The paper anniversary symbolizes the fragile period of the relationship between husband and wife. After the first year, when everything is new, rosy and interesting, the spouses look at each other more soberly, begin to see flaws. At this stage, it is especially important to show condescension, understanding and love for the partner, and holding the jubilee in a fun scenario is designed to help the jubilees in this.
Preparations for the celebration of the biennium should be done in advance. The culprits of the paper celebration will have to decide how they want to celebrate the anniversary - it will be a narrow family circle with close relatives and friends or a large-scale event where friends and acquaintances will come. If paper anniversaries have a child, you need to decide whether a son or daughter will be present during the holiday.
If the culprits of the paper celebration want to have a theme party with a dress code, you need to warn guests at least a couple of weeks before they can prepare their clothes. Everything from invitations to napkins should correspond to a single style. You also need to take care of the invitation of a photographer who will make memorable photos.

Decoration of the venue
A paper wedding gives the heroes of the day a lot of ideas on the decor of the room by its name. Various paper decorations can become elements of the decoration of the hall: these are Japanese origami, openwork paper napkins, napkin sculptures on dishes. Chinese paper lanterns will become a cozy lighting solution for the decor of the event. As for the flowers decorating the room, snow-white, light beige, lemon, cream shades are suitable.
Musical accompaniment for the anniversary
Ideal for musical accompaniment of a paper anniversary, live music is suitable if the heroes of the occasion have enough financial resources to pay for the services of the group. Also, anniversaries can make a playlist of their favorite melodic songs - the music should be calm, background, but not sad. The competition program should be voiced separately, with more fun compositions..
Paper Wedding Scenario

When guests find their seats and sit down, the leader takes the floor:
