We've been there: You shop long and hard to find the perfect wedding card for the soon-to-be married couple and then you get home and have a pretty rough time figuring out what to write in it. The good news is, there are no hard-and-fast rules about what to write in a wedding card. As long as your wedding congratulations message is heartfelt and offers the couple a positive wish for their marriage, you're good to go.
It should almost go without saying that wedding cards are customary for anyone who wants to send wedding wishes to an engaged or newly married couple. If you're following traditional wedding guest etiquette, you'll either want to bring the card to the wedding reception or mail it directly to the couple (usually between the time you receive the wedding invitation and a few weeks after the wedding). Honestly though, you can send it whenever you want. You could even send a nice card if the wedding is small and you're not invited. Simply put: Wedding congratulations are welcome anytime by anyone!
As for the card itself, wedding cards come in lots of different formats—from standard greeting cards you find at a cute stationery shop to homemade cards, small tags attached to gifts and even simple, digitally created wedding messages that are printed and shipped to the couple with their gift. All of the above pass as a wedding card and are considered okay, so don't feel the need to have more than one. (Then again, if you bought a gift off the couple's registry and want them to also have a pretty card from you, take one to the reception and drop it in a wedding card box or on a gift table!)
In short, yes. That said, it used to be saying or writing "congratulations" to a newly married woman was once considered a faux pas because it was thought of as congratulating her on actually landing a man! (Yep, you read that right.) Today though, that's considered an outdated rule and school of thought. Still, if the couple happens to be very traditional or come from a very traditional family, you might want to avoid the term altogether and just say "best wishes."
The perfect wedding wish is sentimental, sweet and totally tailored to the couple. Is it for your favorite cousin and his new wife? Or your hilarious college roommate who finally settled down? Below are dozens of examples of wedding wishes quotes for inspiration. Use the quick links below to craft an amazing (genius!) wedding message:
Just because it's a formal wedding with floor-length dresses and tuxes doesn't mean you have to send a formal card with stuffy wording. (The card doesn't have to perfectly match the event.) Still, if you want to write a nice message that's timeless and romantic, a formal note is the way to go.
If you don't feel comfortable with formal wedding sayings, then don't do it. Be yourself. It's completely fine to write a more casual wedding message in the card, no matter the recipient. Put it this way: Short and sweet is always fine, as long as you're saying something nice or including a wish for the couple's future.
Go ahead and write something funny in the card that you think will make them laugh. Just be careful with your marriage wishes. What might easily come across as a joke in conversation could be taken the wrong way on paper. As a rule of thumb, avoid jokes that are sarcastic or snarky. Also off-limits? Steer clear of anything that could be considered insulting, imply that one of them is the "better half" or mention anything about it having taken way too long (or way too little time) to get married. Oh, and no divorce jokes!
If the couple is religious, then this might be the best option. Religious wedding card messages can mention God, tell them of your prayers or quote scripture. Before writing a religious message in a wedding card, consider the couple's beliefs and practices, and customize the message to them. If they aren't too religious or don't worship regularly, something very religious could make them uncomfortable, so it's be best to tone down religious elements or avoid them altogether. And if you're unsure of what religious message to write, opt for more general wedding words instead.
When writing a wedding card for family, you can go very general or very personal—it's completely up to you and the type of message you want to convey.
So you're writing a message on your brother's or sister's wedding card? The key here is personality. In some cases, sibling relationships are strained, in which case you might want to go general. But more often, your brother or sister is the person whom you know best, to whom you can make inside jokes or recall some of your favorite moments together. Just remember to mention the new spouse in your note!
It's a big deal when your son or daughter marries. And when you're the mother or father of the bride or groom, you'll most likely feel a flurry of emotions that are extra tricky to get down on paper. What's most important is that you wish the couple well. From there, add in some personal touches to the otherwise standard wedding wishes quote to give your wedding card message meaning. If you're happily married, you could even add some of your own marriage advice.
It's just as good of a choice to go classic with wedding wording on a friend's wedding card as it is to get specific and personal. Before you write, consider your relationship and how funny, serious, personal or sentimental you want to get with your wedding wishes. Then go from there.
When writing a card to your coworker who's getting married, you're probably not going to want to wish them "lots of love." Instead, it's best to go with general wording. Use one of the formal or casual examples above, or see below for a few appropriate, work-inspired quotes. All that said, it's more than possible that your coworker is a good friend. If that's the case, scroll up to "Wedding Card Wishes for a Friend."
Whether you're thrilled or lukewarm about the union, if your mom or dad is getting married (or remarried), it's completely normal to agonize a little over the right wedding card wording. Our best piece of advice? Be honest and tell the truth. Don't say you're crazy about the new husband or wife if you're not, but instead wish them both a happy future together. After all, isn't that what you want for your parent?

Sincerity should be the keyword with any wishes for wedding day. When it is time for you to pass along wedding wishes & wedding congratulations to the happy couple, you want them to feel the affection and bond that brought them to invite you to their wedding day and you to accept the invitation. Wedding wishes can be informal or formal, but should touch upon your desire to share your affection and memories of the couple. So many people simply don't know how to express those feelings, and so choose to recycle tired old sayings instead.
If there is simply no way that you think you can come up with something original, tasteful, short and yet to the point, you may want to use wedding wishes, as this is a fantastic way to use the words of another to express your point. Quotes can be from a famous author, a minister, a politician or historical figure. The internet has many places that provide free and famous quotes to help you design your greeting. If you are still unsure, just remember that restraint is a good thing, and that a light touch is the best way to express your greetings and congratulations. For example:

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.
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.
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.
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.
Religious Wedding Wishes
Religious wedding card message should match with the beliefs of the couple. These are very strong, straight and meaningful messages with depth. 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.
Wedding Card Messages for Friends
Wedding greetings to your friends can be funny or heartfelt. They are your friends, so they deserve all the joy you can put in. You can make your messages a personal one or leave it in general terms. This is depending on how close you are to the couple. But remember that your messages should express your love to them and convey your message right. Check below for some examples.
Wedding Wishes for a Family Member
Whether it’s your daughter, son, brother, sister, granddaughter or grandson getting married. Your wedding wishes must overflow with emotions and sincerely tell of your love. For the one whose sister or brother is getting married, a little fun and naughtiness would do. This is a person you lived and grew up with. Pour out your memories and wish them the best even as they leave home.
For the parents, it is a time of overflowing emotions. You cannot believe how the time flew or where it all went to. You cannot even believe that your baby is grown and taking major life decisions. Bare it all in your wish to them.
The grandparents are alive to witness their second generation walk down the aisle. Who would have thought? This stirs up a lot of emotions and it shows in the wedding wishes.
Check some examples below.
“Our joy knows no bounds as I receive you into this family. May you find joy, peace, happiness, and unity.”
“To my sister, my best pal, my ride or die, my confidante. We were little, now we’ve grown. We’ve done everything together and now we will part ways to better things.
