Ideas & Inspiration For Your 6th Wedding Anniversary
The traditional 6th wedding Anniversary is sugar. By this time in your marriage life is often seen as sweet, but you may need to think outside the box a little, specially if your partner does not have a sweet tooth. The modern alternative to sugar is iron, which opens up lots more possibilities to inspire your gifts. Here we share a few of our ideas with you.
Nothing says sugar and all things sweet like honey ! Escape to the East Anglian countryside and you might see the bees of Sunnyfields gathering nectar and turning it into glorious, rich honey. With their range of experiences, hive sponsorship and products for you to choose from there's sure to be something to suit all tastes.
2. Cupcake Bouquets
These stunning cupcake bouquets are sure to put a smile on your loved ones face, and with so many colour choices you really are spoiled for choice. Why not have cupcakes that match your original wedding colour theme to make them even more special ? And, the best thing is they are from a small Braintree business, Bouqcakes & Bakes so you are supporting your local community too ! The silver/grey bouquet is perfect for representing iron too so you could even cover both traditional and modern anniversary gift ideas.
