Wishing Well Wording


Wishing Well Wording 1:
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

Wishing Well Wording 2:
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 Wording 3:
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!!

Wishing Well Wording 4:
Many of our guests have enquired
For a gift idea to be inspired 
Like many young couples today 
We have most 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 would not be much fun

Wishing Well Wording 5:
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.

Wishing Well Wording 6:
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.

Wishing Well Wording 7:
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 wishing well. The wishing well will be at the reception where we can receive your best wishes and contribution.

Poems And Quotes

A small quote or poem to your invitation will add a lovely personal touch.

If I had a star for every time you made me smile,
I'd hold the universe in my hands.

To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides

This day I will marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, love

As our marriage brings new meaning to love,
so our love brings new meaning to life

An answered prayer he is to me.
My greatest joy she will always be.
And so this day we'll pledge our love
In front of friends, family and God above.

A friendship that was shared by two has grown into a love so true.

Some people come into our lives, leave footprints in our hearts, and we are never ever the same

Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.

With an endless love we'll share our thoughts, our dreams, ourselves
Together we've walked hand in hand, heart to heart, with love on our side we never shall part.

For hearing my thoughts,
understanding my dreams,
and being my best friend...
For filling my life with music

Love fills the moment,
and the moment begins eternity
Love fills a lifetime,
and a lifetime begins this hour
Love is the wind, the tide, the waves, the sunshine.
Fairytales aren't always make believe.
This fairytale begins with our love,
beginning at forever and ending at never.

Love fills the moment and the moment brings eternity.
Love fills the lifetime and the lifetime begins now.

The world is more brilliant when memories are shared
and dreams are realized together.

The first time I saw your face and felt your heart so close to mine,
I knew our joy would fill the world and last till the end of time

As unique as a seashell, as deep as the sea
As eternal as the waves, our love is meant to be

And so today, my world it smiles.
Your hand in mine, we will walk the miles.


This is our moment, a moment when two souls unite.
I give you my all and ask for nothing but you.


It is love, from the first time I pressed my hand into yours.

Some people touch us for a moment, 
and some for a season
and some remain with us for a lifetime
In each other, we have found the one
with whom we will spend the rest of our lives
loving, honoring and cherishing

All that I am, 
All that I have been,
All that I will ever be...
I offer now to you

Like a garden in the Spring
life is full of wonderful things.
Their eyes met and from the start
love was planted in their hearts.
