Wedding Messages for Parents

If your mom or dad is getting married (or remarried) you might have some mixed feelings about it. But one thing you can be sure of is you’ll want to send a card. And whether you think it’ll be a special occasion or aren’t too keen seeing a parent find happiness with someone is an important moment that.

So use your wedding message to say how pleased you are for your mom or dad. Maybe talk about or mention a funny anecdote or how long you’ve been waiting for him/her to find Mr/Mrs. Right. Just as long as you show your parents how happy you are they’re getting married.

  • Congratulations mom! I couldn’t be any happier for you

Wedding Messages for a Coworker

There’s a good chance you’ll be invited to a wedding from a colleague or coworker. Writing a wedding card for them can be a little testing though, especially if you don’t know them that well. Much of what you say will depend on your relationship with them.

If you aren’t particularly close then avoid any phrases or wording that is too emotional or express ‘love’, as that could be inappropriate. Stick to more formal and general wording. If they’re a close colleague that you know we’ll then you can treat the writing a message similarly to one for a regular friend.

  • Thank you ever so much for inviting me/us. Have a wonderful day
  • Its been a pleasure to get to know you at work and it’s now an honour to be invited to your wedding. My best wishes
  • Looking forward to celebrating your happiness and love. Congratulations

  • Enjoy a spectacular day and all my best wishes for a loving future as man and wife

bridal shower wishes and messages

Struggling with what to say in a bridal shower card? Need help finding the perfect words for a wedding shower message. Fear not! Keep reading for a huge selection of bridal shower wishes and quotes that are ideal for congratulating the bride-to-be or couple.

A bridal shower is now a very common tradition that most brides have. It is a chance for friends and family to gather and celebrate the upcoming wedding and ‘shower’ the soon-to-be married with gifts. It’s also a nice break from the often hectic wedding preparations that are going on! So if you’re a fairly close friend or relative of the bride it’s likely you’ll be invited to the shower (assuming there is one). But that means you’re probably going to want to bring a gift and card.

That’s where things can get tricky. Knowing what to say in a bridal shower card and what gift to bring isn’t easy. The type of shower will play a role – is it solely for the bride or is it a couples wedding shower – and then what sort of celebration is it. Relaxed? More formal? Do your research with the planner first so you can tailor your card/gifts properly.

As for what to say – congratulate her or them, give your best wishes for a wonderful day and happy life together, maybe include a compliment about the wedding or dress as well as a few words of encouragement for a potentially nervous bride. Reminiscing on good times you’ve shared with both or one half of the couple is always a good choice for a written message, and if you’re close enough and know their sense of humour then something funny or a small joke should be received well. Just generally be positive about the big day and the love that will be celebrated.

For a whole range of examples for every scenario, from heartfelt and funny to religious and sentimental, have a look at the wedding shower wishes below.
