What to Write in a Wedding Card

What to Write in a Wedding Card
A wedding is such an important day, so it’s difficult to think of the right message to write in the card that you know they will treasure forever.

So, what do you write? What should you write? Should you try to be funny? Sweet? Caring?

We’ve put together our favourite captions and verses that we think make light work of the intimidating blank space inside a card. Whether you’re a family friend, mother of the bride, brother or bridesmaid, don’t worry we’ve got you covered.
