Couple celebrates 66th wedding anniversary for just $15.75

Couple Celebrates 66th Wedding Anniversary For Just $15.75


Toni and Joe have been married 66 years and spent their honeymoon night at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. To celebrate their anniversary, they went back to the same hotel and paid only $15.75, the price of their original room back in 1948. The rate for that same room today starts at $799.

Turns out any couple married at the Waldorf that is celebrating 50 years or more together can take advantage of the same offer as long as they have their original receipt.

Bridal Guide reports that the Waldorf has a little-known policy that allows couples to celebrate for the same price they originally paid. Another couple celebrated 60 years back in 2010 and the hotel honored their $26.72 receipt from 1950.

We wish both couples many more happy, healthy years together. And if you are married at the hotel ... save that receipt!

WOW! that's pretty amazing of The Waldorf-Astoria. Totally the opposite for my parent's 60th celebrated in Disney. Nothing special from the Disney people. As a matter of fact it was a very upsetting time for my folks and Disney did nothing even after several letters. :(

Very cool policy, but my God, $799 a night for a hotel room is just WRONG.

Oh sure, every couple saves the receipt from the hotel where they spent their wedding night. Why can't the hotel simply go back through its guest registries and find the couples name and give them the deal? Seems kind of chincey of the Waldorf Astoria to put the burden on the couple to have the receipt after so many years. Why be so cheap?

Well gee sometimes in life we are required to do our own work, not stand around and let others do it for us. But, thanks to liberalism, I guess everyone nowadays expects someone else to wipe their nose.

Terry and Mandy I agree with you completely .At 799 per night I'm sure there is a stampede of people married there 60 plus years ago (with original receits in hand ) Just waiting to take advantage of this generous (but little known) offer ? I just wonder if they actually made the couple pay the $15 That would really be cheap!

What a great story! Cheers to the couple(s) and kudos to the Waldorf-Astoria! It's a nice policy to hear about in this day and age.

I have receipts from major stores that are only seven years old - they are pretty much blank due to the ink fading away but they are still "the original receipt" I write the purchase date in real ink on them now and staple it to the original paperwork.

photocopy the receipts. Its the heat sensitive paper of the original receipt is what makes them fade. Photocopy and they'll last forever.
