About 13th Wedding Anniversaries
What is the 13th Wedding Anniversary Called & Symbol?
Congratulations on your 13th wedding anniversary, also known as the lace anniversary. Lace signifies refined beauty and elegance, just as a marriage of thirteen years signifies a polished and perfected love. The number thirteen is associated with luck, but it is not just luck that has helped you to this celebration.
How to celebrate your 13th Wedding Anniversary
You might wish to celebrate by planning a trip to the home of lace making, and both Nottingham and France are well known for centuries of this beautiful cloth. Lace can be found in many guises and some lace lingerie would certainly set the scene for a passionate night ahead.
The traditional gemstone for the 13th wedding anniversary is the citrine, known as the success stone, and the modern day alternative is the moonstone, known as passionate love that will fly you to the moon.
13th Wedding anniversary Gifts for Him, Her and the Couple
It is said that if you give your lover a moonstone when the moon is full you will always share passion together. Filigree lace ear rings would make a perfect romantic gift, in keeping with the lace theme, but combined with either of the two gemstones would be a treasured and valuable gift for years to come.
The flower for the 13th anniversary is the chrysanthemum, and the hollyhock, both signifying ambition, fertility, honesty and sincerity. A bouquet made up of hollyhocks and chrysanthemums would make a thoughtful and romantic gift, or can be planted in your garden to be a constant reminder of your honesty and sincerity to each other.
The colour of the 13th wedding anniversary is white, the symbol of innocence and purity, it is also considered a sign of perfection.
Maybe take a trip to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna to incorporate white into your celebrations.
