Everyday, Always | What to Write in Wedding Anniversary Messages

Wedding anniversaries are truly special occasions. They mark an incredible moment in the lives of two people — the day that they joined their separate lives into one. Whether the couple is celebrating their first year or their fiftieth, their anniversary deserves recognition and celebration. And while this is especially true for the people within the actual relationship, it is a day no less important to the people who love them most.

With so much going on in our individual lives, it can be easy to forget the important moments in the lives of others, especially those occasions that are particularly personal. When you write someone an anniversary card message, you do so much more than say what you feel — you show it.

You show that you care so much about the other person that you not only remembered their anniversary, but you took the time out of your own life to celebrate their happiness.

An Act of Love | Why You Write Anniversary Card Messages

We live in a time where we have never been more accessible to one another. There are thousands of ways to contact the people in our lives, and many of those ways are incredibly convenient. However, even though a text message or an e-mail might be easier on the sender, there’s nothing quite as sincere and thoughtful as handwriting an anniversary card or letter.

With that being said, actually writing your anniversary message can be difficult. People tend to get caught-up in the idea that they have to say everything that’s in their heart. But like love, there’s no such thing as ‘perfect’. All you really need to do is be sincere (and choose a fabulous card, of course).

Luckily, your card-writing-and-choosing soulmate is here for you. We’ve joined our favorite wedding anniversary messages and top greeting card tips together in matrimony — technically it’s a blog post, but that sounds less romantic — so you can learn how to craft the perfect anniversary greetings.

Cheers to the Years! | General Anniversary Wishes 

Sincerity is the key to any greeting card — you need to pick a card that fits the relationship you have with the recipient, and then you have to write a message to match. Take a look at these ideas for anniversary sentiments, organized by the person/people receiving the card.

For Parents

As we grow older, our parents’ wedding anniversaries become more significant in our lives. Your parents’ wedding anniversary is a great time to let them know how much you admire their relationship and all that they have accomplished as a couple. If you have children, feel free to include them in the celebrating — crayon artwork is always a good gift idea for grandparents.

  • Happy Anniversary! I love you both so much and wish you all the happiness in the world. Thank you for being a shining example of a strong marriage and partnership.
  • Mom and Dad, the home you’ve made and your loving commitment to each other have blessed our family in more ways than we can count.

For Your Spouse

Other peoples’ wedding anniversaries are important, of course — but your own wedding anniversary is on a whole other level. Even though you (hopefully) tell and show your partner how much you love them every day, your wedding anniversary is special and definitely a day worth celebrating.

As long as you and your spouse are happy, there’s no wrong way to spend the day — and a handwritten greeting card is a wonderful way to not only express your feelings, but to give your partner a message they can revisit and cherish for years to come. Use these wedding anniversary messages to get you started;

For Friends

It’s a beautiful thing to watch people you care about fall in love. Your friends will surely receive anniversary messages from their families, but messages from friends are seldom expected — and all the more precious. This is especially true if you were lucky enough to witness their wedding, or even be in it! The couple will surely appreciate your thoughtfulness as they celebrate their anniversary. If you need inspiration for an anniversary message for a couple, take a look at some of these examples;

  • From the bottom of my heart, I wish you two the best first anniversary. May this be just the start of your happiness.
  • This first year has been the start of a lifetime of memories and we wish you the best going forwards - today, tomorrow and always. Happy first anniversary!
  • You have shared so much love and laughter over your years together, and I know there will be many more joyful moments in your future. I wish you all the happiness on your wedding anniversary and on every married day to come.
  • Congratulations on another year of falling deeper in love with each other. Happy anniversary!
  • I still remember the times when you wanted to ask her out. It only seems like yesterday! Now with [#] years of marriage under your belt, I’m wishing you a happy anniversary. Here’s to many more!
  • A very happy anniversary to my wonderful friends. I can’t wait for all of the years to come.
  • May your love story never have an end, and may your love for each other grow and grow. Happy anniversary to you both.
  • I’m so happy for the love you two share. We all love you so much and hope you have a wonderful anniversary!
  • [friend’s name], I used to look at you and think, “Someone is going to love you so much.” And when you met [friend’s spouse], I was thrilled to be right. Congratulations to you both!
  • I became friends with you both separately and you’re each so special in your own way – but together, you’re unstoppable. I can’t wait to see what adventures the next year brings!

  • You two are an inspiration to those lucky enough to know you. Happy anniversary.

For Stepparents

Blended families can be complicated. Whether your parent’s remarriage was welcomed or difficult, their anniversary is a perfect time to focus on the positives — and to begin a path toward acceptance. Your parent and stepparent will surely appreciate the gesture of an anniversary card, especially if you include a handwritten and sincere message.

  • The two of you shine with the love you share for each other. May that light get ever brighter on your wedding anniversary and every year that goes by.
  • [#] years ago today, we became a family. Happy anniversary (to all of us)!
  • Today, I am grateful for your strong marriage, and for all of the love you bring to our family. Happy anniversary to you both!
  • Congratulations on your [#] anniversary!
  • May the love you feel for each other on your wedding anniversary grow ever stronger and more fulfilling as the years go by.
  • Between margaritas and our family, I’d say all the best things are blended! Happy anniversary!
  • I hope every day you share together is more beautiful than the last! Happy anniversary.

For a Widower or Widow

Losing a spouse is unimaginably difficult. However, the love that the couple shared is still worth celebrating. More importantly, sending support to the widow/widower on what will probably be a difficult day is a wonderful gesture. It can be hard to find the right words to say to the ‘survivor,’ especially on their wedding anniversary, but even something as simple as a ‘thinking of you’ will surely be appreciated. 

  • "Where we love is home – home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts." - Oliver Wendell Homes Snr.
  • Thinking of you both on your wedding anniversary.
  • You're always in my thoughts, but especially so today.
  • Little by little, the sense of loss may ease, but the sense of love never does.
  • We remember your wedding day so fondly, and send you extra love today.
  • Little by little, we let go of loss, but never of love.
  • Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was great love.
  • There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they are gone, the light remains.
  • Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside us every day.
  • Time is very slow for those who wait. Very fast for those who are scared. Very long for those who lament. Very short for those who celebrate. But for those who love, time is eternal.
  • “Love is space and time measured by the heart.” — Marcel Proust

For Milestones

Every wedding anniversary is special, but there are some that are particularly cherished; the 1st, 10th, 25th, and 50th. Each of these important anniversaries holds significance for a couple — they represent all the ups and downs, challenges and triumphs that the recipients have been through in their marriage. Take a look at these milestone anniversary wishes for a couple;
