Traditional Gift: Paper
Paper has two specific traits that symbolize what a 1st wedding anniversary can mean to one another:
- A "Blank Canvas": This signifies that even though you've shared the first year of marriage together, there is still plenty of "room" for the couple's future story to be written.
- Paper is Easily Ripped: This is a reminder on a 1st anniversary that the couple has yet to face the many life hurdles that could easily add extra stress to the relationship. Paper therefore strengthens the importance of good communication, as well as faith and trust in one another.These are just some of the ingredients to a long lasting healthy relationship.
