What to Write in an Engagement Card
The key to writing the perfect message in a card is to express your genuine feelings. You can be a friend or a family member, and your wishes will vary accordingly. Follow these tips to create the perfect message in a card:
1.) Family Members: As a family member, the key is to have your personality show in the engagement card message. You can recall your best moments with them. Make sure to mention the fiancé in the message. As a parent, it can be quite hard to share your true emotions in verse. Make sure that you congratulate the couple and let them know how you feel. It is also recommended to add a personal touch to make the card more special.
2.) Friends: If you are a friend, your message should come from your heart and should feel real. Traditional engagement wishes can work just perfectly. If you are close pals, you may also write something personal.
3.) Funny Wishes: There are always friends who cannot be sentimental like others. If that is the case with you, you can try a funny approach. Make sure the joking isn’t inappropriate. Keep in mind that sarcasm is difficult to pull off in written form. Bounce your humor off others to gauge the appropriateness of your message.
