About 21st Wedding Anniversaries
What is the 21st Wedding Anniversary name & symbol?
After reaching the milestone of being married for 20 years and celebrating your China wedding anniversary, the 21st anniversary may seem like a bit of an anticlimax, but it needn’t be.
We are, after all, in the 21st century and you can celebrate yet another year of your happy marriage in a variety of ways. In many countries, 21 is the age of consent which means that this year you can perhaps indulge in trying new things that you’ve never done before, or possibly even be allowed to do 😉
How to celebrate your 21st Wedding Anniversary
A bit of adventure is a great way to keep a relationship exciting and fun even after 21 years! How about booking an adventure type holiday or trying something wild that you could do together, such as a skydive, a bungee jump, a supercar racing experience or even some whitewater rafting?
If you’ve already done all of these things together then you’ll have to go even more extreme for your 21st wedding anniversary.
There is no traditional gift that you should give for a 21st anniversary but the modern suggested gifts are brass and nickel. If you want to go with the brass theme you could surprise your loved one with a night out at a beautiful concert, where there should be a brass band element to it.
A jazz band or soul band evening would probably be even better offering the right music and atmosphere for a romantic anniversary celebration.
What is the 21st Anniversary Gift?
If you want to go with the nickel theme, how about a surprise romantic weekend trip to Amsterdam? Up until the the introduction of the euro in 2002, the Dutch Guilder was made purely of nickel! It’s a great excuse for a weekend in Amsterdam…what’s not to love about that?
