W.H. Auden

"Like everything which is not the involuntary result of fleeting emotion but the creation of time and will, any marriage, happy or unhappy, is infinitely more interesting than any romance, however passionate."

Scroll through our entire guide or quickly jump to a section that best suits you:


What to Write in a Wedding Card

The perfect wedding card message should be tailored to the couple, full of sentimental value and crafted from the heart. With that being said, no two wedding card messages will be the same. If you’re feeling pressured to say the perfect words, just don’t. Our wedding card etiquette guide features easy to follow instructions and specific example messages to help you navigate through what to write in a wedding card.

  1. A congratulations is in order. No matter what your personal writing style, this common expression is a great way to warm up your wedding greeting.
  2. Add a wedding wish tailored to the couple. Use the next few lines of the card to create a personalized wedding wish for the couple. Before you begin to fill the blank space, think about your relationship with the couple. What will the bride and groom enjoy reading after their big day?
  3. Thank the couple.  Save a line in your greeting to express your gratitude to the bride and groom for inviting you to be a part of one of the biggest days of their lives.
  4. Sign off with a warm closing. Before you sign your name leave the newlyweds with a warm closing.

Wedding Congratulations Messages

Wishing a couple congratulations is often times an expression people choose to include in their wedding greetings. It serves as a supportive as well as celebratory way to let the couple know they did a great job finding their soulmate (awh.) Saying ‘congrats’ is appropriate never mind which side of the aisle you are sitting on once the ceremony starts. Whether you’ve been best friends with the bride for years and have just met the groom or know both parties all too well, you can never go wrong with a sincere wedding congratulations message. Follow step one from above and pick one of your favorite congrats messages below or add them to your own words to get started on your wedding card.

Examples:

  • Congratulations to the wonderful two of you!
  • This calls for congratulations and probably champagne.
  • I hope through the years you become even better friends and share every possible kind of happiness life can bring. Congrats.
  • May your marriage be filled with all the right ingredients: a heap of love, a dash of humor, a touch of romance, and a spoonful of understanding. May your joy last forever. Congratulations!
  • Your wedding day may come and go, but may your love forever grow. Congratulations to the perfect couple!
  • Through the storms of life, may your love for one another be steadfast and strong. Wishing you joy and happiness on your wedding day. Congratulations!
  • Congratulations on finding each other! Your greatest adventure has just begun.
  • Congratulations to you both on your very special day! May your wedding be filled with special memories you can treasure forever!
  • Congratulations on tying the knot!
  • You guys are great together. So happy for you two!
  • ‘Two become one’- what a beautiful thing. Congratulations!
  • Heartfelt congratulations.
  • Warmest congratulations and love!
  • Congratulations on your wedding day and best wishes for a happy life together!
  • Feeling so much joy for the two of you as you join your lives in marriage!
  • Seeing you two make promises and step forward into the future is so inspiring and wonderful.

Casual Wedding Wishes

After the ceremony when the couple opens their wedding cards they are going to enjoy reading each card for various reasons, but most importantly, because of whom they are from. Be yourself as you are writing your wedding card and make sure that your personality shines. If you are more casual, there is nothing wrong with keeping your wishes short and sweet. Just make sure that you build upon your congratulations and say something charming.

Examples:

  • Best wishes!
  • We’re/I’m so happy for you!
  • Wishing you lots of love and happiness.
  • Wishing you a long and happy marriage.
  • Wishing you the best today and always.
  • So happy to celebrate this day with you both!
  • Best wishes for a fun-filled future together.
  • Wishing you fulfillment of every dream!
  • Time flies and things change, but I wish that your love for each other would stay unchangeable.
  • You’ve made me believe in true love. And I hope my belief will be unwavering forever, because it seems like you’ll stay together until the end.

Formal Wedding Wishes

You can also use your wedding wishes to mirror the theme of the ceremony. If floor length dresses, glistening chandeliers and lavish centerpieces are a few big day details, look into using one of these formal wedding wishes to express your happiness for the bride and groom.

Examples:

  • Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness.
  • May the years ahead be filled with lasting joy.
  • Best wishes on this wonderful journey, as you build your new lives 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 love and happiness you feel today shine through the years.
  • When you two are knotted as one, both families and friends share in oneness of their marital union; may this marriage be a bridge to usher happiness, peace and prosperity.
  • As you step into a new life as new couples, you become treasure to our community and the world.
  • Let love be the focal point of your daily life. May you find hope, peace and faith in each other’s arms.
  • Blessed is the man who finds a wife. May the joy of your new home be filled with laughter, smiles, kisses, hugs, respect understanding and faithfulness. Happy wedlock.

Funny Wedding Card Messages

If you think a funny wedding card message will put a smile on the bride and groom’s faces then go ahead and write something laugh-worthy. Just proceed with caution, you don’t want your wedding message to come off as sarcastic or insincere. Remember that a sentiment that may easily come across as a joke can be taken the wrong way on paper. With that being said, divorce jokes are off limits! Use your best judgement when writing your funny wedding wish and you’ll be well on your way to creating the perfect wedding card with a side of smiles.

Examples:

  • Thanks for inviting us to eat and drink while you get married. Congrats!
  • Our marriage advice: love, honor and…scrub the toilet.
  • Thanks for the free booze. Best wishes on a long, happy marriage.
  • Marriage marks the end of a love story and the start of a wrestling match. Wishing you the very best of everything anyway.
  • I’ll tell you the secret of a happy marriage. It remains…a secret to all! Wishing you all the best of times ahead.
  • On your wedding day today, you have now become two from one. Does that mean I will get two birthday gifts from you both every year?
  • As Bill and Ted said, ‘Be excellent to each other.’
  • Getting married is like going to drama school. May there be more comedy than melodrama.
  • Marriage is so beautiful. You have finally found that one person you get to annoy all through your life.
  • Today I realized that life is not fair for single people like me. Until now I had to buy you a gift only once a year on your birthday. Now I have two birthdays plus a wedding anniversary to buy gifts for. Congratulations to my best friend on tying the knot.

Religious Wedding Wishes

Sharing a religious bond with the bride and groom can be the perfect way to tailor your wedding wishes. Think about the couple’s religious beliefs and views before you begin writing your card. Use their practices to guide your religious wedding wishes.

Examples:

  • May God bless you and your union.
  • May God grant you all of life’s blessings and love’s joys.
  • Love God first and it will be easier to love your spouse second.
  • We are looking forward to finding out what God has planned for you two.
