Are you looking for the best happy wedding wishes and cards? Here is some wonderful wedding congratulations message for your friend, sister or brother.

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

Top 100 Short Wedding Wishes

short wedding wishes for cards

You've wrapped the gift, remembered to buy confetti and now you're sitting down to write wedding wishes in the wedding card before heading to the ceremony, but can't think of a suitable message to scribble down for the happy couple – sound familiar?

Wedding wishes can be tricky to get right, even if you're close to the newlyweds. You don't want to be too soppy and sentimental (especially if your boss or a distant relative is the one getting hitched), but also want to wish the happy couple the best in their future lives together and thank them for inviting you along to their special day without sounding like everyone else.

Should you stick with a short and sweet wedding message (such as best wishes and simply signing your name) or opt for an in-joke essay? And what should you write in a wedding card if you can't make the nuptials?

Work out what to write in your wedding card with our handy wedding wishes etiquette guide. Oh, and – as a rule – its best to take your card with you to the wedding and leave it on the gift table at the reception, but you can also post it to the newlyweds afterwards if you forget.

Do you say congratulations for a wedding?

Yes, you can. It was once frowned upon to congratulate a newly married bride. Why? Well it could be taken as an insult because you were thought to be congratulating her for finally finding a man. Ridiculous, we know! Luckily that silly rule has long been forgotten. That said, if you don't know the couple very well, 'best wishes' is also a nice message.

Is it okay to write a funny message in a wedding card?

Of course, especially if you know the newlyweds well! They'll no doubt treasure a card with a few in-jokes, nicknames and a funny message. Just keep it clean in case they decide to put your card on the mantelpiece or show the kids!

What do you write in an informal wedding card?

We like these informal wedding wishes:

  • Wishing you both all the happiness in the world. Thank you for inviting us to be part of your special day.
  • Congratulations to one of our favourite couples. Now let's drink Champagne and dance on the table!
  • Congratulations [insert names]. Let the party begin!
  • It makes us so happy to see the two of you so happy. Congratulations!
  • Here's a little something from us to you on your special day [if you're including a gift]

What do you write in a formal wedding card?

We like these formal wedding wishes:

  • May your married life be as happy and filled with love as your wedding day. Congratulations.
  • Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness together.
  • Congratulations on finding the perfect partner to share your life with. May today be the start of a long and happy life together.
  • May the years ahead be filled with happiness and lasting joy. Congratulations!

What do you write in a wedding card for a wedding you can't attend?

These wedding wishes will convey your disappointment at missing their big day:

  • Wishing you all the happiness in the world as you start your married life together. Sorry we can't be there to share your special day, but please know we are toasting you from afar.
  • So sad to miss your wedding day. Sending all our love and best wishes.
  • Thinking of you both with love on your special day.
  • With you in spirit as you celebrate your love. Congratulations!

There's no hard and fast rule as to when to send your wedding card if you can't make the nuptials, but a few days before the ceremony is always a thoughtful touch.


There are many things to think about when writing a wedding card, such as Casual wedding wishes are great for a short and sweet message.

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.
