Your 19th wedding anniversary is celebrated with bronze, great for garden statues and those that fancy a bronze bust but if not, here are some alternatives.
Think of the bronze colour, you can get beautiful roses, chrysanthemums and dahlias, ask your local florist for those that are in season on your anniversary. Clever flower growers have also started naming their flowers with Anniversary in the name.
For those of you that love to travel how about a trip to see the ancient bronze statues in Greece and while you are there you could have a lovely holiday as well! You can buy reproduction ancient statues to bring home.
Vintage wines are also a very personal 19th wedding anniversary gift, just think that the wine was made the same year that you were married, why not buy a case and enjoy some now and save the rest for a later anniversary. Or wines also win prizes and medals, one of which is an International Bronze wine award, these are great wines and cost a fraction of a vintage wine. You can get some fabulous wines under $10.00 that would be great for your bronze anniversary.
Bronze is also used in medals and they are most associated with sports, if you are into your sports then start big and aim for the Olympics! Lots of fabulous cities and countries have hosted the Olympic Games so you would have lots to choose from.
If you do want to keep to a bronze gift then these lovely bronze roses are available from JustPaperRoses.
And they will last forever as they are made from bronze wool.
