WAnt to put it on a greeting card for a wedding.

French translation:Nous vous souhaitons de longues et très heureuses années de mariage
Explanation:
Or If you the wishes are your own only :
Je vous souhaite de longues et très heureuses années de mariage.

There are quite a few ways of expressing wishes, but this is the closest to your English text.
It would be nice to add something along the lines of : Nos voeux les plus sincères or Mes voeux les plus sincères if the wishes are your own only. This means Best Wishes.

THanks. I guess we will find out when they get the card. IF they ask what I was trying to say, we will know this was not it.
