About 51st Wedding Anniversaries

In Ancient Greek, marble means “shining stone,” usually used by the classic Roman and Greek architects and sculptors. As marble represents immortality and purity, it is perfectly suitable for a timeless love lasting 51 years.

51st Anniversary Gifts Traditions

If the celebration of a half-century marriage customarily features gold and golden items, there is no traditional theme for the 51st wedding anniversary. 

Later, people have devised a contemporary list that links a theme or material to every wedding anniversary. And it is blue sapphire that was chosen. 

Blue sapphire – the wisdom stone – has various significant meanings when given as a 51st-anniversary gift. In the past, people wore blue sapphire to protect themselves from harm and bestow fortune. 

Also known as the stone of commitment and love, blue sapphire is an ideal gift to express the long-lasting marriage of couples.

For Grandparents

Personalized Photo Albums

Many couples usually focus on the celebration party and forget to take a photo of their 51st anniversary. If your grandparents are in the case, you can compensate for them this year. 

Take them to a studio and get a photo of the two. And don’t forget to give copies to your family members.

To make it more memorable, you can invest in a digital camera and take a photo of your grandparents by yourself. Take as many photos as you like, then print them out, frame them, or make them into a personalized photo album of them only.

Anniversary Party

If your grandparents never plan a party, it is your turn to make their 51st anniversary more memorable than ever before. You can book a local venue at their favorite place and even become the host of the party.

How To Celebrate 51st Wedding Anniversary

Party is always the first option when coming to any special anniversary celebration. If you already had a grand feast last year, why don’t you keep this year’s anniversary simple and low-key, like a small gathering of family members and friends?

It can be a home-cooked dinner under the candlelight, a live music session of their favorite artists, or a personalized photo album that makes couples exclaim every time they flip over the pages.
