If she’d be embarassed by having her own small cake and a singing of Happy Birthday, then consider making a toast to her, early in the toasting rounds. Then plan something totally apart from the wedding— a get-together in a city somewhere in the middle of where you both live. Have a proper girls’ night (which can mean anything from a good spa pampering to a whoo-hoo night on the town), just the two of you.

I think that’s such a great idea! I think a toast in her honor would be great, happy birthday would be great or any get-together!

@Miss Orchard:  This!  I just went to a wedding where the bride toasted to the birthday girl, then we all sang happy birthday and a cupcake with a candle was brought out.  It was super sweet and you could tell the birthday girl was surprised and thankful.  🙂

I immediately thought a toast to her as well.

Also, you could give her a present. =)

I think a toast, celebrating her bday another weekend, taking her out to brunch or breakfast, having a small caupcake/cake for her while getting ready.

My wedding date is actually my FI’s and BM’s Bday! I was kinda worried and freaked at first. Now I have decided I am going to do a cake and a toast for her and all of her awesomeness at the Rehearsal Dinner. I don’t think she will like it if it were at the wedding and in front of everyone, I def wanted to do something to recognize her and let her know how much I appreciate her.


Good Luck! Keep us posted on what you decide!

That is so nice of you! If I were your Maid/Matron of Honor, I think something nice and small like a toast or a at the wedding would be wonderful. Then offer to do something special on another weekend…take her to dinner and REALLY celebrate 🙂 If you do too much at the wedding, she might feel guilty that she’s taking away from ‘your day’ (at least, I would) so a small acknowledgement on the actual day is best imo.
