Wedding Anniversaries : From Paper to Diamond

Anniversaries

Everyone knows the 60th wedding anniversary is Diamond, but would you know what the 27th is?

It was American etiquette queen Emily Post who first introduced the convention of buying certain presents to mark each year of marriage, back in 1922. But over 90 years have passed since then and ideas on the perfect gift have changed too. Where paper might once have cut it, your first anniversary should now be celebrated with a clock according to Modern gift buying etiquette.

There’s one thing that hasn’t changed however… Whether it’s your 2nd wedding anniversary or your 60th, you’ll be in a whole heap of trouble if you forget it! So bookmark this page, and never miss another anniversary with our useful year-by-year guide to the perfect gift, traditional or modern. (And the 27th is sculpture by the way. No, we didn’t know either.)

Here are some useful decorations for some of the better known anniversaries http://www.theeventexperts.co.uk/shop/birthdays/wedding-anniversaries/index.html
