You have the perfect photos of you and your partner ready to post on the ‘gram, but you're stuck thinking of a caption. This can be challenging any day of the week, let alone a time as special as your anniversary. You want to write something that conveys just how important this person is to you but, depending on your personality, you may not want to post a whole novel describing your love story over social media. Cue this list of pithy anniversary caption ideas to help.
Just as every couple is different, every person will have their own preferences on how they choose to represent their relationship online. If you’re a casual duo that has more of a BFF dynamic, maybe you opt for one of the funny captions below. Hopeless romantics may want something cute, or even a song or movie quote that holds significance for the two of you. There are also options for celebrating specific occasions, such as one- or two-year anniversaries, but if none of those suits, you can peruse Valentine’s Day captions and Pride-related captions for further inspiration. Last but not least, no matter how much you nail your Instagram caption, we suggest buying an anniversary gift or planning a thoughtful date night activity that the two of you can enjoy together on your happy day.
