All these years later, and your love is still going strong. Sometimes, you’re not quite sure how you do it, but with a little patience, a pinch of tough love, and years’ worth of compromise, you fall deeper in love every year. And here you are, ready to send out your wedding anniversary invitations to celebrate another year of marriage.
Whether you’re celebrating one year of marriage or 60, you want your friends and loved ones by your side. Some of them have been with you since the beginning — popping bottles at your bachelorette party, tearing up at your bridal shower, and holding your bouquet at the altar. But now, your family and group of friends have expanded, and you want all these new faces to gather with you at your anniversary party too.
Because that’s what a marriage is, isn’t it? There comes a point when it’s no longer just about the two of you. Your two lives have merged into one, bringing all your friends, family, children, and loved ones into it.
And these invites make sure they’re right there with you, toasting to your marriage and lives together. We’ve recommended invitations for different milestones, but each of these anniversary invites can be customized to match your stage of marriage.
10 Year Wedding Anniversary Invitations
So much has changed over the past decade, and you’re ready to celebrate it — not just with your spouse, but with those you love. Invite all of your friends, family, and loved ones over to reminisce over the past 10 years with these anniversary party invitations.
1. Golden Decade Invitation
Have 10 years already passed? This show-stopping invitation is as breathtaking as the last decade of your lives, complete with a deep blue and gold foil color palette. An enlarged 10 takes up the bulk of the front of the card with the anniversary details transcribed in the zero. A luxe, all-caps font is used to write “10th Wedding Anniversary” at the top with the details of your reception printed in smaller font below.
2. Shimmery Surprise Invitation
Grab the glitz, glam, and confetti because you’re celebrating 10 years since the two of you got hitched. It’s been a full decade since you two swore “forever” at the altar, and those words still ring true. This modern invitation carries a bit of pizazz with a sparkling black and gold color palette. It’s the ideal way to toast to 10 years of marriage — and still swooning over each other like you did at your engagement party.
3. Bronze Statement Invitation
Can you think back to the night of your rehearsal dinner, and how nervous you were on the eve of your wedding? Now that 10 years have passed, you can’t help wonder what you were so scared of — because the past decade has been the most fulfilling of your life.
Sure, you have your ups and downs, but the two of you pulled through every challenge, opportunity, and hurdle presented over the past decade. To celebrate your partnership, send out this photo card invitation, bringing your friends and loved ones together for your 10th anniversary.
25th Anniversary Invitations
Can you imagine — you spent a quarter of a century head-over-heels in love with one person. Some wedding traditions state that a spouse should gift their honey with silver on their 25th wedding anniversary, so perhaps you’ll get a gorgeous necklace, bracelet, or pennant from your forever crush. Or consider decorating a reception hall in silver decor, giving a subtle nod to your 25 years spent together.
4. Costumes & Cocktails Invitation
This luxe invitation is jaw-droppingly elegant, fit for a gala, masquerade, or, of course, your 25th wedding anniversary celebration. With a black and gold color palette, you may consider hosting a dolled-up cocktail hour or a black-tie-only affair for your anniversary party. The beautiful lettering and golden frame certainly add a touch of refinement, building excitement for your special evening.
5. Beautiful Forever Invitation
You two promised to be together forever, and 25 years later, you wouldn’t have it any other way. This simple, yet elegant invitation is fit for an intimate anniversary party with close friends and family.
Dust off the photo books, pull out keepsakes from your various travels, and scatter a number of photos in lieu of party supplies and decorations, reminiscing over the memories you created over the past quarter century. Surely, your children and other loved ones will enjoy looking through these momentos just as much as you.
6. Silver Celebration Invitation
You never could have predicted the way the last 25 years turned out, but you’re sure happy you had your #1 by your side. To celebrate your forever partner, forever roommate, and forever friend, send out this luxurious anniversary invitation. With a large “25” written in white lettering across a navy background, it invites your friends and loved ones to join in on your silver anniversary.
50th Anniversary Celebration Invitations
The one. The only. The big five-zero. Your love has stood the test of time for half a century. You built a family together, who have now gone on to start their own families.
You moved into bigger homes to accommodate your growing lifestyle, and then you downsized when once again, it became just the two of you. You are each other’s better halves, and you are just as excited to send out this 50th anniversary invitation as you were to send your original wedding invitation.
7. Fifty! Invitation
After 50 years of marriage, you still got it, baby! You can tell the youngsters to slide on over on the dance floor because you two have done the tango and cha-cha through half a century together, and it shows.
With this anniversary greeting card, the word “fifty” is proudly written in big, bold font for all to see (exclamation point included). Write the details of your anniversary reception on the right of the card, and remind guests to bring their dancing shoes.
8. Two Tone Watercolor Wash Invitation
Some couples enjoy a large, jaw-dropping bash for their 50th and 40th anniversaries, but you? No — what you want is a quiet, intimate dinner with your spouse, children, and grandchildren.
This minimalist blue and gold invitation carries the aesthetic you had in mind, leaving just enough space to write the details of the dinner. The subtle design is ideal for your dream celebration, ensuring those you love most are with you to celebrate your golden anniversary.
9. Photo Ripples Invitation
Like you, this photo invitation is a little retro, featuring old-world calligraphy and a muted color palette. To celebrate your 50 years of marriage, include a photo from your wedding day. Or, since you’ve aged like the fine wine you are, include a photo from this year. To the left of your chosen image, add the details of your anniversary reception, inviting your loved ones to join you in celebration.
Just Where, Exactly, Has the Time Gone?
You can still remember (with a slight cringe) choking down — excuse us, indulging in — the top tier of your wedding cake at your first anniversary. And while it’s a fun memory to smile at, it’s not the most representative snapshot of your marriage.
Your marriage is the sum total of all the wondrous moments throughout the years: The birth announcements that elevated your family from “couple” to group status, the holiday cards you never once sent out on time, the birthday invitations you sent out for children and grandchildren, and the high school graduation invitations and college graduation announcements you proudly displayed on your fridge.
You built a partnership in the spaces between this annual date — the anniversary of your wedding day. And from all of us at Greenvelope, we want to wish you a heartfelt congratulations and an even bigger thank you. Thank you for letting us play a small role in the baby showers, Christmas cards, graduation parties, and birthday parties that weaved those years together.
