Celebrating a 50th anniversary is an achievement very few couples can boast. Even going back to medieval times the 50th anniversary was a major milestone. A husband would crown his wife with a wreath of gold on their 50th anniversary, which from then on became known as the Golden Anniversary. The traditional and modern 50th anniversary gift is gold which symbolizes optimism, wealth, beauty, and strength. Gemstones for 50th anniversaries are gold or gold topaz, and of course the colour of the Golden Anniversary is gold. Violet is the flower that is most closely associated with a 50th anniversary.

After 50 years of marriages memories are the most cherished possessions. Incorporate some touching 50th anniversary party ideas in the celebration – the original wedding meal can be recreated, their favourite music from their wedding can be played, and a replica of their original wedding cake can be created. The trend in 50th anniversary gifts is no gifts. Instead, make a donation to the couple’s favourite charity.
A wonderful gift for your parents’ 50th anniversary is to arrange to have special congratulatory messages sent to them from the Prime Minister and the Governor General. The Prime Minister will send a congratulatory letter on 50th anniversaries along with a special certificate. Please make your request at least two months in advance to your local MPP. The couple being feted must be residents of Ontario.
