What are Weddings?

Bodas is the name of the celebration of wedding parties , whether civil or religious. Weddings are celebrated every year and each year receives a different meaning and denomination.

The term "wedding" originated from the Latin " vota ", meaning "promise". Boda is a wedding celebration, the name is mostly used in the plural - wedding - and refers to the marriage vows, made on the wedding day.

For each wedding year there is a material that represents the new stage, and it is already a traditional celebration in western culture to celebrate the wedding anniversary.

The wedding tradition arose in Germany, where it was the custom in small towns to offer a silver crown to couples who had been married for 25 years, and a gold crown to those who reached 50.

So, over the centuries, other symbols were created for the following years, and the longer you've been married, the greater the importance of the material, which ranges from the most fragile to the most resistant.

In addition to the names of the wedding anniversary, it is also possible to find lists with the names of the wedding anniversary, to commemorate the months and years. It is important to mention that the lists are not official, and therefore there are often differences in the designation of some weddings.
