Baby's Birthday Party During Wedding Weekend?
Posted 12 January 2009 - 08:52 AM
My daughter turns one at the end of March (time flies!) and we are trying to plan her first birthday party. my brother-in-law is getting married here in miami at the beginning of March. So needless to say ALL of our family is flying in for his wedding at the beginning of March so nobody will be able to attend/fly back in for her birthday party if we have it at the end of March. Sooooo would it be complete poor taste to try to fit in a small birthday party for Avery the day before their wedding? I HATE to do that to them because i do not want to take away from their day AT ALL but if we don't have it during the wedding weekend then she will not have any family members at her 1st birthday party...................ugh I know I shouldn't do it during their wedding but i really want her grandparents, great-grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc to be with us to celebrate her 1st birthday.
ok what do you think? what would you think as a bride? be honest please!

If the day after just won't work, talk with them about it. But be prepared to back off if your FSIL hedges at all. If it had been me, I would have been irked about something before, but totally fine with something the day after.
Happily married since 2008

the day after i wouldnt care about, if i were the bride. but maybe they need a stress reliever the day before. maybe the rehearsal dinner is a few days before. i say ask her and BIL and go from there.

If you could do it afterwards, it'd probably be better and less choatic for everyone though.
PS. Time sure does fly. It's insane how quickly that year goes.

Do you know what the wedding weekend timeline is yet?
As a recent bride, as much as I liked to say I was pretty 'laid back' ... I admit I probably would have been pissed if there was a b-day party the day before ... but now I think that would have been pretty childish of me and I wouldn't have made a big deal about it but probably would have pouted in the background, lol.
Of course, a lot depends on your BIL and his FI's personalities and whether or not you are comfortable asking them.
But before or after the wedding - I would definitely run it by them first.
