What flowers to give on the fiftieth (gold) wedding anniversary?


Leaning on the value of gold, is that the fiftieth wedding anniversary, or Gold Anniversary [1] is symbolic of a relationship so unique, enduring and special, that it is the standard by and against which the dreams and aspirations of every couple when married is measured, that of a lifetime together. Of a lifetime of good and bad, sickness and health, of everything that could possibly happen in fifty years and that way well into the golden years very few couples are fortunate enough to enjoy.


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.

    There is nothing much one can say about how obviously wondrous it is to see a couple remain, be together, after and for fifty years. For fifty years is not only to have been through good and bad, sickness and health, is to have defied the odds of love and life as both life and love happen. Much more so when you come to consider not only will more than 50% [5] of couples will have divorced before they see themselves together for that long, but also because marriages are coming now later in life.

    All of which make of fiftieth wedding anniversaries a statistical oddity, really, and one worthy of the greatest of celebrations. One to spend what one would otherwise inherit to others and to not only celebrate but also and most significantly be grateful. And not only the time spent together, but for the great fortune of having been able to share with someone and up until the very cusp of ones golden years, is worthy of celebration like no other.

    For life, love as it happens, doesn’t happen like that for all or most, not even for a significant number of, but for the fewest and most resilient and tenacious, the luckiest, of couples.
