Marriage wishes are a problem for many of us. What to say or write when we want to convey our feelings without sounding trite?
Of course, how we choose to express ourselves will depend very much on our relationship to the happy couple. Whether they are close family, good friends, work colleagues, or just acquaintances, will influence our choice of suitable words. We need to decide between humor, advice or just simple good wishes.
Life Daily has chosen its top 19 marriage wishes, which we think will cover most situations.
There are 10 options each for spoken or written wishes.
