These wedding wishes are a perfect addition to any message! “May your love be modern enough to survive the times but old-fashioned.

When it comes to writing the perfect wedding day wishes, how do you make your message stand out?

There’s nothing worse than finding the perfect card only to hover over it with a pen struggling to think of an appropriate message. And while we’re often flooded with inspiration during our commute or when we’re in the shower, it’s often the way that when it comes down to it, we just can’t find the words. Cue major frustration.

To help you out, we thought we’d cover every message you could possibly need to write in a wedding card, whether it’s for your best friend, a family member or just an acquaintance. Depending on the couple, you may want to stick to religious or traditional wording, a sentimental or a fun message, so we’ve got all that covered. All you need to do is skim through the list until you find the right message for you – you are more than welcome.

If you’re going to a wedding or two this summer, chances are that as well as the perfect guest outfit, you’ve already found the perfect greeting card to congratulate the couple. But we know you’ve got enough on your plate ticking off items on your wedding checklist to spend ages agonising over what to write.

So, grab your carefully chosen card and a pen, you’re going to want to jot down your favourite message!

Religious wedding wishes

  • May God shower your new lives together with many blessings.
  • Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! -1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Wedding Verse
by Linda Harrison
The time has come to stand side by side
The Groom in his glory, his beautiful Bride.
They've waited so long for this moment in time
To take their vows and say, "Will you be mine?"

Marriage is precious and to be treasured.
The love that you have can never be measured.
It joins you as one, not just with a ring,
But a future together and what it will bring.

Keep the love alive and make it last.
Remember the good times don't live in the past.
The bond that you have shows the world that you care,
Not just for yourselves, but for the family you share.

Who knows what the future may hold.
Stay strong together until you grow old.
Be there for each other, keep good memories alive.
With love and respect you will always survive.

Today is your day to cherish forever,
Never forget what brought you together.
This special time is just for you,
A time to remember when you've said "I do."

A passage from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin
by Louis de Bernières
Love is a temporary madness,
it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
And when it subsides you have to make a decision.
You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together
that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.

Because this is what love is.

Love is not breathlessness,
it is not excitement,
it is not the promulgation of eternal passion.

That is just being “in love” which any fool can do.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away,
and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground,
and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches,
they find that they are one tree and not two.

Wedding Wishes: Examples of What to Write in a Wedding Card

modern wedding wishes

We know why you’re here. It’s really difficult to decide what to write in a wedding card. Either way, we have examples of wedding wishes for every scenario!

Depending on how you know the engaged couple there are a few DOs and DON’Ts that you’ll want to be aware of, and plenty of wedding message examples to help you fine-tune your wedding congratulations.

Scroll through our guide of wedding wishes or quickly jump to a favorite section of wedding congratulations messages:

Traditional Wedding Message Examples

A highly traditional wedding card should avoid the word “congratulations”. It’s not as common now, but this word used to be viewed as a backhanded compliment meaning ‘We’re surprised you actually found someone’ directed at the bride.

Instead, keep your wedding messages super positive and relatively short. As a rule of thumb, use wedding sentiments that reinforce strength and longevity.

  • “May the love and happiness you feel today shine through the years.”

  • “Your wedding day will come and go, but may your love forever grow.”

  • “May the love you share today grow stronger as you grow old together.”

  • “Thank you for letting me share in this joyful day. I wish you all the best as you embark on this wonderful union.”

  • “Wishing you joy, love and happiness on your wedding day as you begin your new life together.”

  • “May the years ahead be filled with lasting joy.”

  • “Best wishes on this wonderful journey, as you build your new lives together.”

  • “May the years ahead be filled with lasting joy.”

  • “Best wishes on this wonderful journey, as you build your new lives together.”

  • “Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness.”

Formal Wedding Congratulations

Anyone who believes the adage “actions speak louder than words” should strongly consider including a gift with their kind wishes. A bridal subscription – our favorite is the Miss To Mrs Bridal Box – delivers some much needed wedding planning tools, beauty items, and adorable bridal gifts.

It has subscription options which range from accelerated to standard, extended to quarterly, and then the tailored plans. This ensures that whether the wedding is 3 months away or for the year 2020 — there’s an option just perfect for her!

You can never send a gift too early!

GIVE AS GIFT

You can share special memories and thoughts to make your wedding message more meaningful. Below are some marriage wishes examples of what to put on your formal wedding cards.

  • “Wishing you the best!”

  • “We are so very happy for you both!”

  • “Wishing you the best today, tomorrow and forever!”

  • “Hoping all your dreams are fulfilled in your new life together!”

  • “So thankful I got to share this day with you both!”

  • “As time passes may your love only grow beyond measure!”

  • “May all your dreams come true in your adventure together!”

  • “Nurture and care for your love from this day forward. It will then grow into the most beautiful thing you’ve ever known!”

  • “Thankful I was allowed to share this monumental day with you both!”

  • “May all your dreams come true in your life together!”

Funny Wedding Congratulations Messages

Sometimes funny is the best way to spread your happy wedding congratulations. Maybe it’s a friend or coworker that you joke around with on a regular basis, or maybe you’re just commonly known as the funny one and a humorous wedding message is expected. If this sounds like you a few jokes are highly recommended.

But, NEVER joke about past relationships, shock at them having found someone to marry or divorce.

  • “As Bill and Ted said, ‘Be excellent to each other.'”

  • “Thanks for inviting us to eat and drink while you get married. Congrats!”

  • “Wishing you lots of love—and lots of makeup sex!”

    (If this is appropriate given your relationship with the couple.)

  • “Our marriage advice: Love, honor and… scrub the toilet.”

    (Or fill in any other funny advice you have.)

  • “Marriage: A relationship where one person is always right, and one person is the husband. Congratulations!”

  • “Treat marriage like a hockey game. No roughing!”

  • “Thanks for the free booze. Best wishes on a long, happy marriage!”

  • “This calls for congratulations, and probably champagne.”
