Wedding anniversary messages for parents: It may be a little bit hard to think about who or what your parents were before you were born, but they did have lives back then. For their anniversary, try and figure out a bit about who they were before you were in their lives. It might be interesting to have a look through some old photo albums, videos and letters, looking at the kind of people they were in their earlier years. Maybe you can even upload some of those old memories online for everyone to see, on Facebook or Instagram.


Find some way to make their special day even better with your personal touch. Remember, this day is just as important to you as it is to them, because otherwise you wouldn’t be with them right now otherwise. But remember, this isn’t your day to shine, it’s theirs. Cap all of this off with a thoughtful card that the pair of them will cherish for years to come. Here are some anniversary card messages for your parents.

  • Today is one of the reasons that all three of us are sitting here right now. So Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad. I love you.
  • To the best parents a kid could ask for. Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad, and thanks for everything you do for me!

  • Happy Second Most Important day of the year, Mom and Dad! I think we all know which one is first, though. Happy Anniversary!

  • I’m always going to love you guys. Thank you so much for finding one another. For being the best parents you could be. For the rest of my life I hope to live up to your examples. Thank you, and I love you both from the bottom of my heart. Happy Anniversary.
