We know it’s not tradition
It’s not the way it’s done,
But instead of a wedding list
We’d like a bit of sun!
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.
We would appreciate your help though...
To send us on our way,
A contribution to our honeymoon
Would really make our day!
But, most importantly, we request,
You come to our Wedding as our guest.
To share with us our special day
And have some fun along the way.
When thinking of a gift for us
We ask if you’d please consider
Contributing to our honeymoon
to make it all the sweeter.
Our house is full of all the things
a couple could require,
and so a holiday away
is what we most desire.
Then while we're relaxing on the beach
or by the pool so blue
we'll sit back and know
that it is truly thanks to you!
An exciting time is coming our way,
we can’t wait for you to share our special day!
We do but have just one request,
and that’s for you to please be our guest.
We don’t expect presents or gifts galore,
as having you there is all we ask for.
Laughter and fun is the aim of the day,
so no amount of gifts will take this away.
If a present is something that you’d like to give,
then please think of us and how we now live.
We have our pots and we have all our pans
but what we need is a helping hand.
So for you, we have another request,
after planning this wedding, we sure need a rest!
A honeymoon is just what we need,
so money towards this will be gratefully received.
But dont forget, above all the rest,
our day is complete having you as our guest!
Your presence without presents is enough to make our day,
We haven’t made a wedding list, of gifts, in any way,
Should you wish to give us cash,
we surely won’t say no,
So we can buy the things we like,
to help create our home.
More than just kisses so far we've shared,
Our home has been made with love and great care,
Most things we need, we have already got,
And in our small 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!
In return for your kindness, we are 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.
