The sixth anniversary of the marriage is called a cast-iron wedding. Cast iron - the first metal that has become a symbol of the jubilee - by this time the family has strengthened. However, it is at the same time a fragile material that requires constant care. Holding a cast-iron wedding will help spouses to take a fresh look at each other, and an interesting scenario will make the event unforgettable.
Before preparation, the perpetrators of the cast iron celebration need to determine the scale of the event. Young anniversaries can call only the closest - relatives, friends, or have a fun noisy party. The cast-iron anniversary is considered a family event, but modern newlyweds are happy to have a great celebration. If the culprits of the pig-iron celebration have already happened to have a baby, you should first think about whether couples with children will be present at the celebration.
After forming the list of guests, the invitation stage begins. If the anniversaries arrange a thematic cast-iron celebration with a dress code, you need to send invitations with instructions in a few weeks. You should also hire a photographer so that you have beautiful shots as a keepsake.
The video below will help you create unique DIY invitations:
Decoration of the venue
The color of cast iron is black. Young spouses can use black elements when decorating a banquet hall, but this heavy color should not be much. It is good to combine dark details with calmer, light tones of space (for example, a beige tablecloth and black napkins). You should also use cast iron products to decorate the table - candle holders, figurines are well suited for decoration, and some dishes can be served in cast iron pots.
According to tradition, on the day of the cast-iron wedding, the wife hung pans on the street. Cast iron requires constant care in order to maintain a presentable appearance; the whole household was judged by the cleanliness and beauty of the kitchen utensils. Cast-iron heroes of the anniversary can arrange a small exhibition of their dishes at the entrance to the hall, so that the guests do not have doubts about their worth as owners of the house.
Musical accompaniment for the anniversary
If financial opportunities allow, invite a musical group to the celebration. In another case, a simple selection of songs made by heroes of the day will do..
