16th Wedding Anniversary

The Basics

The 16th wedding anniversary is traditionally celebrated with gifts of silverware or hollowware. Silverware represents the preciousness of the relationship, while hollowware symbolizes the emptiness that must be filled with love. Couples often celebrate by exchanging gifts or taking a trip together. Some traditional ideas include renewing wedding vows or hosting a dinner party with close friends and family. The focus is on celebrating the love, commitment, and growth in the first 16 years of marriage.
