My Groom and I will be getting married on his birthday! I know, “so much in one day”…”what happens if things don’t work out, his b-day will be ruined FOREVER”…Or, “his birthday will never be about celebrating “his” day anymore”. All of these thoughts crossed our minds too but we will be going on engaged for 2 years and with our work schedules (I’m a teacher) we decided we didn’t wanna wait ANY longer! This was a good time for everyone. It is no longer kinda weird to us, but I am trying to come up with something special for him to possibly take place at the reception. All I can think of is cake and sing “Happy Birthday” but there will already be 2 cakes (wedding and grooms). I need suggestions please! For his gift, I am booking a fishing trip (he LOVES fishing) for us to do while we are honeymooning in Mexico.
I have tried to look up ideas on the web but no luck! Although I did come across this posting about old wedding superstitions:
~ In Victorian times, it was believed lucky to marry, during the groom’s birthday week, and the luckiest day to marry, was on the groom’s actual birthday. (Perhaps so he would always remember his Anniversary?)
WEDDING BEE LADIES, I NEED YOUR HELP!

Don’t worry about him not getting his own day. You could always celebrate them on different days if that helps? Darling Husband & I agree that the actual birth day is not that important, its what you do for the birthday that matters.
Are you wanting ideas on how to make his bday a little more special for future years? Or what to do at the wedding to celebrate it?

I was looking for ideas on what to do at the wedding reception. But, Im starting to think maybe surprise him with a cake at the rehersal dinner (a day before his birthday) would be better instead of doing anything for his birthday at the reception. The rehersal dinner will include his closest relatives and friends. Any other ideas/concerns/input in appreciated!

I would honor his birthday in my speech; if you don’t want to do another cake, maybe just go to a specialty cupcake maker and find the nicest one. If your venue will allow candles or sparklers maybe hand out a few to different people in the family/party and have everyone sing happy birthday after you give your speech and recognize his birthday.

Oh my goodness I am so glad someone asked this. My fiances birthday is the day before our wedding and I was so worried he was going to feel forgotten!! I love the idea of the cake at the rehearsal dinner. I was going to add the private dinner and massage package to our honeymoon as a gift to him also.
