Why not take a vacation on a destination you will all like? This requires planning since you’ll be traveling to a different location.

You can also revisit your honeymoon destination to rekindle your love and passion. Don’t forget some lovely happy anniversary flowers to make it grand.
Take a Day-cation
Don’t worry if you don’t have the time or funds to travel for a vacation. A day-cation is also a good idea. If you have the spirit of adventure, you can always get your travelling gear and take a hike are take a three or four hour trip to a place you haven’t been in a while to see if things have changed or they are just the same. This doesn’t require much preparation, just a few clothes, packed food, and beverage. A day-cation also gives you a chance to relive your youth and rejuvenate your passion for each other as you ponder on what you future aspirations are. A great marriage is built upon love and communication. This is also a time to engage closely and discuss how you can improve your marriage. Get special anniversary flowers for her to show your appreciation for the ten years you have been together.
Host a Dinner or Cocktail Party
You can also keep things on the low and host a simple dinner or a cocktail party. Invite a few close friends and family to celebrate your achievement in 10 years of marriage. You can even decide to renew your vows with beautiful anniversary bouquets to make it romantic. A guest list of about 15 – 10 people will be enough to share this awesome ceremony of love. This also doesn’t require much planning and you can organize yourselves in a day or a few hours. All you need are food and drinks to sweeten the occasion. Sharing a beautiful moment like this gives you a time to reflect on the good times and blessings that the Almighty God had to grant you over the years.
Go on a Road Trip
A road trip is also a great idea to celebrate your tenth year anniversary. However, it requires a bit of planning. First, check the weather outside and if it is conducive enough, you can get your travelling gear and hit the road. Get an all-terrain car that will break down in the middle of nowhere. A cell phone is also another essential device to help you get help should you encounter any problems. A first aid kit and plenty of clean water to keep you hydrated all the way is also important. It is also good to have a physical map in case the GPS or GPRS goes down or the internet is not available. You should both agree on the best suitable destination before setting off. In case you don’t have an SUV, you can always hire a roadworthy vehicle to have a smooth journey.
Go on a Picnic
If you have kids, a picnic is a suitable idea to mark your tenth year in marriage. This is also a simple way to celebrate and it doesn’t require many preparations. As a formality, always check the weather, if it’s perfect then you are good to go. You can bring packed food and drinks, an audio box, and blankets in case it gets cold in the evening.

If it’s just the two of you, then it’s very easy. Just get a small boat and set off into the sea. Get enough food and drinks to last through your trip. For big cruise ships food and drinks is offered on deck and therefore, you don’t need to worry about that. If you are the adventurous type, you can consider boat peddling or canoeing at a nearby lake. This is a fun way to spend your tenth anniversary in the water!
