50th marriage anniversary invitations are an invite for individuals to celebrate a half century of love between two people. A couple that has survived this long have likely built quite a legacy in those fifty years. Their children have produced grandchildren and there may even be great grandchildren in the mix. The generations just keep building and this one particular long-lasting union is the foundation to all of that. On the flipside, this union have likely suffered great loss to family members and friends that were close to their heart. When the rollercoaster ride of up’s and down’s has weathered the storm for the past half century, there is a definite need to celebrate. And in fifty years time there are likely many people touched by the presence of these two people, perhaps individually or as a couple. Family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Needless to say there should be no shortage of invites going out.
Your 50th marriage anniversary invitations should display some delicate design significant of the occasion. For instance, the 50th marriage anniversary is popularly referred to as the gold anniversary. The likely party décor will include things like golden paper doilies under plates, china with white gold trim, gold ribbons and tassels around napkins or the back of chairs and gold candlesticks or votive holders decorating the table. You may want the engraving of your invite cards; say the initials of husband and wife, the year of the marriage and marriage anniversary, etc. to be done in gold letter or the card invite to be decorated with gold trim to reflect the occasion.
There is nothing more special than a couple marking 50 years together, especially in this day when many marriages can’t even make it 10 years! All marriage anniversaries are a time of celebration and reflection but half of a century together is even more noteworthy and special. A likely theme of the anniversary party will be “Then & today”. Maybe the DJ will only play music from the year the two were married with guests receiving a compilation CD. There may be slide show presentations of old movies. Another nice touch would be to include the “Then & today” theme in their 50th marriage anniversary invitations. Decorating the invitation with an original marriage photo or another photo from their youth complimented by a photo of the couple as they are today could do this.
