Celebrating Your Wedding Anniversary

Anniversaries are more than a day that marks another year spent together. It's a day to celebrate your accomplishments as a couple, as well as a day to remember what makes the other person truly special and worth celebrating.

While every anniversary is important, there are a few milestones that deserve a little extra attention. As with tradition, the 1 year, 5, year, 10 year, 25 year, and 50 year anniversaries all have a special gift giving etiquette to follow. 1 year is paper, 5 is wood, and 10 is tin. Then, for the lovebirds growing old together - 25 is silver and 50 is gold. Can you believe some of the gift giving traditions can be traced all the way back to the middle ages?!

We've gone one step further and incorporate that gift giving etiquette into the celebration for a truly festive event. After all, why just give a gold watch when you can also sip on a cocktail with edible gold pieces floating around? Think outside of the box to make these milestones truly special for you and your sweetie.
