Anniversary Messages & Quotes: What To Write In An Anniversary Card

by Verena Hallam

Wedding anniversaries are the ultimate celebration of love, whether you're celebrating your own marriage or someone else's. A thoughtful way to commemorate the day is by giving your partner or the couple an anniversary card and flowers.

Unfortunately, some people opt out of buying cards entirely because they don't know what to write on them. That's why we here at Flowercard are happy to offer a massive list of anniversary messages and anniversary quotes to make your greeting card extra special.

What To Say In An Anniversary Card

What you write in an anniversary card can be influenced by a few factors. Who is the card meant for? Are you celebrating a particular milestone? Do you want your message to be really personal or a bit more generic? If you're having trouble expressing yourself, you can always find a beautiful quote from a poet concerning love, marriage, and anniversaries.

In any case, your card and message should be appropriate for the anniversary you're celebrating. If it's your or your loved ones' 50th-anniversary, for example, it would be odd not to acknowledge it. What's most important, however, is sending happy thoughts and wishing the couple well on their special day.

15 Ways To Wish A Happy Anniversary
