Most couples celebrate their wedding anniversary every year. It is a lovely time to reflect and reminisce on the previous year and re-live the memories of the special day you both had when you got married. I think it’s a lovely idea to surprise your other half with a Luxury Castle a night away or a nice meal together. Our Castles have become very popular for couples wanting to celebrate their anniversary in the surroundings where they tied the knot. Luxury Castle Hire have Castles all over the UK, we can tailor to your needs and meet you with your budget.
The historic origins of wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy Roman Empire when husbands crowned their wives with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary and a gold wreath on the fiftieth. Later, principally in the twentieth century, commercialism led to the addition of more anniversaries being represented by a named gift.
Over time the number of symbols expanded and the German tradition came to assign gifts that had direct connections with each stage of married life. The symbols have changed over time. For example, in the United Kingdom, diamond was a well-known symbol for the 75th anniversary, but this changed to the now more common 60th anniversary after Queen Victoria’s 60 years on the throne was widely marked as her Diamond Jubilee.
Here are some of the traditional gifts:
- 1st Anniversary – Paper
- 2nd Anniversary – Cotton
- 3rd Anniversary – Leather
- 4th Anniversary – Fruit and Flowers
- 5th Anniversary – Wood
- 10th Anniversary – Tin and Aluminum
- 20th Anniversary – China
