1. What are the symbols of the five-year wedding anniversary?
Each year of marriage has its own set of symbols to help you choose the right gift. If you’ve been together for five years, don’t let this special milestone slip. Here are those associated with the fifth wedding anniversary:
- Traditional Gift: Wood symbolizes the strength of your marriage bond. It also indicates a solidified relationship as trees start from a slender form and become harder to survive through the rigors of time.
- Contemporary Gift: The modern gift is considered to be silverware, as a mark of purity and strength. It brings to mind the connection of loved ones sharing a meal with each other and with their families as well.
- Gemstone: Sapphire or pink tourmaline are the gems associated with this anniversary. Besides their striking beauty, they symbolize wisdom, faithfulness, and sincerity towards one another.
- Color: The 5 year anniversary is commemorated with blue, pink, or turquoise.
- Flower: Daisies are the representative of the fifth-anniversary floral gift. Each of the daisy’s petals radiates outwards from the center. The middle represents the intense bond at the core of the couple’s relationship. This symbolizes the ways the couple will expand and grow together.
