I wouldn’t, your wedding day is your wedding day. Do something special for each of them separate from your wedding. Or how about combine all of the birthdays into one so your wedding isn’t overshadowed by their bdays on your sepcial day. Keep it separate.

I would do something nice for Grandma – maybe just present her with your bouquet instead of tossing it – since 70 is a huge milestone.  I would do the cake & sing at your Rehearsal Dinner instead of during the wedding, though…  I wouldn’t bother with your niece or anyone else, they can celebrate on their own another day.

I think limiting to the two immediately closest to the weddin is just fine. Especially since its a milestone and a child, people will understand. I wouldnt expect to have my birthday acknowledged at a wedding just because it was in the same month.

I would like to know too! I’m getting married on my cousin’s birthday and would like to do something for her.

Why not do it at the rehearsal dinner, or the wedding brunch the next day (if you’re doing one) Then it’s not as big of a spotlight, but you’re still honoring those people.  

If anyone is doing gifts, this would also give them an opportunity for that.  This shares the moment, but doesn’t make the birthday people feel like they’re stealing the spotlight on your special day.

My stepbrother got married on his brother’s birthday. At the rehearsal dinner, they had a surprise birthday cake for him to try and make up for it. It was a thoughtful gesture.

It’s my dad’s birthday and also one of our guests around my age. I am putting a birthday girl sash at her seat with a special cupcake, letting her know, hey, celebrate your birthday too! For my dad one of the cupcake flavors will be his favorite and i am going to put a picture of me making him the same cake when i was like 6 (ok, helping make the cake!)with a little sign that says happy birthday on the dessert table.

I would definitely do something special for your grandma, whether that’s at the wedding or the rehearsal dinner. 70 is a big milestone and you are lucky to have your grandparents around! I think that’s very sweet of you and I’m sure that would make her happy!

I would only say happy birthday to your grandma and no signing.
