WISHING WELL

Wishing Well Wording 1

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!

Top of Page

Wishing Well Wording 2

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!

Top of Page

Wishing Well Wording 3

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.

Top of Page

Wishing Well Wording 4

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!

Wishing Well Wording 5

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 cannot 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.

Wishing Well Wording 6

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,
because 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 instead.
And as you drop the envelope with money great and small,
remember to make your wish as you watch your money fall.

Top of Page

Wishing Well Wording 7

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.

Top of Page

Wishing Well Wording 8

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.

Top of Page

Wishing Well Wording 9

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.

Wishing Well Wording 10

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.
