Congratulations Letter Before the wedding

Wedding_congratulations_RSVP

Here's a sample letter based on our advice for the content of a wedding congratulations letter sent to the couple before the wedding date. We’ve included the notes that it is compiled from as a guide and a short paragraph to answer the RSVP from the wedding invitation. The examples below cover either the acceptance of the wedding invitation, or your decline of attending the wedding invitation (there is little difference, as you will still want to convey your best wishes to the happy couple).

Notes Before Writing The Wedding Congratulations Letter

  • Congratulations on announcement of wedding
  • Pleased to hear of the marriage
  • Made for each other/fit together
  • Wonderful life poem
  • RSVP
  • Best wishes for the future

 

Sample Wedding Congratulations Letter - Accepting the Invitation

 

Mr Tom Smith and Miss Helen Jones,
12 High Road
Sometown
AA1 2BB

 

Dear Tom and Helen,

Congratulations on your forthcoming wedding, I write to send you my very best wishes for your wedding day and for your future together. I am so pleased to hear of your wedding announcement, I know that you two were made for each other and fit together like two peas in a pod.

I came across this wonderful little poem by Karl Fuchs that I wanted to share with you.

  Congratulations on your marriage,
Have a wonderful life!
You are two terrific people,
Now teamed as man and wife.

A team with blessings like yours
Will live a life you'll cherish;
You’ll find happiness everywhere,
For your love will never perish
 

Thank you for your invitation to the wedding, I am please to let you know that George and I will be attending the wedding. We are both looking forward to sharing your big day and celebrating this most happy time in both of your lives.

Sending you our very best wishes for your wedding day and for your future together.

Your friend always,

Sarah

Thank you for your invitation to the wedding, I very much regret that George and I will be unable to attend the wedding. [Insert reason here if you wish to explain]  We are both sad not to be sharing your big day and celebrating this most happy time in both of your lives.

Sending you our very best wishes for your wedding day and for your future together.

Your friend always,

A wedding congratulations letter should be personal and unique to you. Standard wedding cards will provide a reply to the invitation, but are never as personal as a hand written letter to reply to the wedding invitation when you wish to send your congratulations to the couple for their wedding day.

A wedding congratulations letter will convey your heart-felt wishes personally to the couple and gives you the opportunity to fully express your happiness on the announcement of their wedding in a hand written form of wedding congratulations letter.
