What to write in a wedding card?
Before we start with our ideas, there are a few things we need to touch on. Your message needs to be tailored according to your relationship with the future Mr and Mrs. First of all, you need to consider how close you are with the couple. If you are very close with both of them, or even best friends with one of them, your message for them can be more personal. You can even get a few inside jokes in to make them laugh when they are reading it. If, however you are not that close, you can keep it short and simple by congratulating them and wishing them bright future full of love.
There is also the occasion of the bride or groom being part of your family. Naturally, this means that you can be as personal as you want to be in your wedding wishes. Most importantly, don’t forget to welcome the other person to the family and say how happy you are to have them.
And, finally, you can tailor your wish in accordance to your gift. If your gift has some special meaning you can make it a point in your message and your wish for the couple.
