What's the best way to celebrate one's first year of being married?! A few years ago, my wife and I were faced with this very question, and it really did give us a bit of a challenge, because our financial resources were a bit strained, with it being our first year together, just starting out, and newly facing the world together, and still trying to secure a good job! We kept it really simple, and actually saved towards it: just a meal with the two of us and a lovely drive out to the country. We loved it! Because it was just us, which is all we need. How about you? Do you have any suggestions for other couples who would love ideas in celebrating their first year wedding anniversary? How about gift ideas? Especially on a "first-year budget", lol.
