Wedding Wishes: Here’s What You Can Write On A Wedding Card

wedding wishes
We know how hard it is to look for the perfect card for a couple, and then try to  figure out the perfect wedding wishes to write in the card. The good news is that there are no rules about how your wedding wishes should be. As long as they are heartfelt and positive, you’re good to go.

Your wedding wishes can be in the form of:

Casual wishes

It’s fine to write a casual message in the card, as long as you’re saying something nice or including a wish for the couple’s future.

Examples include: “…hugs and kisses…”, “…wishing you a long and happy marriage…”“…we are/I am so happy for you…”, etc.

Formal wishes

If you want to write a nice message, a more formal note is the way to go. It could be slightly longer and you can indulge your poetic side here, or just give timeless advice that you know they will need.

See what we mean: “May today be the beginning of a long, happy life together”, “Your wedding day will come and go, but may your love forever grow”, “…laugh together always, don’t let the sun go down on your anger, and protect your trust”.

Funny wishes

Everybody loves a good laugh, but this can get tricky because what could easily come across as a joke in conversation might be taken out of context on paper. So, you can stay off sarcastic jokes and personal references.

Examples: “…wishing you lots of love—and lots of makeup sex!”“Thanks for the free booze. Best wishes on a long, happy marriage!”

Religious wishes

Before writing religious wedding wishes, consider the couple’s beliefs and practices. If they aren’t religious or don’t worship regularly, something very religious could make them uncomfortable. If you’re unsure, it’s better to use general references.

Is it okay to say “congratulations”?

Some people believe that saying “congratulations” is not right because it implies that finding a spouse is an achievement. Some people don’t care, though, but to be safe, you can just stick to “best wishes”.
