50 Wedding Anniversary

The names of some anniversaries provide guidance for appropriate or traditional gifts for the spouses to give each other; if there is a party these can be brought by the guests or influence the theme or decoration. These gifts vary in different countries, but some years have well-established connections now common to most nations: 5th Wood, 10th Tin, 15th Crystal, 20th China, 25th Silver, 30th Pearl, 40th Ruby, 50th Gold, 60th Diamond, 70th Platinum. In English speaking countries the first, wooden, gift was cut on the day of celebration and then presented to the wife as a finished article before the next two quarter days had passed. The tradition may have originated in medieval Germany where, if a married couple lived to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their wedding, the wife was presented by her friends and neighbors with a silver wreath to congratulate them for the good fortune that had prolonged the lives of the couple. Over time the number of symbols expanded and the German tradition came to assign gifts that had direct connections with each stage of married life. The symbols have changed over time. For example, in the United Kingdom, diamond was a well known symbol for the 75th anniversary, but this changed to the now more common 60th anniversary after the Diamond Anniversary of Queen Victoria. The current monarch Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th year on the throne was widely marked as her Diamond Jubilee and commemorated in 2012.

In the Commonwealth realms, one can receive a message from the monarch for 60th, 65th, and 70th wedding anniversaries, and any wedding anniversary after that, currently sent as a greeting card. This is done by applying to Buckingham Palace in the United Kingdom, or to the Governor-General’s office in the other Commonwealth realms.

The season can also suggest a scheme: jewel tones in winter, for example, or lots of green in the spring. Black and white with an accent color, such as red, sets a striking backdrop. All white with gold accents is a classic combination for a 50th wedding anniversary.

The historic origins of wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy Roman Empire, when husbands crowned their wives with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary, and a gold wreath on the fiftieth. Later, principally in the twentieth century, commercialism led to the addition of more anniversaries being represented by a named gift.

Several months in advance, set a date. If important guests have unavoidable conflicts on or close to the actual anniversary, the couple may be willing to move the festivities to a different week or month if it allows everyone to be there. On the other hand, family members should make every effort to rearrange schedules for an occasion like this.

Don’t forget to decorate outdoors, too. Luminaria can line a walkway, clear white lights can twinkle in trees, or a big sign in the yard can let everyone know it’s a big day. Give younger kids sidewalk chalk to create hearts, and “happy anniversary” and “we love you” messages.
