Offering engagement congratulations is about letting the happy couple know how excited you are that they've found each other and have committed to one another.
The best advice we can give on congratulating them is that you speak from your heart.
This is a very special and emotional time for the couple and knowing that they have your love and support means a great deal.
A few words are really all that's needed. If you do include poetry, quotes or sayings, make sure that you use them to enhance your message and that they don't become the message itself.

But if your love and must needs have desires, let here be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart
And a song of praise upon your lips.
Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
Love is a magic ray
emitted from the burning core of the soul
and illuminating the surrounding earth.
It enables us
to perceive life as a beautiful dream
between one awakening and another.
Love adorns itself;
it seeks to prove inward joy by outward beauty.
Love does not claim possession,
but gives freedom.
Love is an endless mystery,
for it has nothing else to explain it.
Love's gift cannot be given,
it waits to be accepted.
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Offering engagement congratulations is all about letting the newly engaged couple know that you're thinking of them and wishing them the best that life has to offer.
