Silver Wedding

Gift Recommendations And Suggestions

Welcome to our silver wedding gift page, this really is one of the big ones so if your resources permit you might like to push the boat out. The 25th anniversary is one of the most important relationship landmarks and it is also one of just three anniversaries that were originally marked by the giving of tokens or presents, the others being the 12 and a half and 50th anniversaries (all division of 100 years). This is a tradition that dates back to the times of the Holy Roman Empire when it was expected that a husband would crown their wife with silver garlands or wreaths on the 25th anniversary of their wedding.

Some historians consider that this is part of an even older tradition. In some countries the 25th is celebrated by the creation of an arch through which the couple are invited to walk ahead of a celebration, the 12 and half year event often uses just half an arch. This is a slightly different approach than the modern commercial desire to celebrate every year. It seems as if the landmarks (25 and 50) were the real focus of anniversary thinking and the 12.5 celebration is only important in its relationship to the silver wedding event, being the mid-point between the wedding day and the 25th commemoration.

The Twenty Fifth - The Quadranscentennial

The origins of the wedding anniversary are just under 1,000 years old and thought to have originated in Central Europe. At that time life expectancy was significantly less than it is today, for both partners in a marriage to live together for 25, let alone 50 years was seen as something remarkable.

Silver Presents

Silver is the established theme for the 25th gift. The present can be actual silver, silver plate, part silver, silver in colour or silver in some other way. The number 25 also features prominently as a presents. It also seems very common to have a permanent record of the occasion, engraving on gifts for this and the 50th commemoration is a widespread practise.
