Wedding Money Poems:

How to Ask for Money Instead of Gifts

A Hidden Gem

Poems for Wedding Stationery


Congratulations you are getting married! You might have been living together for a while or you may just want to have a few special nights/weeks away on that dream honeymoon.

How do you ask your guests? I get really embarrassed asking for money but what is the point of having 3 kettles and 2 toasters when you are looking at your dream destination in a holiday brochure? I think that it is the norm now as so many couples opt to live together before getting married, some have even got children before they choose to say their vows. I would happily give money over buying a present as it is so difficult trying to find the perfect gift, but knowing that I might have bought a sangria or two on a holiday full of memories really warms my heart.

The other thing is that in the time of technology we love doing it all online! Most people have wedding websites where they have a special link that you can just send money, now how easy is that no faffing with cash, no having to go to the bank with a cheque just click and the money is there! Ready for a new pair of flip flops or however they choose to spend their wedding pot.

How do you do it though? you can’t just simply put no presents just money, can you? Some might but hey, I have put together a few ideas, let me know what you think.

If you need any more help with your stationery then please feel free to drop me a line and I will be on hand to help.


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 tying the knot and we just can’t wait,

We knew it would happen on our very first date.

As we’ve got our home dressed up with accessories,

We don’t really think that a wedding gift list is necessary.

But if you did want to give something to help us on our way,

Some money in a card would truly make our day!

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 haven’t included a gift list in our invite,

As we have everything — it just wasn’t right…

To ask for more things for the life we lead,

What we’d really love is a good holiday indeed!

If you were thinking of a gift for us to start our married life, some money would make us a very happy husband and wife!

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 that 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 haven’t got a wedding list
The reasons we will explain
It’s to save you all the hassle
As shopping is a pain.

We thought we’d ask you all
For something else instead
A small contribution
For us to take a holiday in the med

So if you’d like to contribute
Towards our honeymoon
We offer you our heart felt thanks
With love the bride and groom

The wedding has come, its here at last what present shall I get? I hear you ask a set of glasses, towels or a toaster, vases, plates or even some coasters.

These things we already have in our nest so if we may we’d like to suggest a gift of money would be best.

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!

We’ll soon be saying ‘I Do’,

And for a gift, if you haven’t got a clue,

Then we’d really love some cash,
So that for our honeymoon we can splash,

Out on an amazing and romantic trip for two!

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!

As we’ve lived together for a year or two,

We really don’t need anything new.

But if you were thinking of getting us a small wedding gift,

Some money for our honeymoon wouldn’t go amiss.
