Asking for money poems

20 November 2008 31,987 views No Comment

Last week, I had a post on asking for money at the wedding. My fiance really liked the poem that goes:
If you’d like to give us something

To help us on our way

A gift of money

Would really make our day.

But then I found a ton of other poems which were so nice. Its a pity they dont fit on our wedding invites but perhaps I could put them on the website? 

Our life together has already begun

And we almost have everything under the sun,

So we both thought we would make a suggestion,

To save you from all the searching and guessing,

Instead of spending lots and lots,

Just put some money with your card,

And place it into our Moneybox,

Large amounts are not anticipated,

Any amount would be appreciated,

Now that we have saved you all the fuss,

We can’t wait for you to celebrate with us!


We are looking forward to your presence, not your presents, but for those who wish to give a gift, we would appreciate donations to our honeymoon


Alas! Friends and family, in sin we’ve been living,

And if you’re not yet sure what you plan on giving,

We have dozens of towels and a toaster or two,

Plenty of cutlery and glassware too. 

Some memories to last for ever,

Is what these newlyweds will truly treasure. 

We dream of visting faraway lands,

So come to you all, begging bowl in hand!

The gift we require needs no wrapping or tags, 

But we hope it will help us to pack our bags, 

And fly away on our first trip together, 

A honeymoon to remember forever.


We haven’t got a wedding list.

The reason we’ll explain.

its to save you all the trouble

As shopping is a pain


But if you’d like to contribute

To our special Day

Some money would be great

To get ourselves a treat

But, most importantly, we request,

That you turn up as our wedding guest


Our worldly possessions are plentiful as such,

On our wedding present list there really isn’t much,

A gift of currency is all we ask, To help us on our lifelong task


We’ve been together 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 it’s not traditional

It’s not the way it’s done

But instead of a wedding list

We’d like a bit of sun.


Please do not think of us as rude

Please do not take offence

We do not want to upset you

That’s not the way it’s meant.


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.


So if you’d like to give a gift

To help us celebrate

Some money for a honeymoon

We would appreciate


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 saving pot.

But, most importantly, we request,

That you turn up as our wedding guest
