Poem 1 We know it's not traditional it's not the way it's done But instead of a wedding
list we'd like a bit of sun. Please do not think of us as rude please do not take
offence We do not want to upset you, that's not the way it's meant. We've lived together
quite a while and all the bills are paid We've got our plates, our pots and pans,
our plans have all been made. So if you'd like to give a gift to help us celebrate Some
money for a honeymoon we would appreciate
Poem 2 The love of family and friends Bring happiness that never ends Each one of you
as guests we’ll treasure You’ll fill our day with so much pleasure While wedding presents
are so nice Your presence really will suffice But if a gift is on your mind Your contribution
would be kind We have a dream fund on the go Each welcome gift will help it grow But
the greatest gift is that you’ll say You’d love to share our wedding day
Poem 3 The
wedding has come, it’s here at last "What present shall I get?" I hear you ask. A set
of glasses, towels or a toaster, Vases, plates or even a coaster. These things we already
have in our nest, So a gift of money, we'd like to suggest. We know reading this some
may be offended. We hope you’re not as this wasn't intended. So please don't think
we are being funny, If we just say "can we please have money"?
Poem 4 We’ve been together for a while, Our home is made with love and smiles, Most
things we need we've already got, And in our home we can't fit a lot! 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 wish but shhh don't tell! Once we've replaced
the old with the new, We can look back and say it was thanks to you! And in return
for your kindness, we're sure, That one day soon you will get what you wished for.
Please don't be offended at this type of request, As our day is complete having you
as our guest.
Poem 5 The date has been set and we'd love you to come, To our wedding
in (place name), a long way for some, All you must do, is decide what to wear, Then
polish your jewellery and comb up your hair.
Don't worry about gifts, don't buy us
a yacht, The things that we need, we've already got. Our home is quite compact, we
may have to move Then our storage and space will surely improve.
Don't go out shopping
or get yourself stressed, Don't alter your plans for a pre wedding rest. If you want
to be generous, despite what we've said, Then save all the hassle and do this instead.....
know how to word this but will give it a shot.. Contributions are most welcome, we'll
go somewhere hot! A honeymoon would be marvellous, to start off our life, In our beautiful
journey, as new husband and wife!
Poem 6 To save you looking, shopping or buying.
Here is an idea, we hope you like trying! Deciding which gift can sometimes be hard Instead,
why not just put some money into a card, Please come to our wedding in best suits
and frocks And put the card into our wedding post box Now make a wish that's special
to you We'll be hoping that your wish comes true Please don't be offended at this
type of request, You will make our day just being our guest.
Poem 7 For a couple of
years we’ve lived in sin, We have a toaster, a kettle and a stainless steel bin, Saucepans
and towels we have many, Corkscrews and flannels we don’t need any, We just want you
with us on our special day, But if you insist on a gift anyway, We hope you don’t think
we’re being funny! But we’d really appreciate a gift of money, We’ll put it all together
and buy something that’s best, As a reminder of our day and our wonderful guests.
8 More than just kisses so far we share, Our home has been made with love and care, Most
things we need we've already got, And in our home we can't fit a lot! A Post Box we
thought would be great, (But only if you wish to participate), A gift of vouchers,
or even money, Will be greatly appreciated (though a little funny)! And once we've
replaced the old with the new, We can look back and say it was thanks to you!
9 In a wedding invitation, you usually find some lists, For venues, menus and hotels,
and also for the gifts But this one is unusual, it comes in a different way, As we're
not asking for presents, but for something else today Now please don't think we're
selfish, or that this comes from greed, But we've lived together for a while, so there's
not that much we need We would appreciate help though, to send us on our way, And allow
us to have our honeymoon, in a land quite far away So now the point of all this rhyme,
the thing that we would like, Isn't towels, toasters or microwaves, but pounds and
pence alike And now you know the reason, behind this cheeky accord, Please help to
give us memories, of a dream honeymoon abroad
Poem 10 We have been together quite a while, And have many pots and pans, We don't
need gifts in the usual style, And we have another plan. We know its not traditional,
Not the way its normally done, But rather than a wedding list, We would love a bit
of sun! So if you would like to give a gift, And send us on our way, A donation to
our honeymoon Would really make our day!
Post Boxes & Wishing Wells You can buy one or have great fun making your own
