WHITE COTTON CARDS To My Best Friend Congratulations Happy for You Engagement Cards Greeting Cards Newly Engaged Cards Yay He Put A Ring on .

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!

Best wishes,


  • Wishing you a lifetime of great sex...oh, and happiness and love—that stuff is important too. (Use only if this is appropriate given your relationship with the couple.)

  • I'm 90 percent happy for you and 10 percent jealous. 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.

Engagement Wishes for a Brother or Sister

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.

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.

Best wishes,



  • May God grant you all of life's blessings and love's joys.
  • “Love is patient. Love is kind….Love never fails." –1 Corinthians 13:4-13
  • “God bless you both on this day with a lifetime of shared love and joy."
  • “God has poured out His love into our hearts." –Romans 5:5


  • Mazel tov! May the joy that is yours today always fill your life.
  • “Ani l'dodi, v'dodi li." (I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine.) –Shir HaShirim/Song of Songs 6:3
  • Mazel tov and l'chaim! Best wishes on your engagement.


  • Mabrouk! (“Congratulations.")
  • Baarak-Allahu laka wa baaraka alaikuma wa jama'a bainakuma fee khairin. (“Let Allah bless you both with love and happiness and many cherished moments of a blissful married life.")

What to say when you don't approve of a friend's engagement

wishes for my best friend on her engagement

A big congratulations is in order, because your friend just got engaged. After you get over the initial excitement, squealing, and jumping up and down, it's time to shower your bestie with all the love. The best way to show how stoked you are is by posting a selfie of you two together, and using captions for when your friend gets engaged to wish the couple the very best.

This is the moment you've been talking about for years. You might have even placed bets at your weekly squad brunch on when it would happen, and now, it has. You can't wait to dive into your Pinterest boards and help out with the wedding planning and bachelorette party duties. But before you get ahead of yourself, you want to say, "congrats" in a special way.

Go through your phone and pick out all the best pics of you and your friend together, along with their SO. Luckily, Instagram allows you to choose up to 10 photos, but the caption is where things get a little tricky. You have so much you want to say, and a simple "congrats to my bestie" falls kind of flat. Don't worry, because I have these 25 captions for you to use. That way, you can get right back to toasting to the happy couple, and dancing around the room with your friend.

1. "I'm so happy for you and your new ring. I mean fiancé."

2."And so, your adventure begins my dear friend."

3."Someone pop the champagne, because my friend's changing her last name."

4."My friend's now engaged AF."

5."I can't keep calm. My best friend just got engaged!"

6."Congrats, I've never seen a couple more deserving of the title MFEO than you two."

7."You're the only person I'm OK with sharing my BFF with."

8."Congrats, my friend. Here's to love, laughter, and happily ever after."

9."I'm so happy for you two... and the thought of wedding cake in my future."

10."My best friend is going to be a bride!"

11."The best thing to hold onto in life is each other." — Audrey Hepburn

12."Adding 'bride squad' to my resume today."

13."Confetti here, champagne there, love everywhere."

14."May your life together be full of love, and may your love be full of life."


16."I knew your fiancé was smart."

17."You're getting a husband/wife. I'm getting a party. It's happily ever after for everyone involved."

18."Love doesn’t make the world go ’round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile." — Franklin P. Jones

19."Look at you, getting all married and sh*t."

20."Damn right, he/she put a ring on it!"

21."You both make me believe in Disney movies."

22."I still remember when you first had a crush on each other. What a fun journey this has been."

23."Congrats on finding someone who is just as wonderful as you."

24."You're going to be the cutest old couple."

25."You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep, because reality is finally better than your dreams." — Dr. Seuss

In need of engagement party ideas?

We’ve got great ideas for your best friends engagement party. Don’t worry about gift giving either because we have ideas for those too! 

We want your friend’s engagement to be unforgettable. That’s why we have put together a list of awesome ideas for parties and gift ideas. We’re going to cover all the bases, so grab a pen and pad. 

Here’s a quick and easy guide to the best engagement party imaginable and the best gift ideas! 


Engagement Party Ideas Your Friend Will Love

There are many engagement party ideas out there, so how do you know which one to pick. You might be hesitant your friend will like what you choose.

If you’re afraid of making the wrong choice, we’re here to help.

