After eight years from the date of marriage, the couple celebrate a tin wedding. Tin is a material that has not in vain become a symbol of the anniversary. This metal is useful in everyday life, and the strength of the tin used during construction helps to protect houses from destruction. The wedding anniversary scenario will help those who celebrate the celebration to spend their eighth anniversary in a fun and original way..
For the anniversary to go perfectly, the organizers of the celebration will have to do serious preparation. Depending on what the spouses want, it can be small cozy gatherings with parents, brothers, sisters and close friends or a large-scale banquet, where spouses will invite many guests.
A beautiful anniversary implies careful attention to detail: for the holiday, you should prepare invitation cards, seating cards made in the same style, provide a beautiful decor of the room, do music, paint the competition program. It is also necessary to take care of the invitation of the leader who implements the scenario of the celebration.
Decoration of the venue
There are no special rules for decorating a room for a tin celebration - it all depends on the wishes of the husband and wife. An old tradition may become an interesting solution: earlier, during a tin wedding, the couple put up a bucket near the house, which was filled with alcohol, and put a cup next to it. Everyone could drink from it for the happiness and long life of anniversaries. Such a bucket can be arranged in the banquet hall, but it is better to fill it with not too strong alcohol (beer, wine, cider).
The theme of the wedding is well reflected in the metallic shades of the interior - gray, silver. For decor, silver appliances, candlesticks, plates, dishes can be used. Tablecloths and draperies for roofing, as well as chairs are proposed to be made of silver satin or other fabrics with a metallic sheen.
Musical accompaniment for the anniversary
Spouses can make a selection of their favorite songs to accompany the celebration or invite a local musical group. Live music is ideal for large-scale tin celebration. Since 8 years is not such a long time for marriage, musical preferences will have something in common with today's stage.
If not only people close to the family are invited to the anniversary celebration, then it is mandatory to plan the dance part of the music. Dancing is a break between tables, the opportunity to get to know the guests better, and just a pleasure that is not often seen in modern times.
