It only shows events on the calendar. So if your events (weddings, anniversaries etc..) are not on the calendar then it's not going to show up. Contact details do not show on the calendar. I wish it did though. The only free workaround that I found was in iCal on a Mac you can select "show birthdays" or other dates and they now are in the calendar. And since that is already synced with Google it pushes to my phone in a few minutes. There are probably apps that do it but I'm not sure. Definitely one of the things missing when it comes to productivity.

For holidays and other calendars you can go here and subscribe to them on your device:
iCal World - Calendar Hosting & Library
Just act as if you are adding a new email account but select "other" then "subscribed calendar". The put the address where the calendar is located and it will appear on your iPhone calendar. I have holiday calendar I am subscribed to and it's updated for each year.

If you have other calenders in your gmail account. Go to m.google.com/sync on your phone, log in, select your last sync. It should show a list of calendars that are in your gmail acct. select the ones you want. Then open the calendar app and they should be there shortly.
http://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect to modify sync settings, "US Holidays" and "Contacts' birthdays and events" are "Not available for syncing" (although all of my contact birthdays are syncing/showing up on my iPhone calendar . . .
