50th Anniversary Wishes and Messages for a Card

A 50th anniversary, so 50 years of marriage or being together, is an amazing milestone to reach. Not many get that far and the commitment it shows is inspiring. 50 years of love, making it through tough times and still having that enduring bond deserves everyone’s respect. An anniversary of this magnitude means you will definitely want to celebrate and send the couple a gift or card. That may not seem like much but some touching or thoughtful 50th anniversary wishes can really add to the occasion. Sharing the celebrations with family and friends, reliving the best times and enjoying a special day is the best way to celebrate a golden anniversary.

So if you are going to be sending an anniversary card and aren’t sure what to write in it then use some of the examples below. You’ll find some great idea for spouses, friends, religious and funny messages and much more.

What to Write in a 50th Anniversary Card

You can follow some of these tips to write your own message if you prefer not to use a prewritten one.

  1. When writing your wishes you might want to consider what you would like to receive if you were in the same position. Putting yourself in the recipients shoes allows you to get better idea of what to say and how it will be received.
  2. If you’re going to be sending a gift with your card then you can mention that or reference it in your message. Perhaps even working it into the wishes if it works.
  3. If you’re going to write a joke or something funny then be absolutely certain before doing so that they won’t be offended by it. Some people will take something like a 50th anniversary very seriously and not think it’s right to joke about. If you’re not sure then avoid doing so just in case. Better to be safe than sorry!
  4. Whilst your message is important so is the card you choose. Take some time to pick out the best one you can find, or if you’re making one yourself be sure it’s not cheap looking it poorly done.
  5. Remember to speak from the heart! Don’t worry too much about not getting the right words. As long as it’s honest and what you truly feel it’ll be great.
