I don’t think anyone will think you are crazy. We are getting married 9 days after my birthday and 9 days before his birthday. We have already decided that after we get married, we are going to do something big to celebrate them all at the same time.

We got married 13 days before DH’s birthday.  I don’t think anybody thought anything of it… 

Maybe in the future he might feel like he get a bit overshadowed, but it wasn’t an issue at all.

In My Humble Opinion, I think you should do it the six days before. That way the anniversary can be a special couples thing and then if you want a big birthday celebration, it won’t be on top of your anniversary. 🙂

This is a funny topic to me. My mom got married eight days before her bday and always told me not to do that because it’s just too much at once. Things get overshadowed, ya know? And my father reiterated it when my Fiance and I started planning. But then somehow without even thinking about it, he and I picked the date exactly seven days after my birthday.

At least I’ll always remember when our anniversary is! (Which I’m horrible about 🙂

The thing with my mom’s bday/anniversary is that it always fell on the beginning of the school year so with kids, there’s barely any time for the parents to celebrate fun stuff. Luckily I won’t have that issue unless they move the school year back!

I have a friend who got married on her 25th birthday. She said it was especially meaninful to do it that way. All her friends and family were there to celbrate both occasions.

I want to get married eight days before my FI’s birthday but he doesn’t want to because he’s afraid he’ll get cheated out of having seperate celebrations and gifts.  I wouldn’t mind being married that close to my birthday and I never imagined he would have problem with it.  I guess it just varies whether people think it’s okay or not.  If you don’t mind, don’t worry about what other people think.  They’re your special days, not anyone elses.

Although it could be kind of neat to have a birthday themed rehearsal dinner too!

I’m getting married 3 days after my birthday. It just works out that way sometimes.

I probably want to talk ahead of time about seperately celebrating the two occassions. Becuz its really easy to squish everything into one generic celebration.(The same thing always happens to kids born around christmas). I’d recommend talking about it before hand if you want to avoid yearly combined celebrations.

I don’t think it is anything to worry about but if I had the ability to avoid birthdays, I would.  My birthday in in April, DH’s is in May and our wedding was in July so I’d say we did pretty well.

I just like the break up and spread out celebrations.  I’m glad I wasn’t born near X-mas and Thanksgiving (and hope any future kids aren’t either).  But that’s just me!

Between your to options, I’d go with the week before.  That way in the future your birthday and anniversary still have a little bit of their own special timing.
