How to Write Wedding Celebration Messages


A bride and groom may receive hundreds of elegant wedding cards trimmed with lace, sparkling with glitter and printed with generic best wishes and congratulation messages. Some couples even receive duplicates of the same store-bought wedding card. Personalize your card to the newlyweds with a thoughtful note they will remember and cherish throughout their marriage. Whether you pick a card from the store or create your own, craft a message that expresses how you feel, wishes good fortune for the future, recalls a special memory, sparks a laugh and shares sage advice.

  • Address the bride and groom by name with a salutation such as "Congratulations John and Jane!"

  • Express your feelings over the couples' nuptials. "I am so happy for you both" or "I am so thankful Jane found such a wonderful man to share her life with."

  • Send well wishes including luck, fun and laughter, joy and prosperity, and health and happiness.

  • Share a special memory of the couple or an applicable memory of the bride or groom. "I remember listening to John gush about Jane after your first date."

  • Make the couple laugh with tasteful jokes about marriage or an inside joke among friends.

  • Include wise words about love or marriage such as a poem, famous quote or a spiritual passage.

  • Give advice learned from your own relationship such as, "Never go to bed angry," "Schedule a date night every week" or "End every night with a kiss."

  • Add a note explaining the significance of your wedding gift, if applicable. "I know how much you both love to cook. I hope you enjoy many romantic breakfasts with the heart-shaped waffle iron."

  • Sign your name with love.

Tips & Warnings

  • Tape the card to an unwrapped gift and cover both card and present with wrapping paper or a gift bag to ensure your celebration message does not get lost or separated from the gift.
