Wedding Anniversaries and the Celebs!

So, your anniversary is coming up, you want to do something nice, maybe throw a small party, go out for a romantic meal and if you’re feeling really recession-proof, perhaps go on a long romantic weekend away. Either way the chances are you’re not doing what you’re favourite celebrity couple are doing. So let’s tell you what they get up too when that time of year rolls around.

Renewing vows

Many celebrities decide to renew their wedding vows perhaps more regularly that the normal human being would. In fact, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon married 3 years and Heidi Klum and Seal married 6 years renewed their vows in 2011.

Renewing vows is a great idea to show continued commitment to one another on your anniversary, perhaps with friends and family gathering in a big gazebo at the end of your garden. However, Heidi Klum and Seal did it slightly differently, they used Donald Trump’s Palm Beach Florida estate, the theme was a masked ball and they waited until sunset to renew their vows. So far, they’ve renewed their vows every year since their wedding! We wait to see where they will renew them next year.

Expensive Gifts

Dependant on the balance on your bank account, you may choose to buy your other half an expensive gift for your anniversary, you know, perhaps some silver or gold jewellery for her or that new TV he’s been hinting at. But we don’t expect you to go all out like these celebrities. Nick Cannon, on his second wedding anniversary to Mariah Carey thoughtfully gave her a diamond encrusted pop ring complete with her name and wedding date on the top.

It’s not all Money

Victoria and David Beckham celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary with a simple trip to the beach. Well, if simple means having a constant army of paparazzi behind you. They decided to have a quiet day on a beach in Los Angeles with their kids.

Singer Beyonce Knowles and rapper Jay-Z celebrated their first wedding anniversary by being as low-key as possible. They dressed is casual clothing and visited New York’s Pastis Restaurant. You’re probably thinking that this restaurant must be upper-class and very expensive, well no actually, It’s a standard American family restaurant.

How not to celebrate¦.

18th Year Wedding Anniversary

18th year anniversary traditional theme imageThe 18th year wedding anniversary does not have a traditional wedding anniversary material, symbol or flower associated with the celebration, as you can see below the other published lists do have symbols to use or if you have been using the traditional list then effectively you have a free choice for a gift.

18th year wedding anniversary modern theme - porcelain imageThe Contemporary or Modern anniversary list states the gift theme for the 18-year anniversary is Porcelain. If you are wondering, what porcelain is it is the term used to refer to high quality ceramics typically originating from the China region. Kaolin is used in the manufacture, and it is usually delicate however, it is also relatively tough. With good quality Porcelain, you should be able to see the shadow of your fingers if you hold it up to the light with your fingers behind it.

18th year anniversary flowers imageThe 18th Wedding Anniversary has not had any flowers traditionally associated with the celebration; by now you should know their favourite flower so you could always get some of these, although to celebrate 18 years of marriage maybe they deserve something more!

18th year wedding anniversary gemstone theme opal image The Gemstone Anniversary List shows Opal as the gemstone associated with the 18thWedding Anniversary.

Lots of folklore and traditions surround gemstones, many believe opal to be an unlucky stone that can only be tamed by setting in silver, in Turkey it was believed, in ancient times, to have come direct from heaven in a flash of lightning. Opal is classed as a moon stone and the luckiest day to wear it is on a Monday.Should the gemstone for this year not be a popular choice there is also the appropriate gemstone for the month you married, we’ve even got references to the appropriate gemstone for the time you got married.
