One of my friends (A lady I used to work with) will be having her birthday the day of our wedding. She’s already made it clear she’ll be there for us. She’s such a sweet lady and has been a good friend to me so I was thinking of having the caterers bring out a cupcake with a candle in it for her and have the dj announce it’s her birthday so we could sing to her.
What do you think? Will people think this is strange? I just want to recognize her for being such a good friend to me and my fiance.

As long as you think you will appreciate it (and not be mortified) then by all means. Just make sure you aren’t missing other people’s bdays. I know its impossible to know every guest’s personal details but just consider potential hurt feelings if you inadventantly overlook someone. PS. I think this is my 1000th POST HOLLA!
EDIT: Dammit, it was my 1001. I forgot a post!

I don’t think there is anything wrong with it unless she is shy!

@heather25: Good point! Lol that would suck. And with my luck it would be someone I don’t like or someone who thinks I don’t like them who got left out! haha.
Congrats on your post count!!!

It’s happening to us, too! However, our birthday guest would HATE being the center of attention during a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday. I love the cupcake idea, though : )
Whatever you decide will be all good as long as the guest is comfortable and happy…you could always bring the cupcake over to her yourself and wish her happy birthday one-on-one!

@kate169: HAHA of course! In that case, I would bring a cupcake over to her and say Happy Birthday kinda low key. That way she feels appreciated but only her table knows.

One of my BM’s bday is on our wedding. She has been my best friend since the age of 3, and I def checked with her before picking the date. I am going to make a thank you speech, and at the end thank her for sharing her bday with our wedding and have a toast and mini cake for her.
I love that someone else is doing something similar! I know she will love the attention and feel comfortable with it.

DH’s cousin’s birthday was the day before our wedding. They played the Mexican verison of Happy Birthday & sang to him, but we certainly didn’t bust out any special cupcakes or anything.

It was Mr. Husky’s father’s b-day, and we had an extra cake that said happy birthday, and a little sign that said somthing like “FIL Husky was kind enough to share his birthday with us – please have a slice of cake in his honor.” I think it’s a great idea to honor it!

We’re getting married on my Grandma’s birthday and we were thinking of doing the same. I think it’s a nice gesture to show you’re not letting your “big day” be all about you.
