Creative Ways to Tell Your Guests that Cash Gifts are Appreciated

Nowadays, more and more couples are opting to ask for cash gifts. Some of you might be wondering, is it okay to just ask for money on my wedding day? While in early tradition it was deemed inappropriate to even ask or request for any kind of gift when you tie the knot, today we see how times have changed. My personal take on this is for couples to still have a gift registry alongside a monetary request so that they can give their guests an option on what they prefer to give. A subtle way some couples request for cash gifts is through asking close family and friends to spread the information verbally while others share their preference during their pre-wedding events leading to the big day. Always keep in mind that gift giving is a gesture done out of love and should never be felt like a requirement. Besides, their presence on your wedding day is the greatest gift they can actually give you! If you’re wondering how to word all these in your invitations, we’ve actually researched a few creative ways for you to do it without coming out as too demanding.

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, a cash contribution would save a lot of strife!

We made a commitment, some time ago, Together through life, we were destined to go. To save you looking, shopping and buying, Here is an idea, we hope you’ll like trying! Come to our wedding, to wish us both well, And please make a donation to our wishing well.

If you were thinking of giving a gift to help us on our way, A gift of money in a card would really make our day!

Now we are to be Mr & Mrs We don’t need a wedding list of dishes We have two kettles, two toasters, two microwaves And we have dreams 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!

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 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 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.

We’ve lived together for quite a while, With all our pots and pans, And as we don’t need homely gifts, We have another plan! We know it’s not traditional, But it’s easier that’s for sure, To have no wedding list at all, Your attendance means much more! For those of you who do insist, We have a savings pot, A small gift to add to this, Would really mean a lot!

You’re invited to our wedding, when we both say ‘I Do’ And as you know we’ve been ‘I do’-ing for at least a year or two! We’ve been together many years, and have a lovely home, There’s not that many items we don’t already own. So if your thoughts were on a gift, your presence will suffice; But if you really feel the need, donations to a honeymoon would be really nice! The choice is really up to you and we’d just like to say; That most of all, we hope you come, enjoy yourselves, and have a lovely day!

We do not have a gifting list, our house is set with nothing missed. We'd like to go on honeymoon a place for us as bride and groom. We're asking for a cash donation to send us to our dream location.

We are sending out this invitation In hope you will join a celebration But if a gift is your intention May we take this opportunity to mention We have already got a kettle and toaster crockery, dinner mats and matching coasters So rather than something we’ve already got We would appreciate money for our honeymoon pot But most importantly we request That you come to our wedding as our guest.

We know it’s traditional to write a list But in this case there is a slight twist Our home is complete with the usual stuff And the things that we have are good enough Our dream is to honeymoon in a foreign land And walk along the beach hand in hand We hope you don’t think of us as being rude And that our request is not misconstrued But a contribution to our honeymoon pot Would be appreciated such a lot But the most important thing to say Is that you are there to celebrate our day!

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

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 envelope who can tell. Now that we have saved you all the fuss, We’d love it if you would come and celebrate with us!
