4 Tips for Your Wedding Anniversary Party


Wedding anniversaries, especially the milestone years, can be the perfect time to celebrate your marriage once more. They are a fantastic opportunity to surround yourself with your nearest and dearest friends and family, and to remember all the great things about your relationship with your spouse to date. Below are 4 tips for planning the perfect wedding anniversary party in Sydney:



Just like at the wedding itself, many people like to organise a delicious cake to share with their guests. Why not re-create the wedding cake you had on your big day? Or opt for a contemporary twist on the original. This will add a special touch of nostalgia to the anniversary celebrations and bring back fond memories for all involved.


Display Table

Wedding anniversary parties are all about celebrating the union of marriage and the memories which have been created along the way. A display table at your anniversary party is a beautiful way to remind your guests of these memories and could include things like framed photos of the couple throughout the years, including shots from the big day or honeymoon, with your children if applicable or other particularly special moments in your relationship.



Music for the wedding anniversary party should be a mix of songs which were played on the big day, favourite songs of the couple through the years and a selection of current tunes. While live music is always a popular choice, a DJ or even just a well-chosen Spotify playlist in the background will also go down a treat!



Depending on the size of your anniversary party, you may opt for a sit-down meal or finger food for you and your guests. Here at the DOG, we will be happy to assist you with your options and what is popular with others in your position!

We have venue spaces for small and large groups of people and packages to suit different budgets. Please call or email us today to speak to one of our friendly events team!

I just wanted to send out thanks and compliments. Our function yesterday was amazing, both the food and venue were very impressive. We had so many comments from our guests on both how delicious the meal was and the great venue. Baptiste and his staff were excellent. Couldn't be happier with the day.

I would like to thank you and the staff who worked at our function on Saturday who provided seamless and efficient service. There were many compliments from those who attended on the quality of food and the venue itself. Can you please pass on our thanks to the Chef and the rest of the staff.

I had a great experience at the DOG last weekend. i had booked outside however due to the cold weather the team changed the booking at the very last minute and set our group of 20 up with a new spot indoors. Roast dinner was delicious and only had good feedback from other guests. Love the beer selection!!

Blake S – July 2016

We had a great day & everything went to plan. The music was brilliant & got the atmosphere going! 
Thanks so much for your help, I would definitely use the DOG again for a function or recommend you to others.

It was a good night. Our older guests were very impressed with the refurbishment of the hotel.We were very happy with the attentiveness and help of your Manager on the night....can't remember his name but seemed to have a French accent. Also bar staff good, particularly the young woman who came out from the bar and helped us during the night in various ways.

All guests had an amazing time and were really well fed. The staff at the DOG were very polite and accommodating, no issues with them at all.  Really impressive. The Manager was very helpful and attentive.  I did not need to ask for remind him or the chefs on anything. I did say thank you to the staff, but if you could please pass on my compliments again. I will definitely recommend your venue.
