Anniversary Symbols


Want to know the anniversary symbols associated with each year of marriage?  Check out the chart below.  It covers the first 15 years and all the milestone anniversaries after that.

Why just these years? Because these are the only years that count!Smiley


No, not really.  Actually, it's because the traditional wedding anniversary gift list only includes these years.  Some newer lists, however, include more years.  Our list has just the original years but we include many modern anniversary symbols in addition to the traditional ones. 


Would you like to know the meanings behind the symbols? Then make sure you pay a visit to our wedding anniversary meanings page.  Don't get caught giving your spouse a "wood" gift and not be able to explain why!  Wouldn't you like to impress them with your inside knowledge?

Speaking of knowledge, do you know the gemstones associated with each anniversary?  Knowing that could come in handy when asking for or giving those special pearl earrings!

Now about the wedding anniversary flower . . . Have you thought about that?  What's a special day without a bouquet of flowers? Find out what flower is the one for your year.

Oh, and one last thing. Click on any of the pictures below and our gallery will appear.  You can then scroll through all the pictures on this page.  Hope you enjoy!
