Honour your momentous 60th wedding anniversary with cards that represent the love between you and your spouse. When you want to share the celebration of your 60 years together, take steps to ensure the wording on the invitation portrays the importance of your day. Make your 60th wedding anniversary invitation stand out as a chronicle of your time together through unique and meaningful verse.


Keep your 60th wedding anniversary invitation standard and sentimental with a romantic poem or verse that displays the rarity and preciousness of having a love that lasts 60 years. Invite your friends and family to celebrate this special occasion with you by sharing your favourite poem or quote about a love that stands the test of time. The website Homemade Free Unique Wedding Invitations provides quotes such as, "It is truly a test of love / When 60 years come and go / And two people wake each morning / As though it were their first," as well as many other sentimental quotes for a wedding invitation (see link in Resources section). Write the invitations on red cards with images of hearts, roses or champagne.


Include then-and-now pictures on your wedding invitation to showcase your long-lasting marriage over the past 60 years. Include a picture from your wedding day and one of the most recent pictures you have of you and your spouse. Place the photos side by side, and include a quote, verse or line that demonstrates what you two mean to each other. Then include information about your anniversary celebration including date, time, place and a number or address to RSVP.


If religion is a part of your life, you may choose to add a religious message to your anniversary invitation. Consider a biblical verse both you and your significant other believe is representative of your relationship -- for example, 1 Corinthians 13:4--8a: "Love is patient, love is kind." You may also go for a more subtle touch by creating an invite that explains how you and your significant other received the Lord's blessing of your new love 60 years ago and you are inviting friends and family to join you in the celebration and fulfilment of that love on your 60th anniversary.


Create an invitation that reminisces about the events that happened in the year in which you were married. For example, if you were married in 1951, the invitation may include a then-and-now picture of you and your significant other. In the background, you might have the year 1951 written in large text and bold, highlighting notable events such as the eruption of Mount Lamington, the ratification of the 22nd amendment, the publication of "The Catcher in the Rye" and the release of Walt Disney's "Alice in Wonderland," as well as any other events important to you. In the foreground on a contrasting background that stands out, place information about the anniversary celebration.
