75 wedding wishes to send off the happy couple

Make their special day even sweeter with one of these thoughtful messages.

If a friend or loved one is tying the knot, there’s plenty to be done in advance of the big day.

First, you must figure out what to wear to the event. Formal? Casual? Next comes the gift. It’s important to buy just the right gift to celebrate the nuptials and show how truly happy you are that these two people are joining together in matrimony.

Beyond that, it’s essential to send the couple off with your heartfelt congratulations and happy wedding wishes.

If you’re a wordsmith, box checked. However, if coming up with the right words to express your joy doesn’t come easy, we’re here to help with this collection of wedding sentiments to celebrate the most special of occasions.

In the list below, you’ll find short messages that capture the spirit of love, wedding wishes for friends, family and loved ones, as well as religious sayings to use in a card, text, or Instagram post.

For something simple, try, “Two rings, one heart. Congratulations!”

Or if you’d like a message that speaks to your admiration of the couple, write, “I wish I knew all the right words to express how much you both inspire me with your love, your dedication and the joy you spread to everyone around you.”

For a friend? “Friends forever, together always. I’m honored to be included in your wedding day.”

Whichever sentiment you choose will leave a lasting impression and — pardon the pun — is sure to be the icing on the cake.
