  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.

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!

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:

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.

  • 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.

  • Church or religious friends: Congratulations on your wedding! You deserve many blessings and a joyous life. I can't wait to see what God has in store for your new family.
  • Family friends: Since we've all been going to the same family functions for years, I am so glad you get to throw your new spouse into the mix! Now we all have someone exciting and new to talk to. Congratulations on your wedding! Love you!

Compose a Message to the Bride and Groom

Whether your are attending a wedding in person or not able to go, you should bring a card or send one to the couple. If you sent a gift, you can still bring a card to the wedding and put it on the gifts table at the event. If you aren't planning on attending, you should still send a heartfelt gift message for a wedding in a letter to the couple expressing your words of congratulations to them.

As you compose your message, keep the following tips in mind when planning what to say when someone gets married:

  • A poem or quotation on love and marriage can be a good way to begin or end a letter.
  • Lighthearted humor may be appropriate, depending on your relationship.
  • Speak about your personal thoughts or advice on love and how it applies to the couple.
  • Write down future hopes for the couple and their happiness.
  • Make a sincere apology for not attending the wedding.
  • Propose getting together to view photographs and talk about the wedding after the honeymoon.

Keep the mailing date in mind when you are sending the letter. If you send it before the wedding, you can mention how you are happy to help with any preparations before the blessed event. If you are mailing the letter after the wedding, you could write a short note about how everyone raved about the bride's dress, wedding cake or other aspect of the wedding.

When to Send a Congratulatory Letter

If you know you cannot attend the wedding, you should send your letter as soon as you possibly can. In cases of an emergency situation, you will want to send your message of congratulations as close to the actual wedding date as possible. Of course, if you are attending the wedding, just bring the letter along with you and place it in the card basket if it will not be attached to a gift.

It's no easy feat to write a high quality wedding wish—especially for a close friend or a relative. Much like all other wishes for special occasions.

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.
