Funny Wedding Messages for the Happy Couple

inspirational wedding wishes messages

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.”

A happily married couple will look through their wedding cards and guestbook entries for the rest of their lives. They’ll look back on their friend’s wedding wishes and sage advice with fondness, but why not make them look back on yours with laughter?

Make your wedding card or guestbook entry stand out from the crowd by using some of these funny wedding messages as a guideline. Here are 36 hilarious and funny marriage quotes, jokes, and pieces of advice you can pass on to the newlyweds–to–be!

Funny wedding messages about marriage

Wedding is the much-awaited event in every individual’s life. The beautiful and funny wedding wishes, wedding congratulations messages, happy married life wishes, and other wedding wishes from friends and families make the day even more special for the couple. Random wedding day wishes or wedding messages to the bride and groom will fail to create a lasting impression on the newlywed couple.

If your best friend is walking down the aisle, then simple wedding wishes messages will fail to bring that beautiful smile on her/his face. You need to be more creative and come up with some really funny wedding messages and wedding wishes quotes for them.

Wondering how to compose funny wedding wishes for best friend?

Just relax and pen down your thoughts in beautifully creative and funny words. As long as your wedding congratulations message is honest and heartfelt, your funny wedding messages can make your buddy smile just a little, and the wedding wishes quotes sound inspiring and positive to your friend, then your efforts will surely pay off.

But, if words do not come naturally to you, then refer back to this article for some of the best and funny wedding messages. The following wedding wishes quotes and messages are simple yet funny, and your friend will adore them for years to come.

Let’s have a look at them –

  1. “I knew you two were madly in love with each other, but didn’t think that you’ll be mad enough to marry. Have a great life ahead.”
  2. “To the man who couldn’t spring for drinks when he was out with the guys, but is now blowing up his money on his huge wedding, you have left no doubt that you love this girl/guy! Congratulations.”
  3. “You’ve finally found someone who understands your weird jokes. Hold onto them forever!”
  4. “There is nothing worse than a friend getting married. Now my parents have one more reason to coax me into getting married. Congratulations.”
  5. “Never ever discount the idea of marriage. Sure, someone might tell you that marriage is just a piece of paper. Well, so is money, and what’s more life-affirming than cold, hard cash?”
  6. “May you live each day like your last, and live each night like your first.”
  7. “Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.” – Mark Twain

  13. “In the words of Mindy Kaling: I don’t want to hear about the endless struggles to keep sex exciting, or the work it takes to plan a date night. I want to hear that you guys watch every episode of The Bachelorette together in secret shame, or that one got the other hooked on Breaking Bad and if either watches it without the other, they’re dead meat. I want to see you guys high–five each other like teammates on a recreational softball team you both do for fun.”
  14. “Getting married is like going to drama school. May there be more comedy than melodrama.”
  15. “Being married is like any other job; it helps if you like your boss!”
  16. “And now you two have officially become one: one bed, one remote, one bathroom! Congratulations on your union as life partners!”

  19. “May your day be extra special and fun – because tomorrow the hard work begins!”
  20. “Getting married is like being in drama school. You get to practice everything from comedy to melodrama to tragedy. Congratulations on your journey to the theatre!”
  21. “Today I have 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. You guys are getting expensive – but so worth it! Congratulations.”
  22. “Marriage means commitment. Of course, so does insanity. You guys must be truly insane or MADLY in love.”
  23. “What’s the best way to have your husband remember your anniversary? Get married on his birthday”

  28. “Saying I do while getting married is like blindly clicking on the I Accept checkbox while installing new software on your computer. You do it despite having no clue of what will come next. Congratulations on getting married.”
  29. “A man who correctly guesses a woman’s age may be smart, but he’s not very bright”
  30. “Why buy the cow? Maybe because every day the cow asks you when you’re going to buy it. And you live in a really small apartment with the cow and you can’t avoid that question at all. Also, the cow is way better at arguing than you are … But for real, why buy the cow? Let’s be real. Why buy the cow? Because you love her. You really do.” –John Mullaney
  31. “Thanks for the free booze. Best wishes for a long, happy marriage!”

Groom: “I do what she says…”

Final thoughts

Leaving humorous messages on your wedding card or guest book with personal anecdotes about the happy couple, thoughts on children, married life, and sex are all fair game when you’re addressing the newlyweds. These funny wedding messages will add an air of humor and truth to your guestbook entry that will make your bride and groom laugh.

You can also compose your funny wedding messages by referring back to these mentioned quotes and add a few extra witty words here and there that make sense. They will be your very own artwork that you can proudly boast off in front of your gang. And who knows, you might end up getting back the same funny wedding messages as congratulations on your wedding from the same group.
