26 Romantic Instagram Captions For Your First Anniversary Together

Ad failed to load

The first year spent with a new partner is certainly an occasion worth celebrating. At this point, the height of the honeymoon phase jitters have probably started to settle, and you have likely gotten a fight or two under your belt for good measure. Commemorating this special anniversary will likely call for a sappy Instagram post (or three), which means you'll need some romantic Instagram captions that will remind your partner (and everyone else) just how grateful you are to have them in your life.

If you and your bae want to make things work in the end, there is certainly a long road ahead, but year number one often makes for some of the most exciting and memorable times. Chances are, you've both met each other's family and close friends, giving you a ton of insight into where the come from and who they are at their core. You've both probably also begun to see the flaws and not-so-perfect sides of one another. And although this was likely a reality check, the good news is, you've decided that the two of you accept both the good and the bad about each other.

After a romantic day spent together, choosing just one pic to share with family and friends is definitely going to be tricky, but paired with one of these heartfelt captions, you pretty much can't go wrong.

I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that there's absolutely no need to over think the captions you use to celebrate you and your bae. Just speak from the heart. If you want to go with something more personalized — a lyric from a you both love, a sweet line from your favorite movie or TV show, or your pet name for them, followed by a solid emoji cluster — that's also totally sweet. Here's hoping for many more anniversaries for you.
