What flowers to give on the first (paper) wedding anniversary?


Leaning on the "white sheet of paper" metaphor, is that the first wedding anniversary, or Paper Anniversary [1] is symbolic of what, if not everything, is yet to be written about the wedded couple’s history. About how even if together for a long time before getting married, everything changed after doing so.

About how the first year was mostly of vibrating, learning and getting used to be with and around one another as married couples do. About looking forward figuring out what comes next and starting in earnest anew and fresh for the lifetime of adventures that await you and your loving partner.


When presenting others with gifts, it's always a great idea to show them how mindful you are, about not only the nuance and meaning of the celebration taking place, but about who they are and how they vibrate, about how you feel about them. Wedding anniversaries are as much about looking back and celebrating the time together, the growing and learning, the shared stories, the great (and not so great,) as it is about the strength of the bond between the couple and how it becomes stronger and stronger for each year that passes.

Building on that premise is that anniversaries get their names after materials of different strength and value, is that the greater the anniversary number, the grater the strength or value of the material from which they get their name from. [2] Materials are not the only symbols to represent wedding anniversaries though, for these are also associated with different flowers and colors. When giving flowers though, it is always useful to lean on their rich symbolism, for with flowers you can truly say it all.
