Find the perfect engagement wishes and messages for your friends, brother, sister, your son or daughter, coworkes or anyone you care.

Finding a funny or sentimental card for your newly engaged friend or family member is easy. Figuring out what to write in an engagement card can be much more challenging. Stress not! We've got you covered, from engagement etiquette to the perfect wording for offering engagement wishes to the happy couple.

Engagement Card Etiquette

Engagement cards are customary for anyone wanting to send their well wishes and congratulations to a newly engaged couple. You can send a card whenever you want, but make sure it's in the mail before the actual wedding. We recommend sending engagement wishes soon after the couple share their happy news.

An engagement card can be given with or without a gift. If you are invited to an engagement party in honor of the couple, let the invitation provide some guidance on which is appropriate. A congratulatory engagement card is perfect for a casual gathering of friends at your local bar (especially if you're chipping in for drinks). If you receive a formal engagement invite in the mail from the couple or a host, you probably shouldn't show up empty-handed. Find out if the couple have registered, or choose something for their home that they can both enjoy, like a picture frame or a bottle of champagne (psst, our engagement gift guide has tons of helpful suggestions for every kind of couple).

Whether you're attending a formal party or an intimate get-together, a thoughtful handwritten engagement card is a lovely gesture. Tailor your well wishes to the couple and your relationship with them. Is the card for a family member or a close friend? Opt for sentimental engagement wishes that share your excitement. If the couple are religious, consider including a Bible verse or a quote from the Torah. Engagement cards come in lots of formats, including standard greeting cards from your local stationery shop, homemade cards, small tags attached to gifts and even simple, digitally created engagement messages. There are many ways to personalize an engagement wish. Stuck on what to write in an engagement card? Read on for some ideas about how to write meaningful engagement wishes.

Funny Engagement Wishes

If sentimentality is not really your thing, a funny engagement wish is perfectly acceptable, as long as the joke is not too corny or inappropriate. Jokes that are sarcastic or snarky may be funny when told out loud, but can come across negatively on paper. Take our advice and steer clear of anything that could be considered insulting, like implying that one of them is the “better half" or mentioning anything about it having taken too long (or too little time) to make things official. And any jokes about divorce aren't jokes at all.

Dear Jane and John,

I'm so happy for you two on your engagement! I can't believe we're old enough to be getting engaged. What's next, getting pregnant on purpose? Congrats!

Best wishes,


  • Wishing you a lifetime of great sex...oh, and happiness and love—that stuff is important too. (Use only if this is appropriate given your relationship with the couple.)
  • Congratulations for finally getting the right to officially love and annoy your partner for the rest of your life.
  • Engaged is a synonym for busy. Now you can officially ward off your friends and family from disturbing you because you are 'engaged.' Congratulations!
  • I'm so happy for your and your new ring. I mean, fiancé!

  • Congrats on your engagement! I can't wait to Instagram the wedding!
  • I'm 90 percent happy for you and 10 percent jealous. Congrats!
  • Congrats to a couple whose wedding I actually want to attend!

Engagement Wishes to a Friend

Sending an engagement card to a friend should feel genuine and come from the heart. You can go with classic engagement congratulations or say something more personal in the card if you are writing to one of your closest pals. Use your relationship to guide how personal or cheeky you want to get with your engagement wishes.

Dear Jane and John,

Congratulations on your engagement! I am so happy to call both of you my friends, and I can't wait to celebrate with you.

Best wishes,


  • May you bring each other as much happiness as your friendship has brought to my life—and more!

  • I know your marriage will be as strong and last as long as our friendship. Congrats!

Engagement Wishes for a Brother or Sister

Are you a close-knit family? Make sure your personality comes through in your engagement card message. After all, your siblings know you best. Feel free to make inside jokes or recall some of your favorite moments together. If you're not best buds, typical engagement sayings will still be appreciated. And don't forget to mention the fiance in your note.

It might be hard to share your emotions on the engagement card, but the most important thing is to congratulate the couple and convey joy in your engagement wishes.

What to Write in an Engagement Card From a Bridesmaid or a Groomsman

If you are serving as a bridesmaid or groomsman at the couple's wedding, you're likely related or a close friend of the to-be-wed.

What to Write in an Engagement Card for a Religious Couple

Religious engagement card messages can mention God, tell them of your prayers or quote scripture. Before writing a religious message in an engagement card, make sure you are aware of the couple's beliefs and practices, and customize the message to them. If they aren't too religious or don't worship regularly, something very religious could make them uncomfortable, so tone down the religious elements in the engagement card and focus on your relationship instead. And if you're unsure of what religious message to write, opt for more general wedding words.

Dear Jane and John,

Congratulations on your engagement! Sending you prayers for unending love and happiness and hoping that the love of God fills your hearts as you start your married life together.

Best wishes,



  • May God grant you all of life's blessings and love's joys.
  • “Love is patient. Love is kind….Love never fails." –1 Corinthians 13:4-13
  • “God bless you both on this day with a lifetime of shared love and joy."
  • “God has poured out His love into our hearts." –Romans 5:5


  • Mazel tov! May the joy that is yours today always fill your life.
  • “Ani l'dodi, v'dodi li." (I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine.) –Shir HaShirim/Song of Songs 6:3
  • Mazel tov and l'chaim! Best wishes on your engagement.


  • Mabrouk! (“Congratulations.")
  • Baarak-Allahu laka wa baaraka alaikuma wa jama'a bainakuma fee khairin. (“Let Allah bless you both with love and happiness and many cherished moments of a blissful married life.")

Whether it is your best friend, brother, sister or colleague, congratulate them by writing a humorous quote on a greeting card. Take ideas from this post to make.
