Could you pick up two cupcakes at a local bakery, and some candles?  Since your guests are eating wedding cake, you don’t really need a whole extra cake, and two cupcakes should be under $10.00. Cut the wedding cake, take the pics, and then while the cake is being sliced to pass out to guests, light the candles on the cupcakes and sing Happy Birthday to them.

my friend did this at their wedding…

They cut the cake early in the reception.  At the normal time that they were supposed to cut the cake, they have a waiter bring out a small cupcake (could be store bought) to one of the Groomsmen and sing happy birthday to him instead.  It was very sweet.

My friends had their Birthday guest wear a birthday crown while everyone sang Happy Birthday. It was adorable. You can make a paper crown and put glitter or plastic jewels on it really easily.

my sister’s birthday was the day after our wedding and she was one of the only guests who travelled a distance for our wedding. 

we acknowledged her birthday during speeches and sang happy birthday. i gave her her gift prior.

you could also have a cupcake and card (signed by guests) presented at this time.

My birthday (and my cousin’s birthday) were the day after my other cousin’s wedding.  They didn’t say anything at the reception, but the next morning they sang us Happy Birthday.  

I don’t think you have to do anything.  Maybe give them each a card.  They’re going to have a bunch of other birthdays in years to come; you will only have one wedding.
