Wedding anniversaries

do you know someone who is about to celebrate a wedding anniversary?

Would a gift of bedsocks on your woollen wedding anniversary start the seven-year itch? Would you be delighted to receive a steam iron or a vacuum cleaner to celebrate eight years of wedded bliss?

Finding attractive gifts for some of the early anniversaries, such as Iron at six years and Steel at eleven, would tax anyone's imagination. Anniversary gifts become more expensive with the passing years. Rubies, emeralds and other precious stones mark the achievement of forty years onwards.

Despite the best efforts of those wonderful advertising people who invented Father's Day and started the Christmas period in August to boost sales, we only make a fuss over the later anniversaries - silver, golden, ruby and diamond.

Diamond weddings
There are two diamond wedding anniversaries. Originally, 75 years was the diamond wedding and 60 did not count, but, after Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee at 60 years, the practice was adopted for weddings. Very few couples survive to celebrate 75 years of marriage - unless they were married as children, as happens in some eastern religions - so 60 years is more practical.

 
If you are keen and imaginative, here is a complete list of anniversaries-
1 Cotton 10 Tin 30 Pearl
2 Paper 11 Steel 35 Coral
3 Leather 12 Silk or fine linen 40 Ruby
4 Flower or fruit 13 Lace 45 Sapphire
5 Wooden 14 Ivory 50 Golden
6 Iron or sugar-candy 15 Crystal 55 Emerald
7 Woollen 20 China 60 Diamond
8 Bronze or electrical appliances 25 Silver 70 Platinum
9 Copper or pottery     75 Diamond (again)

 

Anniversary Gift Ideas

Traditionally, each wedding anniversary is celebrated by giving a gift made from a different material. The first anniversary is symbolized with paper, and from there anniversary gifts become more precious or scarce to reflect the growing number of years a couple has remained together.

Wedding Anniversary speeches/toasts or poems will be automatically emailed to you within 60 seconds of our receiving your order. You will receive a selection of suitable wedding anniversary speeches/toasts or poems. Whether it's silver, ruby, diamond, golden or any other anniversary our speeches/toasts and poems really add sparkle to the occasion. You will receive a selection of suitable speeches/toasts any one of which may be used individually. Alternatively, you can choose selected pieces from your speeches.

Use the yearly theme to wrap your gift or trim it with any item made from that year's material.

Go a step further and make the theme material a carrier for your gift.
-Tuck a ring in a leather wallet.
-Tie a cluster of roses together with a bracelet.
-Hide a necklace inside the pocket of a silk robe.
-Fold a cozy woolen shawl around another gift.

When Tradition Won't Work

Ivory is traditional for the fourteenth anniversary, but most new ivory cannot be imported to the US. You can find items made from vintage ivory, but if you're among those who do not wish to own the material at all you might want to look at ivory alternatives, made from nuts and seeds of palm trees and other vegetation.

Coral isn't as protected as ivory, but it is another substance that many people do not think should be removed from nature. Choose an alternative for your thirty-fifth anniversary, or take a diving trip to see the real thing!
