While your first year of marriage is full of memorable milestones, your second year is when you really start settling in together. Even if you have been together for years, marriage changes your relationship completely and it’s after the second year that you really become comfortable. Many couples even talk about starting a family at this stage while others prefer to wait a little bit longer. When you are looking for the perfect way to celebrate your second anniversary, here are some lovely gift ideas.
Flowers for your second anniversary
The flower associated with the second year of marriage is the lily of the valley. This flower signifies the purity of your relationship as well as devotion and modesty. What a perfect symbol of your love for your spouse! If you can get your hands on these blooms, they will make a wonderful and appropriate gift for this anniversary. If they are not available, not to worry, you still have many other options when it comes to anniversary flowers.
Second anniversary colour
The colour associated with this year of marriage is red. It is also associated with linen white. If you would like to send fresh flowers for your second year of marriage, you can send a bouquet of red roses, for example. You could even opt for a red and white bouquet. Red roses paired with gypsophila is a particularly popular choice to celebrate this milestone anniversary.
Second anniversary traditional and modern gift
When it comes to traditional and modern gifts, you can choose between cotton and china. When you choose something cotton, you can choose something red or white. Similarly, you could order some fine white china that you can use on special occasions. Make sure that you order extra place settings so that you can use them when entertaining guests too.
Every anniversary is worth celebrating. It’s important for keeping that fire burning in your relationship. It also gives couples the chance to enjoy some time alone and reconnect if they lead particularly busy lives. When celebrating your second anniversary, remember that fresh flowers are always the most thoughtful gift while china and something cotton (like linens) are practical.
