About 60th Wedding Anniversaries
What is the 60th wedding anniversary name and symbol?
Many congratulations on your 60th wedding anniversary otherwise known as the diamond anniversary. Diamond means unconquerable and enduring, symbolic of a couple celebrating 60 years together. It is said that the fire in the diamond symbolizes the constant flame of love.
In Commonwealth countries, couples celebrating their Diamond wedding anniversary can receive a telegram from the Monarch so be sure to mark this momentous occasion.
How to celebrate 60th wedding anniversary
The tradition of celebrating a 60th anniversary came into being after Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee years of reign.
With 60 years of marriage behind you there is little that you have not seen and this is a great time to sit back and reflect on the time you have spent together, the things you have accomplished and the happiness you have shared.
60th wedding anniversary gift ideas for him, her, parents and grandparents
When considering gifts for the 60th anniversary, think carefully before you make your purchase as couples reaching this milestone anniversary will already have everything they need and want over many years of gathering.
A dinner at a special restaurant, tickets to a show and make them the best seats in the house, maybe a night at the opera or a short break at a boutique hotel, will probably be more appreciated.
The flower associated with the 60th wedding anniversary is the iris meaning faith, hope, wisdom and purification. This stunningly elegant flower will make a beautiful bouquet no matter what colour you choose and your partner is sure to understand the sentiment.
