Wishing Well Wording

Tackling the issue of gifts for your wedding can be a tricky one so we have put together a collection of verses to express your gift wishes with polite etiquette and courtesy to all your guests.


Poem 1


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, the pans and the pots.

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 do not 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’ll get what you wished for!


Poem 2


We made a commitment some time ago

that together through life we were destined to go.

To save you looking, shopping and buying

here is an idea we hope you’ll like trying!

Come to our wedding to wish us both well

and please make a donation to our wishing well.




Poem 3


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.

Place your envelope into the well,

Then make a wish, but do not tell.

Please do not be offended by our request,

As our day is complete having you as a guest.




Poem 4


These two lovebirds have it all

Family, friends and love galore.

If a gift you intend to help our nest

And need some assistance may we suggest.

A contribution to our lil’ cage

Will help us along to our next life stage.

But most important is your presence this day and night

As our wedding without you just would not be right!




Poem 5


To travel here is no small feat

We’ve asked so much of you

Your presence is present enough

To hear us say I do

And should you still wish to honour us

With a gift of money on the day

A wishing well at our reception

Will set us on our way




Poem 6


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.

Don’t go overboard or rob any banks,

Any little thing will make us smile with thanks.

We supply the wishing well,

just pop in an envelope and who can tell?

Now that we have saved you all the fuss,

We would love you to come and

Celebrate with us!




Poem 7


Please know that gifts are not expected nor required. Your presence at our ceremony and celebration is the best gift we could ever ask for!

However, should you wish to bless us with a gift or money contribution, a gift table will be available at the reception.




Poem 8


Your love, laughter, and company on our wedding day are the most special gifts we could ever hope to receive. However, should you wish to honour us with a gift, a contribution toward our dream honeymoon will help to create memories that will last a lifetime.
