engagement wishing well quotes

Whether you’re asking for a loan, a pay raise or for guests to contribute to a wishing well at your wedding, requests for money can be difficult, if not downright embarrassing.

That’s why asking guests for cash presents rather than traditional wrapped gifts can be awkward.

However, with many couples already living together before marriage and so many who, individually, have their homes already set up with the items they need, it’s a request that’s becoming more and more common.

Of course, that’s not the only reason couple’s request cash gifts. Some genuinely need the money, others wish to put it towards, say, a honeymoon or a house deposit, perhaps even towards renovations or a bigger present such as a painting, something that constitutes a single, really big wedding present that they really want and will always remember, like a pet or a car.

And then there are the couples who just prefer cash.

Regardless of the reasons, it can still be uncomfortable asking your guests for presents of money and, as such, couples have come up with a more diplomatic means of doing so, wishing well poems.

Wishing well poems are a gentle way for couples to ask for cash gifts in the hopes of not offending guests. As you’ll see from the examples below, wishing well wording varies in length and diplomacy. Some are gentle and funny, others make their message immediately clear.


The term ‘wishing well poem’ comes from the fact that many couples provide a wishing well (though now it can be in the form of suitcases, birdcages, even just pretty boxes) into which guests can place their money-filled envelopes before making a wish, usually for the couple. However, they’re also known as Money Trees and Treasure Chests, among other things and, of course, many cultures feature such celebrated wedding traditions as pinning money to the bride’s dress or filling bride’s purse with money during the reception.

The aim of such traditions, which started long before people lived together before marrying, was always to ensure the bride and groom walked way at the end of their big day with a small nest egg to start their married life. Guests who put in what they could afford if they could afford anything at all.

So, just keep in mind that though you may prefer cash, your guests may not. Perhaps they don’t have the money to give or maybe they may prefer to give you something particularly special that you will treasure as something you received on your wedding day. Either way, if you are going down the wishing well route, be sure to make it clear that cash presents are not mandatory and that you are merely making a request, not demanding guests hand over cold hard cash.

You can either add the poems onto your invitation or, as so many couples do, simply print it out on a notelet or small slip of paper and leave it for guests to decided what they wish to do, but also what they can afford.

Here are some of our favourite wishing well poems:

1: Do not tell

“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.”

2: Short but sweet

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.

3. Make a wish

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.

4. Cash money

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!

5. Honeymoon in a foreign land

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!

(From reader Kalysha)

6. Wishing well wedding

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!
(from reader Adrianna)

If poetry is not your style, you can just word the requests politely, something along the lines of:

The most important thing is to have you with us on our special day. No gifts are needed or expected, however, we have been asked what we need or would like and,
if you do wish to give us something, a little cash to spend on our honeymoon would be very much appreciated.

The 6 Best Wishing Well Wording Examples – Wishing Well Wording Ideas

In today’s post I am going to show you The 6 Best Wishing Well Wording Examples that I have come across since starting my wedding stationery business several years ago.

I have seen all kinds of wording, layouts and poems when it comes to Wishing Wells, and today I am going to share only my absolute top picks.

Finding the right Wishing Well wording can be the final touch that brings your invitation set together. On the contrary, there is nothing worse than sending off your beautifully designed invites, but feeling unsettled about the wording inside.

By the way, did you know today’s post comes with a Free Printable Wishing Well Sign for you to enjoy?

The 6 Best Wishing Well Wording Examples

Despite how wonderful I think Wishing Wells are, you may find it tricky to hone in on the right wording for yours. So, behold, out of all the wishing well wording examples I have come across these are my top 3!

Wishing Well Wording Example 1

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.
Place a gift of money 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.

Wishing Well Wording Example 2

We’ve collected most things over the years
from household appliances to holiday souvenirs

With everyone traveling from so afar
it might be hard fitting presents in the car

Our only wish is to see you on the day
celebrating in your own special way

But if you still wish to give a gift
Our honeymoon fund would appreciate a little lift

Wishing Well Wording Example 3

On the road to married life
we’ve collected many things to be husband and wife.

The honeymoon however, is another thing;
we had to choose between it and the wedding rings.

A donation to our wishing well would be appreciated in every way
as it will help to send us on a romantic holiday.

Wishing Well Wording Example 4

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.

Wishing Well Wording Example 5

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 love and presence on our wedding day too!

 

Wishing Well Wording Example 6

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!

Why does your Wishing Well Wording Matter?

Finding the right wording for your Wishing Well will:

  • Make you feel comfortable when your guests read it
  • Give your guests clarity about what kind of wedding gift will be appropriate (or appreciated)
  • Avoid any awkwardness or uncertainty among guests
  • Fit in with the rest of your wedding invitations and create a sense of flow

 

Why should you even have Wishing Well Cards?

There are a few benefits! Have you considered the following?

  • They eliminate the chance of duplicating gifts
  • Gift registries are the typical alternative but they can lock guests into purchasing from a particular store or brand
  • Wishing Wells enable guests to decide on their own budget, without being locked into a particular item or brand that will dictate the budget
  • They are more practical than having lots of gift boxes and large presents on the wedding day
  • My favourite point – they give you the choice of what to get
  • It’sok to ask for what you really need – your guests don’t want to give you something you don’t need or want

For these reasons, I truly believe that it’s worth getting a Wishing Well for your wedding day, and including Wishing Well Cards with your invitations.

 

Why A Wishing Well Anyway?

The tradition of Wishing Wells is steeped in history and has always been a sign of good luck, granting wishes when coins were tossed into the well. Adding a Wishing Well into the wording of your wedding invitation has now become an established tradition, giving your guests the opportunity to wish you a wonderful marriage as well as good luck and prosperity. Therefore Wishing Wells are not only common now, but have become quite a tradition when it comes to weddings.

A lot of couples feel awkward asking their guests for money, however you don’t need to feel uncomfortable adding Wishing Well wording to your invitations – most guests are delighted to have the worry of choosing an item taken off their hands, especially when they know that cash will give you the added gift of choice! So you can breathe a sign of relief; you don’t need to be afraid to add wishing well wording to your invitations or on a separate card!

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!
