I think finding out what their song is and having the DJ announce something is a cute idea, or if you are doing a video of pictures of you and your FI as the last picture you could do a picture of the 2 of them on their wedding day, and put a caption saying something like ” Thanks for sharing your special day with us, happy 5th anniversary.

We actually have the exact same situation – we’re having their song played, and the DJ will dedicate it to them..  We just asked him in casual conversation about choosing our wedding song, what there’s had been, and found it out that way.

I think the speech is the best route. Or if you don’t want to make and entire speech just say a few simple kind words. “Thanks for coming, and a special thank you to the best man and his lovely wife who are married 5 years today. Congradulations!”

OR ask them to join you in “first dance” (or second or third or whatever… you get the idea)

I like the idea of getting the DJ to play their song. You’re playing him so the DJ shouldn’t have anything to say go for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

@Natalieh86: I was thinking BM too..just try and see. You never know. Also, if it boils down to it just ask her. She doesn’t have to know the reason. Just say you need ideas for your first dance. Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

A really good friend of mine got married on a date that was a second friend’s birthday and a third friend’s one-year wedding anniversary (popular date!). She did play the other couple’s first dance song for them, and also had little personalized cakes for them that were delivered to them at their tables while we were all eating dessert. They were personalized in terms of flavor (their favorites) and what was written on top. I know they were both really touched by it because it showed that she had put a lot of thought into making that happen.

Just a thought! ๐Ÿ™‚
