Asking for money instead of gifts at your wedding can be a bit tricky but here are some great money poems for weddings that kindly ask your guests not to buy gifts but to rather give you gift vouchers or money. I have chosen a few to help you with the task.
1) 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,
And in out 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.
2)Friends, as you are well aware we already have most items needed to -set up house’.
This is the reason for us choosing a wedding wishing well.
At the reception there will be a wishing well in which we would love to receive your greeting card and contribution.
This will be a great way for us to pool together and buy ourselves something quite luxurious, or to make our honeymoon even better.
3)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.
4)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 fund, please see below
Each welcome gift will help it grow
But the greatest gift is that you’ll say
You’d love to share our wedding day
5)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 gift vouchers, would save a lot of strife
