You could make it a big day for him as well.  Instead of having a Groom’s Cake, why not give him a Birthday Cake where everybody at the wedding would sing happy birthday and he gets to blow out the candles – I’m sure he’d love it!  Also I wouldn’t stress so much about only 6 days difference between the dates.  If you ever decide to go away for your anniversary you could go a week before ad return a couple of days AFTER your anniversary and then you have plenty of time free to help your son celebrate his special day.

I think as long as you make it special for him (like the birthday cake) you’re fine!  I also think its really important to make sure he gets a separate celabration later (like on his actual birthday).  My birthday is a week before christmas and my parents did an amazing job of separating it from Christmas so I felt special.   I think tahts super important as you go on in your futre.

I dont think it will be a long term problem as my best friend was born on her parent’s anniversary and they have always worked around it.   I also have friends that got married the day between their birthdays and so treat it as a whole week of celebrations.  As he gets older you could come up with a cute name to call the week… like Family Party Week or something

Is your son’s birthday the week before or after? As in, will you be on honeymoon for his birthday?!

Honestly i think it would be fine to celebrate his brithday another day anyway.. if he’s two i’m sure he’ll just be excited that its come around!!

You just make both days special. We have ours colse together and it hasn’t ever been any problem. You need to let that go just make his birthday special every year and it will be fine. It eeally is no big deal, your over worrying! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think you’re over worrying this a bit. My nephews’ birthdays were almost always celebrated on weekends, when more family and friends could be there, with a cupcake or small cake on the actual day. And if you want to do a trip for a future anniversary, you could do the weekend before, for example.
