The Victorians, with their penchant for classifying everything, created a list of symbolic wedding anniversary gifts that is still very much in vogue today.
Here are the traditional anniversary gifts for each year:
7. Copper or Wool
8. Electrical Appliances
10. Tin or Aluminum
35. Coral and Jade
A number of couples choose to celebrate their anniversaries by having a ceremony to renew their wedding vows. Other couples, married in a civil ceremony for one reason or another, choose to reaffirm their vows under religious auspices. As with any other invitation, invitations to reaffirmation ceremonies should reflect the formality of the occasion.
