Personalised Wedding Wishes
Send wedding wishes on a self-designed card
A wedding is always very special and everyone who knows the bride and groom wants to send their personal congratulations. While wedding guests usually congratulate the newlyweds immediately after the ceremony, when sending cards, some creativity is needed. What do you write in a wedding card and how do you give it a personal touch? We'll show you a few ideas for designing a personalised wedding card and how you can express your congratulations on it.
Create a wedding card with a personal touch
Your thoughtfully chosen words of congratulations need the right stage: a personalised wedding card that captures your sentiments and brings a smile to the bride and groom's faces.
Nostalgic wedding card
You've known the bride and groom for a long time and have seen them grow in love together? If so, you’re likely to have a nice or funny picture of them, perhaps from a trip with friends or their first family celebration together. This is the perfect base for a personal wedding card with sentimental value. To add a nostalgic feeling to your photos, try using a sepia filter or perhaps convert it to black and white.
Photo of friends holding plaques or signs.
Create an original wedding card by holding your messages on a sign as you take the photo. Whether alone, in pairs or as a group: write your congratulations on some signs and pose for the camera. Then take a group photo of you and your friends holding up the signs.
The photo can be printed full size on the front of the wedding card. Alternatively, you can combine individual photos of all your friends with their signs to create a collage. To do this, simply select the full-screen layout, upload the photos and insert them on the front of the card using the ‘dynamic’ layout. There's space on the inside or back to sign or add a message.
Personalise your card with a picture and text
At ifolor, there is a wide range of design templates to create your own personalised wedding card. There is something for everyone, from simple, elegant, classic, playful or natural. Simply select the design you want, upload your picture and add your text – and you’re done. Choose between typing some text on the inside or back of the card in any font and colour or write it by hand later.
Use a folded card as a wedding card, as it offers you extra space on the inside pages for your congratulations on the wedding and will be sent to you with a matching envelope.
Congratulations, quotes & wedding sayings for the greeting card
In addition to the usual wedding wishes, such as health, happiness and eternal love, suitable wedding sayings and verses can be added to your personal lines to make the congratulations card more individual. To make it easier to find a suitable saying, you can decide in advance what kind of saying you would like to include in your wedding card. Romantic, witty, modern - you can find lots of wedding sayings and verses online. We have collected a few examples for your inspiration.

Classic wedding verses
What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?
The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips
(John Boyle O’Reilly)
A marriage makes of two fractional lives a whole;
It gives two purposeless lives a work,
And doubles the strength of each to perform it.
It gives to two questioning natures a reason for living
And something to live for.
It will give new gladness to the sunshine,
A new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth
And a new mystery to life
To a beautiful tomorrow
To a future without
Pain and sorrow
To a life full of promise
As husband and wife
I hope you live in bliss
