When asking guests for money instead of gifts, it can be tricky and come out wrong, so we have added a few poem ideas for you below:
We’ve just moved home and have filled it with stuff,
From books to sofas, we’ve certainly got enough!
Instead of more wine glasses, we’d really love some cash,
So that we can book a perfect honeymoon and head off in a dash.
A romantic beach break would really do the trick,
As soon as we can afford it, we’ll be on that plane quick!
We can’t wait to spend our wedding day with you,
We’ve been planning hard and spending money for a good year or two.
As we’re keen to start our married life in style,
An amazing honeymoon would really make us smile.
Instead of a gift list from a high street shop,
We’d really love some money so on a beach we can flop!
Your financial donation would truly mean a lot,
So thank you for contributing to our honeymoon pot!
In order to make our dreams come true,
We’d love to go on a honeymoon for a week or two.
Instead of a dinner set, a vase or a bowl,
A financial contribution would make our wedding experience whole.
We’ve created a bank account to save our honeymoon money,
We really appreciate it, and we can’t wait to go somewhere sunny!
We’ll be husband and wife for the rest of our life,
In our little home made for two.
But instead of a vase or a new kitchen knife,
We’d love to fly off to somewhere new.
A week on a beach would suffice and be ideal,
So instead of a gift, your contribution would help to buy us a hotel room or a romantic meal!
We’re looking forward to seeing you on our very special day,
We hope that it will be perfect in every single way.
As a couple we know that love is all we need forever,
But a honeymoon after our wedding would be great — however…
We’ve not got the money to take this very special trip,
And we hope that you can help us fulfil our dream, whether it be on a plane or a ship!
Some money would really be the perfect gift to give,
Instead of new pots and pans, for the house in which we live!
All the wedding planning has worn us out,
And a dream honeymoon would make us happy, no doubt!
But we’ve got a little problem and we’re wondering if you can help,
We’ve started up a honeymoon fund — any contribution would make us yelp!
