Which tense in a wedding gift message?

I'm a bit confused about whether to use the past or future tense in a message with a wedding gift, given the message arrives before the wedding but the gift arrives after. To quote the wedding list website 'Your gifts will be packed in presentation boxes and delivered to the couple with the rest of their gifts, after their wedding. They will, however, be notified of your gift today and sent your personal message' Do I hope they had a wonderful wedding or do I hope they do have a wonderful wedding?
