Anniversary of 20 years: what a wedding, what a memorable gift

A porcelain wedding is celebrated by couples who have been married for 20 years. What kind of wedding, what to give to the anniversaries, what is the main symbol of the holiday - these questions are asked by the "newlyweds" and their guests. Porcelain tableware and accessories traditionally symbolize comfort and wealth. Families celebrating their 20th anniversary are considered successful, strong, and harmonious.

How to celebrate an anniversary, the main color of the holiday

The celebration of a porcelain wedding has its own traditions and rituals.

For example, before the arrival of the guests, the heroes of the day fill the porcelain vessel with many different coins. Each incoming guest takes a coin from this vessel. With such generosity, the owners of the house “multiply” their well-being.

Breaking old porcelain is considered a traditional rite. Anniversaries take two porcelain cups, in the presence of all the guests they drink tea or water from them and break them “for good luck”. One of the guests gives two new porcelain cups in exchange for the old ones. So at the same time, couples get rid of the negative of the past and acquire a “new happiness”.

It is recommended to celebrate a porcelain wedding in a close family circle. The choice of place is up to the heroes of the occasion - it can be a family home dinner, a banquet in a cozy cafe or a picnic in nature. The main thing is to decorate the holiday according to the style of the event. The table should be set with chinaware, preferably new.

The predominant color of the anniversary is white, other colors can be used as accents. White color should be present in the table setting, in the decoration of the room, in the clothes of the anniversaries and guests. If the guests were not warned about the dress code in advance, the hosts of the event can take care of it themselves - prepare a small white accessory for everyone.

Gifts for the soul

If friends are passionate people and have some kind of hobby, this fact should not be ignored. On the contrary, gifts for your favorite pastime will greatly delight the anniversaries.

There is only one advice here - you need to proceed from what the couple is fond of. If both are engaged in gardening, you need to give everything for giving:

  • exotic tree seedlings;
  • swing or gazebo for moments of relaxation;
  • everything for the barbecue area;
  • modern greenhouse.

If the couple is fond of collecting, find rare items for the collection or a modern collection album.

If a couple does not have a common hobby, and each family member is fond of something of his own, you need to choose a gift specifically, for each hero of the day. But you can arrange such gifts in a single style.

When gathering for a wedding anniversary as a guest, it is important to know that 20 years of marriage is a porcelain wedding. What to give for the holiday is up to you. You can turn to traditions and present a gift from the material that the anniversary is named. And you can move away from traditionally accepted souvenirs and give unforgettable emotions or something you need in everyday life. The main thing is to choose and give a gift from the heart.
