Wedding Cards What to Write

This is the season for Weddings and most of us will attend at least one wedding over the next couple of months. If you’re not one of the poetic types and often get stuck when writing your good wishes for the newlyweds, we are here to help.

Congratulations or Felicitations?

Thankfully we no longer live in a time where it is thought that a woman is lucky when asked their hand in marriage, rather both the man and woman are seen as lucky to have found each other. But there was a time when writing congratulations might have offended the bride-to-be because it was thought of as congratulating her on actually landing a man!

For the most part, writing the wedding card is all about making your words heartfelt. Below are some of our favourite wedding wishes. Feel free to use them and add your own words for that special touch.

May your joining together bring you more happiness than you can imagine.

Our marriage advice: Always kiss the cook, whoever cooks DOESN’T clean.

May the Lord bless you and keep and surround you with love in your new life together.

Your union is a blessing, may it only grow stronger as the days go by.

The love you share is immense and sweet. May your love never fade away.

The love you share is an inspiration to everyone who knows you. We wish a world of happiness to the beautiful couple.

Your wedding day will come and go, but may your love forever grow.

“Insomuch as love grows in you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.” ~ St. Augustine


“Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery
