Giving Anniversary Flowers: Anniversary Flowers Year By Year

calla lily - 6 year anniversary

Giving "just the right" anniversary flowers can be a challenge -- in fact, I've written a complete article about it here!

Of course, you can always take the easy way out.

How?

Well, there are specific flowers that coincide with the various years of marriage. So if you want an easy way to buy anniversary flowers, simply buy the flower that coincides with that same number of years of marriage.

For example, if your parents have been married for 25 years, you could buy them a bouquet of Irises.

If it's your grandparents who are celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary Violets are the most appropriate.

Of course, if it's your own wedding anniversary you are celebrating, giving flowers on their own aren't going to cut it (that's my little bit of advice... as a woman!).

With that said, here is the full list of anniversary flowers, each presented with its coinciding number of years (some of these are available in "plant" form, should that be more convenient).
