Send these free get well poems, wishes, verses, sentiments and sayings to your sick friends. Get well soon greetings are always welcome. Tuck get well.

Many couples now request money or gift vouchers in lieu of receiving multiple platters, toasters and vases as a wedding gift.  More and more couples are already living together, so don’t need the assistance in establishing a household that couples once did. Instead, they’d prefer help to go on a honeymoon, to purchase their first home, or for something else.

Traditionally, there is to be no mention of gifts on the invitation. As presents to a wedding are optional, and entirely at the discretion of the guest, it’s seen as presumptuous to make any mention of gifts. Some go as far to call it tacky.  While I wouldn’t go that far, there are certainly better ways to go about it than dictating your gift requirements. So many modern couples chose to include a small card with their invitation, with a small wishing well poem or saying.

101 Best Wishes

well wishes poem

Wishing well poems are a part of a long tradition, especially during weddings, wherein people write poems on invites to inform their guests that the party would have a wishing well, for gifts and wishes. The tradition of wishing wells at weddings and birthdays take inspiration from similar wells which have been a part of folklore in most countries for centuries now. The origins of the same are unclear but the term stemmed from the belief that since water was the abode of several gods, offering money or other such precious things to them would result in them fulfilling the wishes of the offerer. The belief was common to most European countries. Scientifically too, these offerings of silver and copper coins helped combat the bacterial effect on water, thanks to the biocidal properties of the metals. According to reports in the year 2006, tourists end up offering money amounting to a staggering total of approximately 3 million pounds every year to wishing wells.

A wishing well at any celebration serves as a mean to wish the people or person concerned all the best for the future. It does not necessarily have to be fancy but should serve as the perfect vessel for gifts, notes, checks and wishes that your guests may put into the well. Your poem that will inform your guests about the wishing well at the function should never be the main focus of the invitation. In fact, ideally it should be written at the back of the invite, or towards the end of the invitation that is being sent out. This type of poem is a creative way of announcing the presence of a wishing well at the party you are hosting. Though traditionally, wishing wells have been associated with weddings, several people nowadays also have them at birthdays, baby showers and other such occasions. There are many poems that can be used for invites for such events.

Poems for Bridal Shower

#1
Spices, gadgets and supplies galore,
There's never enough - we always need more!
Please bring one special item for our favorite bride-to-be
Wrap it in tissue, remember no names please, we won't tell
It's just a sweet little surprise for her Wishing Well!


#2
____'s getting married so it only seems fitting
To have an "ABC Wishing Well" for her shower, we aren't kidding!
A letter has been circled so you can tell
How we will fill her wishing well.
Please buy a gift that starts with your letter.
Something silly, something sweet or something much better.
"T" could be tongs, toothpicks or tacks
"S" could be spoons, spices or sacks.
Your imagination is your only limit,
Be clever, be crazy, just get into it.
Then come to the shower, to join in the fun
To honor our sweet bride. Cheers everyone!


Poems for Birthdays

#1
I don't want to offend,
but I have it all,
household goods,
and so much more.
To save you shopping,
looking and buying,
a gift of currency,
I thought you'd like trying.
Don't go overboard,
or rob any banks,
anything in the wishing well will make me smile,
with a heart full of thanks.
Now that I have saved,
you all the fuss,
I hope you will come,
and celebrate with us


#2
A wishing well,
I thought would be great,
But only if,
you wish to participate,
A gift of money,
is deposited into a well,
Then make a wish...
But shhh don't tell!
Once I've replaced,
the old with the new,
I can look back,
and say it was thanks to you!


Poems for Weddings

#1
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 cannot register for carpet and glue.
A well that holds wishes is the way to go
So let's 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.


#2
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.


#3
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!


#4
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.


These poems have become an integral part of most invites, with the increasing number of people opting to have them at their parties. So, the next time you want to inform your guests about the wishing well at your get together, just pen down a poem.

Wishing well poems and ideas

well wishes poem


Here are some of our favourite wishing well poems:


Our two families have come together as one.
We really hope you can join in the fun.
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 special wish, but do not tell!
Please do not be offended by our request,
as our day is complete having you as a guest.


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 a gift, feel free to surprise us in your own special way. 


If finding a gift is hard to do,
Perhaps our wishing well is for you.
A gift of money is placed in the well.
Then make a wish… but do not tell.
If, however, a gift you’d prefer to find.
Be assured we will not mind.


