What to write in a 25th wedding anniversary card

Any marriage milestone is always a special occasion that should be celebrated, but there’s something timeless and wonderful about a couple reaching their silver wedding. Despite the many trials and tribulations life will often throw in the way, you’re still together 25 years later – and that means pulling out all the stops for your 25th wedding anniversary wishes!

Silver anniversary messages shouldn’t hold back on the deep romance, willingness to compromise on common ground, or the dry humour that helps hold the best marriages together. Thus, silver wedding wishes should express these to their fullest.

Of course, it’s not the number of words you say, but how you convey the meaning behind them. That being said, it can be tricky to know what to say for your silver anniversary wishes; after all, it only happens once per couple.

But no matter if you’re sending some 25th anniversary wishes for friends, or you’re struggling to get out your 25th anniversary wishes for your long time significant other in just the right way, thortful is here to offer you some helpful inspiration to get your creative juices flowing if you need to write a 25th-anniversary card.

  • With you at my side after all this time, there are no future obstacles we can’t overcome together. Happy anniversary with all my love.

Funny 25th anniversary wishes for your partner

Every couple has their own unique sense of humour, and there’s absolutely no reason you can’t inject some into your 25th wedding anniversary messages to your partner. Here are a few ideas for what to write in a funny anniversary card:

  • We’ve spent 25 years together. Twenty-five years of love. Twenty-five years of arguments. Twenty-five years of trying to understand how marriage works. So well done, after twenty-five years, I think we’ve just about nailed it down.
  • Every day I’ve woken up beside you for these last twenty-five years has been a blessing. Both for the joy you bring, and for the simple fact that you’ve somehow resisted smothering me in my sleep for so long.
  • Happy silver anniversary! I didn’t forget this one!
  • I think you’ll agree that reaching our silver wedding anniversary is quite an achievement. Therefore, I believe a small round of applause is in order.

Funny 25th wedding anniversary wishes for friends

Are the celebrating couple some friends that you’ve known your whole life? Then there’s no reason you won’t be able to get away with some funny silver wedding anniversary wishes as well:

  • I can’t believe you guys are still together after all this time, I thought you’d break up years ago.
  • I’m so giddy that you guys have reached your 25th anniversary. Now, just stay together till your 30th so I can win a bet.
  • The fact you’ve been together for so long is incredible. Tell me, what’s your secret for not murdering each other?
  • Reaching your 25th wedding anniversary is pretty cool, I guess.

Silver wedding anniversary wishes for parents

Any kid knows that seeing their parents reach such a prominent life milestone is an incredible achievement, and a sign of strong family bonds. So help them celebrate the unity of your family with some personalised 25th-anniversary messages from their favourite children:

  • Happy 25th anniversary, mum and dad. We’re so proud of the bond you have and to be able to learn from the best. Sending you all the silver anniversary wishes in the world on this very special day!
  • We know that family life isn’t easy all the time, and sometimes we get into arguments about trivial things, but we couldn’t be prouder to call you our parents and see you reach such a wonderful milestone in your life.
  • We think that it’s great that you’ve reached your silver wedding anniversary, which is why we got you this card. Naturally, we didn’t get you any presents, seen as you already have the daily gift of our company instead.


With these examples at hand, you should be able to craft the perfect 25th wedding anniversary wishes for your partner, friends, or loved ones, to help them celebrate this truly special day.
