We all love a wedding.
The love, the laughter, the great company, the food, the speeches, the dad-dancing and, of course, the champagne.
When we've sent our invitation response and sorted travel arrangements, the hotel, our outfits and the perfect gift, that leaves us with one last thing... the card. A small but very significant gesture. A way to express our congratulations, love and gratitude for being a part of the couple's big day.
Yet, many of us also hit that point where it seems wedding fever has truly taken hold and every other weekend a friend or family member is saying 'I do!'. So, sometimes being original can be hard. If you've reached that point, not to worry, we've collated a whole host of message suggestions for you to use in your wedding card.
"Sending best wishes to two wonderful people as you build your life together."
"Welcome to the family [name]! We couldn't be happier for you both. Your greatest adventure has just begun!"
"Thank you for letting me/us share your special day. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness".
"May your married life together be filled with love, laughter, smiles, understanding and faithfulness".
"Congratulations you two love birds. May the joy you experience on this special day continue to grow and grow".
"We're delighted to be able to share this day with you both. A perfect match. Here's to the happy couple!"
"Take care of each other in this journey called life. It's a blessing to have someone to love and someone who loves us in return."
"Today we add another member to our family. We are so happy to share this very special occasion with you. Congratulations!"
