If you have a friend who's about to walk down the aisle, ensure your wedding card not only conveys your well wishes, but also features a message that reflects your personality or your history with her. Your message will provide your friend with a card she will cherish as a keepsake.

Turn the card into a helpful resource by adding a message featuring marriage advice. Include titbits such as ways to compromise, how to defuse arguments or ideas for showing appreciation for a spouse. Be sure your friend is typically open to advice and will not be offended by the card.
Lend a touch of romance to the card by selecting a love poem, wedding-themed quote, love-song lyric or relationship-related lines from a movie to add to your message. Add a personal note about why the quote or lyric reminded you of the couple. If desired, write the poem or quote on a separate piece of card stock and slip it inside the card so the couple can frame it or place it on a refrigerator or notice board.
Bring a smile to your friend's face or a happy tear to her eye by incorporating a humorous or touching anecdote about your friendship with her. Remind her of the discussions you had about love and marriage as children, or recount a hilariously disastrous double date. Tell her how these experiences helped prepare her for this special day.
Take the couple down memory lane by telling a story from their relationship. Recount their first impressions of each other, the unusual way they met or the moment your friend told you she was in love.
If you're unable to attend your friend's wedding, use the wedding card as a way to explain your absence. Write a message that offers your apology and the reason you won't be at the ceremony. Add your well wishes for the couple and perhaps extend an invitation to get together after their honeymoon so your friend can fill you in on her special day.
