Wedding Cards

We like nothing better than a joyful celebration of love! Our wedding cards cover a range of styles, from sweet and quirky, to colourful and bright, to elegant.

Wedding card dos and don’ts

  • It’s such a special and public occasion; you certainly don’t want to make any mistakes. So, what’s ok and what’s not?
  • Do address the card to the couple as a pair. They will read it together, so don’t just address it to your friend.
  • Don’t put insider jokes on wedding cards. This card is for the couple, so don’t exclude either of them.
  • Do be sure to spell both names correctly.
  • Do be as heartfelt and authentic as you can. Your message will join with the others to help create a beautiful container of love for the ceremony.

Etiquette questions

Is it ok to send a card beforehand or should I bring it to the wedding? Either is fine. You’ll probably find a wedding card box on the gift table.

Can you put cash in a wedding card? Yes, it’s quite OK to put money in the card; in many cultures, money is the preferred gift.

Is it OK to give a gift card for a wedding? Yes. If the couple has a gift registry, then a gift card for that store will be delightfully received.

How much money should you give at a wedding? There’s no one answer, and it depends on your budget. If the couple has a gift registry, check the cost of the gifts. You’ll probably find that the average wedding gift costs around $100, so go from there. If you are close to the couple, give more.

How long do I have to send a card after the wedding? Traditionally you have a couple of months after the wedding to send wedding presents and cards.
