50 Anniversary Messages for Parents

greetings card inspiration Published Jun 27, 2024

As a married parent, I adore those sweet little moments when my kids acknowledge the strength of our marriage. I'll give you an example-

About a year ago, myself and Justin were practising handstands together, and our daughter walked in (not a euphemism, I promise). Anyway, she said, "You guys are so cute, you're like best friends, but married!" I loved that, it made my day. 

The point I'm trying to make is that if your parents have an anniversary coming up, the nicest gift you can give them is a thoughtful, meaningful anniversary message. Wishing your parents a happy anniversary can be tricky if you can't find the right words; perhaps you want to show them your heartfelt gratitude and admiration, maybe they are your inspiration and guiding light, but you don't want to sound cheesy, of course. Or, perhaps you want a funny anniversary message for your parents. Either way, I've got you. 

Here are some of my favourite wedding anniversary messages for parents.
