Here at Katie Peckett florists in Sheffield, we’ve got plenty of ideas to mark the day with flowers!
You’ll be familiar with the concept of diamond as the symbol for 60 years of marriage, gold for 50, silver for 25, and so on. But did you know that anniversaries can also be celebrated with flowers? Of course, wedding anniversaries are often celebrated by giving flowers, but in actual fact, there are certain flowers that correspond to each anniversary too.
Celebrate with Carnations
First wedding anniversaries are typically associated with carnations. Evoking feelings of youth, passion, and joy, carnations are the perfect flowers to include in your floral bouquets and arrangements for the first anniversary of a marriage. Carnations are a much-loved flower for many occasions, and its wide beautiful array of colours makes it a great addition to flower arrangements. For the recipient, it’s subtle fragrance and attractive petal formation make it a lovely choice for wedding anniversaries.
Choose Irises for a Silver Wedding Anniversary
The stunning, unusual iris is the floral symbol for what would traditionally be your silver wedding anniversary, celebrating 25 years of marriage. The iris is such a bold choice in bouquets, and for anniversaries, many believe that this flower represents the strength and commitment of a relationship. Perfect for such a milestone!
Complimentary Colours for Gold
If you’re blessed enough to make it to your 50th wedding anniversary, soft yellow roses and striking violets make a real impact. The use of complimentary colours in this way is a bold nod to the long life of the couple celebrating this milestone anniversary.

Another lovely option for anniversary flowers, and one that we often recommend as Sheffield florists, is choosing flowers that you had at your wedding. Flowers picked out for the big day are sure to be a hit if replicated in an anniversary bouquet, bringing back lovely memories and adding an extra special, thoughtful touch.
