I hope your big day was all that you hoped for.

Wishing you all the best – just a little late.

I may have forgotten your birthday, but I didn’t forget about you!

2, 4, 6, 8, sorry that this birthday cheer is late!

My best wishes to you, even though are belated.

Even though this message comes to you a little late, the wish it brings for happiness is good on any day date. Happy belated birthday.

Forgetting a Birthday doesn’t mean you forget a person. And remembering a Birthday doesn’t mean you remember the person. Here’s a genuine Belated Happy Birthday wish from me.

I am sorry, I missed your birthday. But all my best to you.

Sorry I forgot your Birthday. I hope you had a grand and special celebration with your loved ones and friends.

It’s apparent that you have been blessed with many things on your birthday. Unfortunately, a punctual birthday card from me, was not one of those things

That trip around the sun was just faster than I expected and so I am a bit late in saying “Happy Birthday!”

Have a Party

You are not just one more year older but one more year wiser!

I missed wishing you on the big day and I missed out on the celebrations too! Let’s celebrate again and raise a toast to the Birthday of a fantastic individual and a genuine human being.

You live life in the fast lane but I move a little slower. That is why I am a little behind you on celebrating your birthday.

I wanted to be the first one to wish you, but I couldn’t! I deeply regret that! Hope you had one of the best birthdays this year. Belated Happy Birthday to a very special person. May God bless you!

I like to celebrate your birth-month instead of your birthday. It is still your birth-month isn’t it?

My best wishes to you, even though are belated.

Double kisses and double hugs are your bonus gift to make up for being late to wish you the best.

Happy Belated Birthday. When things get busy, time slips by, but birthdays never wait. So finally when we send our greetings, they may be just a little late. But when it is someone so special that we like a lot, our thoughts are always on time, it is just our greeting that is not.

Sorry I missed your birthday. I swear that this only happens to me like once a year.

Funny Wishes (and late)

Happy belated birthday to someone who now has free reign to forget mine.

How do you expect me to remember your birthday, when you never look any older?

Knowing how much fun you can be, I assume that the party is still going and that I am not late for your birthday. Keep on having fun.

A late birthday card is a lot like a bill from the doctor. Both tell you that you are getting older and both are a big surprise.

Fashionably late. Hope it was great.

I hear you’re celebrating a belated birthday,but all the other fools sent them on time!

Don’t hate me because I forgot your birthday. Hate me because I’m beautiful.

I wanted to give you your birthday card late so that you would have enough time to grieve the loss of your youth.

Wishing you a happy birthday late

I truly regret not eating cake on your birthday so I plan to eat 2 desserts today to make up for it.

Birthday cards are like a group of high school P.E. class students running on a track. There are always some stragglers, and I’m the fat kid who smokes.

I may have forgotten your birthday, but at least I remember that I forgot your birthday.

Time seems to speed up the older you get, so at your age, I figured you wouldn’t even notice the time that went between your birthday and getting your card.

I can be wrong, I can be crazy, but I can’t be too late in wishing you a happy birthday.

My forgetting to give you your birthday card on time is proof that you are growing up way too fast.

I am late wishing you a Happy Birthday because I was worried that you would still be in your birthday suit.

I know you must be bugged because I missed your birthday. But I didn’t really forget it. I just didn’t want to remind you that you are growing old! Belated Happy Birthday anyway. I’m sure you had a blast!

I could have sent you a birthday greeting on your birthday and I could have started Google, but I didn’t. You are happy with Google so why not be happy with me being a little tardy in saying Happy Birthday!

Ran out of time birthday wishes

I cannot describe what you mean to me. You are the most beautiful and the most talented person on earth. Hope that makes you forgive me or else I can still do better. Just kidding, Belated Happy Bday.

Good thing you are getting more patient the older you get. Happy belated birthday

Houston, we have a problem. I spaced out and forgot your birthday. Was it out of this world?

It took me so long to write in your birthday card that I now have the perfect thing to say… Sorry I’m late, and happy belated birthday.

I thought that you wouldn’t celebrate your birthday after you turned 29. I guess I counted wrong and you are 29 this year. Sorry I am late. Happy Birthday.

My dog ate your birthday card, that is why this Happy Birthday wish is a little late.

I would tell you the super-secret reason that I am late wishing you a Happy Birthday, but it is classified information and is available only on A NEED TO KNOW basis.

Where does the time go? Another year passed before I could get your birthday greeting out.

— Mike O’Halloran

Mike is the founder and editor of Greeting Card Poet. And, while he’s had far too many birthdays than he’d like to admit, the celebrations continue to get better with each passing year.

Whether you’re throwing a birthday party, a cocktail party or planning a dinner at the honoree’s favorite restaurant, it’s tradition to give the guest of honor a Happy Birthday card. As if picking out a card wasn’t tough enough, on top of that you’ll need to craft a happy birthday message too.

When you sit down with a blank greeting card in front of you, don’t be surprised if you can’t seem to put the pen to paper. Many of us get a case of writers block when we sit down to write a birthday card greeting, especially to the people we love the most. Sure, the birthday honoree knows just how much you love and appreciate him or her but, it doesn’t hurt to remind them on their day.

The following birthday quotes will make for the nicest addition to your birthday cards for family and friends. Jump to any relevant section below:

Funny Birthday Messages - About Age

Happy Birthday! Don't forget to iron that birthday suit.

You're [insert age]? Better take that cake outdoors to light the candles! Have a very happy birthday.

[insert age] is a perfect age. You're old enough to recognize your mistakes but young enough to make some more. Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday! I'm so pleased to hear you're over the hill instead of under it.

Happy Birthday. It took you [insert age] years to look this good!

I wouldn't say you're old... you've just been young for longer than most of us. Happy Birthday!

You're not getting older... just more distinguished! Happy Birthday.

By the time you're [insert age] you've learned everything - you only have to remember it! Many happy returns on your birthday.

YOU SUCK!
...at aging. Can you at least try to look older?


Funny birthday one-liners

Don't let aging get you down. It's too hard to get up again!

You are so old, you walked into an antique shop and they sold you.

You know you're getting old when you can't walk past a bathroom without thinking, "I may as well pee while I'm here."

You know you're old when you turn down the lights to be economical instead of romantic.

Q: What goes up and never comes down?
A: Your age!

You know you're getting older when an "all-nighter" means not getting up to pee.


Middle Age Birthday Wishes

Middle age: that time when you finally get your head together - then your body starts falling apart.

Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.

Middle age... when "happy hour" is a nap!

Night sweats and hot flashes are nature's way of lowering your heating bill so you can save more money for your retirement.

How do you know you've hit middle-age? In preparation for a big sneeze you cross your legs really hard and hope for the best!


Funny birthday messages about gray hair

Those aren't gray hairs you see. They're strands of birthday glitter growing out of your head.

A little gray hair is a small price to pay for so much wisdom.

You know you're getting old when the little old gray-haired lady you helped across the street is your wife.

Don't worry, they are not gray hairs, they are wisdom highlights. You just happen to be extremely wise.

If gray hair is a sign of wisdom, then you're a genius!


More Funny Birthday Messages

A wise man once said, "Forget about your past, you cannot change it". I'd like to add: "Forget about your present, I didn't get you one".

I spent 3 hours searching the internet for the perfect birthday message for you and then I gave up. Happy Birthday.

I wanted to get you something truly amazing and inspiring for your birthday and then I remembered that you already have me.
