When a loved one, friend or acquaintance is tying the knot, a wedding greeting card is called for. But sometimes the cards on the shelf fail in expressing your sentiments to the happy couple. In this case, make your own greeting card for the newlyweds. There are many ideas that will give you the perfect words for a homemade greeting card.
All newlyweds hope that they will have a long and lasting marriage. So using a saying that expresses that you share the same wish for the couple is a good choice. Write "Congratulations" on the front side on the top of the card. Inside of the card, write: "Wishing that the two of you share a long and happy life filled with the greatest things in life." Or say, "Best wishes for a lifetime of peace and happiness." Or "Best wishes. Here's hoping that you have a life filled with nothing but happiness."
Another option is to use a general wish in the greeting card. Tell the couple what you wish for them. Write congratulations. Then say something like: "I wish that you dance together on your grandchildren's wedding day." Or "I wish that the two of you are showered in good luck", "I wish that your house is filled with love and happiness always." Or say "I wish you the most beautiful things that life has to offer."
If you want a sweet and sentimental saying, opt for a blessing for the wedding card. Write congratulations. Then use "May God bless the two of you." Or something like, "May God bring you happiness and joy the rest of your lives", "May God pour his blessings on you both." Or "May God bless your new lives together", "May God bring you peace and love the rest of your life," or "May the joining of you bring you more happiness and love then you can imagine."
If you don't have a close relationship with the happy couple, stick to a general statement of congratulations. A general statement is a good choice for a co-worker or acquaintance. Use a saying like: "Congratulations and best wishes", "Congratulations to the both of you", "Congratulations on your marriage, or Congratulations on your new life together." Or use their names in the greeting like: "Congratulations to Joe and Maria."
