Following are some suggestions for when you need to find the perfect way to ask your guests for money instead of gifts.
Soon you will hear our wedding bells,
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!
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
Like a toaster and kettle, pans and pots
A wishing well we thought would be great
(but only if you wish to participate )
A gift of money is placed in a well
Then make a wish…but do not tell
Once we’ve replaced the old with the new
We can look back and say it was all thanks to you!
And in return for your kindness we’re sure
that one day soon you’ll get what you wished for!
Because at first we lived in sin
We’ve got the sheets and the rubbish bin
A gift from you would be quite swell
May we suggest a donation to our Wishing Well!
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.
