The Complete Guide to Handmade Wedding Day Cards

Congratulate the happy couple with the perfect handmade wedding card!

The wedding – a perfect occasion to send a card, and what better way to show you care than with a handmade card? Whether personalised or truly bespoke, a handmade wedding card is a beautiful way to celebrate this life changing event.

Whether it is a luxury boxed card overflowing with ivory lace, or a simpler message wishing the couple well, a handmade wedding card is so much more thoughtful than something off the shelf.

Finding the perfect card can be tough, so here at Decorque we have put together this guide to make it as easy as possible to find the perfect card, depending on the recipient.

What to Write in a Wedding Card

Find below our favourite messages to write in a wedding card:

“We are excited to see you two become a family!”

“I’m glad to congratulate you on such an important and meaningful event.”

“May your joining together bring you more joy than you can imagine!”

“I wish you success in your new titles, bride, groom, husband, wife, and any more you will pick up over the years together.”

“I am wishing you the best of things in your marriage. I am confident that you two will be a blessing to each other and to those who you meet along your journey together.”

“I am glad to be a part of your wedding day, and I am looking forward to seeing what comes from you two.”

“Congratulations! Thank you for letting us be part of your special day.”

“We are praying that God guides you in your new adventure. May God pour out blessings on you two.”

“Marriage is a chance to be an example of the love that our creator has shown us.”

“We are so sorry we can’t attend your wedding. God bless you both!”

“You two are already blessed, but we wish you continued blessings and a lifetime of joy together.”

“This one wedding day is a short celebration of how you two get to live the rest of your lives. Keep celebrating long after the wedding.”

“Marriage is an adventure. It’s up to you guys how much fun you will have. Don’t forget to keep the adventure fun.”

“Weddings are short and sometimes overrated. Marriage is long and challenging. But a marriage is also one of the most fulfilling things you can do in your life.”
