Commonly referred to as the diamond anniversary, the 60th wedding anniversary celebration can focus on diamonds in the rough. For example, the couple can pinpoint moments in the marriage that were noteworthy, such as dates children and grandchildren were born, promotions at jobs, travels endured and new friends acquired throughout the years. At a special celebratory reception, guests can compile special memories of the couple on a poster board, play trivia games with information about the couple and present the couple with gifts to honor the couple's union. Another good idea to celebrate the marriage is to choose a memorable location where the couple met, celebrated a previous anniversary or said their wedding vows to gather.
