Wedding Card Messages to Delight the Bride & Groom

When it comes to wishing people well, even the most lyrical of us can suffer from writer’s block. Even though the messages don’t have to be long, it feels like there is an unbelievable amount of stress when writing them. Everyone tends to write similar versions of the same thing, and the pressure of coming up with something clever, original and meaningful can be crushing. So, what do you do when you can’t cope with the pressure of a task? Ask the professionals, of course. We’ve brainstormed and come up with some great wedding card messages from every relation of the happy couple. 

From the Best Man / Maid of Honour

It’s the Best Man’s job to be funny – from the bachelor party to the speech to the wedding card. Many go too far with this and make jokes about divorce rates and second weddings, but we think it’s a bit crass. So we like: “Saying I do while getting married is like blindly clicking on the ‘I Accept’ checkbox when installing new software in your computer. You do it despite having no clue of what will come next.” 

From the parents

The wedding card message from the parents is a chance to impart a little wisdom from your own experiences. Whether you are still married to your first spouse or on husband or wife number seven, you would have learned many lessons in commitment and romance over the years. Say something that reflects this such as, “It takes two to make a marriage work. It's not a 50-50 thing, either. Marriage takes 100 per cent from both sides to make it a success.” 

From a sibling

As a sibling, you need to do two things with your wedding card message – deliver a funny and meaningful message to your brother or sister, as well as welcoming a new member of the family. We suggest, “Bro/sis, we have spent our lives thus far together, and I thought we were the only ones who would never get bored of each other. I’m so happy you’ve found someone else who laughs at your lame jokes. New brother/sister-in-law; welcome to a lifetime of bad comedy.” 

From a close friend

You and the bride are good friends, but not so close that you are a bridesmaid or groomsman. The message in your card should reflect that relationship. You could go funny or sweet here – it will depend on your role in your friendship. Be familiar, but not overly personal. Something like, “You may now update your Facebook status” if you’re going for funny, or “We wish the best that love and a life together have to offer. Your love has stood the test of time in the past and is sure to continue this way in the future” if you want to go the serious route. 

From a colleague

Colleagues can fall into three categories: friends, work mates and plain colleagues. If you’ve never hung out with the bride or groom outside of a work setting, then you’re a plain colleague and you were probably just invited to the wedding out of politeness. Keep your wedding card message simple, impersonal and nice, like “We couldn't be happier for you and we offer you warm congratulations on your big day.”
