Tips on what to write inside for an engagement card message

Here are a few things to consider that will help you get started on crafting the perfect engagement card message:

Your relationship with the couple. If you are close to the couple, feel free to share a funny anecdote about the couple’s relationship or a special memory you share with them. If you are not that close, but you want to show support, then a sincere message congratulating them and wishing them the best for their upcoming wedding will work.

The couple’s personalities. If you are close to the couple and know them both well, you can share how the couple’s personalities complement each other by using specific examples. Express how perfect they are together. Thinking about the couple's personality will also help you choose if you should go for a funny message, a heartfelt message, or something in between!
