    Hi Alokgowda,
    Sashtiapthapoorthi is celebrated on the 60th birthday itself. Normally, it is celebrated according our star as per panchangam (not Date of birth). It is customary to pour holy water on the couple and Ayush Homam is performed. It is then followed by tying the wedding knot again!

    It is the Sathabhishekam which is celebrated after the 80th birthday because it is is believed to perform Sathbhiskhekam after 1000 Pirais (meaning 1000 Crescents)
    Hope this clarifies.

    Regards

    USHA
