Names of Various Wedding Anniversaries

For how long have you been married? Do you know that every anniversary of your wedding has a specific name?

According to a tradition that originated in medieval Germany, “if a married couple lived to celebrate the twenty fifth anniversary of their wedding, the wife was presented by her friends and neighbours with a silver wreath, partly to congratulate them for the good fortune that had prolonged the lives of the couple for so many years and partly in recognition of the fact they must have enjoyed a fairly harmonious relationship.”

As such, a particular gift is offered to the celebrating coupled depending on the anniversary. I hope you’ll be inspired by the names of various wedding anniversaries below as practiced in traditional and modern USA as well as in the UK.