But first, we got to flesh out the details. Choosing the best party idea and theme is about fulfilling engagement wishes. This means, giving your friend the fairytale they’ve always dreamed of.

Ask yourself some easy questions like: 

  • What does your friend enjoy most? Wild parties or family reunions? 
  • Do they enjoy mature activities like wine tasting or amusement park days?
  • What’s their favorite food style? Does their favorite restaurant cater?  
  • What trendy items can you get your hands on for the party? 

These questions will help you better gauge what your friend would enjoy. You could settle on a backyard rustic family and friend reunion. If that sounds too dull, try out a night on the town.

Reserve the VIP section at a nightclub. Then, order up some champagne to give a proper engagement congratulations! 

Gift Giving Ideas

Arranging a party can be quick the chore with our busy modern day lives. That’s why we want to give you a list of great gift giving ideas.

That way, you won’t have to fret about a party and the details involved. 

The best gifts to give are those that are thoughtful and personal. Here’s where you get to show your friend how good of a friend you have been. Do you know their dreams?

Can you name their favorite color?

Little details aid you in finding or constructing the perfect gift to give. While it may seem intimidating to find the right gift, it’s all about letting it come from the heart. 

Are all your ideas running dry? Not to fret! Here are something’s you can do to blow your best friends mind… 

Consider Their Core Values and Consider Their Partner

You can find many videos all around the internet about sky lanterns.

They look beautiful as people are releasing sky lanterns during weddings. You may consider this for a backyard engagement party, or offer them as one of your engagement gifts.

But, if you have an eco-friendly friend, sky lanterns may not be the best option. Instead, try out eco-friendly gift ideas that’ll let them know you care about their values. You’ll also be doing the planet a huge favor since sky lanterns can be a fire hazard.

Remember to be mindful of your friend and what they like, including their partner. This ensures both enjoy their engagement gift, and you avoid an uncomfortable moment. 

Make a Picture or Memory Storybook

Illustrate your friend’s engagement in a picture book. There are online creators that come at little to no cost to you. There are several options for different book styles, sizes, and paper texture. 

Gather up their Facebook photos, or ask for them in a subtle way. You can download the photos, and then load them up in a PDF file. This format is great for the book creator of your choice.

There are plenty of options for memory bookmakers, so read up on the details before starting! 

Gift Cards for Bridal Supplies

Weddings cost a ton of money! There are some many details to think about like: 

  • Rings
  • Wedding Attire 
  • Tables/Chairs/Tablecloths/Centerpieces 
  • Bouquet 
  • Venue

This doesn’t include the reception. The reception includes catering, live bands or DJ’s, and venue. Most couples like to hire a photographer for the day as well. Weddings could range from hundreds to several thousands of dollars. 

That’s where you can help. Buy gift cards to your friend’s favorite bridal store to cover some of their costs.

If you’re a bridesmaid or groomsmen, you might offer to pay for your suit, or dress and makeup. 

Every little bit counts, and it will help the marrying couple manage the expenses. 

The Rings!

Do you know if your friend is planning on popping the question, but they got to buy the ring first? Then, you’re in the best spot to be! Offer up to pay for a beautiful engagement ring. 

There are several rings to choose from like rose gold engagement rings that are all the craze! Offering to pay for the rings takes a huge load of your friend’s shoulders, as weddings can be expensive.

Covering a little will ease quite a bit of stress of their shoulders. 

Buy Them a Ticket to Someplace Nice 

While this may be a bit on the pricey side, this gift idea is priceless. It’s the perfect way to make your friend feel ‘over the moon.’ Get your friend and their fiancee a ticket to one of the best places to travel! 

While material possessions are nice, travel is what we all dream of. Your friend will have the chance to make lifetime memories. They’ll never forget this amazing gesture. 

Getting the Party Going 

Engagement party ideas, not the only thing causing problems? Every bride could use a little help winning over their mother-in-law.

You might help your friend out by buying her future mother-in-law a stylish, chic gift!

The goal is to ensure that your friend has a great and memorable day! After all, it’s a once in a lifetime chance at living your own fairytale.

Go all out, and let your friend know how much you love them. 

Pull out all the stops with crafty and thoughtful gifts. Personal gifts are the best for sharing and expressing your love. 

Sharing is caring!


Whether you are looking for engagement wishes for a friend or a family . A good man knows to buy his fiancée the engagement ring on her.
