I will be celebrating my 25th birthday this month but I have one regret, it is that I wish I chose to celebrate my 18th birthday in a traditional way such as having a cotillion, the 18 roses candles etc. How I wish I was able to experienced, though we can do that thing the fact that I am the only daughter but for some reasons that I need to considered during that time, I have no choice but not to do have that kind of party or celebration. But now I realized that I want to have that party. Actually, sometimes I am thinking to prepare a party like that on one my succeeding birthdays but for now... I am longing for that. How about you, do or did you wish to celebrate your 18th birthday in a traditional way?

I think you can still choose to celebrate your birthday the way you wish for it when you had eighteen years olds, I am nearly twenty four this year so I think it will be a simple birthday with families and future in-laws.

Why not celebrate your 25th birthday in a similar way? It is very often the same with people who decide on a low key wedding, then years later regret it. You could have a party and a cake with 25 candles on, make special invites making the point that this is your 18th just 8 years too late!! Have a great day anyway Happy Birthday

i am a guy so an 18th birthday is not celebrated like ladies. but in our life there is always regrets, it is impossible that we dont have any regrets, but this regrets can turn as to be strong and make sure that in the future we can make more good decision. you said that you were not able to experienced that because there are reasons that you need to consider and you dont have much of a choice, so i dont think you need to regret this, you are a good child for considering the reasons of your parents. now that you can afford you can still make a big celebration like you wanted. you can still celebrate your birthday the way you wanted it. are we invited? har har har
