Some sample graduation wishes include "Congratulations," "Happy Graduation Day," "What an impressive achievement," "Caps off to you, Graduate! Well done" and "This calls for celebrating," notes Hallmark.com. Those who want a more formal greeting can use a wish, such as "Warmest congratulations on your graduation" or "Congratulations on your well-deserved success."
A simple wish such as "Congratulations" is useful when people do not know the graduate well, recommends Hallmark.com. Adding a few more words, such as "What a proud day" or "Bravo" help add some warmth to and personalize the greeting.
Writers can use the greeting to help the graduate look into the future by using wishes, such as "You're going to be a star" and "You deserve to see your dreams come true." Greetings that are more formal include "Best wishes for all your tomorrows" and "Can't wait to see where life will take you next."
Guests to the graduation party can focus their wish on sharing the day. Examples of wishes include "We're thrilled to be celebrating your graduation with you" and "So happy we could be here to watch you graduate with honors." Those unable to attend the graduation can add statements, such as "Wish we could be there to see it" and "Thinking of you with love and pride on your graduation day."
