About 87th Wedding Anniversaries
How incredible that a couple should celebrate their 87th wedding anniversary, and they certainly have a love that has withstood the test of time. Musically it was the beginning of Jazz, Blues, Broadway and the big bands, men wore tailored suits, pinched in at the waist and women wore dresses with low or no backs to them, it was all about style and elegance.
A couple who have been married for 87 years, has more than likely been everywhere they wanted and have accumulated all the jewellery they desire. Treat them a trip down memory lane, find out where and how they met, and transport them back there with a party themed around the fashion and music of their era, but consult them first before planning anything, they may not feel up to a big party.
Get the family together, for a quiet afternoon tea, if that is their preferred choice and arrange for the grandchildren or even great grandchildren to perform a play, making for some wonderful family entertainment. Maybe even arrange for a family photograph, acting as a permanent reminder of their 87th wedding anniversary.
Flowers have their own language and colours are also believed to hold meanings. Lavender coloured flowers, representing grace and elegance, styles reminiscent of the era of their wedding, would demonstrate your sentiments perfectly about a couple celebrating 87 years of marriage.
You could create their very own life story, starting from the moment they met and include chapters from each decade of their lives together mixed in with family photographs and different world events, have it bound in leather and watch the look on their faces as they turn the pages of this wonderfully thought provoking gift.
Whatever your decision, be sure to commemorate such a wonderful event as an 87th wedding anniversary and inform Buckingham Palace to ensure the loving couple receive their card from the Queen.
