Belated is the simple past tense. Moreover, later in relation to the proper time, something should have happened. You are late to congratulate someone’s birthday, you have forgotten or you just didn’t think about it? No problem. Here are some wishes:
I’m very sorry for forgetting your special day, so please accept this belated birthday wish in the spirit it is given. Hope your birthday was incredible…just like you.
Happy belated birthday to someone who deserved ‘on-time’.
You are lucky that I forgot your birthday because now you will get two gifts. One for your birthday and one to make you feel better. Happy belated birthday.
I’m sending you this message late, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t care about you. Belated Happy birthday.
Even though this message comes to you a little late, the wish it brings for happiness is good on any day date. Belated Happy birthday!
Two, four, six, eight. Sorry that this birthday cheer is late! Happy Birthday!
Because I forgot your birthday, to your hurt and my regret there is no end. Maybe this is life’s way of showing how much we mean to each other as friends. Happy belated birthday.
I am sorry I missed your birthday, you have had so many I lost track.
