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 wishes cards to couples on their big day.

  • Personalise 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, wedding 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 to Write on a Wedding Card

Is writing "Congratulations" going to be enough? Well, maybe, but it all depends on the relationship you share with the couple. If they are your close friends or relatives - a mere "congratulations" might not work but in case they are your colleague or distant acquaintances, then your "congratulations" or "best wishes" will go a long way. To help you figure out what to write on wedding cards without any fuss, we have curated a list of wedding wishes that you can pick from depending on the type of wedding wishes.
