Money Poems....

hi ladies

everyone keeps asking about money poems so here's all the ones i have managed to get, hope they can be of some use..........















So what do you get


For the bride and groom


Whose house needs things


In every room?


When shopping for a present please don't be rash


As there is always the option


To just give cash!


We hope you don't find


Our request to be funny


But we really would appreciate


A gift of money












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 Take an envelope, make a wish, for the couple, will come true. A token for the couple to help them begin, will be welcomed too. Please take the time to make a wish before the day is through.













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.











We've been together for 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










If you was thinking of giving us 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.












To save you looking, shopping or buying.


Here is an idea, we hope you like trying.


Come to our wedding, to wish us both well.


And bring this small sack, to throw in our wishing well.


Fill it with paper all colours will do, gold is our favourite but silver will do.


Now that we have saved you, all that fuss.


We hope you will come, and celebrate with us.






(bit similar to one above)









To save you looking, shopping or buying.


Here is an idea, we hope you like trying!


Come to our wedding, to wish us both well.


And make some use of our little wishing well.


Just put some money into a card,


Now make a wish.....see that wasn't hard!


Now that we have saved you, all that fuss.


We hope you will come, and celebrate with us.


Please don't be offended at this type of request,


As our day will be complete having you as our guest.












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 any banks,


Any little thing will make us smile with thanks.


We supply the wishing well,


No wrapping, an envelop who can tell.


Now that we have saved you all the fuss,


It would be appreciated if you would come


And celebrate with us












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.

    thats a good idea bambi, just have to make sure what you want they accept visa electron, they take it in most places now anyway.

    Yeah, they aslo seem a little bit more like a gift than an envelope of money or a cheque just in case people feel funny about it.
  • natasha_uk25natasha_uk25 Posts: 2,253
    well on the back of our poems we have said that incase people feel funny about it we have compiled a small gift list with debenhams. Then at least we don't get no scary stuff we dont want lol
