Congratulations to you for stepping into a new life, where Wishing both bride and the groom a delightful journey.
For parents, their children’s wedding is an important thing, or rather an emotional moment for the life. Parents have spent so many years in framing their daughter’s dream and finally, when it comes, they are just more than happy. Send a congratulation wishes message to make the moment memorable for a parent. The words of the message talk about the parenthood and the joy of this special occasion. Present your emotion through a beautiful text of love.
Here a list of wedding congratulation message samples to parents of bride:
1). Today, your daughter would be proud of you; you leave no corner to make her all dream true. The moment is expensive for you, so capture all the emotion in your mind forever. I wish you congratulation for your daughter’s wedding.
2). It is true, somewhere in your heart, you feel sad, but the feeling is new as you may not know whether to smile or to tear; don’t be sad to think your daughter goes away from you, rather smile as you get a new son from now on. Congratulation.
3). Time has come to give the responsibility of your daughter to one; the partner who keeps her happy and smiling always. Give your wishes to your daughter that the life ahead for her will be loving and caring.
4). It is an expensive moment for you that you have cherished for so long, your daughter is going to tie the knot with the person she loves the most; enjoy the moment and enjoy the emotions. Congratulation.
5). I wish the life ahead for your daughter would be happy and they make a perfect couple like you both; in joy and tear, you are always together and I wish the new couple follows your footstep. Congratulation.
6). To the parents of the bride, I send my heartfelt wishes for the wedding ceremony and hope it goes all well. I send gifts for the bride and the bridegroom and hope you will give them.
7). Dear parents of the bride, sending my good wishes for the wedding. You both would work well to pull off a grand marriage of your daughter and I wish all the luck.
8). This text carries my love and best wishes for the parents of the bride. I hope the wedding goes all well with your tiring effort and the married couple lives in joy forever.
9). Sending all the best for the parents of the bride as they marry off their beautiful daughter. It would be hard to let your sweetheart go and I send gifts for the ceremony.
10). Loving wishes for the parents of the bride with gifts for the wedding couple. I thank you for inviting me to wedding and congratulate on the beautiful wedding ceremony you conducted.
Always, always extend your best wishes to a bride, but feel free to say congratulations to the groom. We think Miss Etiquette sums it all up in her.
We've been there: You shop long and hard to find the perfect wedding card for the soon-to-be married couple and then you get home and have a pretty rough time figuring out what to write in it. The good news is, there are no hard-and-fast rules about what to write in a wedding card. As long as your wedding congratulations message is heartfelt and offers the couple a positive wish for their marriage, you're good to go.
It should almost go without saying that wedding cards are customary for anyone who wants to send wedding wishes to an engaged or newly married couple. If you're following traditional wedding guest etiquette, you'll either want to bring the card to the wedding reception or mail it directly to the couple (usually between the time you receive the wedding invitation and a few weeks after the wedding). Honestly though, you can send it whenever you want. You could even send a nice card if the wedding is small and you're not invited. Simply put: Wedding congratulations are welcome anytime by anyone!
As for the card itself, wedding cards come in lots of different formats—from standard greeting cards you find at a cute stationery shop to homemade cards, small tags attached to gifts and even simple, digitally created wedding messages that are printed and shipped to the couple with their gift. All of the above pass as a wedding card and are considered okay, so don't feel the need to have more than one. (Then again, if you bought a gift off the couple's registry and want them to also have a pretty card from you, take one to the reception and drop it in a wedding card box or on a gift table!)
In short, yes. That said, it used to be saying or writing "congratulations" to a newly married woman was once considered a faux pas because it was thought of as congratulating her on actually landing a man! (Yep, you read that right.) Today though, that's considered an outdated rule and school of thought. Still, if the couple happens to be very traditional or come from a very traditional family, you might want to avoid the term altogether and just say "best wishes."
The perfect wedding wish is sentimental, sweet and totally tailored to the couple. Is it for your favorite cousin and his new wife? Or your hilarious college roommate who finally settled down? Below are dozens of examples of wedding wishes quotes for inspiration. Use the quick links below to craft an amazing (genius!) wedding message:
Just because it's a formal wedding with floor-length dresses and tuxes doesn't mean you have to send a formal card with stuffy wording. (The card doesn't have to perfectly match the event.) Still, if you want to write a nice message that's timeless and romantic, a formal note is the way to go.
