What are the types of flowers that represent wedding anniversary?
If you have been married for a while, by now you’re probably aware of the various ways of celebrating different years of marriage. For example, the symbol for 25 years of marriage is silver while 50 years are celebrated with gold. Generally speaking, the symbols range anywhere from fragile paper to the strong and enduring diamond which represent the 1st year and the 60th year respectively. As the years go by, the anniversary gifts increase in strength.
There is a different anniversary flower that is used to commemorate the blooming marriage with each passing year. In this part, we’ll guide you on the type of flower and its color to help you plan decorations for your wedding anniversary parties.

The cosmos is a flower whose beauty is unique and intense.
By the time a couple is celebrating their second anniversary they now have a deeper understanding of what marriage entails. The gorgeous and luminous cosmos symbolizes this transformation.

By the fourth year, the couple becomes more comfortable in their role as husband and wife. The colorful geranium represents the coming together of two people in body, mind, and spirit.
The intense lines of color radiating outwards exemplify the ever-expanding love of the couple.
At a glance, the daisies look very simple but their structure and texture are incredibly unique and exciting. The center represents the intense bond of the couple created over the years while the petals represent the magical ways in which the couple will grow.
