Many couples struggle with how to word this on their wishing well card, but we will help you do this graciously and courteously. We have put together a collection of wishing well quotes and messages to take away your stress and struggle.

Our precious selection of poems or phrases embody simple sayings, are tastefully funny and promise to give you the chance to politely and properly set the expectation of the gift you and your partner are wanting and expecting.

The wording of your wishing well card that will accompany your engagement or wedding invitation is important as expected when it comes to asking your guests for money instead of a registry gift. Take a look at what we have put together!


Please be aware that gifts are not necessary.
Your presence is all that is required.
However, for your convenience
we have prepared a gift registry.

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.

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.

The tradition of the wishing well used on our
wedding day, is here both for your money gifts,
and for what you would like to say.
For your thoughts and good wishes we thank you all, so our wish to you is,
please enjoy our wedding day.

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.

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.

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.
Don’t go overboard or rob a bank,
Any little thing will make us smile with thanks!

Now that we have saved you all the fuss,
It would be appreciated if you would
Come and celebrate with us!

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.

More than just kisses,
so far we've shared,

with love and care.

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 deposited into a 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!

but we have it all,
household goods,
and so much more.

looking and buying,
a gift of currency,

or rob any banks,

you all the fuss,
we hope you will come,
