Wedding anniversaries are a special time for any couple to look back and celebrate the good times that they’ve enjoyed, be that over one year or 50! Of course, we believe that no anniversary is complete without flowers. Did you know that much as each anniversary is marked by certain gifts, there are certain flowers you should pick for each one, too? Here’s what to choose and what those choices mean.
