Wedding Wishing Well Card Wording

These days many couples are preferring  a “wishing well” contribution rather than the traditional toaster or dinner set as a wedding present. However, finding the right words for this on a wedding invitation can be difficult.

Here are a number of different ways to word your wishing well card to ask your guests for money instead of gifts?

VERSION 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, 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 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!

VERSION 2

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 or 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 or small,
Remember then to make your wish as you watch your money fall.

VERSION 3

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.

VERSION 4

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.

VERSION 5

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.

VERSION 6

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!!

VERSION 7

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 set up 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.

VERSION 8

“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;
Now that we have saved you, all of that fuss.
We hope you will come, and celebrate with us.
Gifts can be such a pain;
and this way there is no chance of bringing the same.”

VERSION 9

“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.”

VERSION 10

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!

VERISON 11

“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 just as happy with a little money.

VERSION 12

Many of our guests have enquired
For a gift idea to be inspired
Like many young couples today
We have most 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 would not be much fun

VERSION 13

The tradition of the wishing well
used on the wedding day,
is here both for your money gifts
and for what you would like to say.
So please drop in a token of love
for this special Groom & Bride,
as they start their life united by God
to live forever side by side.
