At least you have both of those things to celebrate together later!  I didn’t do anything for my 21st birthday (not a huge drinker anyway).  My birthday was 4 days after my wedding (22nd).

I had a giant midterm on my 21st, and one the day after. No drinking for me! Not everyone goes bar-crawling on their birthday. I do think a line about your first legal drink would be funny, as long as everyone knows you just turned 21!

haha! yeah, id wait till your reception! my 21st bday was the only time in my life i got black out drunk – had to be carried home, then at 9am in the morning had to be on a flight alone to Kentucky (from NY) on thanksgiving with the worst hangover ever!!!!

It was awesome though! haha.

i’m not a big drinker so 21 wasn’t huge for me (even though i went to vegas- i went with my parents and their friends and my sister). are you having a rd the day before your wedding? you can still have a glass of champange or something there, you don’t have to go crazy, but i think it would be nice to have a drink on your 21’st!

I turned 21 recently, and it was the first time I had more than one drink. The morning after was awful. I only had four drinks, but man, it was enough. It doesn’t have to be a big deal- enjoy your legal toast at the wedding, and then have an awesome honeymoon of ordering tons of drinks!! haha. maybe you can re-create it when you get home, with your girlfriends? put on a birthday tiara, etc? nobody else has to know its not your bday ๐Ÿ˜‰

I definitely wouldnt drink the night before your wedding!!! But, at the same time its really fun to get carded and be legal SO maybe you could go to the hotel bar the night before for one drink! Because at your reception theyre obviously not going to card you!

Well if you already drink you might as well get a few FEW drinks (have one of your bms make sure) that night ๐Ÿ™‚  if youre not used to alcohol then maybe put it off…even past the reception because you dont want to be trashed at your wedding.  tipsy, okay, but not gross lol.

If you want to go out and go to bars and stuff, put that on hold!

Bdays are overrated (just my opinion haha) and my 21st wasn’t great… not bad but nothing to rave about.

Definitely don’t go all out though! you’ll regret it if you are hungover!
