A second wedding anniversary … Durable. Versatile. Elegant and Beautiful.

Leave a comment

It feels like just the other day my head was swimming with wedding ideas and themes.  Just the other day I would go about happily chanting “Lettice is getting married”.

And now, here we are 2 years later…


You are still my most favourite  person in the whole wide world.  You are still the person I want to grow old with.  Even though some days I feel like hitting you over the head with something really hard and solid, I wouldn’t trade you for anything or anyone.

When I searched around the web for 2nd wedding anniversary ideas, I found the below meanings to the traditional and modern gift ideas.  I think they are pretty special:

2nd Anniversary Traditional Gift :

Cotton. As a material, cotton is both durable and versatile. These are both important qualities in a successful marriage. Cotton has also been known as a symbol of great prosperity.

2nd Anniversary Contemporary/Modern Gift:

China. Many people describe love as being elegant and beautiful. In the same way many people view love, china is seen as elegant and beautiful, too.

May we in this coming year equip our marriage to be more durable and more versatile.  And may we reap the rewards of our efforts.

May our life together be elegant and beautiful!