If you don't feel comfortable with formal wedding sayings, then don't do it. Be yourself. It's completely fine to write a more casual wedding message in the card, no matter the recipient. Put it this way: Short and sweet is always fine, as long as you're saying something nice or including a wish for the couple's future.
Go ahead and write something funny in the card that you think will make them laugh. Just be careful with your marriage wishes. What might easily come across as a joke in conversation could be taken the wrong way on paper. As a rule of thumb, avoid jokes that are sarcastic or snarky. Also off-limits? Steer clear of anything that could be considered insulting, imply that one of them is the "better half" or mention anything about it having taken way too long (or way too little time) to get married. Oh, and no divorce jokes!
If the couple is religious, then this might be the best option. Religious wedding card messages can mention God, tell them of your prayers or quote scripture. Before writing a religious message in a wedding card, consider 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 it's be best to tone down religious elements or avoid them altogether. And if you're unsure of what religious message to write, opt for more general wedding words instead.
When writing a wedding card for family, you can go very general or very personal—it's completely up to you and the type of message you want to convey.
So you're writing a message on your brother's or sister's wedding card? The key here is personality. In some cases, sibling relationships are strained, in which case you might want to go general. But more often, your brother or sister is the person whom you know best, to whom you can make inside jokes or recall some of your favorite moments together. Just remember to mention the new spouse in your note!
It's a big deal when your son or daughter marries. And when you're the mother or father of the bride or groom, you'll most likely feel a flurry of emotions that are extra tricky to get down on paper. What's most important is that you wish the couple well. From there, add in some personal touches to the otherwise standard wedding wishes quote to give your wedding card message meaning. If you're happily married, you could even add some of your own marriage advice.
It's just as good of a choice to go classic with wedding wording on a friend's wedding card as it is to get specific and personal. Before you write, consider your relationship and how funny, serious, personal or sentimental you want to get with your wedding wishes. Then go from there.
When writing a card to your coworker who's getting married, you're probably not going to want to wish them "lots of love." Instead, it's best to go with general wording. Use one of the formal or casual examples above, or see below for a few appropriate, work-inspired quotes. All that said, it's more than possible that your coworker is a good friend. If that's the case, scroll up to "Wedding Card Wishes for a Friend."
Whether you're thrilled or lukewarm about the union, if your mom or dad is getting married (or remarried), it's completely normal to agonize a little over the right wedding card wording. Our best piece of advice? Be honest and tell the truth. Don't say you're crazy about the new husband or wife if you're not, but instead wish them both a happy future together. After all, isn't that what you want for your parent?
Congratulations to a wonderful couple. You two really stand out in a crowd!
Together you are stronger, together you are one! As you wed today, may your feelings and emotions for each other only grow deep and strong with time.
As the two of you unite today as husband and wife in love and in friendship, may the Lord look upon you kindly.
Greeting to the handsome couple. Always know deep down that you're each other's best friend!
Look at you both, such a beautiful pair
From this wedding day on, your lives you share,
Live, love, laugh and be forever true
From the minute you swear to each other: "I do."
As you start this new journey in life, may you will always grow together and never grow apart.
For the music is the sound
Of the love of a man and his wife,
I know that the dance will be found
To the beautiful rhythm of life!
A happy marriage is like a long involving conversation that always seems too short. Best wishes for the future!
Happy Wedding! Wishing the groom always remember the golden rule - "Happy wife, happy life"!
Congratulations to a beautiful bride and a groom. All the best to you and your new family at this special time and always!

Etiquette mavens can finally breath a sigh of relief because we are about to set the record straight on an incredibly vexing issue to those of us who are a tad obsessed with social protocol. But first a quick quiz: Should you say “best wishes” or “congratulations” to a newly-engaged or just married bride?
Those of you who answered “best wishes,” you’re RIGHT! Always, always extend your best wishes to a bride, but feel free to say congratulations to the groom. We think Miss Etiquette sums it all up in her blog post devoted to this topic:
“Saying congratulations to a bride implies that she has won something – her groom. The groom is to be congratulated for getting the lady to accept his marriage proposal. To avoid controversy, many people just extend their best wishes to the bride and the groom!”
Have a fabulous day everyone and best wishes to all our brides out there! Remember, we love hearing from our readers so be sure to leave a comment or ask us a question!
