What to Write in a Wedding Day Card for a Friend

Be genuine. Be sincere. Be warm. This is your opportunity to say something heartfelt, with true meaning. Although don’t be afraid to inject a little humour! They’re your friend after all, and the day is all about smiles, laughter and love. Personal touches like short anecdotes or private jokes can be a nice addition, although don’t write anything too lengthy that might leave their other half out!

Here’s a few suggestions to kickstart your imagination on writing in a wedding day card for a friend:

  • Here’s to love and friendship! Congratulations to you both.

  • May you bring each other as much fun, laughter and happiness as you’ve brought to my life over the years.

Your baby! All grown up! It’s enough to have anyone reaching for the tissues.

Whatever your words of wisdom, just make sure you wipe off the tear marks before sealing the envelope!
