Wedding gift poem


Like a lot of young couples today, when it came to the gift list in our wedding invitations, there wasn’t a lot which we didn’t already have and so struggled to ask for anything specific. However, we felt quite rude simply stating, ‘please give us money!’ and so softened the blow with a little poem, written by me.

So here is it. Please feel free to use it in your invitation, should you wish – words are for sharing!

We do not need plates or mugs, champagne flutes, frames or rugs,
We have a vase, we have a clock, we do not need a chinese wok!
If you wish to give a present, there is a thing which would be pleasant,
It’s not a fork, it’s not a spoon, it’s cash towards our honeymoon!

Oh, and have a wonderful wedding day! x
