Wedding Wishing Well
Many couples who are getting married would prefer to receive money or gift vouchers instead of a more traditional Wedding gift. The problem is how to ask guests for this in a tasteful way.
Wedding Wishing wells were devised to provide a simple, interesting and charming way for a couple to ask for money, which does not offend Wedding guests.
The concept and process of utilising a Wedding Wishing Well is simple and straightforward. When the Wedding invitations are sent out the couple include a brief note which indicates to guests that a Wedding Wishing Well will be available at the wedding reception. There are many ways in which this can be phrased. Two good Wedding Wishing Well examples are as follows:
Wedding Wishing Wells Example 1
More than 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!
While enjoying our honeymoon we'll feel brand new,
We can look back and say it was all thanks to you!
And in return for your kindness, we're so sure,
That one day soon you will get what you wished for.
Wedding Wishing Well Example 2
Now we are to be Mr & Mrs
We don't need a wedding list of dishes
We have the kettles, the toasters, the linen
All we lack now is a house to put it in.
If you would like to give us a gift,
We know of something that would give us a lift
Please donate your love to our own little 'Well'
How grateful we'd be, we just cannot tell.
To save you from looking, shopping, or buying.
Here is an idea, we hope you don't mind trying.
Come to our wedding to wish us both well,
And make some use of our little wishing well.
Your wishes will be used to find a home of our own
Which we will have you to thank, when our family has grown
Now that we have saved you all of the fuss,
We hope that you will come and celebrate with us!
