Wishing Well wording
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!
Once we’ve replaced the old with the new,
We can look back and say it was thanks to you!
We’ve been together for quite a while now.
We have pots, pans, linen and towels.
We have glasses and toasters – of some more than two.
So instead of a gift – we suggest this to you.
If it doesn’t offend and you don’t think it funny,
What we’d really appreciate is quite simply – money.
Our love and our thanks come with this request.
We hope you don’t mind, but for us it’s the best.
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 special way.
We’ve been together for some years
And have a lovely home
There are not too many items now
We don’t already own
So please don’t be offended
And please don’t think we’re brash
But if your thoughts were on a present
We would much prefer the cash
If finding a gift is hard to do,
then we would like to suggest this to you:
(e.g). Our Honeymoon
is what you can contribute to.
And how much? Well, that depends on you.
But please don’t feel obligated
or obliged in any way.
Just having you attend our wedding
is a gift on our Special Day.
