I’d like to think I’m a modern type of girl, but when it comes down to it, there is something to be said about the traditions of marriage – from the vows to the day of customs to the special gifting on your anniversary – and all those who have come before me following the same handed-down practices.
I love this cultivated list designed by Emily Ayer over at Southern Weddings Magazine. It gives both traditional and modern gift examples for your highly anticipated wedding anniversary. An interesting fact by Emily: each material has a symbolic value in the traditional anniversary gift list and the value increases every year to symbolize the increased investment each partner makes in the other.
My sixth year anniversary is coming up in November. Candy – this one is a cinch! Shelvie loooves Hershey Reece’s. Although, for me, I think he should jump right on down to the 60th gift idea every year! easy peesy.. He’ll never have to guess about whether going traditional or modern again! ha!
