A wedding anniversary is a very important celebration in the life of every couple; it is a day to commemorate one of the most important days in their lives-the wedding day. The purpose of a wedding anniversary is to honour the memory of the wedding, this event is especially important for those couples who are celebrating for the first time.
Last year I was invited to a very special wedding anniversary. It was supposed to be Jack and Karen’s first anniversary. The event itself was to take place on the 20th of June, but the preparations sterdet a lot sooner than the actual date of the event. Since they had an unusual romantic marriage on the beach, the anniversary was sea themed. Apart from inviting the guests, the preparations included setting up decorations(such as blowing up blue ad indigo balloons)ordering special dishes as well as arranging some out of the ordinary entertainment for everyone.
On the day of the anniversary, the guests, including me, were invited to a huge decorated ballroom. The first thing I noticed upon entering the interior was an enormous adorned cake in the very middle of the interior. Only after taking a closer look at it did we notice the exquisite sugar decorations. All of them had the shape of sea themed objects such as fish, shells and boats. The circular table around the cake gave us the impression of wealth because of the dazzling array of exotic seafood on it. After having an ample dinner, champagne corks popped as the guests drank a toast to the happy couple. Few guests could fail to be amazed about the exceptional atmosphere of the celebration however, what we were most astounded about was the performances that came after the toasts. Were there a variety of not only sea themed plays with real actors but there were also movies shown on huge plasmas with a short history of the couple. Everyone had a whale of a time seeing the recordings of Jack and Karen before they were married. The fantastic anniversary ended with the couple being given a variety of presents from the guests.
The anniversary turned out to be an absolute success; it was an unforgettable experience not only for the couple but also for the guests. Personally, I felt that the celebration was a great experience and I am sure that everyone is looking forward to Jack and Karen’s next anniversary.
