About 89th Wedding Anniversaries
Thoughts will now be focused partly on next year, but in the meantime there is another incredible milestone to celebrate. Can you believe that this amazing couple are celebrating their 89th wedding anniversary?
Well they are, and – even though this feat is extremely rare – people are living longer and there’s a good chance that more couples will be joining this exclusive club in the future.
The story of how the couple met each other, and their secret to such a long-lasting marriage, is big news, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the celebrations need to be on a grand scale. After all, they are over 100 years young now!
Gift Ideas for the Couple
There are no classic symbols for this anniversary, so you are free to establish your own personalised traditions, including gift ideas. Aim to create a party theme that features warm colours. Orange and yellow are both representative of happiness and sunshine, and they also look great together in a bouquet of flowers.
Of course, the couple will probably have their own ideas on how they want to celebrate their 89th anniversary and these should be respected. All the family will be keen to see them on this special day, but the couple might prefer some more relaxed time with each other. If that’s the case, organise a rota of visits over a few days. You could even make it an anniversary week, which would be less overwhelming than seeing everybody on the same day.
As the years and anniversaries pass, celebrations become more of a sharing experience – and there is nothing more poignant and memorable than gathering as many family members together as possible for an updated photo. Place an enlarged print on canvas or paper, then add an attractive gilded frame to create a gift that will be venerated for generations to come. Extra prints can also be ordered by family members.
After sharing this cherished 89th wedding anniversary day (or week) with the couple, you can then plan ahead for an even more epic moment in their lives: 90 years of married life.
