Shop Congratulatory Wedding Cards Before It's Too Late

Don't be caught in the midst of wedding season without stocking up on a few of these stationery staples.
by Andrea Fowler

We know how it goes: From requesting off work, arranging travel and picking out the perfect outfit, sometimes you forget about getting a card until you're already on your way. Our suggestion? When you send in your RSVP, start searching for the perfect card that will make the happy couple feel extra special. Whether you're congratulating your best friend from college or a close family member, we did all the shopping for you. Check out our favorite cards below. (And don't worry—when you open up the card and become intimidated by all that white space, we got your back there too.)

  1. Words of Excitement

    Gold foil congratulatory wedding card

    Nothing says, "I'm so happy for you!" quite like big, bold gold foil letters. And the (recycled!) polka dot envelope will be sure to stand out from the crowd. Bonus: This peppy card is a great fit for any wedding party, from engagement parties to honeymoon homecomings.
