A Guide to Wedding Anniversary Flowers for Different Milestone Years

Are you celebrating your wedding anniversary soon? There’s no better way to surprise your partner and commemorate your special day with a meaningful gift. The most traditional and universal gift to celebrate special occasions, a bouquet of flowers is one of the best options you can choose for your partner. But did you know that different types of flowers symbolise a specific milestone year in a marriage? Take a look at our short guide and make sure you choose the right flowers for your partner this year!

1st Anniversary: Carnations

With a youthful appearance imbued with vibrant colours, carnations make the perfect choice to capture the passion and excitement that you experience in your first year of marriage. In addition, carnations convey love, protection and devotion, which are the ideal messages that should remind you and your partner of your commitment toward each other.

5th Anniversary: Daisies

Although daisies are typically associated with the ‘He loves me, He loves me not’ game, rest assured that it’s not the case when you give your partner a bouquet of daisies. Daisies actually represent long-lasting love and fidelity, two important values that you should uphold in your marriage.

10th Anniversary: Daffodils

A decade of marriage is an important milestone that deserves a special celebration. A lot can happen in 10 years, but you’ve made it all the way here despite all the challenges that you and your partner may have faced. A representation of joy and happiness, daffodils are the perfect flowers to celebrate the resilience of your relationship. In addition, the bright colour of daffodils should brighten your partner’s face when you present them with a special bouquet from us.

20th Anniversary: Asters

Asters stand for love and wisdom, two things that ideally should help you navigate through any relationship in life. There’s probably so much that you’ve learned about each other over the last 20 years. So surprise your partner with a beautiful arrangement of asters to celebrate the years you’ve surpassed and the awaiting adventures to be discovered in the coming years.

50th Anniversary: Roses & Violets

Yellow roses and violets are typically the favourite flower selections to celebrate the remarkable golden anniversary. Roses represent friendship and prosperity, while violets represent commitment - when combined, they perfectly capture the essence of a successful marriage.

60th Anniversary: Create your own bouquet!

There are no specified flowers to commemorate the 60th wedding anniversary, so this significant milestone is an opportunity to create a personalised bouquet that is meaningful to you and your partner. You can mix and match the flowers mentioned above or choose a set of flowers that suit your partner’s taste and personality.
