What to Say in a Wedding Card

Figuring out what to say in a wedding card can be a challenge. You want to be thoughtful, but you also want to keep it short and sweet. If you are giving money as a gift, the card is important, as it will be the only item the happy couple receives from you that reflects your personality. Gather your thoughts before putting pen to paper. When you've thought through what you want to say and how you want to say it, it will be a lasting memory to give to the couple on their special day.

Personal Touch
For those of you with a flair for writing, it's a nice gesture to include a homemade poem or a few thoughts about the couple on their wedding day. You can also add in a picture or two, depending on your relationship with the couple. If you want to add in a special something but don't want to write a little ditty of your own, try looking up famous quotes from authors, films or songs that would be fitting for the occasion.

Main Themes
The main themes you'll want to touch upon in your card before handing it off to the wedding gift table are simple. Make sure you're wishing the couple congratulations, first and foremost. Then you're going to want to include well wishes for a long and happy life together and remind them to always remember their wedding day. Depending upon how religious the couple is, you could also add in religious sentiments. If you want to go this route, you'll want to pick out a card that expresses this as well.

Speak From The Heart
When all else fails, any wedding gift guide will tell you to speak from your heart. The couple already wants you to spend their wedding day with them, so be sure to express your thanks and future happiness to them. If you are close with the couple, anything you say that is heartfelt will be greatly appreciated and remembered.
