One year after wedding day (green wedding) a chintz (gauze) wedding is celebrated. This name came to us from antiquity, it is associated with certain traditions associated with marriage and family life..
As you know, chintz is a very thin fabric. So, married life one year after the wedding was associated with this material. The first year will live, the young people get to know each other better, overcome the first family difficulties, encounter everyday life and the difficult life of family relationships.
Love has not cooled down yet and has not lost its bright colors, but the relationship is very fragile and shaky. Even the smallest storm in the ocean of conjugal passions can break, destroy, extinguish this weak, flaring light of the family hearth of a young family. This first wedding anniversary of marriage is celebrated a year after the green wedding. This wedding anniversary is called so because it marks the transition from bright colors of the honeymoon to the everyday life of family life, so to speak, chintz simplicity.
A year after the wedding, it is customary to open one of the two bundled bottles of champagne that were presented to the young on their wedding day (the second bottle, as usual, opens for birth in the first-born family). Witnesses and best friends, as well as parents, are required to attend the chintz wedding..
For a banquet dedicated to the first anniversary, be sure to use chintz elements - tablecloths, scarves, napkins, etc. Previously, the young wife herself embroidered stunning color patterns on chintz tablecloths, now you can simply decorate the table with fresh flowers.
