What Do I Put in a Wedding Card?


What to put in a wedding card can cause a lot of anxiety. Should you write something funny? Mention your gift? Just stick some money in the card? While the task of preparing a wedding card can seem daunting, there is really no reason to stress about the details of the card.

Include a Heartfelt Note

  • Many couples will keep the cards they receive at their wedding as mementos, reflecting on the sentiments written by their friends, family and loved ones years ago. Be sure to write something that can be read and cherished for some time. You should write something about your relationship with the couple, or the couple's relationship with each other. Include a personal note that you are comfortable with.

Cash Versus Check

  • If you are giving money as your gift, it is usually best to include a check. There have been many reports of theft at wedding receptions, and cash is irreplaceable. If you include a check, and the cards are lost, stolen or damaged, you can issue a new check to the couple. However, the benefit to giving cash is that the couple may not have time to deposit the checks prior to their honeymoon, while they can take the cash gifts with them.

Gifts Sent In Advance

  • To help the bride with her thank-you notes later, if you sent a gift ahead, reference it in your card. This will help the bride to recall who sent which gift, and will help her recall what you gave when she revisits the cards in the future.
