Half a century of marriage, 50 years of commitment, five decades of dedication. However you choose to describe it, it’s a miraculous occasion worthy of high praise and great celebration.

Toasting your Parents: If you’re looking to mark a major milestone like your parents’ 50th wedding anniversary for example, consider a lively family party!

Hire a DJ or small combo of live musicians and deck out the hall with pictures of your parents through the years. Consider decorating tables with the same flowers that brightened their wedding so many years ago.

Congratulating Your Parents: Golden Anniversary wishes should be heartfelt and well thought out, whether you’re borrowing quotations or crafting your own note of praise.

If you choose to write your own note of congratulations, consider this sample: “A Golden Anniversary doesn’t come along every day. It’s the culmination of half a century of love and commitment and we’re honored to have seen it play out. Thank you for setting a remarkable example and we wish you all the love in the world!”

If you decide to let a golden wedding anniversary quotation stand in place of a self-composed inscription, you have a lot of choices. We have compiled a list of 50 year anniversary love quotes, romantic poems, personalized messages, or bible verses to get you started.

Gifting Your Parents: Let’s be honest, a major milestone anniversary isn’t the same without a beautiful gift. And while there are piles of presents to choose from, you want to make sure the gift you choose is worthy of the 50 years of marriage it’s celebrating. A weekend getaway or trip to a day spa can be relaxing and luxurious. A photo album or DVD of important lifetime moments can be sentimental and nostalgic. Commissioning a new family portrait is another option is you can assemble the family without too many problems.

Investing in something finer, like 100 percent optical crystal takes a Golden Anniversary gift and turns it into something eternal; a true memento. Crystal Central’s Golden Anniversary plaques can be personalized with deep etch engraving included in the price. It’s hard to imagine something more perfect to honor a marriage that’s lasted 50 years than brilliant crystal, inscribed with a beautiful message and detailed to your exact specifications.
