Anniversary celebrations began in medieval times when people celebrated 25 and 50 years of marriage. A husband would crown his wife with a wreath of silver for 25 years and of gold for 50.

The tradition of gold and silver wedding anniversaries has stuck, but there is now a long list of other named anniversaries to accompany them. Each represents a different facet of the couple's commitment, the stage their relationship is at and the number of years they have been together.

Your 15th wedding anniversary is sometimes considered to be one of the first "big" ones. You two could take the time to renew your vows to each other. You can make the service as formal or informal as you like, have a civil or religious ceremony, or fly to an exotic location to do "I do" all over again.

Silver weddings have a long tradition. In medieval Germany, husbands gave their wives a wreath of silver when they had been married for 25 years. 'Sylver brydells' are mentioned in an English church record of 1624, and the term 'silver feast' is attributed to the Germans in a letter to Dr Samuel Johnson in 1806.
Couples may want to buy something to special to commemorate this first major milestone in their relationship. Choose a theme of silver items to celebrate your 25 years together - this could be a lovely silver frame for one of your wedding photographs, or even a piece of jewelry for each of you.

For your 30th anniversary the representative stone is Pearl. In Indian mythology, pearls are said to be dewdrops from heaven that fell into the sea. These jewels represent peace, nobility and beauty, and would make a wonderful gift - but if you can't stretch to pearls, use their color as an inspiration for a beautiful white gift, or just get romantic over a dozen oysters. Make your 30th anniversary night an evening of Champagne, caviar and music!

The 40th wedding anniversary is considered to be one of the most important after the 25th. Not surprisingly it's been attached to one of the world's most precious gems. Rubies are said to be rarer than diamonds - they symbolize health, wealth and wisdom and, of course, passion. Color your 40th wedding anniversary party location with different tones of red, blush, and burgundy. Or buy some vintage bottles and invite your party guests to toast the future and the past in vintage ruby port or red wine.

You've spent half a century together - what better cause for a celebration? Golden weddings have been marked for many years. In medieval Germany, men would present their wives with a golden wreath on their 50th anniversary. This was said to symbolize harmony. For your Golden Wedding Anniversary throw  party. Relive your wedding day. Make it complete with a dress, the cake and music! Going for gold is the obvious choice for a 50th wedding gift and you may want to use the opportunity to buy each other new wedding rings to add to your old ones. You could even have special inscriptions made inside the rings to mark the occasion.

After 70 years together, you've earned your own platinum record. And like the metal, your marriage is strong, precious and rare. Eternity rings are a popular anniversary present. Of course, you can buy one whenever you feel like it, but it might be an ideal gift to mark a special anniversary like the 70th.

The Diamond represents the 75th wedding anniversary. Diamond anniversary parties will probably include generations of family and friends and should be an event to remember. Make sure someone is on hand with the video camera to get it all on tape.
