Wedding Cards

Congratulate a couple on their wedding day

Wedding cards are typically sent to congratulate and celebrate a couple on their marriage. They serve as a formal way to express well-wishes and share in the joy of the occasion. In addition to serving a practical purpose, wedding cards can also be seen as a symbol of love and support for the newlyweds. By taking the time to select a card, write a personal message, and send it off to them in the post, the sender is demonstrating their affection and commitment to the couple.

Wedding cards can also serve as a way to convey important logistical information about the wedding ceremony, such as the date, time, and location of the event, as well as any relevant RSVP details. The tradition of sending wedding cards invitations dates back to the Victorian era in England. Prior to that time, it was more common for couples to simply announce their marriage publicly through a newspaper advertisement or by word of mouth.

However, with the rise of the middle class in the 19th century, the practice of sending printed wedding invitations became more widespread. Wedding invitations were often elaborately designed and printed on high-quality paper, and they were seen as a way for the couple to showcase their social status and wealth.

As printing technology improved and became more accessible, the practice of sending wedding cards expanded to include not just formal invitations, but also congratulatory cards and other forms of correspondence related to the wedding. Today, there is a wide variety of wedding cards available, ranging from simple and traditional to elaborate and personalised.

Now cards are so accessible to everyone, we seem to get a card for every occasion. It’s nice to receive a card because it does make us feel like someone cares when we receive a card. But equally, when you receive so many similar cards, they can get a little bit boring too. As, much as we love to receive them from your loved ones, it would be nice to get something a little bit different.
