A wedding anniversary is an anniversary of the date on which a wedding took place. Married persons who regard the day of their marriage as important may mark the occasion in some special way.
 
The 7th wedding anniversary is called the Copper Anniversary and the 10th anniversary is called the Aluminum Anniversary. Someone is expected to give gifts made of copper or wool and Aluminum or tin to a couple celebrating the appropriate anniversary. Both these dates are popularly celebrated ialong with the much later Silver, Platinum, Gold and Diamond anniversaries.
