Celebrating an anniversary, be that your own with your partner or congratulating someone you know, is a fun and happy time. The marking of a milestone in a relationship indicates the love the two people have for one another and celebrates that bond. No matter if it’s the first or 50th anniversary they’re always a cause for celebration.
If it’s your own anniversary then you will probably be getting your significant other a gift and card. Knowing what to say or write in your anniversary card can be a bit difficult though.
Expressing your love for him or her and making it touching and heartfelt without being too cheesy is harder than it sounds. A good way to do so is reflect back on happy memories or try to sum up your feelings in a quick sentence.
If you’re sending your wishes to a couple who are celebrating their anniversary then you can tell them how great a couple they are and that you admire their relationship. If it’s a family member or your parents then you can be more personal and perhaps even use an anecdote from their lives. You might also want to consider a funny message if you feel it is appropriate.
Whatever sort of quote you choose to use, if you find yourself struggling with an anniversary message then try some of the examples below. Hopefully they will help you find the right words for the perfect message. You can use them as inspiration or copy them exactly as they are.
