Wedding Anniversaries

The celebration of wedding anniversaries dates back to Roman times when husbands gave their wives a silver wreath for 25 years of marriage, and a gold wreath for 50 years. Since then 25 years of marriage has been called the Silver Wedding Anniversary and 50 years of marriage has been called the Golden Wedding Anniversary.

Twentieth century commercialism then led to the addition of more gifts to represent other years. By the 1930’s there was a gift suggestion for the first year and milestone years such as 10th, 20th, 25th and 50th. Over the years more were added and the gift list updated and modernised by various greeting card companies.
