Birthdays During our Wedding Week...Suggestions...

Recommended Posts

Hey Gals,

We happen to have a fair amount of our guests celebrating their birthdays during the week of our wedding including 3 people in our bridal party as well as my godmother!! looking for some suggestions on how to recognize their birthdays w a personal touch (with out overdoing it as there are quite a few) knew you gals would have some good ideas!

thanks for you help!

I can relate as my cousin's b-day falls ON our wedding day (didn't realize it until later on) and my dad's b-day is about 6 days after. I think a good way to honor them is to have a special toast to them and to anyone else celebrating something special close to the wedding. You could also probably give them a card at their table during the reception or have small cupcakes set aside for them. HTH!

 

Not sure what we're gonna do yet since we'll also be celebrating other relative's graduations during that time too.

We had a number of guests with birthdays around our wedding including DH, my grandam and 2 of our friends. So at our welcome dinner I had them make a birthday cake and we all sang happy bday to everyone. This way the bdays were recognized but did not take away from the wedding celebrations.

I have the same problem. I booked our wedding w/o even realizing the day before is my FI's brother's bday. My younger cousin's 11th birthday is also earlier in the week. I was thinking about having a cake and singing happy birthday on FI's brother's bday which will be our welcome/rehearsal dinner night. We'll probably pay for his golfing that day too. As for my younger cousin, we're not sure if her family is coming yet but if she does come it would all depend on their arrival date but I'm sure we would have a cake for her too and maybe buy her a cute gift from the Dominican like a necklace or something. Hope this helps!

thanks Pandabride6! i love the idea of doing the bday cupcakes at the wedding reception, & making a small toast or even a song? All of my guests are arriving different days (up until the day before the wedding) so im not sure if a welcome dinner will work out for us....that proposes another question then, how do you go about that?

We have a similar situation - one of FI's sisters bday's is our wedding day, the day before is soon-to-be-SIL's bday (brother's fiance) and my bro & SIL's anniversary is also the day before. Plus we have a couple others the week before. So, we're having a celebratory bonfire on the beach with s'mores and a bday cake the night before the wedding. We're not having a rehearsal dinner so on our itinerary we just listed "special celebration gathering on the beach".

 

I really like the cupcake idea too!

My birthday is 2 days after the wedding, and FI's sister has the same birthday as me! My future BIL's birthday is the next day! I didn't even think of doing something birthday related because I wanted everything to be about the wedding until it is over and then we can celebrate!
