50+ Best Wedding Wishes for Couples, Whether You Know Them Well or Not

Weddings are always a cause for happiness, joy, and togetherness. In the spirit of this positivity, the family and friends of newly-married couples traditionally send well wishes before and after the ceremony. While they’re a breeze for some people to articulate, wedding wishes are, for many, often difficult to craft.

Below are 55+ examples of wedding wishes to inspire your next toast.
