About 88th Wedding Anniversaries
How fantastic and many congratulations on knowing a couple about to celebrate their 88th wedding anniversary. You already know how truly special they are. When they married the world was a much simpler place, material objects were not as important as being together and more often than not they begun married life sharing their parents’ home.
The number 88 is the number of keys on a piano, made up of 36 black keys and 52 white keys, if your couple feel up to it, why not take them to a piano bar, where they can be joined by all the family and exchange some fascinating facts about the number 88. For example, 88 is often used in Morse code and amateur radio enthusiasts to say hugs and kisses because it resembles two lips kissing. Bingo callers describe the number 88 as “two fat ladies”! This could make for some fun and memorable family entertainment.
Your special anniversary couple may wish some quiet time together to celebrate so bear this in mind and be sure to consult them if you are planning a big event, it is their anniversary after all. If that is the case then treat them to some champagne and luxurious handmade chocolates for them to enjoy whilst reminiscing together.
Inform Buckingham Palace of this upcoming event and your wonderful couple will receive a card from the Queen, recognition of such a magnificent achievement. Show them they are your very own Royalty and give them a bouquet of purple roses.
However you decide to celebrate and whatever gift you choose, be sure that the couple feel thoroughly spoilt and most importantly enjoy their 88th wedding anniversary.
