Assuming it doesn’t upset you too much, I would just go with it. Depending on when it happen during the reception most people will probably be too busy mingling to be offended for any reason. I was so busy I didn’t notice a lot of announcements and things during the dancing part of the reception. And if your parents are paying for a large portion of the reception than you probably should let them. However as for the issue of your mom being uncomfortable you should discuss this with you dad. He may realize that you are right about her not liking something like this. Maybe keep it a short ans sweet announcement, nothing elaborate.

My future in-law’s anniversay is the day before our wedding.  We’re planning on playing "their song" but not announcing anything.  If it was me, I think I would tell my dad that I don’t want to embarass mom and so you’ll play their song but not annouce it. 

Is there a way to honor them at the rehearsal dinner or at a morning after brunch if you’re having one?  That way your dad could have his announcement and time in the spotlight, but it would be a more intimate crowd so that your mom would be comfortable.

I like the idea of playing your parent’s song. If you dad still wants to announce it, maybe the DJ can also invite other couples with close anniversaries onto the dance floor. That makes is so that both your parents and various couples are recognized without your mum being uncomfortable.
