Whilst every anniversary is a cause for happiness, a 1st wedding anniversary really is that little bit extra special.
Getting married is such a huge commitment and marks the coming together of two people who truly love one another. So reaching that first year of union is a major moment for the happy couple.
In terms of length or time it may pale in comparison to more substantial anniversaries – 20th, 40th, 60th etc. – but it doesn’t diminish its importance.
So if you know of a couple celebrating their 1st anniversary you will want to wish them all the best.
But how do you and congratulate someone on their 1st anniversary? What do you say to wish them a happy 1st anniversary?
Use the example wedding anniversary wishes and quotes below to help you find the perfect words to show the couple just how pleased you are for them on their 1st anniversary.
