Its your choice

How you choose to celebrate may set the precedence to many happy years together, if your partner decides not to celebrate your anniversary how you like now is probably the best time to discuss what your feelings are.

Intimate Celebrations

The first anniversary, as is typical for all the early anniversaries, is normally celebrated by the couple in an intimate manner, it is the later anniversaries where lavish parties are thrown; having said that if you are a party animal there is nothing stopping you having a party, get your mates round and watch the wedding video together over a pizza and a few drinks.

If you do decide to throw a celebration then it would be down to the couple to arrange the function, this does not mean you have to do it personally merely that the burden is not traditionally placed on any other family member.

If you were wondering what is a textile, wikipedia provide the following:

A Textile is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres (yarn or thread). Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool, flax, cotton, hemp, or other materials to produce long strands. Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, or felting.

The related words fabric and cloth are often used in textile assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking) as synonyms for textile. However, there are subtle differences in these terms in specialised usage. A textile is any material made of interlacing fibres, including carpeting and geotextiles. A fabric is a material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding that may be used in production of further goods (garments, etc.). Cloth may be used synonymous with fabric but is often a piece of fabric that has been processed.
