Special Engagement Wishes And Congratulations Messages

  • ♥ Allow me to be the first to tell you guys “It’s about time!” Honestly, I’m thrilled for you both and wish you the best in life.
  • ♥ An engagement is the precursor to a marriage. By that token, consider my short wish a precursor to the praises I’ll say then. Well done!
  • ♥ It is truly heartening that, in the world of perils and darkness, you two have managed to brighten it with future vows of love and light.
  • ♥ Many say “I love you;” not all couples convey that message with palpable sincerity. This announcement only crystallizes that energy, which seems natural to you both.
  • ♥ While I’ve seen many great and wondrous things in my life, the moment you guys followed your hearts and got engaged is definitely among the best.
  • ♥ You two are proof that lasting relationships, the best of them all, develop out of friendship. Something clicked and you saw each other as something “more.”
  • ♥ This joyous moments marks the point where you two tried out the appetizer before the entree of marriage. Remember to savor these moments just as well.
  • ♥ Although they are made from links, chains only constrict a relationship. The threads of friendship and mutual understanding help tether a marriage to bliss and joy.
  • ♥ While some may call me jealous for admitting you’ll spend more time with your fiance than us; truthfully, I’m envious you found someone who completes you.

  • ♥ Congratulations! Omedetto! Bon chance! Mazel tov! Uh, I’m sure there are plenty of other ways to wish you guys success, but my heart outpaces my words here.
  • ♥ I wish both of you the best of luck in your future endeavor. Feel free to send over the untouched libations, I’m sure I’ll be celebrating this for days.
  • ♥ Some may say mathematics has no place in love, but you’d be hard-pressed to refute one plus one is everything and two losing one equals nothing.

  • ♥ I want to wish you both great congratulations and I look forward to attending the proper ceremony that signifies the union of your lives and surname.

    Along life’s busy road
    Remember to bring your dreams along with you

    As your journey starts today
    That happiness walks with you
    Hand-in-hand along the way.

What to write in an Engagement Card

The key to writing the perfect message in an card is to express your genuine feelings. You can be a friend or a family member, and your wishes will vary accordingly. Follow these tips to create the perfect message in a card:

1.) Family Members: As a family member, the key is to have your personality show in the engagement card message. You can recall your best moments with them. Make sure to mention the fiancé in the message. As a parent, it can be quite hard to share your true emotions in verse. Make sure that you congratulate the couple and let them know how you feel. It is also recommended to add a personal touch to make the card more special.

2.) Friends: If you are a friend, your message should come from your heart and should feel real. Traditional engagement wishes can work just perfect. If you are close pals, you may also write something personal.

3.) Funny Wishes: There are always friends who cannot be sentimental like others. If that is the case with you, you can try a funny approach. Make sure the joking isn’t inappropriate. Keep in mind that sarcasm is difficult to pull off in written form. Bounce your humor off others to gauge appropriateness of your message.

What to Write in an Engagement Card Message

Your engagement card message should reflect your relationship with the newly engaged bride or groom, all while including customary engagement greetings. Follow these three rules below when writing your engagement card to make your writing process easier.

  1. Congratulate the couple first. The initial phrase that the couple reads should be a short and simple “congratulations” phrase. You won’t spend too much time worrying about how to begin your card if you follow this simple tip.
  2. Write a heartfelt message that is unique to your relationship with the recipient or couple. This can be a funny engagement message with an inside joke or a sentimental message with a memory about the couple, as long as it feels personalized to the nature of your relationship with the recipient. This is the most important section of any engagement card and should be genuine.
  3. Send your well wishes. Look to the future by letting the recipient or couple know what your well wishes are. Whether you’re wishing the couple endless years of laughter or wishing them a flawless wedding planning process, wishes are comforting at the end of a card.

Engagement Card Message Examples

Your engagement card message should be sentimental and reflective of your history with the recipient. As mentioned earlier, you can include a short memory about the newly engaged couple, in addition to letting your friend or loved one know how happy you are for them. We’ve provided an example for a bit of inspiration below:

Dear Lindsey,

Congratulations on your wedding engagement! I’m so happy to hear that you and _________ are taking the next step together.

I’ve enjoyed watching you grow as a person so much. I remember when you and John first met and how instant your connection with him was.

May your love shine brighter and your companionship grow richer with each passing day.

Best Wishes,
