Wishing wells are becoming one of the most popular alternatives to the traditional wedding registry. Whether you are looking to put money towards your honeymoon, home, or house decorations… But there one big question mark surrounding this is, will your guests be comfortable giving cash?

If you know that you would prefer to ask for money then there are many ways to make it work for your guests. To approach this sensitive subject of asking for money, try one of these gorgeous poems to place with your wedding invitations to let all your guests know your plans in a beautiful way.

Wishing Well Poem 1:

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

But at the risk of being bold we ask one thing of you.

We’ve been collecting household items before tying the knot

And consequently have what most newly married couples do not.

We’re on our way to [insert honeymoon destination] for our honeymoon.

A holiday for us to share that hasn’t come too soon.

So if you’re thinking of a gift and don’t know what to get.

A gift of cash would help us most and get us on that jet.

But most of all we’d love you there on our special date.

To share with us our happiness and help us celebrate.

Wishing Well Poem 2:

We made a commitment,

some time ago,

that together through life,

we were destined to go.

To save you looking,

shopping and buying,

here is an idea,

we hope you’ll like trying!

Come to our wedding,

to wish us both well,

and please make a donation,

to our wishing well.

Wishing Well Poem 3:

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 Poem 4:

We hope you can join us on

this our wedding day, to celebrate

our union in a very special way.

Our wish is quite different

and a little hard to tell, but

rather than shopping for a present,

why not bless our wishing well.

Just place an envelope into the well

with your gift of cash inside,

the value is for you to decide.

If you would rather shop,

it is fine by us.

We just thought by giving you

this option, it would

save you a lot of fuss!

Wishing Well Poem 5:

On this special day of ours,

the day that we are wed,

don’t hunt around for special gifts,

you’ll surely lose your head!

Just pop some money in

this envelope,

keep it separate to your card,

and place it into the wishing well,

it’s easy….not so hard!

We thank you for your

precious gift given from the heart.

Remember – your willingness

to participate will give

us a huge head start!

Wishing Well Poem 6:

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 its stead.

And as you drop the envelope,

With money great and small,

Remember, make your wish

As you watch your money fall.
