So, yet another one of your friends or relatives recently got engaged, huh? ('Tis the season, after all.) Instead of making a present for the newly betrothed an addendum to your already-miles-long upcoming holiday shopping list, celebrate with something simple (and just as sentimental)—an engagement congratulations card.
Yes, you're not obligated to buy an engagement gift for the latest to-be-wed in your life (praise). However, if you still want to send your best wishes in the form of a few post-engagement goodies, go the extra mile and toss in a curated card with your own personal message scribbled inside. And, for those who scoff at snail mail, wait until you see the engagement card ideas we have in store that rival any present, hands down.
Just in time for the holidays (read: engagement season), we come bearing 19 pre-wedding celebratory notes that both the sending and receiving ends will love. There's no shortage of punny picks, perfect for the humorous couple. Take Party Mountain Paper's note, adorned with a drawing of love-song extraordinaire Adele and lyrics from "Someone Like You" for the congratulatory message. Or, channel millennial-speak through La Croix-inspired stationery from Paper Source. If you're close with the soon-to-be-bride, play up her new sparkler via Idlewild Co.'s fitting "OMG" card. Seen this engagement coming for ages? Poke fun at the pair with a pretty-in-pink "At last" congrats note. And, finally, for those who just want the most straightforward route, merely opt for a money card with "Congratulations" plastered across the front.
The proof is in the stationery—keep scrolling to see a few of our favorite engagement congratulations cards, all priced at $7 or less. Pro tip: keep this page bookmarked in preparation for an explosion of social media ring selfies this winter (don't say we didn't warn you).
