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!
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.
