Wedding anniversaries are special, and each
year there are traditional gifts that are given. The first year it is paper,
the twenty fifth is silver, the fortieth is ruby and the fiftieth is gold. As
we live longer some are even making to sixtieth, which is diamond.
Personalized anniversary gifts and decorations are an excellent way to bring the celebration together. The invitations can have information such as the names of the couple, the anniversary being celebrated and messages.
Whether the anniversary celebration is inside or outside, a welcome sign can let people know they’ve found the right spot. The sign can be the color of the year being celebrated. A ruby sign with white wording makes a beautiful sign for the fortieth anniversary. A black sign with gold lettering is great for the fiftieth anniversary; adding a splash of prestige.
Many people want to insert both sentiment and humor into their celebrations. Poster boards can be put up that show the anniversary, what the traditional gift is if it is for a twenty fifth anniversary, fortieth anniversary or fiftieth anniversary.
Friends and family can buy them for the couple, expressing love and joy that they are celebrating. Other party props can be added. Some are humorous. These draw attention to the ups and downs a couple goes through and the imperfections each, as a human being has.
An anniversary photobooth can be set up so all of the participants can take special pictures. These booths are frames that have information about the year of the wedding, the anniversary being celebrated and the names of the couple. Disposable cameras can be placed around the room so that pictures can be taken for the couple to add to their collection. That should include some from the photobooth.
When planning the party, there are many things to consider. One is invitations. No matter which wedding anniversary is being celebrated, personalized invitations are a good way to get the information about the date, the activities and other aspects of the celebration.
A recent fiftieth anniversary included the couple renewing their vows, followed by a picnic. After that there was a dinner. All of this can be included in the invitations so that people who may not be able to attend one event can attend another.
Thank you cards are another thing to consider. Having personalized cards makes it a lot easier to write them and more meaningful to the recipient. Many of the gifts for the twenty fifth, fortieth and fiftieth anniversaries are expensive and acknowledging them is important.
Speaking of gifts, couple gifts are often a great way to go. These can be personalized to make them even more special. For the twenty fifth wedding anniversary a plush blanket and throw pillow with the anniversary and the couple’s name would be great. This is particularly true if they live in an environment that gets cold.
Silver wind chimes that are engraved are another good couple’s gift. These can be hung indoors as a decoration for those who don’t appreciate the sound or outdoors for those who enjoy it. A silver wine chiller can be used indoors and out as well.
