Miscellaneous Monday: Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

Here at West Weddings we simply can’t get enough of weddings! And whenever one of our brides gets married, we love featuring her special day within our pages and seeing all the gorgeous photos. The four real weddings in our summer issue are absolutely superb! 

The beauty about weddings is that after the big day you can look forward to special wedding anniversaries every year.  Traditionally different materials have been associated with each year following a couple’s nuptials starting with paper. We’ve done a little bit of research and found out what the first 5 anniversaries are linked to:

  • 1st wedding anniversary is paper 
  • 2nd wedding anniversary is cotton
  • 3rd wedding anniversary is leather
  • 4th wedding anniversary is linen or silk
  • 5th wedding anniversary is wood

 Who would have thought that after 10 years of marriage you should get each other something as special as tin or white steel?

Here’s a little infographic created by Unusual Gifts with 10 great ideas for the first few years of your marriage.
