wishes for newly wed

Now and forever, may your wonderful family never encounter grief and sorrow. Have a spectacular life together!


Love is not a perfect fairy tale without problems and fighting from time to time. Love is a hard work, but I know that you guys can handle it. You are inspiring. Wishing you the best of all, don’t forget to be happy.


At first I wanted to wish you a lot of patience, but then I realized that there’s no need. Because you guys are the most amazing and harmonious couple in the world, and patience has nothing to do in your relationship. It’s only about love. Congratulations!


Getting married is one the most important decisions in life, and sometimes people doubt if it’s really worth it. But looking at you I know that you are sure of each other. Your love makes me believe that magic is real. Wishing you all the best.


The first time ever I saw you together I knew you were meant for each other. Match made in heaven, that’s what people say, right? Looking at you now I cannot be happier. I wish your love to last forever. Congratulations on your wedding!

Here are ideas for classic expressions of congratulations and quotes you can incorporate in your wedding message. There are also funny and religious.
