WEDDING ANNIVERSARY COLORS, FLOWERS & JEWELRY

Wedding Anniversary Colors, Flowers & Jewelry

If you’ve celebrated a wedding anniversary, you’re probably aware of the traditional and modern anniversary gifts by year lists. These handy lists help you find a symbolic and meaningful anniversary gift for your spouse or another couple.

Each anniversary year is associated with a specific material that symbolizes that anniversary, from fragile paper (the symbol for the 1st year anniversary) to the strong and enduring diamond (the symbolic gift for the 60th anniversary). As years go by, the anniversary gifts increase in strength and substance, representing the growing strength of the married couple’s relationship.

In addition to the symbolic wedding anniversary gifts by year there are also colors, flowers, jewelry and gemstones associated with many of the years. These can further help guide your gift selections and help you plan decorations for your wedding anniversary parties.

Many of the traditional and modern anniversary gifts also coordinate with the designated colors, flowers and jewelry. For example, the 50th wedding anniversary material is gold — and so is the color and jewelry for that year, while the flowers of choice are yellow roses.

Take a look at the list of wedding anniversary colors, flowers and jewelry for each anniversary year to find inspiration and ideas for your next anniversary gift or anniversary bash.