So what do you get
For the Bride and Groom,
Whose house needs things
In every room?

When shopping for a gift,
You needn’t be rash,
As there’s always the option,
To just give cash!

We hope you don’t find,
Our request to be funny
The decision is yours:
To buy a present or give money.

Now you have the choice,
Please do not fuss.
The most important thing of all,
Is that you’re there to celebrate with us!


Soon we are to be Mr & Mrs
We don’t need a wedding list of dishes.
Our life together has already begun
We have almost everything under the sun:
Two kettles, two toasters, two microwaves
Though we also have dreams for which to save.
Our dream is to honeymoon in a foreign land
And walk along the beach hand in hand.
If you would like to give us a gift
A contribution towards this 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!
But the most important thing to say
Is that you are there to celebrate our day!


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!


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


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.


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.


If you are having trouble finding just the gift for us,
This may prove a solution with a minimum of fuss.
Just pop your gift inside the flower and pin it to our tree,
And make a wish for happiness forever ours to be.


We made a commitment some time ago
that together through life we were destined to go.

We purchased our furniture, linen and bedding,
in the fulfilling years leading up to our wedding.

What else we might need is not easy to foresee,
but what might help us in the future is a deposit on our Giving Tree.


A wishing-well will await
to help build loving nest…

If instead a gift would buy,
ask our Mums – they know best
and details that can end your quest!


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.


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.


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.


Now we are to be Mr & Mrs
We don’t need a wedding list of dishes.
A holiday is what we need,
so your help with this would be a great gift indeed.
So should you wish to honour us with a gift,
we have registered a honeymoon registry
at Flight Centre where you can make a contribution
to help us make a honeymoon
a memory that will last a lifetime.


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.


Over the years, we have collected
Most of the things, with a house connected
Cutlery and crockery, by the score
And of towels, we need no more.
But if you wish, a little help would be great
With some special things, more ornate.
A wishing well, at our reception will be kept
Your gracious gift, to accept.
So if you like, no need to shop.


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.


So what do you get for the Bride and Groom
Whose house needs things In every room?
When shopping for a present please, don’t be rash
As the option is there to just give cash.
We hope that you don’t find our request to be funny
But the decision is yours to buy a present or give money.
Now you have the choice please do not fuss.
The most important thing of all
Is that you come and celebrate with us!


Your presence at our wedding is present enough.
But if we’re honoured with a gift from you
May we respectfully request a gift of money
To help the building of our dream home come true!


Our two families have come together as one.
We really hope you can join in the fun.
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 special wish, but do not tell!
Please do not be offended by our request,
as our day is complete having you as a guest.


In our house we have the things
that living together normally brings
most household items we’ve already bought
And because of this reason
we thought a wishing well would be great
Only if guests wish to participate
A gift of money is placed in an envelope
So in the future we hope
to furnish our home to its very best
And always remember it was due to our guests.


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

We’ve ben together for sometime and have accumulated a lot of stuff.
Pots and pans we already have, toasters and towels as well.
The perfect gift we could receive is money in our Wishing Well.
If however, it is a gift you find, please fel assured we would not mind.

If finding a gift is hard to do
our wishing well is just for you!
A gift of money is placed in the well,
then make a wish but do not tell!
If it is however a gift you find,
please feel assured
we will not mind.

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 are trying to grow a money tree
A difficult task you would agree
But it’s something that we really need
Perhaps you would care to plant a seed.

These two love birds have it all
family, friends and so much more.
If a gift you intend to help their nest
and you need some assistance, may we suggest
a donation in their little bird cage
to assist them along on their next life stage.
Envelopes will be left in the reception room
to bestow a gift upon the Bride and Groom.

To support us on our special day
you may wish to follow with tradition and bring a gift.
Or alternatively you may like to help us
make our honeymoon a little more special.
For this reason we have chosen a wedding treasure chest.
The treasure chest will be at the reception
where we can receive your best wishes and contribution.

Diapers, bottles, clothes galore
we have some but still need more.
If you could pitch-in to help with these,
The parents-to-be would sure be pleased.
With your donation, your name please don’t tell,
it’s just a little contribution 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
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 a 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 all thanks to you!
And in return for your kindness we’re sure
that one day soon you’ll get what you wished for!

Like little birds who built their home with care
we have every stick and every little chair
We have each other and that’s the best
But should you wish to honour us with a gift
Just pop it in our nest!
