Short and Simple Wishing Well Wording

Gifts for the future

Your presence is all we want on our special date.

To share with us our happiness and to help us celebrate.

However, if you were thinking of giving a gift to help us on our way,

a gift of cash towards our future would really make our day.

But if you prefer to purchase a gift,

feel free to surprise us in your own special way.

A sweet poem about presence over presents

We’d love to have you with us when all our dreams come true!

We want you to know that your presence over presents will truly do. 

But if we’re honoured with a gift from you, please think to wish us well. 

May we respectfully request a contribution to our wedding wishing well.

Minimal request

Please, no gifts. We just want to party with you.

Funny Wishing Well Wording

Don’t go overboard with your gift

To save you shopping, sit back and rest.

A contribution to our wishing well is all we request.

Don’t go overboard or rob any banks,

any amount will make us smile with thanks.

Now we have saved you all the fuss,

we would love if you could come and celebrate with us!

Heartfelt Message

You already live together and don’t require any household gifts

A home together we already share

furnished with love, pride and care.

So when we look at all we’ve got,

we really do not need a lot.

So we’d like to ask, if you don’t mind,

for a gift of another kind.

Instead of searching for inspiration,

you can simply make a monetary contribution.

Place your gift in the wishing well,

make two wishes but do not tell.

One for us and one for you,

and trust that both will come true.

Please don’t feel obliged to do it this way.

Your presence is all we want on our special day.

If a gift is hard to find

If finding a gift is hard to do,

Perhaps our wishing well is for you.

A gift of money is placed in the well.

Then make a wish… but do not tell.

We have already got toasters and spoons,

A donation would be lovely for our honeymoon.

If, however, a gift you do not find.

Be assured we will not mind.

Your presence there would be the most pleasant.

And would serve as the most beautiful present.
