Wishing Well Wording


A Wedding Wishing Well can be stylishly set up at the wedding reception for guests to provide cash, cheques or vouchers in an envelope.  A Wedding Wishing Well Card is often inserted as part of wedding invitations to guests, being a fun way to collect gifts and an accepted way of offering guests a cash wedding gift option. A Wedding Wishing Well is a practical alternative to a bridal registry or receiving random gifts as it provides:

  • the bridal couple with flexibility to use the gift;
  • guests with an easy and effective option; and
  • contributes to paying off the cost of the wedding.


References to "presents" in wedding invitations is never acceptable. A Wedding Wishing Well card is a discreet way of informing guests of gift preference, similar to a bridal registry.


Below are some popular Wishing Well poems to assist you in your wedding invitation preparations. You can also click on our realistic Wishing Well card electronic mock ups pictured on the right hand side for further Wishing Well ideas!



    "We hope that you will join us on our special day,
    To celebrate our marriage in a a very special way.
    To make it easy for you and avoid a shopping spree,
    We thought that we would have instead a little money tree.
    Because we've been together for a little while now,
    We collected our household things before taking our vows.
    So please don't be offended at our particular request,
    as this way we can choose the gift that will benefit us the best."


  • "We don't want to offend but we have it all:
    All household goods and so much more.
    To save you shopping, sit back and rest,
    A gift of currency is our request.
    Don't go overboard or rob any banks,
    Any little thing will make us smile with thanks.
    We supply the Wishing Well,
    No wrapping, an envelope and who can tell.
    Now that we have saved you all the fuss,
    it would be appreciated if you would come
    and celebrate with us.



    "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!
    If however, a gift you find
    Please feel assured we sill not mind.
    And in return for your kindness we're sure
    That one day soon you'll get what you wished for!"


  • "Many of our guests have enquired

    for a gift idea to be inspired.

    If you would like to give,

    we would like to suggest

    something for our Wishing Well would be best.

    A gift of money you can afford

    is just what we need you can be assured.

    But more importantly we ask of you

    your prayers of love and blessings too."


  • "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 Bride & Groom,

    as they start their life united by God

    to live forever side by side."


  • "From bedroom to bathroom, from laundry to kitchen,

    We’ve got all the things that we need.

    We’re starting from scratch and making Our Home,

    Our Journey, Our Life and Our Dream.

    To be there with Us on our Special day,

    Means more than our words can express,

    We thought we could help you with choosing a gift,

    Some money would suit us the best.

    For monetary gifts, a wishing well will be placed at our reception."


  • "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 in our Wishing Well!!"


  • "If you were thinking of giving a gift, to help us

    on our way,

    A monetary gift 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.
