About 8th Wedding Anniversaries
Celebrating your 8th wedding anniversary is an important commemoration of your wedding vows. Finding the right gift that shows your partner you love them is just as important too! As always enjoy the celebration.
What is the 8th Wedding Anniversary name and Symbol?
The traditional symbol is bronze, the modern equivalent is linen or lace.
The gifts for wedding anniversaries tend to increase in substance and value over time as marriage itself should grow and strengthen over time.
Bronze is stronger than both iron and copper, symbols of earlier years of marriage, because it is a blend of two metals (copper and tin). This mixture represents the union of two lives and the strength resulting from combining time with perseverance.
Bronze gifts can vary, maybe finding some special crafted jewellery made from recycled bronze, or a hammered bronze drink cooler.
How to celebrate 8th wedding anniversary
Instead of just buying a piece of lace or linen then a visit to Nottingham or France, both famous for their lace making for centuries, or maybe plan a trip to Egypt or Greece, makers of linen since the first millennium B.C. would make a memorable celebration.
