Quick Easy Greetings -
What to Write in an Anniversary Card

By Dave Pipitone

How often have you wondered what to write in an anniversary card? Imagine an important anniversary that comes along. Maybe it is a special year for your marriage, a golden wedding anniversary for your parents, friends or other family members. Do you want it to go by without saying something that will touch a heart and make you smile that you shared your love?

An anniversary is a special time to remember and recall the silver and golden moments in a relationship. Many store-bought greeting cards offer words and short poems that are sentimental, flowery, serious and funny. With the price of a paper card as high as six or seven dollars, you want to make sure that it offers the right message to the person receiving your card.

Why It is Important to Write a Personal Greeting

Many times, you may find that the anniversary greeting printed inside the card does not fit what you really want to say from your heart. If you are buying for your spouse, you want to give a card that expresses a heart-felt emotion of love, appreciation and gratitude for sharing life together. Remember, every time you remember your wedding day or the wedding day of others, you receive a unique occasion to communicate how much your partner means to you.
Let's face it. Anniversary cards that don't give your loved one a sense of appreciation risk being thrown away or filed in a big box in the basement. Unless you make a love-connection with your words, all you have is an expensive, store-bought folded piece of paper. Anniversaries come and go, and the one day you live them is the day to communicate your feelings.
Here are two quick greetings that you can write in an anniversary card so that you tell your loved ones what they mean to you.

For Your Own Marriage Anniversary
Just ___ years ago, we exchanged rings, promises and vows with each other. Today, we exchange our love and hearts in a deeper friendship. Thank you for loving me all these years.

For Your Parent's Wedding Anniversary
Dear Mom and Dad, when I was growing up, I was amazed at how you shared your love for each other. Now, I am so amazed at how you share your life with each other through all these years.
Writing a quick personal greeting with your greeting card lets you express loving thoughts. If you find it hard to compose greetings, you can find examples of what to write in an anniversary card on specialized websites. All you need to do is know where to look and adopt the wording.
