the only people that would be worried about thunder being stolen would be you and the mister….i think it is adorable and shows how much you care about the important people in your life (your guests).  simply lovely.

I think, as long as you guys – the bride and groom – proposed this idea and are okay with it then go with it!

I sang Happy Brithday to someone at a friend’s wedding. It was fun! I don’t think it steals thunder, it’s about sharing the day.

I think its nice of you to do this for your friend.  I wouldn’t do it, just because its the one day I can claim to be all mine (and my husbands, of course :)).  But I’m sure everyone will join in and enjoy it.  Shoot, I join in the happy birthday song when I’m at a restaurant and a stranger is getting sung to!

That sounds very sweet!  We had 1 guest with a birthday the day of our wedding and 5 guests with birthdays within 1-2 days.  We had the MC announce the birthdays (in general, not specific names in case there was a birthday we didn’t know about), thank them for being there with us and play Happy Birthday by the Beatles.  If you’re ok with it I don’t see how anyone else can complain about it stealing your thunder.  We had the announcement during dinner.  The only possible issue I see is if there is anyone else celebrating a birthday they might be disappointed being overlooked.

I think doing the b-day thing is sweet. I would however be really upset if someone proposed to someone at my wedding. YOU decideding to share the spotlight is fine, but SOMEONE else taking your spotlight (even if its not meant as a steal)  I’m not ok with…you seem to be taking it all in stride though so kuddos to you for being a less selfish person than me…lol

I think that’s a fab idea and definitely appropriate after the cake cutting.  It’s a perfect lead-in and I think it would flow well.  Kudos to you for celebrating your guest!!

I think that would be great of you guys! I wouldn’t be worried about it stealing your thunder. I would probably do the same thing.

This what we are doing too! One of my FI best friends is turning 30. We are putting balloons on his chair and a party hat at his place setting. We also plan to ask the DJ to start the birthday song as well 🙂

I think it is a great idea!! my cousin got married the day before my birthday and at midnight he pulled me on the dance floor (i hate dancing) and then him and his wife and everyone else that was still there sang me happy birthday!!! it was great that they remembered my birthday at the beginning of their new life and one of their biggest days… I say do it…. remember what they say IT’S YOUR DAY, do what you want!!!!

I personally think it’s not only a cute idea, but also very considerate of you!  If you and your hubby-to-be want to do it, then do it.  I don’t think anyone thinks about the bride and groom’s thunder being stolen except for the bride and groom.  Besides, weddings are not only about the couple, but also family and friends — so why not show yours you care?  I like it!

this is a great idea!  my cousin is going to turn 21 on our wedding day, and I hope to honor his birthday in some way, too.  if he shows up… you never know with 21 year old guys, but i wouldn’t be hurt if he didn’t attend.

Great idea! We had a small strawberry shortcake  for my Dad at the wedding last month and he was so surprised. He had a million cameras flashing at him,tho,but he loved it.

We actually did it before the cake cutting.
