Wedding anniversary traditions

Traditional gifts to celebrate each wedding anniversary were only officially listed in the 1930s. Before this, the list of materials was short, to mark the first anniversary (paper) and the milestone anniversaries which are considered to be at years 5 (wood), 10 (tin), 20 (china), 25 (silver), 50 (gold) and 70 (platinum). This list was first published in 1922 and the materials go from weak to strong to symbolise the strengthening of the relationship. Over the years more materials have been added and the list updated and modernised. There are now two lists for traditional and for modern gifts, with the UK list being a little different to the one used in the USA.
