Wedding Anniversaries

On Wednesdays I share everything wedding with you: tips, projects, organisation, photos, faux-pas, fun things and golden rules I ‘learned’ from my own wedding. I feel I need to give something back to the fabulous blog community who helped me stay sane and enjoy every second of my ‘big day’.

Andi and I just had our first wedding anniversary last October. In preparation for this occasion I did a bit of research on what you traditionally do or give for your first anniversary. And I stumbled across a list of anniversaries, which I found just adorable. Obviously every anniversary has a kind of theme, which can wonderfully translated into activities and presents. I often didn’t like the suggested presents themselves, so I decided just to go with the overall topic and let my imagination run wild. And there are some real challenges, I can tell you, e.g. 12 1/2 years is parsley anniversary. Oh well, at least I have some years left to come up with a really awesome idea ;-)

So here is my wedding anniversary topic list:

2nd Cotton
3rd Leather
4th Silk
5th Wood
6th Tin
7th Copper
8th Iron sheet
9th Porcelain
10th Roses
11th Steel
12th Nickel
12 ½ Parsley
13th Chrystal
14th Ivory
15th Glass

20th China
25th Silver
