The first thing to know about anniversaries is that there are different wedding anniversaries. And each year has a different name. It would be great to keep it in mind when you make up your happy wedding anniversary wishes. Each anniversary has a different meaning and gift. A long time ago, these gifts used to represent different stages of marriage. But many people prefer merely to help couples furnish their lives together.
Take a look at the names of the wedding anniversaries and get inspired!
1st Anniversary – Paper
The first year of marriage is like a blank sheet of paper: clean and fragile.

Fruit and flowers show how your marriage blossoms and your love ripens.
5th Anniversary – Wood

25th Wedding Anniversary – Silver
Silver is a precious metal that needs to be polished regularly to continue to gleam.

35th Wedding Anniversary – Coral
Coral has magic to protect against illness and danger. So does your marriage.
40th Wedding Anniversary – Ruby
Red rubies are hard stones of the color of love.
