Hooray! Wedding bells are in the air, and it’s time to express your feelings for the wonderful bride and groom by writing something memorable in their wedding card.

Depending on your relationship with the happy couple and what mood you want to set, we have carefully compiled a selection of wedding wishes that will either make them laugh with joy, cry with happiness, or possibly ban you from their future events. Just kidding!

We’ve made sure to keep them all as friendly and loving as possible, although who wouldn’t love a chance to poke a little fun at the two love birds on their wedding day? Now, without further delay, let’s get to it. 

Funny Wedding Wishes 

  1. Best wishes to you on your wedding day! If you ever need good marriage advice, it’s probably best to speak to someone else. The last person I helped is currently going through their first divorce. Anything else you need, though, I’m all ears, buddy. 
  2. Massive congratulations on your wedding day. Not only do you have to buy birthday gifts for your other half every year, but now you also have to splash out on anniversary gifts. If there weren’t enough things draining the wallet already, that’s just the beginning. Wait until you guys have kids!
  3. Warmest congratulations to you and your new spouse on your wedding day. Wishing you a lifetime of good times ahead with minimal arguing. I would give you my own marriage advice, but I’m about as knowledgeable about marriage as a goldfish is about long-term planning. 
  4. Marriage is like a minefield that has been meticulously designed by your significant other. There are pieces of treasure scattered everywhere you walk, and you feel more joy with each step you take. Just remember, though, every now and again, things are going to pop up out of nowhere and blow up in your face without warning, so make sure you tread carefully, or you might not have that many years ahead!
  5. You know what they say, “New wife, new life…new strife”. I’m not sure who said that, actually, but it had me in tears. It probably has you in tears, too, but not for the same reason. On that note, I’d like to wish my wonderful friend a very exciting and joyful day, something that will soon seem like a luxury once married life fully kicks in.  

Meaningful Wedding Wishes 

  1. One of the most valuable and rewarding gifts that life has to offer is the chance to live a long and happy life nestled in the warm embrace of your better half. Too many people take things for granted these days and lose sight of the importance of a happy married life and all the lasting joy it brings, not only to the lives of the couple but also to every family member. Remember to cherish every moment you spend together and never stop appreciating one another in this wonderful journey of married life.  
  2. Massive wedding congratulations to you both. As you take time during your honeymoon to reflect on such a wonderful day in your lives, remember that the key to having a successful marriage lies in recreating the overwhelming feeling of love and happiness that you experience at this moment every day from now. To the bride and groom, now husband and wife, we wish you all the happiness life has to offer.  
  3. Warmest wishes to the happy couple and the best of luck navigating your way through your life together as a married couple. Marriages are full of ups and downs, but the important thing to remember is that you have each other’s backs every step of the way, supporting one another through thick and thin no matter what. 

Formal Wedding Wishes

  1. As you step forth into this new and amazing journey of married life, we would like to wish you both a lifetime of endless love and companionship. Have a wonderful day celebrating your beautiful union and your new life together as the bond between you grows stronger every day.

It is such an honor to celebrate this divine moment with you both as you take the first step into your beautiful new lives as husband and wife. Cherish this moment as if it were your last breath, and bask in the love that fills the air today.

  2. Rings on fingers – check. Marriage certificate signed – check. Honeymoon tickets booked – check! Woo-hoo! You made it. Congratulations to the newly married couple on your wedding day. Now that all the formal wedding stuff is out of the way, you guys can finally get out there and create the happy future together that you both deserve. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness beyond measure.

Inspirational Wedding Wishes 

  1. Marriage is a wonderful journey that has no set destination. All riveting twists and turns and spontaneous moments will take you to places physically and mentally that you never even knew existed. You almost get to experience life like a kid again, but this time, with your chosen life partner for every crazy adventure throughout your long and happy marriage. Wishing you an extremely fun-filled future with blessings around every corner for many years ahead.
  2. Today marks the beginning of your most incredible voyage in your wonderful life together as a newly married couple. You now have a shared blank canvas and a paintbrush each to start painting your perfect picture of what a happy marriage looks like. Remember, this is just the beginning, and you both have so much joy that awaits you in the eventful years ahead.  

Wedding Wishes for a New Family Member

  1. Warmest congratulations to you on your wedding day, and welcome to our crazy family! You’ll never find a dull moment when you’re with our gang. We just hope we don’t scare you off with our wacky antics and unique ways of doing things. It’s just the beginning of your marriage, and the last thing we would want to do is send you running for the hills right after saying, “I do.” At least now you know that you’re guaranteed a fun-filled future ahead of you with lots of quirky surprises to look forward to!
  2. Huge wedding congratulations to you, and welcome to the family! We’re so delighted to have such a lovely new family member join our team. Now you have two families that have got your back and will do anything to make sure that you have the wonderful life and happy marriage that you deserve. We’ll always be here for you, and we feel very grateful to be able to call you one of our own now.

Wedding Wishes for Son

  1. Warmest congratulations to our wonderful son and our dear daughter-in-law on your harmonious union. Words can’t explain our feelings right now; it’s hard to pour so much love and emotion into a single short and sweet wedding message, but we just want you to know how overjoyed and proud we are to see you finally tie the knot with your beloved bride.

Wedding Wishes for Daughter

  1. Watching our beautiful daughter and her husband starting their amazing journey as a newly married couple is such a blessing, and we haven’t stopped smiling since we heard you guys were making things official. A good marriage involves making sacrifices and working together to find a balance between your own time and quality time with each other. Once you understand how to do this, everything else falls into place. The love and happiness that you will feel as a result of your efforts is nothing short of spectacular, which is why your mother and I have never grown tired of each other on our beautiful journey.  

Wedding Wishes for Siblings

  1. Mega wedding congratulations to my super-lucky brother and his beautiful new spouse. I can’t believe you guys are really getting married. Our family was convinced that my dear brother would live in his self-proclaimed “bachelor pad” (childhood bedroom at Mom and Dad’s house) playing Xbox until he was in his fifties. Thankfully, he’s finally managed to lock down the one person who has helped him clean up his act and finally escape his man cave. Wishing you both a very happy future together, and I hope my bro doesn’t return to his old habits!
  2. To my beloved sister, I’m not the best at writing wedding wishes and all that mushy stuff, but here goes. I’m truly honored to be here today for what has to be, hands down, the wedding of the century. When I first heard you were getting married, I thought, who would be brave enough to want to marry my crazy sister? But after meeting your other half, I realized you were two peas from the same weird pod. As happy as I am that I now get to claim your old bedroom as my second room, I can’t say I’m not kind of upset about the fact I don’t get to annoy you as often or speak to you when I need someone to talk to. Sending you and your new partner warm wishes on this joyous occasion and hoping that you won’t be a stranger.    

Wedding Wishes for a Friend 

  1. It’s a rare occasion that a person is such close friends with both the bride and groom. To witness both my friends marrying each other is such an honor in itself. Not only do I not have to split my time between seeing you guys now, but I can actually condense it into a single one-location visit! Talk about being efficient.
  2. Note to self – things not to write in a wedding speech as a best man: 1) Non-PC humor (people are very sensitive these days). 2) Stories that include nudity. 3) References to exes. I’ll try to remember this next time someone asks me to do a best man speech, which will probably be never after today’s tasteful performance.


And that just about wraps things up. We hope there’s a wedding wish above that works perfectly for you, whether you are writing to a family member or a friend. Want to make your message feel more personal? Feel free to chop and change things around however you like and customize your wish to suit your needs. And above all, enjoy the wedding celebrations!
