Anniversaries only come once a year. Thank goodness! Right? Anniversaries are extremely important times of celebration and recognition in a relationship. When it's time for your anniversary, write something special in your anniversary card. It's not enough to just sign your name after the message that comes with the card. It won't reflect the close and personal relationship that you have. Write something meaningful.
Use the following anniversary messages to help inspire you to come up with your own words. Choose one that works for your relationship or the couple you know. Think about the things you love about your significant other. Include some of those specific things to make your message personal. Add a little extra to one of the following anniversary message examples.
Anniversary Card Messages
I'll continue to feel grateful as you continue to love me. Thanks for another amazing year with you.
My time with you is valuable. Today, we get to celebrate the time that we've been blessed to spend together. Thank you for your commitment and investment in our relationship.
You deserve for me to tell you how much I appreciate you more often. Time flies when I'm having fun living life with my best friend.
Thanks for being such a great friend, lover, and partner. Our anniversaries are a genuine time of celebration and gratitude.
I hope that a relationship that started with cookies, a fishing trip, and a turtle can always stay pure and simple. It's still fun to flirt with you. I can always depend on you to laugh just when I give up trying to make you. I love you.
Happy Anniversary to the person who makes me happy!
It has been another year. 'Time flies when you're having fun.' Happy Anniversary!
Once a year seems too rare to tell you how much you mean to me. You mean a lot!
I appreciate your love, understanding, listening, humor, flexibility and energy. I know loving me is hard work. Happy anniversary!
Today is an awesome day to acknowledge how awesome it is to have you.
I love having you as my (wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend). You are a blessing from God. Happy Anniversary!
When I'm around you, I know that I can be my true self. You are the only person I can say that about. Thank you for accepting me.
I know neither of us is perfect. We will always have that in common. Thanks for being o.k. with that.
The years get faster and faster. Maybe that is because I'm having more and more fun with you. Happy Anniversary!
I am glad that I am able to share my life with you. This anniversary marks another year of our lives that we have been blessed to have together. Happy anniversary!
I am glad that you let me be myself. I don't know that I could do that with anyone else without the person thinking I am crazy. Maybe I am a little crazy.
Happy Anniversary to someone I can talk to, laugh with, cry with, and cause some trouble with.
If we were the only two people left in the world, there would still be plenty of love to reach around earth.
I don't say it often enough even though you deserve it all the time. I love you!
I think it's time to let you know that I've been dating someone, and I really love them. It's you!
There could never be anyone to replace you.
I knew we'd make it this long when I married you. I'm also predicting that we'll make it much longer.
We may have had some challenges over our time together, but we have been persistent in our commitment.
Time is a measurement that is irrelevant to the everlasting love we share.
There's no one in the world I'd rather have spent the last year with than you.
I am smiling on the inside because I have you in my life. This last year has been another great one. Let's do another one together.
Although we had days that weren't perfect, I wouldn't trade any of them that I spent with you.
You are my best friend. And we're much more than just friends.
Forever wouldn't be long enough to be with the most important person in my life.
It's hard to think of the right words to say to express my feelings about you. I'll have to show you instead. Actions speak louder than words.
You are always the right person to have around at the right time. Right now, I just need you to be my anniversary date.
I still remember our first kiss. It was magical. I was nervous. I still get butterflies in my stomach sometimes even now.
We share many things together, but my favorite thing to share with you is my time.

A paper cut and lemon juice, pizza and heartburn, and you and me are just a few things that aren't supposed to go together but usually end up that way. Happy anniversary!
Each year that goes by reminds me of how far we've come. Hopefully we have many more years to go together. I like to think the glass is half empty.

Sometimes I try to think about what life would be like without you. All I can come up with is a boring, peaceful life. Happy Anniversary! Here's to a little conflict!
You are my one and only. You are the one and only person who can put up with me!
I hope that you can say that each year we're together gets a little easier. If you can't, then I hope your patience is getting stronger.
The more time we're together, the more we seem to rub off on each other. We're practically the same person now.
