Wedding Wishes What to Write in a Wedding Card

Are You Trying to Decide What to Write in a Wedding Card?

After shopping long and hard to find the perfect wedding card for the soon-to-be-married couple you can then have a pretty rough time figuring out what to write in it. However, drafting the perfect wedding message doesn’t have to be difficult at all as there are no hard-and-fast rules about what to write in a wedding card. Here are some great wedding wishes to offer your congratulations to the bride and groom.

1. Wedding Card Etiquette

Wedding cards are customary for anyone wanting to send wedding wishes to an engaged or newly married couple. You may want to bring the card to the wedding reception or mail it directly to the couple whenever you wish. Congratulations for a wedding are welcome anytime by any couple.

Wedding cards come in many different formats, from standard greeting cards to homemade cards, small tags attached to gifts and even simple, digitally created wedding messages that are printed and sent to the couple with their gift.

2. Can One Use the Term “Congratulations?”

Yes, “Congratulations” is often the basic message people want to express in their wedding greetings. It serves as a support as well as celebratory remark to say to the couple even if you’ve never met one of the marrying couples. However, if the couple happens to be very traditional or come from a very traditional family, you may want to just write “best wishes.”

3. What to Write in a Wedding Card

A perfect wedding wish should be sweet and full of sentimental value and completely tailored to the couple. If you and the couple are lifelong friends, you may want your message to be a little more heartfelt, conveying how happy you are that they’ve found each other. On the other hand, if your relationship is casual it’s best to stick to something more straightforward like “best wishes for a fun-filled future together.”

If you are really good friends with the bride and groom and they both have a good sense of humor, a funny wedding wish may be much appreciated. If they are more reserved, formal wedding wishes like “May your love shine throughout the years” will be great. If the couple is religious and you share their faith, a spiritual verse or sentiment inspired by the bible will be well-received.

For your family that know you best and whom you know best, like your mom, dad or your siblings, you’ll want to create an over the top wedding wish. Remember to mention the new addition to the family. Before you sign your name on the card be sure to add a sweet warm closing for the couple.
