You’ve reached one of the first big milestones in marriage: the 10th wedding anniversary. Being married for 10 years has required a continual evolvement and maturity of your relationship. As you celebrate this occasion, here are some 10 wedding anniversary ideas and symbols to help you plan a wonderful and meaningful celebration.
The traditional gift to mark the 10th wedding anniversary is tin and aluminum. The pliability of tin and aluminum is a symbol of how a successful marriage needs to be flexible and durable and how it can be bent without being broken. Some gift ideas include aluminum watches, aluminum cookware, or tin candle holders. Try making a tin “time capsule” with clippings, pictures, songs and memories from the day or year you were married and the day or year of your anniversary.
Not only is the diamond the gemstone that represents the 10th wedding anniversary, it is also considered the modern gift for the occasion. Diamonds are one of the strongest and most durable substances on the planet. These days, diamonds are the most popular choice for engagement rings and have become a symbol of love. Find the perfect piece of diamond jewelry, whether it’s a pair of earrings, a pendant necklace, or beautiful ring. Better yet, create your own custom jewelry piece featuring your choice of diamond or diamonds.
The flower that symbolizes 10 years of marriage is the daffodil. This flower represents joy, cheerfulness, and happiness. If you are celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary, you have no doubt experienced all of these emotions with your spouse. A beautiful potted daffodil or a lovely bouquet is a great gift to send her on this special day.
Celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary is a big milestone in your relationship. Make sure that you showcase your enduring marriage with thoughtful and meaningful gifts that will be memorable for the next 10 years.
