I am going to combine all answers so that it is easy for everyone to see. All credit goes to Hellion, Gamow and Vikram.

  1. AGE BUT

    Age before beauty (B-U-T)

  2. marri Ag e

    Ag=silver with marriage = Silver wedding anniversary

  3. wWoOlOfL

    Wolf in WOOL = Wolf in sheep's clothing

  4. "24 Hours"

    Multiple possibilities:
    Call it a day
    Quote of the day

  5. TRADI TION

    Break with tradition

  6. HEAD ACHE

    Splitting headache

  7. WHEATHER

    Bad spell of weather

  8. SGEG

    Permutation of EGGS = Scrambled eggs

  9. TOSYOBSYOBWN

    BOYS BOYS backwards, inside TOWN = The Boys are Back in Town

  10. ALL world

    It's a small world after all!

    $\begingroup$ 1 and 10: great solutions! For 7, I think it should rather be "spell of bad weather". $\endgroup$ – Gamow Feb 15 '15 at 16:22
  • $\begingroup$ @Gamow, I think you've got it. Changed my answer to suit. (with one slight alteration.) $\endgroup$ – Hellion Feb 15 '15 at 17:01

The answers for 2, 3, 8, and 9:

2:

"Ag=silver with marriage" = "Silver wedding anniversary"

3:

"wolf in WOOL" = "Wolf in sheep's clothing"

8:

"SGEG = permutation of EGGS" = "Scrambled eggs"

9:

"SYOBSYOB = BOYS BOYS backwards, inside TOWN" = "The Boys are Back in Town"

and the answer for 7 in collaboration with Hellion

7:

"badly spelled version of WEATHER" = "Spell of bad weather"

and perhaps an answer for

5:

"a break in TRADITION" = "Break with tradition"

    $\begingroup$ What is "all day packed"? I've never heard this phrase and a Google does not come up with anything promising right off hand. $\endgroup$ – feelinferrety Mar 3 '16 at 20:15
  • $\begingroup$ @feelinferrety I had this same thought $\endgroup$ – question_asker Mar 3 '16 at 20:22
