Cotton Second Wedding Anniversary – The History

Your second anniversary is a moment to celebrate another year together as a married couple, and to look at all of the memories and everything that has happened in those two years. The traditional gift for this year is cotton. In some ways, cotton is similar to paper but it is a thicker woven material that is said to represent the strengthening of your bond. Cotton is a flexible and durable material that has many threads that hold it together, so it represents you both adding more to your relationship and binding together to be even stronger and more adaptable than your first year of marriage.
