How to Celebrate It
Basically, you have two options when it comes to this. You can opt for a small, private party, with just you, your spouse, and perhaps a few other members of the family present. However, a lot of people wish to celebrate this occasion with as much of friends and family members as they can, especially since during 50 years of marriage they have definitely made a lot of common friends, people who would wish to share their happiness with them. The thing to remember is the nickname of the 50th wedding anniversary, the Golden Anniversary. So, if you are making a party, make sure that everything is set up in the gold theme. Get some gold ribbon, gold candles, and some special ornaments made in gold color, like gold stars and the like. Also, if you choose to make a big party it will have the perk of having many people reminiscing on the couple and on their life together. You could ask one of your friends to prepare a small speech for this occasion. Another nice thing you can get for yourself for your 50th wedding anniversary is a greeting card form the White House. The white House actually sends out greeting cards to all couples who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, if they are notified of it. So, if you want to get greetings form the President that you can show to your guests, send a request to the White House. Just make sure you send it at least six weeks before the occasion, as it is required.
Gifts that are given out for this occasion are, yes, you guessed it, gold jewelry and similar things. It is probably one of the main reasons people named the 50th wedding anniversary the Gold Anniversary is because it was meant for the people who are celebrating it to buy, and give each other presents of gold. Gold signifies value, in this case the value of true love, the love that lasted 50 years. So, buy your partner something made of gold for your 50th wedding anniversary. Today, gold jewelry pieces can be found quite cheaply, so most people can afford to buy their partner one. However, if you still can`t afford something made of genuine gold, you can get your spouse a gold plated piece of jewelry, or a small memorabilia, as today you can find quite a lot of those on the market.
Whatever you do, and whatever you get for your partner, this will be a joyous occasion for you. 50th wedding anniversary is a symbol, a symbol that you have spent your life in love and happiness, and with a person which was the right for you. So, honor this occasion, and cherish it, cause it comes only once in a lifetime.
