Wish the happy couple on their special day by sharing with them some fabulous anniversary quotes that celebrate their years of togetherness.

You can make a toast, offer encouragement, share a memory or simply call out how special it is to have, hold and stick by each other through time.

And whether it’s a card for your own anniversary or that of family members or friends, Hallmark’s writers have message ideas for you.

From still-newlyweds toasting with wine glasses they opened on their wedding day a year ago to busy parents scrambling to find an anniversary babysitter to a gray-haired couple holding hands over anniversary pancakes and coffee…that kind of enduring commitment is always something to admire and celebrate.

When you send an anniversary card, the words you write can add so much to the joy of the occasion.

Cards specific to these anniversaries will feature the year number prominently in their design, but you can make any card a milestone card (or any anniversary a milestone anniversary) by writing that impressive new number somewhere in your personal message.

An anniversary is a happy occasion that sometimes falls during a tough time, due to serious illness, job loss, marital problems or other challenging circumstances.

You might even write a mini-tribute to the milestone couple.
