No matter what time of year it is, it’s always someone’s wedding anniversary. But it’s undeniable that some months are more popular for weddings than others. In fact, there’s no month that’s seen more weddings in recent years than October. Nearly one-fifth of all 2022 weddings will take place in October, which is pretty much in line with recent years.
This all, of course, means that more people are celebrating their anniversaries in the next month or so than at any other time of year. And what could possibly make a better anniversary gift than a floral arrangement? Whether you’re buying for your spouse, or a couple that’s near to your heart, here are some floral arrangement ideas for October anniversaries:
Traditionally, carnations are the flowers associated with the first wedding anniversary, as they are supposed to represent the passion on young love. But if you want to go against the grain, here’s another idea: have your floral arrangement themed like your wedding was. Remind your partner of your special day with just the right floral arrangement.
There is a traditional flower gift for each anniversary until the 15th and then every five years until 30 and then every 10 years until 50. For example: cosmos for the second anniversary, sunflowers for the third, daffodil for the 10th, Iris for the 25th, yellow roses and violets for the 50th, etc. If you don’t have a better idea for a gift, you can simply follow tradition and make your spouse happy anyway.
After the first 15 years of marriage, you won’t have a traditional flower or floral arrangement to choose from and will have to come up with something on your own. Perhaps you could choose one that suits the season you got married. Maybe your spouse has a favorite type of flower or one that is very special to them that you could give them. Or you could be adventurous and try something completely new.
