It could be a message you pen down on a wedding card, a caption you write with the most memorable photos from the wedding or a simple Whatsapp message, but what makes a happy marriage wish truly remarkable is its potential to trigger the couple's feeling. It's upto you to choose if your wedding wish is going to be emotional, heartfelt, short and simple or funny - it depends on your bond with the couple and your personality, but writing a wedding wish or a heartfelt happy marriage message for them makes them feel special.

Wedding wishes and quotes

Whether you pick a gift from the registry or go for something personalised - flowers and a wedding card are a must. And if you are not going to be physically present at the wedding, then a virtual card, a message, or an email will be perfect. Wedding cards are customary for anyone who wants to send wedding wishes to a newly engaged couple or to a newly married couple. There are some things you need to keep in mind while sending wedding wish cards to couples on their big day.

  • Personalize the wedding wishes. The wedding card should not have a run-of-the-mill feel.
  • Make sure to write the name of the couple in your wedding wishes.
  • Ensure that the wedding wishes are not just directed to one person among the two. 
  • Ideally, these marriage quotes or wishes should be sent out a week before the wedding if you do not attend the wedding yourself. In case you go to the wedding, you can take your wedding card along or opt for verbal wishes too. However, the wedding wishes should be delivered to the couple within a week of the wedding.

Wedding cards come in a variety of formats. There is the paper format that you can pick from a stationery shop, the digital templates for emails or messages and even DIY handmade cards that you can create. For whichever format you pick, make sure your wedding wishes are on point.

Wedding Wishes for Best Friend

Wedding wishes and quotes

You might not be sisters or brothers, but your bond is as strong as it gets. For the longest time, the two of you could not imagine a life without each other. But like everything else in life, this phase of yours has come to an end. It is now time to send your best friend off with his/her chosen one to start a brand new life. In between the frenzy of the wedding decoration and catering arrangements, picking out matching outfits, and everything else, don't forget to pen down heartfelt wedding wishes for your best friend.

  • From binge-watching Friends and ignoring assignments to starting our first jobs together, we've come a long way. And now, as you prepare yourself to cross yet another milestone in your life, I can't help but feel overjoyed to see you so happy and content. I've seen you tackle the worst of days in the most graceful manner, and you deserve your big day to be as perfect and flawless as you are.

    I just want you to know that no matter where you are in life, I'll always be there for you. You might be about to marry your Mr. Right, but I'll always be your soul sister, your partner-in-crime, and your forever confidant. My wish for you, my best friend, is just that whatever you do, wherever you go, you find joy, happiness, and contentment. Life is an uphill climb, but you have been training for it forever, fighter, and I know that you can take whatever it throws at you. Whenever it seems to be more than you can handle, you know I'm just a phone call away. Just hit me up, and I'll be there for you with your favourite bottle of wine, and together we can figure out whatever it is.

    Love and luck to you always.

  • I can't believe that the day we used to joke about—the day of your tying the knot—is finally here. And just like everything else in life, I've seen you give your everything to this wedding as well. Never have I ever seen a bride running around till the last minute, worried more about the canopies than her own makeup. Even after all these years, I'm still in awe of how you manage to multitask so well and yet do everything with such a big smile on your face. You are enough to bring back the energy in a room full of downers. Happiest wedding day to you!
  • Now is the time for you to sit back and relax. The decoration theme is on point, the Bandhani dresses for the bridesmaids have been picked, and all we await now is the muhurat when you will be wed off. So chin up, little warrior! My wedding wish for my best friend is just that whatever you do, whether it is setting up your new home, juggling between your duties as a new bride and your office, or anything at all, you do it with your characteristic smile intact. The world is a brighter and happier place because you exist, and I'll not have it any other way. You now have one more way to show the world what a boss lady you are. Go get 'em, tiger! 
  • "Thanks to this pretty and special bride for bringing my friend out of his dungeon of loneliness. Hahahahahah. Happy married life, buddy. Be good always."
  • My wish wedding wishes for a friend like you is a life filled with joy, love and trust. May you both create endless memories together and never leave each other's side.
  • On this auspicious day of your wedding, I can't help but reminisce about our friendship and how you have always been there with me through thick and thin. You deserve all the happiness in the world my friend and I wish you and your partner all the love and luck in the world.
  • Today, as you tie the knot with the love of your life, I wish your life is filled with love and happiness. May your bond continue to grow stronger with each passing day.
  • I wish you and your partner a lifetime of love and happiness. May you embark on a beautiful journey and always stay blessed and happy together!
  • Congratulations on your special day, buddy! Sending you my heartfelt wedding wish for a lifetime of togetherness, understanding, and love.
  • Congratulations to a friend I hold close to my heart on this special day! May you live happily ever after and have the strongest bond with each other. Wish you a very happy married life!
  • We're glad that this is official and that I can visit you both on the same day without travelling 20 km on an Uber! Congratulations love birds on this new beginning, together forever!

Best Wishes for Newly-wed Couple

Wedding wishes and quotes

Photography: Khushi Film Art

While a simple 'congratulations quote' is enough, it doesn't really say much about how happy one feels for the newlyweds or soon-to-be newlyweds. Similarly, long and sappy wedding wish messages are also not the status quo anymore. Nobody likes to read long wedding messages. Keeping both of these things in mind, we have now come to the conclusion that perfect wedding wishes are short, sweet, but full of depth, and must have a beautiful meaning. Next time someone close to you gets married, use one of these wedding wishes along with wedding gifts, and make them feel special. 

  • On your wedding day, I wish you hearty congratulations and hope you have a wonderful journey ahead as you build a new life together. Have a very happy married life!
