Why is Bronze the Symbol for the Eighth Anniversary?
As bronze is an amalgamation of tin and copper, so it can be seen that marriage is the joining of two people, who together are stronger. It represents the strength that has been achieved over eight years, combining time and perseverance. Bronze is said to have healing powers and can symbolise the healthy state of marriage, overcoming any challenges and obstacles by working together as a couple. As bronze today is mainly used for electrical connectors, it’s hardly the most romantic of materials!
