Inspiration for Planning Your Ruby Anniversary Celebration
You've reached two decades together with your beloved partner, congratulations on this wonderful journey you have experienced together! We want to help you celebrate your 40th wedding anniversary in the best way you can, so here are some excellent ideas on how to create the perfect day for you and your partner.
For this particular wedding anniversary, the traditional symbol of love is the ruby. Supposedly thought to contain an eternal flame, this gemstone represents the crucial elements for spending such an incredible amount of time together: love, adoration, passion and trust. Despite spending two decades with your husband or wife, your matrimonial union is still ablaze with love and the ruby presents this perfectly.
To no suprise, the popular gift for your fourtieth wedding anniversary is exchanging ruby jewellery - as it provides your partner with a constant reminder of your years spent together. A particularly romantic idea is investing in matching eternity rings, encrusted with beautiful rubies, to commemorate your anniversary together and to wear for the rest of your marriage! Conversely, if you're limited by your budget you can still create something meaningful by making a musical playlist, filled with your favourite songs from the year you exchanged vows. Here, you can show your partner the thought and preparation you've instilled into creating a keepsake that commemorates your wedding day, all those years ago! Or how about a photo album, with lots of photographs from across the years, in a beautiful ruby-themed album?
Another difficult decision to be made when celebrating such an important anniversary can be deciding how to commemorate your special day. The ruby-theme of fourty years together allows for you to create a beautifully colour coordinated celebratory party or private dinner. You can incorporate beautiful flower arrangements in different shades of red, with dining decorations and cakes in velvet red and ruby! Don't forget, there are two traditional flowers for your fourtieth anniversary; the Gladioli and the Nasturtium. Both very bright and colourful flowers, a beautiful bouquet for your partner will create a stunning centrepiece for your table.
