Question:

Can you please tell me if it’s permitted to wish a mazel tov or congratulations to a close Jewish friend or family member who is engaged to a non Jew?

Answer:

Unfortunately not. We are prohibited to give positive recognition or encouragement to an aveira. It is called chanufa, and intermarriage is definitely included in that.
