GIFT POEMS

You will find your Guests will want to buy a Wedding gift, not because they feel obligated but simply because they do.

It is always a good idea to include some information within your Wedding Invitation about your preferences, many Bride and Groom’s feel anxious about including such information but it’s becoming more and more popular so guests tend to expect it.

Whether you have a traditional gift lift or are asking for money towards your home/honeymoon, we have gathered some example wording for your inspiration.

ASKING FOR THE GIFT OF MONEY
EXAMPLE A

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.

EXAMPLE B

SO WHAT DO YOU GET FOR THE BRIDE AND GROOM, WHOSE HOUSE HAS 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 JUST 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!

 

EXAMPLE C

WE’VE BEEN TOGETHER QUITE A WHILE  AND HAVE A LOVELY HOME, THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY ITEMS THAT WE DON’T ALREADY OWN.

SO IF YOUR THOUGHTS WERE ON A GIFT, YOUR PRESENCE WILL SUFFICE, BUT IF YOU REALLY FEEL THE NEED THEN MONEY WOULD BE NICE.

THE CHOICE IS REALLY UP TO YOU AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SAY WE HOPE YOU COME, ENJOY YOURSELVES  AND HAVE A LOVELY DAY.

 

EXAMPLE D

WE HAVEN’T GOT A WEDDING LIST, THE REASON WE’LL EXPLAIN, IS TO SAVE YOU ALL THE HASSLE AS SHOPPING IS A PAIN, WE’VE BEEN TOGETHER FOR A WHILE, AND HAVE MOST THINGS WE NEED, SO VOUCHERS, CASH OR CHEQUES WOULD BE GRATEFULLY RECEIVED,

THE CHOICE IS YOURS, SO PLEASE DON’T FUSS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF ALL  IS THAT YOU COME AND CELEBRATE WITH US!

BUT, IF YOU’D LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE, TO OUR SOFT & COSY ROOMS, OUR HEARTFELT THANKS GO OUT TO YOU – WITH LOVE THE BRIDE & GROOM

EXAMPLE E

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.

 

EXAMPLE F

MORE THAN JUST KISSES SO FAR WE’VE SHARED, OUR HOME HAS BEEN MADE WITH LOVE AND CARE. MOST THINGS WE NEED WEʼVE 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 THE WELL, THEN MAKE A WISH … BUT DO NOT TELL. ONCE WEʼVE REPLACED THE OLD WITH THE NEW, WE CAN LOOK BACK AND SAY IT WAS THANKS TO YOU!

AND IN RETURN FOR YOUR KINDNESS WEʼRE SURE, THAT ONE DAY SOON YOU’LL GET WHAT YOU WISHED FOR!

 

EXAMPLE G

WE ARE SENDING OUT THIS INVITATION, AND HOPE YOU WILL JOIN OUR CELEBRATION.
IF TO SEND A GIFT IS YOUR INTENTION, IN MODESTY WE WOULD LIKE TO MENTION.

WE HAVE ALREADY GOT A KETTLE AND A TOASTER, CROCKERY, DINNER MATS AND COASTERS.
SO RATHER THAN SOMETHING WE HAVE ALREADY GOT, PLEASE GIVE US MONEY FOR OUR SAVINGS POT.
BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE REQUEST, THAT YOU TURN UP AS OUR WEDDING GUEST.

 

TRADITIONAL GIFT LIST
EXAMPLE A

WE WOULD PREFER YOUR WEDDING PRESENCE, RATHER THAN YOUR WEDDING PRESENTS.

BUT IF YOU REALLY DO INSIST, THEN PLEASE VISIT JOHN LEWIS FOR OUR GIFT LIST: ([INSERT GIFT LIST WEBSITE LINK OR NUMBER)

 

EXAMPLE B

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BUY US A GIFT, SUGGESTIONS CAN BE FOUND ON OUR JOHN LEWIS GIFT LIST (INSERT GIFT LIST WEBSITE LINK OR NUMBER.)

 

 

EXAMPLE C

PLEASE DON’T FEEL OBLIGED TO GIVE US A GIFT –  ALL WE REALLY WANT IS TO HAVE A LOVELY WEDDING  WHICH WE CAN SHARE WITH OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. 

BUT FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO GET US SOMETHING WE WOULD LOVE JOHN LEWIS VOUCHERS OR SOMETHING FROM OUR GIFT LIST WITH JOHN LEWIS.

CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS HONEYMOON
EXAMPLE A

WHEN THINKING OF A GIFT FOR US WE ASK IF YOU’D PLEASE CONSIDER CONTRIBUTING TO OUR HONEYMOON TO MAKE IT ALL THE SWEETER.

OUR HOUSE IS FULL OF ALL THE THINGS A COUPLE COULD REQUIRE,  AND SO A HOLIDAY AWAY IS WHAT WE MOST DESIRE.

THEN WHILE WE’RE RELAXING ON THE BEACH OR BY THE POOL SO BLUE WE’LL SIT BACK AND KNOW THAT IT IS TRULY THANKS TO YOU!

EXAMPLE B

WE KNOW IT’S NOT TRADITION IT’S NOT THE WAY IT’S DONE, BUT INSTEAD OF A WEDDING LIST WE’D LIKE A BIT OF SUN.

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.

WE WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR HELP THOUGH, TO SEND US ON OUR WAY, A CONTRIBUTION TO OUR HONEYMOON IN A LAND QUITE FAR AWAY.

BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE REQUEST, YOU COME TO OUR WEDDING AS OUR GUEST. TO SHARE WITH US OUR SPECIAL DAYAND HAVE SOME FUN ALONG THE WAY.

 

EXAMPLE C

YOUR PRESENCE AT OUR WEDDING IS GIFT ENOUGH, BUT IF YOU DO WISH TO BUY US SOMETHING, A CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS OUR DREAM HONEYMOON WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

 

EXAMPLE D

IF YOU’RE THINKING OF GIVING US A GIFT, TO HELP US ON OUR WAY, A GIFT OF CASH TOWARDS OUR HONEYMOON, WOULD REALLY MAKE OUR DAY.

THEN WHILE WE’RE RELAXING ON THE BEACH, OR BY THE POOL SO BLUE, WE’LL SIT BACK AND KNOW THAT, IT IS TRULY THANKS TO YOU!

 

EXAMPLE E

IF YOUʼRE THINKING OF GIVING A GIFT, TO HELP US ON OUR WAY, A GIFT OF CASH TOWARDS OUR HONEYMOON, WOULD REALLY MAKE OUR DAY.

HOWEVER, IF YOU PREFER TO PURCHASE A GIFT, FEEL FREE TO SURPRISE US IN YOUR OWN WAY.
