If you’re feeling pressured to say the perfect words, just don’t. Our wedding card etiquette guide features easy to follow instructions and specific example messages to help you navigate through what to write in a wedding card.

  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.

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:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Begin with your congratulations: The word “congratulations” cannot be-overused ever! Congratulations mean so many joyful things to a couple. It is a way to show that you are very excited for them. You are also letting them know that they did great by choosing to take that step.

  • Thank the couple for the invitation: You penned down your congratulations and best wishes, but that’s not enough. You got an invite because you matter to the couple and they spared you a thought. Yes, you plan on scouting the registry to get them a befitting gift. But before that, it is good to thank them for inviting you to witness their day. It is an honor and they rate you. You can do this in simple words and it doesn’t have to be extensive. Something like what we have below.

-“May your hearts beat as one forever”

Wedding Wishes Etiquette

Your wedding congratulations to a couple come at any time. It could be before the wedding, during or after the wedding. There is no time set in stone to send in your wedding cards congratulations. But the truth is, it is always best sending them in when the feeling is still fresh. Yet, there are some rules you should follow, so as not to go out of line.

  • The message must be perfectly suited for the couple who will get the card. Do not pick messages off anywhere. Put in some thoughts. Secondly, you should take into consideration your relationship with the couple. A message from gran quite differs from that of a colleague.
  • Your timing is another factor to consider. If you send in your wishes before the wedding, you’d be quite excited for their day. If you send in your wishes at the wedding, you’d only give warmest wishes for the future. Some guests will attach it to their wedding gift or drop it in the card box.
  • When addressing wedding wishes before the wedding, address it to the bride and groom. If you must use a last name for the bride, use her maiden name. You don’t know that she may or may not change her name. You can also stick with first names only. If you bring your wishes to the wedding, address it to Mr. and Mrs. No last names. If you must use names, first names only.
  • The same also goes for checks, gifts and gift cards. First names only.

Casual Wedding Wishes

This is for you if you don’t know what to say in a wedding card, or you are not much of a talker. Don’t do anything that’s not you, or you will ruin it all. Avoid the pressure of saying all the right words. Keep it short, simple and sweet. Casual wedding wishes cuts across all forms of relationships and the timing of your cards. It’s like the master key to all the doors for wedding wishes. They may be short but they are still heartfelt, emotional, and straight to the point. See some examples below.

  • Congratulations!
  • Accept my warmest wishes!
  • Sending you biggest hugs!
  • Giving you my best wishes!
  • I’m so excited for you!
  • Wishing you lots of happiness, love, and joy!
  • Wishing you unending joy and laughter!
  • Here’s to a life of love and peace!
  • Here’s to the happiest marriage yet.
  • Kisses and hugs!
  • Love you now, forever and a day.
  • Here’s to a lasting peace-filled marriage.

Formal Wedding Wishes

If the wedding is a formal affair, you know the ballroom setting kind. The tulle and lace combinations with a sober walk down the aisle. You may need to put in more effort, and this means more words. One-liners like in casual wedding wishes will not fit into this type of wedding. Although, it’s not cast in stone that you may say so much to convey your wishes. But the examples below will work fine.

  • I wish you a forever filled with love, unity, and happiness.
  • May your love remain ever strong even after your wedding day is over.
  • You join together to start a new and wonderful life. Best wishes on this new journey.
  • May you grow old and grey and may your love grow with you.
  • You made a part of your day. The memory will remain evergreen, as your love will be too.
  • Love is a beautiful thing and today you prove love right. May your love remain evergreen beautiful.

Funny Wedding Card Messages

Send the couple funny wedding wishes if you want to give them something to make them smile on their day. But this is a tricky type of message. Saying it face to face will sound fine, but putting it in writing may sound awkward. Hence, be careful with your word usage. This is in order not to sound as though you’re making fun, sarcastic or not sincere. Leave out jokes on future infidelity, body shaming or possibly divorce. The couple may not find it funny. See some examples below.

  • Thanks for letting us wine and dine at your expense. The meals were great; so will your marriage be!
  • Love, cherish and always pick his chips.
  • Happy marriages have a secret. Only the married can know it. Happy married life!
  • The two of you become one today. Do I get two plates of food each when I visit?
  • Be kind to each other. You never know, she could know where your car keys are. Stay married!
  • Thanks for the free wine, we are glad to celebrate your marriage on your behalf.

People who are religious believe in the presence and power of a supreme being whom they reverence. What better way to frame a wedding message to them by bonding them with their creator? Starting their marriage with strength and promise attached to their beliefs is a beautiful one. So, check out the beliefs of the couple before Penning down your wishes.

Examples below for Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, and all.

  • Your marriage is on a side foundation and bound by your faith.
  • May the one who ordained your meeting preserve you in love, joy, and peace till the end of days.
