For a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary, you can select designs like hearts to represent love and warmth, flowers to represent beauty, champagne bottle to represent celebration, a funny cartoon of a couple for couples who like humor, silver wedding bells, or bold and big letters with 25th or 50th printed on it.
