When someone gets married, how do you congratulate them?

Do you say 'Congratulations on your wedding or marriage'????

    Either. You could also congratulate them on their nuptials.

    You just say, congratulations, there is no need to say anything else, they know that they got married!

    The wedding is only one day, a brief ceremony. If you congratulated them on their wedding it could sound as if you were approving their choice of venue, flowers, menu etc.

    That's not what you mean. You should congratulate them not on the wedding but on their marriage.

    It is fine to congratulate them both together, but if you're speaking to them individually, be aware that it's not traditional to congratulate the bride. You can congratulate her husband, but to the bride you say 'I wish you every happiness'.

      Better might be: "Congratulations on getting married".

    t;I wish you good luck..conveys a particular feeling of empathy, a way of expressing how happy you are that they are happy. When good things happen, we show appreciation for them because, one, it’s the polite thing to do (even if you don’t feel particularly excited or attached), . Finding someone to share your life with is an awesome thing. Congratulations to both of you.Congratulations! is just fine. Also, "I wish both of you much happiness together."

    Verbally, it's best to just say congratulations. If you need to tell them why you're congratulating, use marriage instead of wedding.

    A wedding is usually the biggest day of a person's life, but when all is said and done, it's a party. A marriage is a much bigger deal.

      Totally rude, better to just keep your mouth shut.

    Either is fine. Or just 'congratulations', and they'll know what it's about.
