About 62nd Wedding Anniversaries
This year, as you celebrate your 62nd wedding anniversary, the children will have grown up and you are now probably proud and loving grandparents as well.
Looking back as you share memories with these new generations, you will no doubt recall experiencing completely different ideas about dating – habits which couples today might consider somewhat sexist rather than chivalrous.
For example, waiting for the lady to be seated before you take your seat. Or the man being the one who orders the food at a restaurant – while the woman makes sure she never ever leaves a lipstick mark on the glass!
Times have clearly changed for couples celebrating 62 years of marriage, but one aspect remains the same: this latest annual milestone warrants an appropriate celebration that creates even more special memories.
How to Celebrate a 62nd Wedding Anniversary
There are no special flowers, gemstones or other symbolic items associated with the 62nd wedding anniversary, but that doesn’t mean you should avoid those always much-appreciated generic gift ideas.
Why not splash out on a wonderful bouquet of 62 mixed flowers, representing one for every year of your marriage?
Or, having recently celebrated your 60th anniversary and perhaps having purchased a beautiful diamond ring to celebrate the occasion, now you could add a matching diamond bracelet or pendant.
Another special way of marking this anniversary – if looking for a gift for your parents or grandparents – would be to buy them two tickets to the theatre, or book front-row seats for a concert by the couple’s favourite performer.
Alternatively, perhaps the novel idea of a framed coin collection from the year the couple first said “I do”. Or a framed collage of treasured photographs reminding the couple just how truly cherished they are.
The classic celebration of a romantic meal for two at a cosy local restaurant could be given a significant, but still intimate, tweak now as your family grows. Invite the whole family this year, to make it an especially memorable anniversary meal for everyone.
