If you’ve been staring at a blank wedding card for a while, you know how hard it is to come up with something original to say.
Here are few ideas for wedding card messages for newlyweds – there are plenty to choose from!
Wedding Cards Messages – The Etiquette
Here are a few things you should remember when creating your own personal message:
- you can either bring your card with you to the wedding or send it in advance before the wedding day
- if you haven’t been invited, that doesn’t mean you can’t send a card. Congratulations card is a nice gesture to let the couple know you are thinking of them on their big day.
- choose the style you want to use for the message – you can go very formal, casual or include something funny, if you know the couple will appreciate it
- choose a pre-printed message or create your own one – sentimental and tailor-made messages are appreciated more than just a card with printed poem and signature
- if you’re adding a funny message, avoid sarcastic or snarky jokes
- do not include anything that can be considered insulting by either party (i.e. better half etc)
- no jokes about divorce
