Finding a funny or sentimental card for your newly engaged friend or family member is easy. Figuring out what to write in an engagement card can be much more challenging. Stress not! We've got you covered, from engagement etiquette to the perfect wording for offering engagement wishes to the happy couple.
Engagement Card Etiquette
Engagement cards are customary for anyone wanting to send their well wishes and congratulations to a newly engaged couple. You can send a card whenever you want, but make sure it's in the mail before the actual wedding. We recommend sending engagement wishes soon after the couple share their happy news.
An engagement card can be given with or without a gift. If you are invited to an engagement party in honor of the couple, let the invitation provide some guidance on which is appropriate. A congratulatory engagement card is perfect for a casual gathering of friends at your local bar (especially if you're chipping in for drinks). If you receive a formal engagement invite in the mail from the couple or a host, you probably shouldn't show up empty-handed. Find out if the couple have registered, or choose something for their home that they can both enjoy, like a picture frame or a bottle of champagne (psst, our engagement gift guide has tons of helpful suggestions for every kind of couple).
Whether you're attending a formal party or an intimate get-together, a thoughtful handwritten engagement card is a lovely gesture. Tailor your well wishes to the couple and your relationship with them. Is the card for a family member or a close friend? Opt for sentimental engagement wishes that share your excitement. If the couple are religious, consider including a Bible verse or a quote from the Torah. Engagement cards come in lots of formats, including standard greeting cards from your local stationery shop, homemade cards, small tags attached to gifts and even simple, digitally created engagement messages. There are many ways to personalize an engagement wish. Stuck on what to write in an engagement card? Read on for some ideas about how to write meaningful engagement wishes.
Funny Engagement Wishes
If sentimentality is not really your thing, a funny engagement wish is perfectly acceptable, as long as the joke is not too corny or inappropriate. Jokes that are sarcastic or snarky may be funny when told out loud, but can come across negatively on paper. Take our advice and steer clear of anything that could be considered insulting, like implying that one of them is the “better half" or mentioning anything about it having taken too long (or too little time) to make things official. And any jokes about divorce aren't jokes at all.
Dear Jane and John,
I'm so happy for you two on your engagement! I can't believe we're old enough to be getting engaged. What's next, getting pregnant on purpose? Congrats!
Engagement Wishes to a Friend
Sending an engagement card to a friend should feel genuine and come from the heart. You can go with classic engagement congratulations or say something more personal in the card if you are writing to one of your closest pals. Use your relationship to guide how personal or cheeky you want to get with your engagement wishes.
Dear Jane and John,
Congratulations on your engagement! I am so happy to call both of you my friends, and I can't wait to celebrate with you.
Engagement Wishes for a Brother or Sister
Are you a close-knit family? Make sure your personality comes through in your engagement card message. After all, your siblings know you best. Feel free to make inside jokes or recall some of your favorite moments together. If you're not best buds, typical engagement sayings will still be appreciated. And don't forget to mention the fiance in your note.
Dear Jane and John,
I am so happy for the two of you. Congratulations on your engagement! It seems like yesterday we were playing “house,“ and now you get to do it in real life.
All my love,
What to Write in an Engagement Card to a Son or Daughter

What to Write in an Engagement Card From a Bridesmaid or a Groomsman
If you are serving as a bridesmaid or groomsman at the couple's wedding, you're likely related or a close friend of the to-be-wed. Alongside the typical engagement wish quotes, include a bit of your history. Use an inside joke or an anecdote from when you formed your friendship, or thank the couple for including you in their wedding party.
Dear Jane and John,
I am so happy for the both of you on your engagement! I can't wait to watch you start your lives together—with a front-row seat, no less! Thank you for including me in your wedding day. I can't wait to celebrate.
What to Write in an Engagement Card for a Religious Couple
Religious engagement card messages can mention God, tell them of your prayers or quote scripture. Before writing a religious message in an engagement card, make sure you are aware of the couple's beliefs and practices, and customize the message to them. If they aren't too religious or don't worship regularly, something very religious could make them uncomfortable, so tone down the religious elements in the engagement card and focus on your relationship instead. And if you're unsure of what religious message to write, opt for more general wedding words.
Dear Jane and John,
Congratulations on your engagement! Sending you prayers for unending love and happiness and hoping that the love of God fills your hearts as you start your married life together.

As far as timing goes, make certain you have sent your engagement card well in advance of the wedding. Sounds obvious, but you would be surprised. Once you hear the happy news, sending a card and well wishes are fair game to celebrate this exciting step.

The engagement traditions that you encounter around the world can be very different than the ones found in the United States. Many countries take a different more subdued approach to the engagement process. The events leading up to the wedding can vary dramatically. Here are some engagement customs from around the world:
In Chile, both the man and woman wear engagement rings on their right hands. On their wedding day they remove the rings and transfer them over to the third finger on their left hands.
Instead of an “engagement ring,” Germans give a “promise ring.” The promise ring signifies a promise from the groom-to-be to the bride-to be that they will marry, and that they continue dating. It is a more casual approach than the one in the U.S. and the friendship ring is smaller and more subdued.
In Japan a “Yunio” (translated as engagement ceremony) must be performed before the couple is considered engaged. The families of the bride and groom meet and exchange traditional gifts. The gifts signal well wishes and a blessing for things like health, long life, prosperity, and good children.
One of many countries that practices arranged marriages, in China the bride-to-be is often showered with gifts by the groom-to be’s parents in an attempt to prove they are worthy of welcoming her into the family. There are many additional ancient traditions in China, some are still followed, others are not.
Thailand also has an engagement ceremony called a “Thong Mun,” (this translates from Thai to gold engagement). The groom gives numerous gold gifts to the bride-to-be including a gold engagement ring rather than a diamond one.
One of the interesting engagement traditions in India is that the father of the groom-to-be asks the father of the bride-to-be for his daughter’s hand in marriage. If the father of the future bride agrees, the two families enter into an elaborate contract that sets the date and plans for the wedding.
The tradition of asking the father of the bride’s permission to marry is alive and well in Greece. Once the father of the bride has given his approval the future bride and groom must attend counseling classes from a priest. Once the couple has completed the classes, there is a huge engagement party with family and friends.
You don’t necessarily have to send a gift with the card especially if there is going to be one or more wedding showers. If you are just meeting the engaged couple for drinks or dinner, a card is a very appropriate thing to give them at the bar or restaurant. Having a well thought out, hand-written, engagement card with your sincere congratulations is a thoughtful touch that will be remembered by the bride and groom. In this article, we’ll include ways to personalize your message and make it a little easier for you to come up with the proper message.
You’ve said your congratulations, sent an engagement card, and maybe even given the happy couple a gift, now what? Hopefully, you’ve picked out some messages and greetings from our Greeting Card Poet lists. You might consider inviting the happy couple out for a night on the town, dinner and drinks is always in good taste.
Talk it over with your friends and throw the soon-to-be newlyweds a party, maybe even consider a theme. A cocktail party, barbecue, surprise party, seafood boil, dinner party, or pool party are all good choices. Whatever you decide to do with your messages of congratulations, remember you will be helping create a lasting memory for two people that are madly in love.
