Compose a Message to the Bride and Groom

Whether your are attending a wedding in person or not able to go, you should bring a card or send one to the couple. If you sent a gift, you can still bring a card to the wedding and put it on the gifts table at the event. If you aren't planning on attending, you should still send a heartfelt gift message for a wedding in a letter to the couple expressing your words of congratulations to them.

As you compose your message, keep the following tips in mind when planning what to say when someone gets married:

  • A poem or quotation on love and marriage can be a good way to begin or end a letter.
  • Lighthearted humor may be appropriate, depending on your relationship.
  • Speak about your personal thoughts or advice on love and how it applies to the couple.
  • Write down future hopes for the couple and their happiness.
  • Make a sincere apology for not attending the wedding.
  • Propose getting together to view photographs and talk about the wedding after the honeymoon.

Keep the mailing date in mind when you are sending the letter. If you send it before the wedding, you can mention how you are happy to help with any preparations before the blessed event. If you are mailing the letter after the wedding, you could write a short note about how everyone raved about the bride's dress, wedding cake or other aspect of the wedding.

When to Send a Congratulatory Letter

If you know you cannot attend the wedding, you should send your letter as soon as you possibly can. In cases of an emergency situation, you will want to send your message of congratulations as close to the actual wedding date as possible. Of course, if you are attending the wedding, just bring the letter along with you and place it in the card basket if it will not be attached to a gift.
