Where does wedding anniversary celebration originate from?
The origins of wedding anniversaries go back as far as the Holy Roman Empire. Husbands used to crown wives with a silver wreath to celebrate their 25th anniversary, and they used a gold wreath on 50th anniversary. In the 20th century this old tradition was commercialised and led to addition of more anniversaries with a representative gift.
In the Commonwealth countries, couples could receive a message from the monarch for their 60th, 65th and 70th wedding anniversary, or any after that. To get one, you had to apply to Buckingham Palace in the UK to get one.
This tradition is now popular in other countries, including US where the president sends the congratulations letter.
