Our Wedding Wishes

At our wedding rehearsal dinner, my Mom passed out these little cards to all of our guests with instructions to write a wish on them.  My wife and I received instructions to not read them until we returned home from our honeymoon in Antigua

Well we returned home and read them, but they've been sitting in a decorative jar ever since.  So I had the idea to make a hub sharing these wishes.  Some are sweat, some are funny, but I'm sure they all came from the heart. 

I hope you enjoy reading these as much as we did!

  • Dear Drew & Emily:
    May your marriage bring glory to God and many years of happiness for you! -Natalie
  • Best Wishes, Hope you have a long & happy marriage! - My Grandmother
  • Drew & Emily:
    I hope Antigua was beautiful and fun! You two are such a great couple.  I wish for you both to have a great life & beautiful children someday! I'm glad I was able to be a part of it. - Blueberry
  • For You,
    everlasting happiness throughout the years. - My little sister
  • Emily & Drew,
    May your boat in life be light packed with only what you need: A homely home and simple pleasures; someone to love and someone to love you; a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two.  Enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink, for thirst is a dangerous think. - Jerome Klapka Jerome
    Live Long and Prosper! -Mr. Spock
    All you need is love - The Beatles
    Wishing you a lifetime of happiness! - Uncle
  • Drew and Emily,
    I want to wish both of you the best of luck.  I am so happy for the both of you.  If I could give you one word of advice it would be to never go to bed mad at each other! This a brand new beginning for the both of you so make many memories and cherish them forever.  Love you both and thanks for letting me be a part of you special day.  I hope that we can come visit you soon! - Calyn
  • I wanted to wish you something that you would need and I decided that you might like some good luck, so I wish you tons of good luck & hope that you will be very happy. - Matt
  • Drew and Emily,
    Never compromise your commitment to each other and to God.  Pain, sadness, grief, and hardship will show themselves along your journey.  Allow these times to be only moments compared to the years of affection, laughs, dreams, and faith. 
    Live in the Blessings of God - The Preacher

    "My wish for you is that your dreams be big, your worries be small, that you never have to carry more than you can hold.  And while you're out there getting to what you are getting to, I hope you know there's someone out there that wants the same things, too.  Yes, this is my wish."

    Always, DB the LB, (Best Man & Best Friend)

Beautiful wishes from friends and family. I remember a telegram that was sent to my sister the day before her wedding. It said "Wish we were there, but we weren't invited"!!!
