About 73rd Wedding Anniversaries
If you know a couple who are celebrating their 73rd wedding anniversary, you are privileged indeed. They are two very special people who will have witnessed a multitude of amazing events throughout their married life – and be happy to share them with family and friends.
This latest wedding celebration will certainly rank among those momentous occasions, so warm congratulations are richly deserved.
Gift Ideas for the Couple
There are no specific gemstones or flowers associated with the 73rd anniversary, but with a little imagination you can come up with just the right gift idea. For example, why not tap into the couples’ interests and experiences?
Their wedding might have been during the era of big bands and the jitterbug, so you could theme a party featuring music and fashion styles from that time.
You could also re-create their wedding cake, whether it was an elaborately decorated creation or – as the times dictated – a rich fruit cake hidden under fake icing. Either option would be sure to bring wide smiles to their faces.
Alternatively, track down a newspaper from the date of the wedding, or compile your own with stories from their married life and featuring a headline announcing their marriage, accompanied by a full-page picture of the happy couple.
A family heirloom quilt containing picture memories from their lifetime might require a bit more effort to put together, but the undoubted pleasure it gives them will be well worth the time and loving care involved.
Another unusual gift certain to prove a talking point for years to come would be a framed coin set from the year the couple exchanged their vows.
While the choice of gift is important, simply celebrating a 73rd wedding anniversary with family and friends is always the ultimate joy and memory.
