Messages for wishing congratulations on an engagement include, "All the best with the wedding plans and have a lovely life together," and "Congratulations to the beautiful couple. What wonderful news." Positive advice like, "Love one another and you will be happy" also applies.
Engagement messages should be positive and personally relevant between the sender and the couple. Poetry, quotes or sayings can be used to enhance the message. Messages may be delivered via toast, card, letter, speech or e-mail. Cards should be sent before the wedding. Gifts are not required for congratulations wishes with the exception of an engagement party.
