First or fifteenth, every anniversary deserves a celebration. This is a milestone that doesn't really happen every day to every person, so it's best to take advantage of anniversaries that come your way.
To make that occasion extra special, here are 5 ideas to do it:
A little drama wouldn't really hurt, right? Take a trip down memory lane and relive your special memories by going back to where you first met or where you had your first date, and do it all over again. Get all the feels by reminiscing on what you wore on that first movie date, or browse on that photo album of your first anniversary so you would never forget where you all started and get you reminded that only your love would take you both to more anniversaries together.
Anniversaries don't always equate to grandiose parties or fancy dinner dates. Especially if both of you have no much time to prepare, start your day by preparing a breakfast in bed for... whoever wakes up later! If you aren't a morning person, find a recipe of your comfort food and have it ready right in time for dinner. Your presence will always be the best gift, so make that 24 hours count.
Celebrate your marriage just as how you started. You don't really need a fancy party for it, but if you really want to, a bride deserves it all! Reaffirm your commitment by stating your heartfelt vows in front of the people who matter on the beachside where you had your honeymoon. You sure would feel the rush of emotions and memories on a special day like this, making a really momentous celebration of love.
Every couple dreams of having some days off... without the kids. And yes, you deserve it, and you don't have to be guilty of it! Take your kids to a sibling or trusty friend’s home and let them do the honor of watching over your children as you go on a staycation in a luxurious hotel or villa of your liking. Get your hands off of that phone and just spend the day or night without having to worry about anything. Cap the day off with a bottle of champagne and a nice dinner with the view of the city from your room. Sounds amazing, isn't it?
Of course, traveling surely is on your list. Book a flight to the city you've always been dreaming of! Take a quick escape and do touristy stuff. Ride bikes and take selfies. Eat street food and shop in local stores. Whether you're planning on visiting a beach city or an urban paradise, be sure to make the most out of your time together because anniversaries are meant to be celebrated your way.
No matter how you plan to celebrate your anniversary, it's always the memories with the person you love that counts. And for you not to forget every moment you'll be making from your anniversary celebration, let SweetEscape join you in preserving those memories by capturing them into beautiful photos made to keep forever.

Filipinos are known for their long holiday celebration. Many traditions and new ways keep this season alive no matter which city or town you go. You won't run out of things to do (but your budget probably will!) when you celebrate the holidays in the Philippines through these activities:
It's this time of the year when massive pop-up year-end bazaar and sale events happen, so go ahead and take advantage of the markdown madness to complete your Christmas gift list.
How many masses have you attended so far? Get up early or spare an hour so you could attend the mass at night because as they say, completing the 9-day or -night series will make a wish come true.
As soon as the holiday season comes, many parks and tourist attractions open Christmas-themed shows that are perfect for all ages. These Instagram-worthy locations are usually free of charge, making them picturesque and cheery venues to gather with your friends and families.
It has been part of the Filipino tradition to gather in groups and sing either classic or remixed tunes as they go from one house to another. Just as long as you know the lyrics to the in-trend Christmas songs, you'll definitely get those coins, or if you're lucky, you'll receive bills from your kind neighbors!
Many Filipinos love merrymaking, so expect most of your December weekends, and sometimes, weekdays too, to blocked off with schedules of parties. It's also a time to meet the newborns or catch up with the relatives who you haven't spoken to for a long time. Make your reunion party more memorable and let SweetEscape photographers turn your moments into beautiful photographs. Special for this holiday season, get 50% OFF on your 2-hour photo shoot, anywhere in Manila.
The Filipino version of Secret Santa is a more exciting and interesting one because gift-giving is done in small batches. Whether the category's something big, something fluffy, something embarrassing, or something naughty, you'll surely go home with a smile on your face because your friend or officemate could surely find a gift to pull that category or theme off!
For some Filipinos, the holiday season means quality time, without the hassle of preparing feasts or organizing parties. Some simply prefer staying in or booking an accommodation where they could all relax and exchange thoughtful gifts after a hearty meal.
To some who've been looking forward to a unique kind of celebration for the holidays, setting off to another country is an option. School or office breaks give them a chance to explore new places, making their holidays a more memorable one.
In times like these, memories are meant to be saved. Especially if you've waited long enough for your family to be complete this holiday season, don't miss the chance to document those moments — let SweetEscape do it for you.
SweetEscape now offers a one-hour photo shoot that'll capture your best holiday moments in 1-2 spots.
