WISHING WELL

Verse #1

Our fairy tale and dreams have all come true
And our most special gift is to share it with you
We’ve chosen a wishing well for the day
That will help towards our future in every way

Verse #2

We’d love to have you with us when we say ‘I Do’!!
Your presence over presents is wonderful in our view
But if we’re honoured with a gift from you,
We’d be pleased if you wished us well
As you make a contribution to our wishing well

Verse #3

Your company, love and laughter on our wedding day
are the most special gifts we could ever receive.
Should you still wish to follow tradition and honour us with a wedding gift,
a contribution to our wishing well at the reception would be warmly received.
If you would prefer to surprise us with something more personal,
we are sure that whatever gift you choose will bring us years of joy.

Verse #4

The most important thing
Is to have you with us on our special day
No gifts are needed or expected.
However, if you still would like to bring a gift,
We would love you giving our honeymoon fund a lift.

Verse #5

With everyone travelling from afar
It may be hard to fit a present in the car
Our wish is only to see you on the day
Celebrating in your own special way
But if you want to still give a gift
We’d love you giving our honeymoon fund a lift

Verse #6

More than 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 our home we can’t fit a lot!
A wishing well we thought would be great
(but only if you wish to participate).
Most important we ask of you,
Your prayers of love and blessings too.
