Who gets involved in a Wedding Anniversary

Wedding Anniversary Etiquette – Who; Frequently Asked Questions

Back to Anniversary Etiquette

Q. My Parents/ Friends Anniversary is coming up should I help them celebrate it?

A. This is a matter of judgement, if you think they would appreciate the thought then by all means celebrate the anniversary in a suitable fashion. The early Wedding Anniversaries are traditionally celebrated by the couples only although a card from friends and relatives is often a nice thought. From the 15th Anniversary onward, historically, they would also start to be celebrated within the family. This I would suggest has developed with the siblings of a couple becoming aware as they got older of their parents marriage and the important
role this took within the family.

Q. It’s a major anniversary for my parents what can I do that’s special ?

A. If they are celebrating their 60th or greater then you can arrange a greeting from the Queen if you are an Commonwealth citizen who recognises the Queen as your sovereign. Greetings can be sent for the 60th Wedding Anniversary and every subsequent year. Your request must be received at Kensington Palace six (6) weeks in advance of the event date. Follow the link to find the full instructions. Official Greetings

Q Does the couple the party is being given for give speeches?

A. With speeches it is down to the type of celebration the couple are holding, if they are having a repeat wedding breakfast then a formal speech would be expected. If they were having an informal party then an informal speech would be appropriate. Typically a speech of some type would be expected.

Q. As far as a speech is concerned, I guess we will just play that by ear and use common sense if and when the time comes that a speech is to be made…and should it be made by both partners or by just one???  I don’t know if
this is going to be “fun” or not.

A. One thing to remember is it is you & your Husband’s Anniversary and hence however you choose to approach the celebration will have to be accepted by your guests. Typically, and especially after 50 years!, one of you could speak for both of you however it is acceptable for both to give a speech if you would like to. A point to note also is that as you have not planned the celebration I would expect your speech to be a “Thank you for organizing this party….etc” rather than anything further. I sense that you are worrying about this party and I am sure this is not what you children want; perhaps you could have a word with them now and tell them you are worrying they should be able to reduce your fears. Above all this is a celebration thrown on you & your Husband’s behalf and hence it should be enjoyable for yourselves. I hope you have a wonderful time and the celebration is appropriate.

Q We are about to attend a 50th wedding anniversary. We are distant relatives. We realize the 50th is gold. We are wondering about a gift. Do we need to take one? Does it have to be gold?

A. Firstly, an invitation does not imply a gift should be given, it is not expected, does the invitation give any clue, sometimes they say no gifts or similar, if not then within your family circle when similar events go on are gifts given?, is the event formal or informal? These may help answer your question on whether they would be expected. As it is the 50th and as you stated it is the Golden Anniversary this does not mean the gift has to be Gold it is
merely the symbol associated with the anniversary. Other gifts are available such as celebration glasses, personalized gifts etc. that indicate the anniversary and are not gold. Mementoes of the actually wedding are sometimes good or even a photographic history of their life since the marriage. My personal favorite especially for the major anniversaries is a bottle of fine wine or champagne bottled in the year they got married.

Q. According to protocol, should the children throw their parents a party for their 50th anniversary?

A. Typically the earlier years are organized by the couple themselves, as their children grow up then they may choose to organize a celebration for their parents.  It is not expected that siblings should organize a 50th wedding anniversary and can be organized by the couple or their children. The decision on whether to have a celebration, and what type is very much a personal decision based upon the family culture that exists.

Q My parents have a 50th wedding anniversary coming up.  There are 4 children in the family who might be involved in the planning.  Oldest, 2nd Oldest, Third Oldest, Youngest.  Who of the siblings is normally considered the “point person” for the organization?

A. Typically it would go to the person best suited to take the role on. This may depend on who could devote the time needed to organize the celebration.

Q. Would you normally expect that it is the children of the anniversary couple who would initiate a family celebration to honour their parents 40th anniversary?

A. A lot of children do instigate an anniversary celebration however it is not expected that they should do so.  As it is the couple’s celebration they have the choice whether to celebrate or not and can organize their event or allow their siblings to take the lead.

33rd Year Wedding Anniversary

33rd year wedding anniversary modern symbol is amethystIt’s your 33rd year wedding anniversary and you’re looking for something amazing to buy your husband or wife to show your appreciation over the years that you’ve spent together. Even though you know each other so well, everyone needs a little inspiration and that’s what we have created for you. If you follow the links on the page you will see some fantastic gifts for your 33rd wedding anniversary.

Normally, wedding anniversaries have certain symbols or items that are connected to them or a theme to buy the 33rd wedding anniversary gift, but the 33rd doesn’t. Usually there are traditional items, flowers and gemstones but only the 33rd wedding anniversary has a modern-day equivalent for gifts and they are based on the gem amethyst.

The stunning gem is used in an array of jewellery and back in Roman times they used to drink wine from vessels made from amethyst to try and stop them becoming inebriated, but whatever you buy that has an amethyst gem in it, be it a bracelet, earrings or necklaces or even a ring, you can be assured that the beautiful purple/blue colour will make her eyes light up.

That’s the beauty about buying a wedding anniversary gift that is some sort of jewellery, as it doesn’t just last forever but it can be worn with a myriad of different outfits and look perfect with each one. Unlike some gifts that might wear out or be kept for extra special occasions, you can make the most of amethyst as it’s so versatile.

Even though there are no flowers or gemstones, the amethyst is classed as a modern day themed gift, associated with the 33rd wedding anniversary, you can still go ahead and buy some gifts that aren’t traditionally connected to the date. As you know your wife or husband so well, you will know exactly what to get but let us help you with your gift buying process as we have a selection of fantastic products and items to give you a helping hand.

If you’re buying a 33rd year wedding anniversary gift for your husband and you don’t think he would like amethyst then take a look around and buy something memorable that he’ll treasure for a very long time. You could buy him a watch or a piece of artwork, or simply buy him a few items that you know he’d like. Unlike birthdays and festive times, the wedding anniversary gift is all about your spouse and that’s where you might need a little help to be inspired but at the end of the day you’ll know exactly what to buy – but we have some fantastic gifts on our site that we know will really help sway your decision for your 33rd wedding anniversary gift purcashes.
