I went to my uncle’s anniversary party (wedding), I wonder if I can say:

Happy anniversary.

Thanks a lot

I asked this question because I heard someone say this in a TVB serial (TVB is from HK) and I am curious whether it sounds natural. I once was told “Merry Halloween” and it turned out to be a mistake. :)

    Hi, all , what should I say to a new couple who were married not long ago. I may say this on their wedding day or not long after their wedding day.

    "Happy marriage (to you)!"
    Does this sound odd? What would you native speakers say?
    Thank you.

    "Congratulations on your union" sounds rather formal. I'd expect to see it written in a card, maybe. If this is something you are planning to say to the couple in person, I'd just say "Congratulations." They will know what you're talking about. :)
