It's in the word. Anniversarius, recurring yearly; annus, "year" + versus, "turned" -- and thus, an event which befalls each year. This meaning is contained in the cloth of the word itself; that is its construction, its purpose of existence, to inform you of that which is of, for, or pertaining to a year. Therefore, such fanciful concoctions as "two-month anniversary" or as "three-week anniversary" are not only charmless, but semantically absurd.

The correct term is either monthaversary or weekaversary. Technically, I suppose the a wouldn't be in there, but weekversary just doesn't sound quite right.
