Inspirational Message Ideas to a Newly Wed Couple
Marriage is one of the best things in our lives as what could be better than the promise of getting older together with the person you love? You promised to love and care for each other in sickness and health, and we wish you a happy, long, and fulfilling life together!
We all found in your relationship a source of inspiration that opened our hearts to love. We thank you for sharing your love with the rest of us, and we hope it will always be as strong as it is today!
It comes a day when someone hugs you so tight you forget the pain when your tears are swept away by kisses, and you finally see the light. That light is love, and you radiate it through all your being. You are a lovely couple, an inspiration for us all!
Wedding Well Wishes
Tall, intelligent, honest, rich, and modest are just some of the things on top of the list when looking for a partner for life. Maybe we don’t write them down, but we keep them in mind. But nothing matters anymore when you’ve found YOUR ONE. You two have won the jackpot. It was so apparent on your wedding day!
Too little, too much, not just right, but what happens when someone loves you just enough? Just the way it’s right for you and makes your heart sing with joy? Well, a wedding happens, and congratulations are in order! May you live a happy, long, prosperous life together! You deserve the best!
Sometimes we are afraid to take risks and do what we know is right. Choosing to love, give people a chance (or more), and say “yes” is proof of courage. You both are very courageous and inspiring in your commitment and love. Thank you for having us witness your union, and may you have a happy adventure together.

Wedding Congratulations FAQs
Here are some frequently asked questions about congratulations on your wedding messages and wishes.
1.) Add a heartfelt message personalized to the couple in addition to the pre-printed message on the card to accompany your gift. 2.) Practice writing your message on scrap paper instead of writing it on the card right away — this will enable you to edit and work on spacing. 3.) Use blue or black ink to make your message easy to read.
Falling in love is magical, being in love is wonderful, and spending your life with the one you love is amazing. Wishing you a lifetime of joy and happiness. Congratulations!
If you’re unable to attend the wedding, it’s a nice gesture to send the wedding card and gift in advance of the big day. If you are able to attend, dropping off the wedding card and gift at the reception works well.
