On an average, over 10 million people get married every year in India. No wonder we go blah while writing wedding wishes for someones’s wedding card. Its pretty common as the statistics show. Very likely, we end up on the internet to find some good, gracious or quirky stuff to write on that card. That’s alright because that’s exactly what we have here for you.

Although its best if you write an honest positive message. There are some ground rules that you need to keep in mind before you start to write down your wedding wishes.

  • Is the person getting married your acquaintance/casual friend/sibling/best friend?
  • When you’ve narrowed the type of relationship you have with bride/groom or both, think of a good memory with them.
  • The location or theme (if any) of the wedding so you can add some fun characteristic to the wedding wishing card.

Now that you’ve established what kind of relation you share with the person getting married, you can decide whether it’ll be a straight congratulating wish or some funny humorous message that you’d be writing. Broadly, we can divide the genre of the wedding wishes into few categories:

Formal Wishes

  1. “Congratulations on your marriage, have a wonderful life.”
  2. “God bless you both for the rest of your married lives. Congratulations!”
  3. “Best wishes for your future and may it be filled with happiness and love.”
  4. “Congratulations on your big day. best wishes forever.”
  5. “May the years ahead filled with lasting love and prosperity.”
  6. “Wishing you all the best as you begin a new journey together.”
  7. “Wishing you strength and longevity to your married lives.”
  8. “Congratulations on your wedding day Mr. & Mrs.!”
