There are some anniversaries that are just as important as your wedding day. In Italy, we especially celebrate the 25th, 50th and 60th wedding anniversary. The 25th wedding anniversary is called “nozze d’argento“, or silver wedding anniversary. The 50th wedding anniversary is called “nozze d’oro“, or golden wedding anniversary. The 60th wedding anniversary is called “nozze di diamante“, or diamond wedding anniversary. They are certainly very special occasions which well deserve some serious celebration!
On all these occasions, couples usually renew their vows, either with a religious or symbolic ceremony, and then they celebrate with friends and family with a nice reception.
Over the last few years, we have also seen an increase in the number of couples who celebrate their 5th and 10th anniversary, especially couples who got married in Italy with a destination wedding, and come back with their friends and family to renew their vows and experience once again that special atmosphere of their wedding in Tuscany. And for us it’s always a great pleasure to help them with that!
We had the pleasure of working on a 25th wedding anniversary this summer. These events always have “silver” as a theme. This one was a small and informal one, where only the flower design for the church and the bride were necessary. Here is the beautiful bouquet that Lorella designed for the occasion!
If you are planning your 25th wedding anniversary party, a vintage decor might be perfect. Best if it incorporates something that reminds you of your actual wedding day! Here are some ideas!
First of all, you need beautiful silver wedding anniversary invites. You could choose something elaborate and elegant like n.1 (Carciofi Design), something more simple and classic like n.2, or a more innovative vintage design like n.3 (from Oh So Beautiful Paper), maybe choosing a silver envelope instead.
For the ceremony you can choose whether to go with a classy and always elegant white and silver, or with a more daring combination of silver and a theme color, maybe the color you chose for your wedding 25 years before.
The same goes for the reception. Depending on what you chose for the ceremony, you can go with white and silver reception decor or with touches of colour.
To make the event even more special, you can add details with a lot of personality: a vintage photo corner; engraved cutlery; a corner with the most meaningful photos of your 25 years together, of your wedding day, or of all the friends and family members who are no longer with you; an old typewriter for your guests to leave a note for your guest book; polaroid photos to use as guestbook cards; a vintage car; the old suitcase you took with you on your honeymoon with plenty of vintage postcards of your honeymoon destination for your guests to use as guestbook cards!
And if you plan on celebrating your 25th wedding anniversary in Italy, you cannot forget traditional silver confetti for your favours!
