    Do you have to bring a gift to a 25th wedding anniversary?

    It’s always a nice gesture to bring a gift to a 25th wedding anniversary celebration to honor the couple’s milestone achievement, but it’s not a requirement. Many couples will state in the invitation “no gifts please“.

    Although the traditional gift for a 25th anniversary is silver, you can also consider more personal or creative options that suit the couple’s tastes and interests. However, if you’re unsure what to bring or can’t bring a gift, it’s okay too! The most important thing is to show up and offer your warm wishes to the happy couple.
