It is a long way from the paper wedding to the golden wedding. Nevertheless, there are many couples who are granted to celebrate this special day. After more than 50 years together, there are many memories to cherish. Of course, the appropriate gifts for the golden wedding may not be missing. The same applies to the traditions and customs that can be perfectly integrated into the festivities for the golden wedding.
When is the golden wedding anniversary?
Golden wedding is a special day in the life of every married couple. This anniversary marks the 50th wedding anniversary and is almost always accompanied by a big party. Whether you prefer to spend this day in a small circle or organize a big party depends on you. There are no rules or any obligations: After all, it’s your big day.
But what does the gold wedding actually have to do with gold? The most obvious properties of precious metal are its stability, luster and preciousness. For most people, it is clear that once your marriage has lasted this long, these characteristics must also apply to it.
It goes without saying that numerous congratulations on the golden wedding anniversary arrive on this day. Nevertheless, it can be useful to have some ideas for the golden wedding:
- Invitation cards for your gold wedding should be sent with sufficient advance notice. According to the occasion, the cards could be decorated with gold leaf, for example.
- You can plan a church ceremony to renew your wedding vows on your 50th wedding anniversary.
- If you do not want to celebrate at home, you can of course visit a restaurant. How about the restaurant where you already celebrated 50 years ago?
- A beautifully decorated table is one of the ideas that should not be missing for the golden wedding. It doesn’t matter whether you choose a buffet or a three-course menu: The main thing is that you feel good all around.
- Besides a picture show, speeches can be a good idea. In this way, your longtime friends can convey their congratulations on the golden wedding anniversary.
By the way, the golden wedding anniversary is the ideal time for a very special gift. After 50 years of marriage, however, it’s not so easy – neither for the couple nor for their friends. Instead of just letting your golden wedding anniversary pass, you could use your celebration of honor to start a new hobby. For example, with the collection of coins. Coin collections have always combined two worlds – the investment and the pleasure. For example, for the Golden Wedding Anniversary, you can wish for a 1812 – A New World Map Terrestrial Dome (Polished Plate 2018 RAM) from your children. Or you can opt for other specimens like the Winged Victory High Relief 2021 1 oz Gold or the Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1 oz 2014 PP Gold Australia.
