I’m Maid/Matron of Honor in my sisters wedding tomorrow. I just saw on FB that it’s my moms neighbor/ friends bday tomorrow. her husbabd and Her are letting out my moms dogs before they come to the wedding. I’d love to acknowledge Her bday somehow…. anyone go through anything similar or have tips?

I think if we you just wish her a happy birthday that should be enough. I’m not really sure what you’re wanting to do.

Agree with PP, I would just wish her a happy birthday. I wouldn’t make it a deal at your sisters wedding, plus most adults don’t care about their birthdays much.

We got married on a good friend’s birthday. I had the caterer put a candle in his dessert. That’s it. No singing or anything, but it was a simple way to acknoledge without a big deal

My brother-in-law’s best friend/best man’s 5-year wedding anniversary was the same day as his and my sister’s wedding reception. They played their first-dance song for them. His wife was bawling and they both loved it. That said, they knew they’d like having the spotlight on them a bit. Would your mom’s friend like that? If not or you don’t know, I would just say something privately. I like what Glasgowbound did for her friend.

who is giving the welcome speech, can they just mention a special shout out to those celebrating birthdays.

If you were the bride, acknowledging her bday at the wedding (like Glasgowbound:
mentioned) would be really nice. That said, since it’s your sister’s wedding and you’re not hosting in any way, it may be a little odd to do anything other than simply telling her ‘happy birthday’ at the wedding itself. If you really think something more should be done, you should talk with your sister about it and leave it up to her.

Ask your sister if its okay first. I dont see anything in your post that says you did. 🙂

You can tell her happy birthday yourself. However it’s not your wedding, so not your place to do anything at the event.

It’s your sister’s wedding, not yours, so it’s really her choice on if she wants to make a formal acknowledgment (assuming the guest even wants that— which many don’t!). Have you asked her what she thinks?

I was at a wedding once and they had a small little cake (that you can get at a grocery store, just one of the little rounds, I think they’re less than $5-$10) and they set it up for her with a candle at her table. It’s definitely not necessary but I thought it was a very nice touch, but obviously check with your sister first.

I would also be concerned that it could be another guests birthday as well, that you don’t know about. If you make a big deal about one birthday and miss others, it’s a bit off-putting.

Agreed with PPs that it should be the bride and grooms choice.
My brother-in-law’s best man’s birthday was the day they got married, and they had a little cupcake for him. I don’t think we sang happy birthday. They just gave it to him privately and I don’t think he minded.
