Point to Remember
It is better to steer clear of humor in the wedding card wordings if you do not share a very close relationship with the couple.
Wedding cards lend a special feel to the wedding day, don't you think? The sentiments that a person writes in those cards get carried over for years and lets the couple know how much they are loved. It also lets them keep their special day in their memory, so much so that every time they look at the wedding card messages in the card, it transports them to their wedding day and gives them immense pleasure and happiness. Wedding messages also allow a person a medium to write what they want to convey - something that they might not have done in person.
But it's understandable if one cannot think of things to write in a wedding card or what to say in a wedding card. It is, after all, not something that one does everyday. Which is why this article will help. So go through the following sections for an understanding of how to word a wedding card, and you can also use and draw inspiration from them.
How to Write the Card
It might seem like a gargantuan task when you set out to write the card, but it's not really difficult if you understand the basic concept behind it. Granted we are not all prolific writers, used to writing prose upon prose of beautiful poetry, but anything that comes from the heart is bound to be beautiful.
Some Important Guidelines
- Think about the relationship that you share with the couple or the bride/groom. This should be the basis of writing the card - whether it should be a formal card or there can be scope for some humor.
- Think of a special memory that you share with the couple and try to include that in the card. This will give it a very personal touch.
- Whether to use humor in the card at all or the degree of humor to be used in a card can get tricky. Make sure that you're close enough to the couple to write something that borders on the lighter side of marriage.
- The wedding message does not have to be long. In fact, a 4 - 5 line message is just as effective if written well.
