humorous and funny wedding card messages

If you’re close to the bride or groom and know them to have a good sense of humour, then a funny wedding card message may be the perfect antidote to the usual boring and cliche’d sayings that they will be receiving from everyone else. Coming up with something witty and clever, or using an in-joke that you’ve had with the couple for a long time can make your card stand out from the crowd and show you’ve taken the time to think of something more meaningful than the usual wedding wishes.

Putting a smile on the newly wed couples face or giving them a laugh can be extremely rewarding, and using some of the funny wedding card messages we’ve provided below, either directly or as a basis for your own message, will help to make the day extra special.

Warning! If you’re unsure if something funny or amusing is suitable for the couple you’re sending your card to, don’t risk it. The last thing you want is them reacting badly or thinking it inappropriate.
