for some R&R and would love your help
to make this a reality.

WISHING WELL

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,
were having instead a wishing well wedding.
However, if giving a gift is a must
there is a list of things selected by us
But more important we ask of you,
your prayers of love and blessings too!

—–

[Bride] and [Groom] have not registered for gifts
but are currently renovating their first home.
If you would like to help with this,
your contribution would be greatly appreciated.

—–

Your presence is gift enough
accompanied with a smile
already we’d be really grateful
that you have spared a while.
But just in case that you insist
to share a little something
we shall install a wishing well
at the place of merry making.

—–

Your presence is all we hope for on our wedding day.
For those guests wanting to honour the
occasion with a gift, a contribution to
our wishing well would mean the world to us.

—–

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

—–

The greatest thing you could give
is to share with us our day.
But if you were thinking of a gift
please consider what we have to say.
Our house needs repairs and upgrades too
but you cannot register for paint and glue.
A gift box will be there on the day
should you wish to bless us in this way.

will be 
placed at the reception.

So what do you get
for the bride and groom
whose house needs work
in every room?
If buying a gift please don’t be rash
as there’s always the option
to just give cash

Because at first we have lived in sin
we have the sheets and the rubbish bin.
While a gift from you would be swell,
please consider our wishing well.

—–

We are hoping to complete the
furnishing of our new home.
If you were considering a gift,
a monetary contribution towards this
would be most appreciated.

—–

When love is all you need we’re full to the brim,
but it’s a practical world we live in.
So a gift of currency would mean a lot
to help us acquire what we haven’t got.

—–

CHARITY / NO GIFTS

Over the years we have been together, we have been lucky enough to
acquire most of what we need to be comfortable, so no gifts are necessary.
We would welcome a card to mark our memorable day.

—–

We wish for your presence rather than your presents.

—–

Next to your presence at our wedding
a donation made to the charity of your choice
in honour of our marriage would be
the most meaningful gift you could give us.

OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES

You may be used to bringing gifts
to a newlyweds’ celebration
but we desire for you to know
our not-so-typical situation.
We plan to fly across the sea
and begin our life anew
and we will always remember
those who saw us through.
Your presence is gift enough
accompanied with a smile

that you have spared a while.

to share a little something
we shall install a wishing well
at the place of merry making.
