A wedding Anniversary is the anniversary of a marriage that has taken place. Historically you can trace wedding anniversaries back to the Holy Roman Empire, back then husbands would crown their wives with a silver wreath for their twenty-fifth anniversary and gold for the fiftieth anniversary. As time progressed, commercialism has led to more anniversaries having a specific gift such as paper for the first wedding anniversary.

In the United States, a married couple can receive a greeting from the President of the United States on their 50th anniversary or any anniversaries after.

In Canada, you can receive a message from the Governor General for the 50th anniversary and every fifth anniversary after that.
