Birthday's while away for wedding

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find a previous thread about this and didn't know where to start one, so here it goes.

 

I have one of my BM and MIL with birthdays durning the week we are away for our wedding.  We are actually getting married on MIL birthday.  I want to do something for them but not sure what or when.  BM day is the day after we arrive and then MIL is 2 days after that. 

 

Help or if you have any suggestions, please pass them on

 

Thanks!!!

I also have a few close friends whose birthday are the day after the wedding. I hope someone can give us some suggestions. Since our wedding is in Jamaica, we might just go to the famous Rick Cafe for the birthdays.

I have two BMs who share the same birthday, which is also when we are away.  I am throwing them a mini surprise party during my bridesmaids' lunch the day before the wedding.  The first part will be to honor and thank all of my girls (and female family members) for supporting and helping me with the wedding.  But at the end I will turn it into a birthday party and will bring out a cake/dessert/whatever is available with candles.  I will also give them a small gift later. 

 

If they are bringing their families, you might consider having your photographer take five minutes to do special family shots, then buy one for their b-days as a gift.  (This is the gift that we are giving to our officiant/best friend.)  :)

cool idea about the pics.

 

my good friend (not a BM) will be 31 on our wedding day. i talked to her early in the process about how she felt about that and she's cool with it (she's kind of a high strung person and I wanted her to feel included and heard). I hope we can take some time that night to sing to her and celebrate. since we're doing a lunch wedding & reception, maybe we can do singing and cake for her at dinner back on the ship.

One of my BM's husbands has his birthday the week we are away.  They are really excited bc they will be able to celebrate his birthday in a beautiful place.  

 

Since it doesn't fall directly on our wedding weekend (it's right after we arrive), I think we will just have a private dinner with the two of them that evening and pick it up and then let the guys go out and be guys afterward:)

We are having the same problem but with anniversaries.  We have a few friends who will be celebrating their wedding anniversaries while we are away.  And one of them is their one year anniversary!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
