About 40th Wedding Anniversaries
What is the 40th wedding anniversary name & symbol?
Many congratulations on your 40th wedding anniversary, known as the ruby anniversary. The ruby symbolizes love and passion, much needed qualities for a couple who have spent 40 years together. It is one of the most coveted gemstones of all and within the heart of this gemstone is thought to lie a flame of fire that grows brighter with each passing year, just as the flame of a forty year marriage.
How to celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary
The 40th wedding anniversary or ruby anniversary is an extra special one, good reason to celebrate.
The flowers representative of the 40th anniversary are the nasturtium, symbolising patriotism, conquest, victory and impetuous love, all great attributes that a couple need to reach this milestone anniversary.
The other flower is the gladioli, symbol of strength of character and attracting love. Both these flowers bloom in a multitude of colours, and whether you are the special couple celebrating your 40th or you have been invited to a 40th wedding anniversary party a bouquet of 40 ruby red gladioli will make a stunning and thoughtful gift.
What is 40th wedding anniversary gift for Him, Her & Parents?
If you’re considering a party for your celebration, then why not have table decorations made up of both gladioli and nasturtium, and them the music to songs that were popular from the year that you exchanged your vows?
If you’ve never taken a second honeymoon before, the 40th anniversary is a great time to consider one. If you have already, well maybe it’s time for a third honeymoon! If you both enjoy golf why not visit the Bahamas and play a round on the Ruby Golf Course, or simply visit a place you both have treasured memories of.
