If you have a friend or relative who recently got engaged, there are humorous ways you can congratulate her. Friends and family members can get a good laugh from your spin on engagement congratulations. Put a smile on your loved one's face while offering her kudos on her upcoming nuptials.
Humorous Greeting Cards
If you're looking for something simple, send a humorous greeting card to the happy couple. This can come in the form of a traditional greeting card or an animated e-card. If the soon-to-be newlyweds have a favorite cartoon character, make a point of looking for cards and animated greetings featuring the character.
If you fancy yourself a bit of a wordsmith, compose a humorous poem for your friends. When putting together your poem, incorporate humorous aspects of married life, as well as the trials and tribulations of planning a wedding. In addition, feel free to poke fun at any of the happy couple's foibles. Be careful, though, not to cross the line and offend tender sensibilities. Some stories are best kept to yourselves.
If you really want to catch the attention of your friends and give them a congratulatory message they're sure to remember, deliver a singing telegram to their home or respective places of business. Your song should include humorous lyrics that make reference to marriage and the lighter side of engagement.
Humorous Engagement Gifts
Presenting your friends with humorous engagement gifts is another fun way to offer your congratulations. These gifts include novelty glassware, tongue-in-cheek wedding cake toppers, lighthearted bride and groom figurines and funny T-shirts. Posters that document the rules of marriage are another favorite. Consider a plastic ball-and-chain toy for the groom.
