For the Bride and Groom - ways to ask for money

 

Of course our post boxes and wishing wells may just be used for wedding cards from your day and evening guests, however it is growing in tradition for many couples to ask for money also.

 

It can be difficult chosing the right words for your invitations should you wish to receive a monetary gift.  We have compiled a collection of poems which you may wish to use.

If you were thinking of a gift for us we ask if you’d please consider contributing to our honeymoon to make it all the sweeter.

Our house is full of all the things a family could require, and so a holiday away is what we most desire.

Then while we're relaxing on the beach or by the pool so blue we'll sit back and know that it is truly thanks to you

 

They have their dishes and towels for two 
They have pots and pans and oven mitts too 
So what do you get for the Bride & Groom 
Whose house is setup in every room? 
Their house needs repairs and some upgrades too 
But you can not register for carpet and glue. 
A well that holds wishes is the way to go 
So lets make it easy for all that know. 
An envelope will be provided for those who have room, 
To give a monetary wish to the Bride and Groom
A wishing well will be on display at the reception hall 
To attach your wishes, for the couple, with love from all.


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!!


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),
A gift of money is placed in the well,
Then make a wish .... but shhh don't tell!
Once we've replaced the old with the new,
We can look back and say it was thanks to you!
And in return for your kindness, we're sure 
That one day soon you will get what you wished for.


Soon you will hear our wedding bell,
As Friends and family wish us well.
Our household thoughts are not brand new,
We have twice the things we need for two.
Since we have our share of dishes and bedding,
We're having instead a wishing well wedding.
But more important we ask of you,
your prayers of love and blessings too!


This wishing well is here today for family and friends. Take an
envelope, make a wish and please drop it in. As it falls into the
well your wish, for the couple, will come true. A token for the
couple, to help them begin, will be welcomed, too. Please take the
time to make a wish before the day is through.


Now we are to be Mr & Mrs 
We don't need a wedding list of dishes 
we have two kettles, two toasters, two microwaves 
We require a house for which we have to save. 
If you would like to give us a gift, 
A cheque or vouchers would give us a lift 
We like to think of it as our 'Wishing Well' 
Which will be filled with your love, we can tell.


Our home is quite complete now, 
we've been together long, 
so please consider our request and do not take us wrong. 
A delicate request it is, we hope you understand. 
Please play along as it will give our married life a hand.
The tradition of the wishing well is one that's known by all. 
Go to the well, toss in a coin and as the coin does fall, 
Make a wish upon that coin and careful as you do. 
Cause as the well's tradition goes your wishes will come true.
So on this special day of ours, the day that we'll be wed. 
Don't hunt for special gifts but give money in it's stead. 
And as you drop the envelope with money great and small, 
Remember, make your wish as you watch your money fall.


"We've been together a few years now; 
we have pots and pans and linen and towels; 
we have glasses and toasters, really quite a few; 
so instead of more gifts, we suggest this to you; 
if it doesn't offend and it won't send you running; 
what we would really appreciate is quite simply money; 
we know choosing gifts can be such a pain; 
and this way there is no chance of bringing the same." 
What do you think?


"If you were thinking of giving a gift, to help us on our way.
A gift of cash towards our house, would really make our day.
However, if you prefer to purchase a gift, feel free to surprise us in your own way."


"We really would appreciate a little money of our own, 
instead of a little gift for our new home!" 
We know you want to find something nice 
But it's such a hassle to find the right price 
So come and enjoy the day all sunny 
We really would appreciate a little money.


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. 
Fill 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.

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

If you are having trouble finding just the gift for us,
This may prove a solution with a minimum of fuss.
Just pop your gift inside the flower and pin it to our tree,
And make a wish for happiness forever ours to be.


We made a commitment some time ago
that together through life we were destined to go.
We purchased our furniture, linen and bedding,
in the fulfilling years leading up to our wedding.
What else we might need is not easy to foresee,
but what might help us in the future is a deposit on our Giving Tree.


