Wedding Anniversary Themes and Colours

As each anniversary that you are likely to celebrate has a definite theme, from paper for the first year, to diamond for the sixtieth, you might like to think about decorating your venue to tie in with this theme. This could just mean colored tablecloths, napkins and a few flowers and balloons, or something more elaborate. 

We have included a list of anniversaries below and the theme color. If they are not listed then we do not have a color listed for that year.

The colors listed are not a definitive list they have been collected during our research into wedding anniversaries and generally reflect the traditional anniversary theme or material associated with the year.
