What To Write In A Wedding Card?

When you send a wedding card, it’s important that you remember to write something in it. There are so many factors that will determine the success of your card. The wording and the design should be chosen with care. It should express what you would like to convey to the bride and groom at this time in their life, but also be able to stand on its own as a keepsake from their day.

Our wedding card etiquette guide features easy to follow instructions and example messages to help you navigate through what to write in a wedding card.

  1. congratulation is in order. No matter what your personal writing style, this common expression is a great way to warm up your wedding greeting.
  2. Add a wedding wish tailored to the couple. Use the next few lines of the card to create a personalized wedding wish for the couple. Before you begin to fill the blank space, think about your relationship with the couple. What will the bride and groom enjoy reading after their big day?
  3. Thank the couple.  Save a line in your greeting to express your gratitude to the bride and groom for inviting you to be a part of one of the biggest days of their lives.
  4. Sign off with a warm closing. Before you sign your name leave the newlyweds with a warm closing.
