My brother is getting married to a Dane in Danemark and I would like to include some sort of Wedding wishes in Danish in a card to send along with their gift, but I am getting a bit lost searching in Google...

Would something like TILLYKKE MED BRYLLUPSDAGEN be ok? Would you suggest something else? (with translation into English, please).

Thanks a lot in advance and apologies for not posting this in Kudoz but since is outside my language pair and I wasn't able to post it there.

That one there is pretty standard, "congratulations with the wedding day" or really, congratulations on your wedding. It works pretty well. I married a Dane, and someone said that to me, and it is still working, 45 years later.

Yes, Ana,

This is very fine, and should you want to include a few more words in Danish, a lot of us would be happy to be of any help.

Your question suggests that you are not participating, but do visit Denmark and your brother and sister-in-law some time.

Best wishes

Thanks so much to you both!

I will indeed be attenting the ceremony at Saeby, but the gift is not something I could easily take into the plane with me and so I am sending it before hand.

Best, Ana
