Is this the year for a milestone wedding anniversary in the family? The 25th, the 40th, the 50th? Maybe you had your hearts set on a romantic beach picnic anniversary date for yourselves. Or perhaps you were planning an elegant champagne and cake anniversary dinner with family to surprise your parents. But with going out or gathering in groups not an option just yet, what about holding a virtual wedding anniversary celebration instead?
Even while keeping it simple, it can still be stylish. Just choose elegant essentials, like these we’re featuring—from invites, to sweets, to drinks, to special keepsakes. Then get your livestreaming devices ready (check out our tips on virtual events here and here). Once your invited guests join you online, the anniversary revelry begins!

Essentials for an Elegant Anniversary Gathering Online
Set the celebratory mood! Send out customizable Champagne Toast Online Invitations (1 – from Punchbowl) to your guests, so they know this will be virtual but special.
Extend that theme to your on-cam party setting at home. Prepare a bar cart or side table for a champagne and sweets display (2 – styled by Bellenza), with a sophisticated 2-tier cake and chilled bottles of bubbly waiting to be popped. Among the pastries, serve golden-frosted cupcakes (4 – recipe from Betty Crocker) in honor of the occasion. And have heirloom-worthy champagne glasses ready, like this Vera Wang Wedgwood with Love Gold Toasting Flute Pair (5 – from Macy’s).
For a matching virtual backdrop, add fun Aluminum Film Champagne Bottle and Goblet Hydrogen Balloons (5 – from Amazon) that you can set up in a snap! While a framed "50 Years of Marriage" burlap print (3 – from Amazon) would make a perfect prop. (Or a lovely anniversary gift for the couple, if you are a guest!)
Finally, from all the guests—and even others who can’t join the virtual festivities—a fabulous anniversary present would be an online group card, created on Kudo Board (7). You can fill it with messages, GIFs, photos, and videos from everyone sending love to the couple.
Now, all that sounds perfectly doable and pretty delightful, don’t you think? Go on, join the virtual occasion bandwagon. And have a wonderful, memorable Happy Anniversary!
