Origins of Celebrating Wedding Anniversaries
Historians trace the origins of wedding anniversaries to the period of Roman Empire, when husbands would crown their wives with a silver wreath on 25th year of marriage and with a gold wreath on their 50th years of marriage. The origins of wedding anniversaries have also been associated to medieval times in Europe, where silver and gold garlands were presented by husbands to their wives on their 25th years and 50th years of marriage. In this way, the silver and golden jubilee wedding anniversaries came into being celebrated.
Over the centuries the symbols and customs have changed. The origins of the current custom of giving gifts on wedding anniversaries date to 1937. In that year, the American National Retail Jeweler Association introduced an elaborate list of gifts which can be given every year on the occasion of wedding anniversary right up to the silver jubilee celebrations. In the beginning the custom was to give household items as gifts on wedding anniversaries. Today different kinds and varieties of gifts are given, like expensive dresses or exquisite expensive pieces of jewellery.
