what to write in a wedding card

thoughtful wedding wishes

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.”
