Whether you are approaching your 1st wedding anniversary or you 50th, every year has a special meaning and represents a significant milestone in your commitment to one another.
Wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy Roman Empire (962 – 1806) when husbands crowned their wives with a silver wreath on their 25th anniversary and a gold wreath on their 50th.
During the 20th Century, it developed that a named gift would represent each individual year that the couple had been together.
Here is the traditional wedding gift list:
1st Paper 13th Lace
2nd Cotton 14th Ivory
3rd Leather 15th Crystal
4th Fruit, flowers 20th China
5th Wood 25th Silver
6th Sugar 30th Pearl
