Yet traditional recognition of anniversaries by those who attended the original wedding can provide a focus not only for the couple, but for the loving energies and intent of all present. Anniversary gifts need not be expensive. Even a Golden Wedding can be marked by golden flowers of gifts wrapped in gold paper. Candles can be lit and the couple and those present burn candle wishes or promises for the future. Anniversaries of togetherness can also be celebrated by couples who have lived together for many years.
Key anniversaries include:
Fourth: Fruit and flowers
Seventy-fifth: Diamond or More Recently Platinum
