You don’t need a reason or occasion to get flowers for your nearest and dearest but should you need one, your anniversary definitely takes that top spot. It’s just one of those things that signify romance and love – and a milestone as big as another year of being together deserves flowers. A bunch of them! It does not matter if you’re getting flowers as a massive bouquet, inside a fancy vase, as decors for wherever you’re celebration may be, or even as part of your entrée – flowers are a must for an event as important as your anniversary and it’s always a good idea to shop around to find the best deals.
But not all flowers are made equal – especially not where anniversaries are concerned. Some types of flowers are better off reserved for other occasions- like your lover’s birthday or Valentine’s Day. But for your anniversaries, you can easily go beyond the roses and explore other options – which we have included in this list. You can get a bunch of the same flowers or a bouquet that comes with a combination of any of these flowers to send your loved one the perfect message.
Amaryllis – Amaryllis flowers are more popularly known to signify pride and determination, but the red ones are your best anniversary choice as they signify splendid beauty which, in our opinion, is a wonderful message to say to a spouse of several years.
Red Carnations – this flower combines some of the best meanings in one: love, pride, and admiration.
Chrysanthemums- white chrysanthemums are the best ones to give out for your seventh year for couples or partners who are dreading the so-called ‘seven year itch’. Renew your commitment and provide your partner assurance with white chrysanthemums which are known as symbols of honesty and loyal love.
