I need ideas/advice
We are getting married on my parent’s 28th wedding anniversary, which is very special and exciting to share with them.
We want to do something special for my parents at the reception, but not sure what to do. Anyt ideas?

We’re in the same boat! Getting married on my FI’s parent’s 30th anniversary on June 30th.

It would be cute if you played their first dance song from their wedding and had them dance again.

My friend who just got married was going to have the DJ announce a special dance for her great aunt’s 50th anniversary. He was going to play their “first dance” song, and have them lead with the dancing and then have other people join them halfway through. Maybe you can do something like that? You could also have an anniversary cake there, and/or include one speech in the festivities. Are your grandparents still alive? Maybe one of them would like to give a speech/toast to your parents.

I agree/love the “first dance” tribute idea.
I also think it’d be something worth mentioning in programs. 🙂

@maggiemay0811: Maybe with the first dance you could have a cake for them?
How special is your wedding night going to be! Love it

@samanthajkellie: Or what about have a justice of the peace renew their vows? That would only take 10-15 minutes and would be gorgeous and so special for everyone to be a part of.

Thank you so much! These are all wonderful ideas! I know they were unable to dance at their wedding which really saddens my mom, so maybe we can play their song and let them dance!

I would do a “anniversary” dance for your parents, where you play their first dance song. And maybe present them with a gift & give a toast to them?

You could make a special toast to them.

Love the idea of your parents having a first dance, and most especially, a nice toast for them. What about a little cake for them to cut too? Don’t know if that is going overboard, but sounds cute to me. Even if you just had this special cake at their table, and brought out as a surprise for them.

My parents’ anniversary is the week after (specifically wanted to avoid their day and let it stay “theirs”) but I plan to have something nice for them at the rehearsal dinner. Not 100% sure the reception is the best way to celebrate, but the ladies here had good ideas too… just another thoughts

You could also give them your bouquet
