Every married couple’s life is marked by a wedding anniversary, which commemorates the love, trust, understanding, and togetherness that binds two people together for the rest of their lives. As a result, a couple’s bond is strengthened by commemorating this day every year. And, of course, a wedding anniversary celebration isn’t complete without presents. And one of the most important gifts you can give to your loved one is a beautiful bouquet of flowers. But before ordering the bouquet, here are few things which should be considered:-
Variation: The variation in flowers represents a different choice and giving a specific bouquet on every anniversary represents different meanings. You can also add your partner’s favourite blooms along with those flowers to make his/her feel more special.
Color: Each wedding year is also represented by a single color, so consider choosing a bunch of flowers in a traditional color.
Accent: Feel free to pair your beautiful bouquet with accents, such as unique glass vases or gifts. Since there are traditional materials and anniversary gifts for each milestone, this is a great opportunity to include them in your flower arrangements.
First Year :: Carnation
Your first year as a married couple is a very exciting time in both of your lives! Celebrate your young and new love with a festive bouquet. Carnations are the ultimate symbols of love, affection and mystery.
There are many meanings behind carnations, so it is important to choose the right color. Dark red carnations, for example, are given to express deep feelings of love and affection. You can also choose a light red carnation, a token of appreciation – both new colors are a great option to celebrate your new love. Because the traditional gift for your first year gift is paper, add a handwritten paper love note to your carnation bouquet for a sweet touch.
