There are many reasons you would want to congratulate someone. When the time comes, will you have the right words? Here are some ideas on the type of sentiments you can write in a congratulations card:
Way to go, graduate!
Set sail for the rest of your life.
Welcome to your new life!
We knew you’d excel. You always do.
Today is reserved for the brightest stars. And you certainly shine!
No one else could have done it as well as you did.
You did it!
Nice going! We knew you’d succeed.
We’re so proud of you.
Here’s to a future as bright as you are.
There’s no stopping someone as bright as you.
You’re a rising star!
May all your dreams come true as you head for your future.
All roads lead to success when you’re involved.
Babies are such a wonderful gift from God.
Enjoy your little bundle of joy.
Congratulations on the newest member of your family.
What babies take away in sleep, they make up for in loveliness.
To the new mom and dad—may every day be as delightful as this one.
Cherish each day of this precious little one’s new life.
All the best to you as you embark on your new life.
Love brought you together. And we’re so glad.
It couldn’t happen to two more wonderful people.

Life starts anew today. Happy new life.
Drink a toast to the happiness that lies ahead.
Today is the first day of the rest of your lives.
The best marriages are between best friends.
Two became one today.
Always search for a reason to celebrate each other.
Here’s hoping your new home is filled with joy and peace.
We’ll miss you in the neighborhood, but we’re so happy you’ve found a new one you love.
Enjoy many happy days in your new place.
Home is where the heart is.
May you enjoy years of good times in your new home.
40 years of marriage is a reason to celebrate!
You made it! 60 years and many, many more!
Marriages like yours are examples to all of us.
You are both shining lights in our lives. We love you.
Congratulations on 50 years of wedded bliss.
You stuck it out! Happy 60th Anniversary.
May you have 40 more wonderful years ahead of you.
To the couple that we all admire.
If you find yourself stumped for exactly the right words, just go with your honest feelings. No one expects you to be a published poet. Just write a sentiment that sounds the way you might talk if you were face to face with the person. Make your card lovely and personal. If you’re making your congratulations card yourself, include a photo of the person when they were younger for a walk down memory lane. If it’s a new graduate, tuck a few dollars inside the envelope to send them on their way.
