What to Say in a Wedding Anniversary Video

Before you set up your camera (or mobile phone) and press record, it helps to prepare a script. Glancing at a rough script will give you the confidence to speak from the heart without forgetting relevant details. 

As a guideline, it helps to include some (or all) of the following in a happy anniversary video message;

  • Congratulate the couple or individual on the special milestone anniversary
  • Wish the couple or individual joy, happiness, and warm anniversary wishes
  • Share relationship details that inspire you
  • Remind the couple or individual about the values they hold

If you’re unsure how to start your message, you can never go wrong with a meaningful anniversary quote. 

Here are a few to start the creative juices flowing. 

  • “The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they’re right if you love to be with them all the time.” — Julia Child.
  • “For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.” — Stephanie Perkins.
  • “In case you ever foolishly forget: I am never not thinking of you.” — Virginia Woolf.
  • “Love grows more tremendously full, swift, poignant, as the years multiply.” — Zane Grey.
  • “It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.” — Rita Rudner.

Wedding Anniversary Wishes for Parents

Your very existence derives from your parent’s love for one another  … that is as inspiring as you can get 😃! A wedding anniversary video message is a great idea … especially if they are approaching a milestone celebration.

Wedding Anniversary Wishes for Parents

Depending on your parents’ characters, you can apply a fun tone or a meaningful, heartfelt message … or both. Craft a message that captures their love. 

Consider the following format when crafting your message;

  • Congratulate them on their wedding anniversary
  • Express gratitude for your parents and the love that they share
  • Include a quote that reflects their marriage
  • Highlight an attribute of their relationship that you admire
  • Send them warmest wishes on the happy occasion

For example,

“Dear Mom and Dad. 

Congratulations on an exciting and inspirational 50 years of marriage! What a huge anniversary! Thank you for being who you are and helping me believe true love exists.💌 You’re the greatest grey haired couple 😃, wonderful parents, and the perfect portrayal of family love.

As the saying goes, “You don’t marry someone you can live with. You marry the person who you cannot live without.”  When I think about the love that you share, I think of these words and how you depend on one another to be the best versions of yourself. 

Dad, I love how you bring Mom coffee in bed every morning and tell her that she’s beautiful even when she doesn’t have her teeth in — I hope to bring my wife coffee every morning as you do.

I have no doubt that you have many years of joy ahead in your love story. Wishing you a happy marriage filled with more love and memories.”

I think that our marriage has been a success because we follow that advice! Thank you for giving me the most incredible five years of marriage — and my own bathroom to escape to! I’m one lucky guy!

I love your playful spirit and natural beauty, especially when we’re watering the garden and I mistake you for a flower, spraying you with water!

  • Happy anniversary, my love. I know we will have many more years of love and excitement ahead of us.”
