Wishing Well Wording Guide

A wishing well or gift registry card is often included with the wedding invitation to advise guests of prefered gift ideas. Brides and grooms find this an ideal option so they do not end up with three toasters and multiple other items they already own. Guests like the guidance of the wishing well and gift registry cards knowing they are giving the bride and groom a gift that they actually need or want.

A wishing well or gift registry card can be a request for money to put towards household items, furniture or even the honeymoon. Alternatively, some brides and grooms choose a retail outlet for guests to put money towards a particular item or the guests can choose an item off a list that has already been pre-selected by the bride and groom. Whatever the preferred option, Annabella Creations has a number of examples available for your wording on your wishing well or gift registry cards. These are examples only, you can write whatever you want to appear.


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 1

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 a 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.

Many of our guests have enquired
for a gift idea to be inspired.
Like many young couples today,
we have a lot of things anyway.
If you would like to give, it is our request,
for something for our treasure chest.
A gift of money you can afford,
is just what we need, you can be assured!
Without the help of this little pun,
our honeymoon might not be as much fun.


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 3

Soon you will hear our wedding bells,
as Friends and family wish us well.
Our household treasures 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!


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 4

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.


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 5

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, the pans and the 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!
And in return for your kindness, we're sure
that one day soon, you'll get what you wished for!


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 6

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 set up 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.


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 7

We've been together a few years now;
we have pots and pans and linen and towels;
we have glasses and toasters, really quite a few;
so instead of more gifts, we suggest this to you;
if it doesn't offend and it won't send you running;
what we would really appreciate is quite simply money;
we know choosing gifts can be such a pain;
and this way there is no chance of bringing the same.
What do you think?


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 8

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.


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 9

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.


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 10

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.


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 11

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 Groom & Bride,
as they start their life united by God
to live forever side by side.


WISHING WELL / GIFT REGISTRY - WORDING 12