Love the joy of choosing gifts?
Wrap the chosen captive?
If thoughts elude in this regard
… money is attractive!


A wishing-well will await
to help build loving nest…
If instead a gift would buy,
ask our Mums – they know best
and details that can end your quest!


 

Soon you will hear our wedding bells,
as Friends and family wish us well.
Our household treasures are not brand new,
we have twice the things we need for two.
Since we have our share of dishes and bedding,
we’re having instead a wishing well wedding.
But more important we ask of you,
your prayers of love and blessings too.


Over the years, we have collected
Most of the things, with a house connected
Cutlery and crockery, by the score
And of towels, we need no more.
But if you wish, a little help would be great
With some special things, more ornate.
A wishing well, at our reception will be kept
Your gracious gift, to accept.
So if you like, no need to shop.


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.
Fill 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.


So what do you get for the Bride and Groom
Whose house needs things In every room?
When shopping for a present please, don’t be rash
As the option is there to just give cash.
We hope that you don’t find our request to be funny
But the decision is yours to buy a present or give money.
Now you have the choice please do not fuss.
The most important thing of all
Is that you come and celebrate with us!


Your presence at our wedding is present enough.
But if we’re honoured with a gift from you
May we respectfully request a gift of money
To help the building of our dream home come true!


Our two families have come together as one.
We really hope you can join in the fun.
A wishing well we thought would be great,
but only if you wish to participate.
A gift of money is placed in the well,
then make a special wish, but do not tell!
Please do not be offended by our request,
as our day is complete having you as a guest.

 

If finding a gift is hard to do
Our wishing well is just for you
A gift of money is placed in the well
Then make a wish but do not tell
If it is, however, a gift you find
Please feel assure, we will not mind


In our house we have the things
that living together normally brings
most household items we’ve already bought
And because of this reason
we thought a wishing well would be great
Only if guests wish to participate
A gift of money is placed in an envelope
So in the future we hope
to furnish our home to its very best
And always remember it was due to our guests.


We don’t want to offend but we have it all
All household goods and so much more
To save you shopping, sit back, and rest
A gift of currency is our request


We’ve been together for sometime and have accumulated a lot of stuff.
Pots and pans we already have, toasters and towels as well.
The perfect gift we could receive is money in our Wishing Well.
If however, it is a gift you find, please fel assured we would not mind.

 


We hope that you will join us on our special day
To celebrate our marriage in a a very special way
To make it easy for you and avoid a shopping spree
We thought that we would have instead a little money tree
Because we’ve been together for a little while now
We collected our household things before taking our vows
So please don’t be offended at our particular request
as this way we can choose the gift that will benefit us the best


We are trying to grow a money tree
A difficult task you would agree
But it’s something that we really need
Perhaps you would care to plant a seed.


These two love birds have it all
family, friends and so much more.

If a gift you intend to help their nest
and you need some assistance, may we suggest
a donation in their little bird cage
to assist them along on their next life stage.

Envelopes will be left in the reception room
to bestow a gift upon the Bride and Groom.


To support us on our special day
you may wish to follow with tradition and bring a gift.
Or alternatively you may like to help us
make our honeymoon a little more special.
For this reason we have chosen a wedding treasure chest.
The treasure chest will be at the reception
where we can receive your best wishes and contribution.

 

We haven’t got a gift list, for all of you to see,
Because as you all know we never can agree!
But if you’d like to help us, start our married life,
cash or high street vouchers, would save a lot of strife.


If you were thinking of giving a gift
to help us on our way,
a gift of cash towards our house,
would really make our day.
However, if you prefer to purchase a gift,
feel free to surprise us in your own way.


Many of our guests have enquired
for a gift idea to be inspired.
Like many young couples today,
we have a lot of things anyway.
If you would like to give, it is our request,
for something for our treasure chest.
A gift of money you can afford,
is just what we need, you can be assured!
Without the help of this little pun,
our honeymoon might not be as much fun.
