Do you have a close family member or friend getting married? A great way to let a bride or groom know you are thinking of them is to send a wedding card. A wedding card offers a thoughtful, personal way to send your congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple.
While the thought of crafting a wedding card can be overwhelming, writing a great wedding card doesn’t have to be hard. Outlined below are some helpful tips for writing a heartfelt wedding card.
The Importance of Sending a Wedding Card
Although purchasing a wedding gift is a nice gesture, it is still important to send a thoughtful card. Wedding cards provide a great platform for congratulating the happy couple and adding some thoughtful words. Additionally, a heartfelt card will add a personal touch to your wedding gift.
Handwrite a Message on Your Card
While you can opt for a card with a preprinted message, handwriting your card will allow you to get more creative. As tempting as it is to get a generic card and simply sign your name, it’s important to add your own words to express some personal sentiment. If you can, choose a card with a blank space so that you can write your own message.
To ensure your card looks as nice as possible, you might want to consider writing your message on a scrap piece of paper a couple of times before writing it directly on the card. When you go to write your message on the card, it is best to use blue or black ink so that your note can be clearly read.
When Should I Send a Wedding Card?
When you give the couple your wedding card will depend on the specifics of the situation. For example, if you won’t be able to attend the wedding, it is best to send your gift and card before the wedding date. Conversely, if you are attending the wedding, it is usually best to give the card and your gift to the couple at the reception. If for some reason, you forget to give your wedding card to the couple at the reception, you can send it in the mail a week or two after the wedding.
Types of Messages to Write in a Wedding Card
When writing a message in your wedding card, be sure to always keep your note positive. Some messages you may choose to write in your card include:
- Every time we are around you, your affection and love for each other are apparent. I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
- Congratulations on your marriage—may your love continue to grow.
- Thank you for inviting us to celebrate your marriage with you. We look forward to watching your journey with one another.
- Best wishes to the two of you—we wish you all the happiness and joy in the world.
These are just a few thoughtful messages that you can use as inspiration or add a personal touch to.
