Wishing Well Poems

Here are quite a few poems I have found over the weeks.....

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 setup in every room?
Their house needs repairs and some upgrades too
But you can not 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.

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!!

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,
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!
And in return for your kindness, we're sure
That one day soon you will get what you wished for.

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!

This wishing well is here today for family and friends. Take an
envelope, make a wish and please drop it in. As it falls into the
well your wish, for the couple, will come true. A token for the
couple, to help them begin, will be welcomed, too. Please take the
time to make a wish before the day is through.

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.

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.
Cause 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 in it's stead.
And as you drop the envelope with money great and small,
Remember, make your wish as you watch your money fall.

"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."

"We really would appreciate a little money of our own,
instead of a little gift for our new home!"
We know you want to find something nice
But it's such a hassle to find the right price
So come and enjoy the day all sunny
We really would appreciate a little money.

To save you looking, shopping or buying.
Here is an idea, we hope you like trying.
Come to our wedding, to wish us both well.
And bring this small sack, to throw in our wishing well.
Fill it with paper all colours will do, gold is our favourite but silver will do.
Now that we have saved you, all of that fuss.
We hope you will come, and celebrate with us.

An Ode to the Gift List

In a wedding invitation,
You usually find some lists,
For venues, menus and hotels,
And also for the gifts

But this one is unusual,
It comes in a different way,
As we're not asking for presents,
But for something else today

Now please don't think we're selfish,
Or that this comes from greed,
But we've lived together for a while,
So there's not that much we need

We would appreciate help though,
To send us on our way,
And allow us to have our honeymoon,
In a land quite far away

So now the point of all this rhyme,
The thing that we would like,
Isn't towels, toasters or microwaves,
But pounds and pence alike

And now you know the reason,
Behind this cheeky accord,
Please help to give us memories,
Of a dream honeymoon abroad.

We know it's not traditional
It's not the way it's done
But instead of a wedding list
We'd like a bit of sun.
Please do not think of us as rude
Please do not take offence
We do not want to upset you
That's not the way it's meant.
We've lived together quite a while
And all the bills are paid
We've got our plates, our pots and pans
Our plans have all been made.
So if you'd like to give a gift
To help us celebrate
Some money for a honeymoon
We would appreciate

We are sending out this invitation,
And hope you will join our celebration.
If to send a gift is your intention,
In modesty we would like to mention,
We have already got a kettle and a toaster,
Crockery, dinner mats and coasters,
So rather than something we have already got,
Please give us money for our saving pot.
But, most importantly, we request,
That you turn up as our wedding guest

We haven't got a wedding list,
The reasons we'll explain
It's to save you all the hassle
As shopping is a pain.

We thought we'd ask you all
For something else instead
A small contribution towards
A holiday in the med.

So if you'd like to contribute
Towards our honeymoon
We offer you our heartfelt "Thanks!"
With love, the Bride & Groom.

We are sending out this invitation
In hope you'll join our celebration
But if a gift is your intention
We'll take this oppurtunity to mention
We have already got a kettle and toaster
crockery, dinner mats, and matching coasters
so rather than something we have already got
We would appreciate money for our honeymoon pot
But most importantly we request
That you come to our wedding as our guest

To celebrate our wedding you may wish to buy us presents
However this is not required, all we want is your presence
If you insist,we must admit, some money would be great
To help us do some home improvements at a later date.
If you still feel the need, to get us a small token,
We would appreciate vouchers for any shop that's open
Regardless of which choice you make, all we would like to say,
is come along and have some fun, on this our special day.

We haven't got a gift list, for all of you to see,
Because as you all know we never can agree!
But if you'd like to help us, start our married life,
cash or high street vouchers, would save a lot of strife.

We have most of the things we need
Like a kettle and two toasters,
We have two different crockery sets
With dinner plates and coasters,
Pots and pans, knives and forks
A chopping board for cheese,
If you would like to give us a gift
We would like the money please!

On this our special wedding day,
We would just like to say,
We have a house and contents too,
So presents would not really do.

But if a gift you’d like to bring,
Pennies would be the ideal thing.
We hope that this won’t cause offence,
But in our case this makes more sense

We Do Not Have A Wedding List
Nor Requests For Certain Things
All We Want Is Your Company
And The Memories The Day Brings

A Financial Gift Would Be Lovely
An Appreciated Help To Us
But Please Do Not Feel Pressured
As This Is Not A Must

There are just a few rules to be set

The first is 'save the date'
Of Saturday 12th May
To Share the love and happiness
On our wedding day.

The second one is vital
If you're to be our guest,
To eat, drink and be merry
Or do your very best.

The third one is an order
So don't bring two left feet,
As when the evening comes around
You MUST dance to the beat

The fourth rule can be broken
We really do not mind,
But if you choose to follow it
Thank you for being kind.

We've been together for a few years
And have a lovely home,
There are not too many items now
We don't already own

So if your thoughts were on a gift
Your presence will suffice,
But if you really feel the need
Then money would be nice

The choice is really up to you
And we would like to say
We hope you come enjoy yourselves
And have a lovely day to

Hope these help some of you x smile.gif
