What does 5 years of marriage represent?

Every year of marriage is special and 5 years represents the first milestone anniversary .

A lot has happened in 5 years of living together. We get to know each other better as husband and wife, we sometimes expand the family, we sometimes acquire housing. These 5 years are inevitably full of ups and downs, life as a couple is not only made up of happy moments, and the important thing is to stay together even in difficult times.

This anniversary also represents a change in status: we are no longer considered newlyweds. Beyond status, many things change because routine sets in and it is necessary to keep the relationship alive.

If after all these events the couple remains united in marriage, the 5-year anniversary is an opportunity to mark the occasion and celebrate this union.

There are several ways to celebrate your 5th wedding anniversary and tradition dictates that the event is associated with wood.

What are wooden weddings?

The association of matter with wedding anniversaries dates back to the 18th century. There are some variations depending on the country and in France the 5 years of marriage correspond to the wooden wedding .

Wood is quite a symbol for this anniversary.
Its nobility illustrates the importance of the 5-year marriage milestone.

Its solidity contrasts with those of previous weddings of cotton, leather, wheat and wax. After 5 years, the couple has built solid foundations on which the marriage can flourish. Like the roots of a tree, once firmly anchored in the ground, the sap can flow and the branches can develop.

Its flexibility and durability symbolize the resistance of the marriage to bad weather. Whatever the conditions or environment, wood knows how to deform and adapt while retaining its structure. The tree may lose its leaves in winter, but regain them in spring.

Finally, the wood remains of indeterminate nature. We found mahogany much later (27 years), cedar (49 years) and even oak (80 years, did you know that only 5 couples reached them in France?).

After 5 years, the marriage is still young and it is up to the couple to define over the course of their lives what it will be made of.

How to choose a painting to celebrate your wooden wedding anniversary?

What is the most important place for your relationship?

For some, it's the meeting place, where it all started. For others, it is the place of the marriage proposal, a moment etched forever in the memories. There are those who wish to find the location of the wedding ceremony, and those who simply prefer to illustrate their primary or even secondary residence. Finally, it is possible to simply illustrate a hike that you like to do as a couple, or a beach that you like to walk on!

The important thing is that the place evokes positive memories for the couple, and BOILISÉ takes care of the rest. If this magical place is not yet in the catalog we can add it for you.

All cards are customizable with variations to choose from: select water color, frame type and color.

How to make your wooden wedding gift unique?

A personal and meaningful gift for a wedding anniversary is the most important thing. In addition to the choice of location, variants and unique serial number, we offer you 2 customization options free of charge.

The maps are deliberately abstract to keep a natural and artistic appearance, without roads or toponymic indications, and it can sometimes be difficult to find your way. By adding a precisely geolocated punch you create a discreet and explicit landmark. You have the choice between 6 shapes (house, pin, heart, square, diamond, round) to describe the place in a discreet way with a slight recess of 3mm on the side.

The back of the painting is a mysterious place, most of the time invisible and forgotten but which can contain real treasures. Have you ever turned over an old photo of your grandparents and found a message from those times with emotion? We suggest you leave your message for posterity on the back of the painting. Choose a little personal note or an inspiring quote!

It is sometimes difficult to find the words, we have selected for you below the 4 quotes that we find most suitable:
