Anniversary Video Ideas


Tell the Story of Love


Give an anniversary gift that is so memorable that they'll speak about it for years to come.


Speak from the heart and celebrate those precious moments that your partner or the couple have spent together. Look through your camera roll to find highlights of their relationships through video or photos.


Celebrate those cherished moments. What's unique about a video is that you can add words to your images that share how you feel. Including text allows you to express how you feel about your partner or the couple.



Milestone Anniversaries


Give the gift of love for a milestone anniversary. Whether you're celebrating a milestone anniversary or a six-month anniversary, celebrate it with a VidDay video gift.


Surprise your special couple or partner — get everyone in on the love. Celebrate the years that the loving relationship has gone on with photos and videos from friends and family.


Take the special couple back throughout the years, showing them how far they've come.


Reminisce on the Good Memories


Have friends and family reminisce about the upcoming anniversary and the fun memories they shared with the couple.


Have friends and family speak about a trip they took together, or that one night they went out to dinner, and you wouldn't believe what happened. However, there is no right or wrong way to make an anniversary video.


A video gift should be an expression of your love. If it's meaningful to you, then that special couple will be just as touched.

Tips on How to Make an Anniversary Video


Inside the anniversary video VidDay app

Plan it Out


Before you begin, think about how you'll want to organize your video.


Will the videos and photos be chronological, starting from when they first met? Or do you want to show their progression from childhood until now?


You can show their relationship from each other's perspective or keep it as them as a couple. You're able to do it all with our drag and drop video editors on your VidDay Event Page.


Think of the flow you want to create and drag and drop away!

Edit Your Video


Make sure your submissions are the right length.

  • Is there dead air?

  • Is there space left at the end?

Don't worry — you can trim off the excess in our video editor. Or, if you want, we can take care of that for you! Just let us know.


We recommend breaking up your videos with pictures. We recommend adding three photos before or after a two-minute video. It's not a hard rule, just something we like, but get creative and see what you want.


Choose a Cover Photo


Select a fantastic photo of your partner or the beautiful couple for a cover photo.


This photo is on all of your submission invitations. It helps to add a personal touch for those you want to participate. If you can't find enough images on your own, ask your friends and family to upload their favorite photos of your partner or the special couple.



Anniversary Video Editing Tips & Tricks

Personalize your Anniversary Video


VidDay lets you match the couple's personality to select beautiful themes. Choose any theme that matches their taste and personality — add in some text cards to make a smooth progression.


Add bright colors and a fun theme for that fun-loving couple, or keep it more neutral for a more elegant feel for that special someone. Give your video the pizzazz it deserves — from our most popular Collage Theme to our Watercolor theme. There are many to choose from that will fit everyone's tastes.


Check out our themes here.


Photo and Video Editors


All of the uploads of the special couple will be on your VidDay Event Page. From here, you can edit and adjust these photos and video clips with our VidDay editor.


You can edit off extra time off a video, flip and rotate or leave them just the way they are. Make your Anniversary video gift a little more special by choosing filters for photos and crop them how you see fit.

Choose the Best Anniversary Music


Pick a tune that strikes the right mood or makes you think of your partner or that special couple. Whether you want a feel-good kind of theme or some classic charm, our music library allows you to choose any background music that suits that special someone's personality.
