Make an impression - play with words.
Nothing is more personal in your special card than words you have written yourself. A poem, a quotation, your own verse, an amusing short story, an in-joke, any joke, a limerick or something as simple as "I love you".

Choose your words carefully and make an impression.

It may be an anniversary/birthday/Christmas, but what are you really trying to say? Think about it. Don't worry if your words aren't 'professional' - it really is the thought that counts!

If you are really stuck, we will be supplying some ideas below to help you. You may choose one of these just as they are for your special card or adapt them to suit your needs.

Wedding Invitations - example wording
For wedding stationery - there are formal conventions but many modern couples prefer a more personal and informal approach.
The invitation is usually sent by the wedding hosts - traditionally the brides parents, but may be the couple themselves, the grooms parents, a remarried parent or even someone else.
Use these as a guide, but it is up to you how formal or informal you want to be - it's your wedding after all!

Wedding Anniversary Cards
Poems and verses

     
  • Congratulations (X & Y) on your (number) glorious years together

  • We are so proud of your amazing achievement. Congratulations (X & Y) on your Xth anniversary

 

The times we've had together
are as seasons of the year,
Sometimes frost and sparkle,
Often summer cheer.

Winds have blown and bent us
Leaves and fruit did fall
whichever way life took us
we were together through it all

Fifty years together
It makes my heart feel glad
that still you love each other
Congratulations, Mum & Dad

  • Your marriage is as lyrical as a song, Congratulations on singing together so long.

  • To my darling (spouse).
    The years are shorter than they seem, when living with you as a perfect team.

 

Congratulations to you both!
Celebrate and cheers!
A silver anniversary,
Twenty-five great years!

 

If you can find a truly good spouse, they are worth more than precious gems. When they speak, their words are wise, and kindness is the rule for everything they say.

And you/we both found one
