Oh no, you’re late! You’ve forgotten to wish someone a happy wedding or send them a wedding card with your best wishes.
Now what do you do? Can you send them late or belated wedding wishes?
The answer is: yes!
You might be a little late but that shouldn’t stop you wishing the happy couple all the best.
You will have to make some mention of being a bit late to though. Saying sorry and explaining why you are belated with your congratulations will have to make up part of your message.
But even after the wedding is long over you can still send a card or note with your congratulations.
You may be worried there’s some sort of time limit. Like if it’s over a week since the wedding then it’s rude to send a card.
Honestly, there isn’t really anything like that. Obviously if it’s something like 9 months or over a year then it might be a bit odd.
But if it’s just a short time that you’re late by then you shouldn’t worry. Apologize in your note for being tardy but that will be enough.
So if you’re a bit late or slow to send your congratulations to the happy couple use these belated wedding wishes
