Daisho is translated from Japanese as "big and small". The term refers to a pair of swords; the katana and the wakizashi. Samurai were not permitted to carry their long swords into certain places, such as the royal court. When entering such a building the katana was removed for the duration of the samurai's stay, but he retained the wakizashi for personal defense.

The daisho has been a symbol of the samurai class from the Muromachi Period to the present day.

You could put together a coglale of photos from the last 25 years, incorporate headlines from the papers, pictures of album covers they loved and other pictures that are very personal to them.You could also put this in a scrapbook with a separate page for each year.Silver frames also are very appropriate for the 25th anniversary.Have the wedding photo digitally enhanced and have it printed on canvas.

We surprised my paernts with a wedding vow renewal ceremony, all 5 kids, spouses and grandkids were there. Made a great photo which we mounted in a silver frame.My paernts lived in Lake Tahoe for their 25th so this was easy for us to pull this off, maybe not so easy depending on where you live.
