Ah, wedding season is upon us! Spring is just around the corner and that means that wedding season will be in full swing before we know it. If you’re struggling with what to write in a wedding card, we’re here to help with warm wedding wishes — and a top tip for what NOT to write inside a wedding card.
Many times, if you shop the right wedding card, it says exactly what you want to say, and then you just need to sign your name. Easy! But adding a little personal note to it is always a great idea, too. Here are some tips along with stylish wedding greeting cards we spotted at Minted.
What to Write in a Wedding Card
When you’re writing a wedding card, follow these easy steps to craft the perfect message.
1. Offer congratulations to the couple.
2. Share your well wishes.
(OPTIONAL) 3. Tell a story, an anecdote, or share a favorite memory.
4. Say thank you for being a part of their celebration
5. Sign your name
Writing a wedding card should always be done in hand-writing, but that’s pretty obvious. :) Take your time and make sure you craft the words you’re going to write before you start putting pen to paper to prevent any errors.
Get stuck? Here are fifteen best things to write inside a wedding card to the happy couple so you can tackle that #3 on the list above.
“Wishing you love and happiness on your wedding day and beyond.”
“Here’s to love and laughter as you embark on your new chapter in life.”
“I/We wish you a lifetime of love and joy.”
“It is an honor to share in your celebration! I/We’re so happy for you both!”
“Yay, it’s official! Best wishes as you begin your marriage.”
“Here’s to a lifetime of happily ever after. Cheers!”
“May your life be filled with laughter and joy.”
“Welcome to the family! Thank you for letting us share in your special day.”
“May the love you share continue to grow stronger with each year. Cheers!”
“Here’s to a long and happy marriage.”
What NOT to Write in a Wedding Card
Be personal. Do not write “congrats!” and sign your name. There was an old rule that it was improper to say “congratulations” on marriage to a bride; it implies that he or she is lucky to have found someone to marry her. Can you believe that? The rule is out of date, but there’s something to be said about saying something more than just a single — congrats. Get more creative with it using the wedding wishes shared above.
