Wishing Well Wording

Published

More common than not, today's couples live together well before they get married. In return they have obtained all the odds and ends necessary to maintain a comfortable home life and no doubt the presents from the Engagement Party may have included double ups of every kitchen item known to man.

On the wedding day many couples are now opting for ways to discretely ask their guests to give money instead of a gift - A great way to do this is to obtain a wishing well.

To inform guests about a wishing well being at your wedding you may want to provide a little note in with your invitations.

Use the following as a guideline:

Wishing well 1:

To save you looking, shopping or buying,
Here is an idea we hope you like trying.
Come to our wedding, to wish us both well,
And bring this small sack, to throw in our wishing well.
Fit it with paper all colours will do, gold is our favourite but silver will do.
Now that we have saved you, all of that fuss, 
We hope you will come and celebrate with us.

Wishing well 2:

Because at first we lived in sin,
We've got the sheets and a rubbish bin,
A gift from you would be swell,
But we'd prefer a donation to our Wishing Well.

Wishing well 3:

More than just kisses so far we've shared,
Our home has been made with love and care, 
Most things we need we've already got, 
And in our home we can't fit a lot, 
A wishing well we thought would be great, 
but only if you wish to participate.

Wishing well 4:

To save you wondering what to buy,
A Wishing Well we thought we'd try,
Simply place some money in a plain envelope seperate to your card. 
Drop your envelope and card in the Wishing Well. 
Make a wish when you do, 
Now, let's celebrate and make dreams come true!

Honeymoon fund 1:

We’ve collected most things over the years
from household appliances, to linen and
holiday souvenirs.
With everyone travelling from afar
it may be hard to fit a present in the car.
Our wish is only to see you on the day
celebrating in your own special way.
But if you still wish to give a gift
we’d love you giving our honeymoon fund a little lift.
Place your gift in an envelope
and wish for all your dreams and hopes.

Honeymoon fund 2:

We're on our way to (insert honeymoon destination)
for a romantic honeymoon,
A holiday for us to share that
hasn't come too soon.
So if you're thinking of a gift
and are not sure what to get,
A gift of cash would help us most
to get us on that jet.
But most of all we'd love you there
on our special date,
To share with us our happiness
and help us celebrate.
