it was my SIL 1st anniversary the day after our wedding and we just had a little toast to them  

i think sweet and simple is nice and tasteful. I personally think a cake or dance ia over the top…i would feel really odd cutting a cake at someone else wedding unless it was a huge milestone like 50  yrs

playing their song during the night would be cute too but nothing like everyone standing around watching them dance

It will be my fiance’s brother’s first anniversary the next day after our wedding. They are staying at the b&b with us (as well as my brother & his gf and my Maid/Matron of Honor and her husband). They’ll be in the second nicest room and that’s where the boys will get ready. We are telling ourselves that we are giving them a weekend at a b&b for their anniversary. We are also planning to have a sign for them to hold that says “One Year Later” in the font from their invitations, and I’m trying to figure out what else to do. Perhaps play their first dance song and announce that it was their first song 🙂 but let everyone dance? Not sure yet . . .

We have a couple who are spending their anniversary at our wedding.  We’re playing a song for them & toasting them, then having them start off the dancing to the song. I’d suggest you do something like that for your sister.  It’d be pretty weird not to imo.  It’s one thing if you’re getting married on a random guest’s anniversary, but since it’s your sister, you should say/do something small at least.

linnylou_88:  It’s up to you really…… I actually had one of my Darling Husband relatives come up and grab the mic from the emcee and start going on about how it was so and so’s bday and proceeded to get the whole room to sing happy birthday….. I was not impressed because it was so RUDE on how he did it. So if you think anyone will take it upon themselves to say something, then I’d figure out a plan so you can causally mention it without someone else making it a huge deal lol. Saying a happy anniversay to my sis would be fine in your speech!

I think a small gift/card at their table and a short/sweet toast would be perfect! I, personally, think it would be awkward not to acknowledge it because you are so close (sisters) so it’s not like distant relatives that you don’t know their anniversary.

We acknowledged our friends’ upcoming weddings and engagements at our wedding during our thank you speeches, so I don’t think it’d be weird.

It was my friend’s 11th wedding anni on my wedding day. I didn’t know that when I picked the date, but we got them a small couple’s cake and had “happy 11th” written on it. It made my friend (who was also my bm) cry! She loooooooved it!
