The 50th wedding anniversary is quite a milestone. A statement to strength, love and commitment.
While many people know that this is the "golden" anniversary, less well-known is that there are two flowers associated with it.
A symbol of modesty, virtue and faithfulness, violets are an appropriate flower for a long-lasting relationship.
Since violets are difficult to work into floral arrangements and many people are unaware of their association with the golden anniversary, yellow roses have become a popular option. Their colour is a natural tie-in with the symbolism and, along with their subtle scent, they have come to represent the beauty of a long, successful relationship.
