The 50th Wedding Anniversary party celebrates all of this. 50th Wedding Anniversary favors should carry that spirit of celebration and reverence home with the guests.
When considering 50th wedding anniversary favors, one should think about the couple, the flavor of their marriage, and the type of celebration they are having. If the couples share a special hobby, it might be nice to incorporate that personal element into the favors. For example, a couple that loves music might want to share a collection of music with their friends and families. A specialized CD, complete with music from the decade in which the couple was married, would make a charming gift for fellow celebrators. You could even produce a photo slideshow to accompany the music on the disk, for a meaningful tribute to the couple.
The 50th wedding anniversary is the golden anniversary, and traditionally gifts will carry this theme, if not literally, than in spirit. From specialty chocolates wrapped in shining gold foil and personalized with the couples names and wedding date, to miniature gold tone picture frames, there are endless trinkets to choose from. Other possibilities include:
- Golden key chains
- Small gold-toned photo albums
- Gold pen and pencil sets
- Bubbles in gold containers
- Gold colored bath accessories
- Miniature perfume and cologne in gold bottles
- Gold candles tied with miniature golden 50 charms
- Tiny gold vases filled with seasonal flowers
- Gold beaded jewelry
The violet is another traditional symbol that can be incorporated into your favors. For instance, distribute tiny wreathes woven with the flowers. Or fill a small vase filled with either fresh or dried violets to adorn each place setting and then be taken home by guests. You may also choose among bath and beauty accessories scented with violet.
If the celebratory couple has a charity that they are passionate about, a donation can be made in the couple's name in lieu of party favors. This is a truly personal and meaningful way to show respect and appreciation for the couple and a worthy cause.
Custom imprinted glassware is an elegant way to thank guests for sharing a momentous occasion. Between goblets, flutes, snifters, and mugs and the many sizes, colors and shapes to choose from, you are sure to find the right style and presentation for the special couple and their guests. Glassware is a lovely gift to receive and one that is sure to be enjoyed for many years to come.
One fun idea for favors is the personalized magazine covers. Easily ordered through specialty companies, you can feature a favorite picture of the honored couple and choose the headlines, excerpted quotes, and insets that represent them and their marriage. Friends and family will delight in this tribute to the couple and enjoy this modern portrait of a shared life.
Fiftieth wedding anniversary favors will be cherished as symbols of the power of unity and the beauty of a promise fulfilled.
