If the person is living in the city in where the wedding party is going to be conducted, they will invite them personally by visiting their house and giving the invitation and also inviting them. This method is also considered informal. If they want to conduct a formal party with their friends and family members, they have to write each and every invitation by hand. Only handwritten invitation is considered as formal invitation. Otherwise, every method which we presently follow like printing the invitation and giving them personally in their hand and also printing invitation and sending by post, all of these methods are considered as informal. In simple words, if we print the invitation and distribute it, it is considered as informal invitation and if we personally write invitation in our hand and distribute it, it is considered as formal invitation. This is known as “SILVER JUBLEE”.

This wedding anniversary is celebrated in different ways and also in different styles. Some wealthy people will organize party on their wedding day and they will invite their friends and family members. In that party, they will cut cakes and they will share their joy with everybody who has come to their party. Some of the wealthy people are even crazy and they will plan before one month as to how to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Some of them will plan to visit some developed countries like, U.S.A. , FRANCE, GERMANY etc. They visit these countries for the love of adventure and also they are going to these countries because to have a change of mind. Some of them will also organize a grand gala buffet dinner for everyone who has come to their “ANNIVERSARY” party. They will organize games, riddles etc. They may even hire a “magician” to perform magic tricks during their wedding anniversary. In developed countries like U.S.A., they will conduct a party and they will hire a “mime” artist instead of hiring a “magician”. They will cut a wedding cake on their “WEDDING ANNIVERSARY”. The cake may be a “TWO -TIER CAKE” or it may be a “THREE – TIER CAKE” or it may be a “FIVE – TIER CAKE”. It depends on the mood of the couple. Some of them may even spray the foam by keeping the hand above them and pressing them by keeping the nozzle upwards. It is done in this way because, it will make a feeling that snow is falling in our country. This is sprayed to just have fun. This is sprayed at the time of cutting the cake. They will make this event a memorable event by taking photographs in camera and taking videos in video camera. They will save and also they will convert those videos in a DVD and they will see that video whenever they like to see that video. They are doing this because, they wanted to record the events which happened in their anniversary and also they will watch that video whenever they find time. They will also see the video and they will recall all the fun time that they had with their friends and family members. They will spend lots of time with their friends and family members. It will be like a family re-union and also it will be like a family get-together. When we were in Chennai, I and my Father and my Mother organized my Father and Mother’s 25th wedding anniversary. We arranged the wedding anniversary when we were in Chennai. We organized a party in ALOFT HOTELS, “W”HOTELS; it is a seven star hotel. We sent an informal invitation to our friends and family members. Informal invitation means we created some words and we printed those words in the invitation. I, my Father and my Mother created some sentences and those sentences was printed in an invitation. We also attached photographs of mine, my father’s and also my mother’s photographs. We attached my photo on the front side of the invitation and at the backside of the invitation, we attached my Father and my Mother’s photos and also we created some words for the invitation. We created some words that as if I was inviting everyone to attend the 25th anniversary of my Father and my Mother. We created these words, “This is the day when my Father and Mother put their hands together and they started their life together…” it will continue like this and I did not type the full paragraph because, I forgot the lines in that paragraph. These captions are typed under my photo. It will seem like as if I am organizing the party and also I am inviting everyone personally on behalf of my Father and my Mother. But for real, it was organized by my Father and my Mother. At the instance, when our friends and relatives received our invitation which we sent it through post, all our friends and relatives were astonished. They have never seen a 25th wedding anniversary invitation like this before and also none of our relatives and friends thought that they will create these types of words that as if I am inviting everyone for the occasion and also no one imagined that we can attach photos of the host of the occasion i.e. the photos of me and my Mother and my Father. Everyone came to our function i.e. each and every friend and relatives came to our function and also they were astonished by the way we celebrated the 25th wedding anniversary of my Father and my Mother. Everyone had a great time. My younger brother prepared some riddle question and he asked that riddle questions to the guests. We also distributed prizes for those who answered the correct answers for those riddle questions and then after that, we requested the Hotel manager to play some Tamil movie songs and except me and my Mother, everyone danced to that song. My Father also danced to that movie song. Everyone appreciated the dance which my Father has dance on that day. It was a wonderful experience for us. We had a great time by enjoying with our friends and family members.
