Good ideas for a 60th wedding anniversary party include a celebration themed by the couple's journey of love that includes photo collages of the couple through the years, slideshows displaying pivotal moments in the marriage and a renewal of vows in front of guests. A 60th wedding anniversary can also focus on celebrating the couple's accomplishments by honoring their vows with a wedding reception.
Commonly referred to as the diamond anniversary, the 60th wedding anniversary celebration can focus on diamonds in the rough. For example, the couple can pinpoint moments in the marriage that were noteworthy, such as dates children and grandchildren were born, promotions at jobs, travels endured and new friends acquired throughout the years. At a special celebratory reception, guests can compile special memories of the couple on a poster board, play trivia games with information about the couple and present the couple with gifts to honor the couple's union. Another good idea to celebrate the marriage is to choose a memorable location where the couple met, celebrated a previous anniversary or said their wedding vows to gather. For example, if the groom proposed under a tree near the family's home, invite guests to join in a picnic celebration near the tree, and decorate the tree with ribbons, streamers and balloons.
