation, big or small, you two deserve to have a night dedicated to your love. To end it with a bang, go all out and make a toast to your wife. Whatever you say, she’ll love it.

Anniversaries will vary year to year, marriages will face bad days. So, take advantage of the one day out of the year that the two of you gave so much meaning to! It is important to make your person smile and reminisce on your love story together. All clichés aside, a woman loves feeling seen and understood. Give gifts that show her you still know her soul, even after all of life’s changes.

Nicole and Nicholas’ Wedding

On Veteran’s Day 2017 Nicole and Nicholas were wed at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach.  They are both from military families, with our Groom serving himself, so it only made sense that their special day was both very presidential and at the same time romantic.  Nicole was wearing a beautiful lace dress with cap sleeves and an elegant train.  Their color palette of red, burgundy, pink, and white perfectly complimented the luxurious yachts and elegant decor of the resort.  Their day was full of love, keep reading to see their heartfelt day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Getting ready with your girls can be one of the best of part of your wedding day.  Nicole gifted her bridesmaids with adorable matching red robes which made for some fun pictures to capture the first few memories of her wedding day.

Nicole and Nicholas’ ceremony had so many sweet moments.  Their flower girl was so cute waiting for Nicole to walk down the aisle.  They exchanged touching vows under a gorgeous arch created by The Bloom of Time.  Their ceremony took place at the Balboa Bay Resort’s Bayview Lawn right next to the crystal clear bay.

Nicole’s bridesmaids looked so gorgeous in beautiful flowy red gowns and held white and burgundy flowers with some greenery. Nicholas’ groomsmen wore slick black tuxes with white boutonnieres and a red pocket square that complimented the bridesmaids dresses perfectly.  Just look at how in love these two are, it makes us so happy to see how in love our couples are.

Their reception was one for the books!  The reception was filled with so many elegant details.  The hints of gold throughout the ballroom were the perfect touch to this presidential and sweet celebration.

 

Congratulations to Mr. + Mrs. Rubino! We thank Nicholas and both families for their service to our Country!
