Couples are choosing wedding wishing wells for their big day in place of gifts. Wedding wishing wells save your guests having to bother asking what you would like as a gift, plus you don’t end up with gifts you don’t need or want. On the upside, you can spend the cash however you like!
Wedding wishing wells are an ideal way for guests to pitch in to help you with an expensive purchase too. One that may have once been out of your reach, but now achievable. So they’re a bit of a win alround really for everyone.
Well, how do you request your gifts to be cash you ask? A short and sweet poem always seems to go down well. Include it with their invitation. You could write it yourself if you have a way with words. You never know, you may be a poet and didn’t know it! If not, here’s one of our faves…
In our house we have the things
that living together normally brings
most household items we’ve already bought
and because of this reason we thought
A wishing well would be great
(only if guests wish to participate)
A gift of money is placed in an envelope
so in the future we hope
to furnish our home to its very best
and always remember it was due to our guests.
