The fourth anniversary of the marriage is called a linen wedding. It was not in vain that linen became a symbol of the jubilee, because after four years of life, relations have strengthened - from the fragile fabric of calico, they have transformed into durable material that is not so easy to break. To have a fun flax celebration, anniversaries will need an original fun scenario with contests, games, congratulations.
To begin with, the culprits of the flax celebration need to decide how to spend the fourth anniversary. Spouses can call only the closest people - relatives, best friends, and can throw a large-scale party with many friends and acquaintances. If the jubilees became parents, you need to think: will the child participate in the event. Also, the couple should take into account the next anniversary, the date of which is better suited for a large celebration - then a linen wedding can be held quietly.
If the couple decided to celebrate the flaxen anniversary on a large scale, they need to invite a professional toastmaster who will share the burden of the organization. Anniversaries who decide to arrange a theme party with a dress code must inform guests in advance..

Cozy decor will ensure a good mood for those present.
