What to Write in an Anniversary Card to Husband or Wife

What to write in an Anniversary Card

Pondering what to write in an Anniversary Card to your husband or wife? Need a little help? A little inspiration?

I’m not surprised.  Be it for your wife, husband or for a member of the family, even friends, it can be really tricky to come up with the right words to put down in ink.

You want to get it right, for your message of love  to be meaningful, romantic, personal but not cheesy, overly sentimental or naff.

But it really doesn’t have to be complicated, tricky and there is no need to be tongue tied (should that be pen tied?!)) Sometimes the simplest messages are the best.  It probably goes without saying that “I love you”  would most likely be very welcome and does in itself speak volumes.

Happy Anniversary Card

Joyful phrases include classics  which can be written in anniversary cards as they stand or personalised appropriately

“You had me at hello”      Or other such words from a first meeting to each other……

“I love you to the moon and back”     

In our house it takes on a little Buzz Lightyear and becomes

“I love you to the moon, eternity and beyond”  

Stock response….“I love you to the moon, eternity and beyond…and back again”.      

Nothing wrong with Top Love Trumps!!
