The gift list wording can be the most difficult to word. Many find it a bit awkward and unsure how to add this without offending people, but remember, your guests will want to buy you a gift and will be happy to know what kind of gift you would like to receive; be it from a gift list, money or help towards your honeymoon.

The gift list wording may vary slightly depending if the invites are from the couple or parents. Most of our invites have space to show your gift list wording along with your wedding information, no need to insert extra bits of paper into your invite!

As there are so many different views and opinions out there on gift list wording, we have listed examples below including straight forward to-the-point wording and poems.


 

Honeymoon Gift Wording

 

a) Should you wish to give a wedding gift, we would greatly appreciate a contribution towards our honeymoon.

b) Your presence at our wedding is gift enough, but if you do wish to buy us something, a contribution towards our dream honeymoon would be appreciated.

c) The biggest gift you can give us is your attendance at the celebration of our marriage, however, should you wish to give a wedding gift, we would be more than happy to receive a donation towards our honeymoon.

d) If you're thinking of giving us a gift,
to help us on our way,
a gift of cash towards our honeymoon,
would really make our day.
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!

e) If youʼre thinking of giving a gift,
to help us on our way,
a gift of cash towards our honeymoon,
would really make our day.
However, if you prefer to purchase a gift,
feel free to surprise us in your own way.

f) The most important gift to us is to have you share our day, but should you wish to contribute in some other way, then a contribution to our honeymoon would be very gratefully received.

g) We hope you can join us in celebrating our marriage! Please know that your presence is the best gift you could provide. Please do not feel obligated to give anything else. But should you feel inclined, we are very much looking forward to a honeymoon and any contribution towards that will always be sincerely appreciated.

h) Eva and Kian are not having a traditional gift list and your company on their big day is all they could ask for. However, if you do wish to give them a present then a contribution to their honeymoon fund would be greatly appreciated!

i) If you would like to get us a gift, please bring along some dollars for our honeymoon.

j) In a wedding invitation
You usually find some lists,
For venues, menus and hotels,
And also for gifts.
But this one is unusual,
It comes in a different way,
As weʼre not asking for presents,
But for something else today.
Now please donʼt think weʼre selfish,
Or that this comes from greed,
But weʼve lived together for a while,
So thereʼs not that much we need.
We would appreciate help though,
To send us on our way,
And allow us to have our honeymoon,
In a land quite far away.
So now the point of this rhyme,
The thing that we would like,
Isnʼt towels, toasters or microwaves,
But pounds and pence alike.
And now you know the reason,
Behind this cheeky accord,
Please help to give us memories,
Of a dream honeymoon abroad.

k) We know itʼs not traditional,
Itʼs not the way itʼs done,
But instead of a wedding list,
Weʼd like a bit of sun.
So, if youʼd like to give a gift,
To help us celebrate,
Some money towards a honeymoon,
Weʼd much appreciate.

l) Our lives together have already begun,
And we have nearly everything under the sun,
Your gift to us would be to come and stay
at the hotel and enjoy our day.
For those of you who feel the need,
Pennies for our honeymoon
Would be very nice indeed!


 


 

Gift of Money

 

m) We haven't got a gift list, for all of you to see,
Because as you all know we never can agree!
But if you'd like to help us start our married life,
cash or high street vouchers, would save a lot of strife.

n) More than just kisses so far we've shared,
Our home has been made with love and care.
Most things we need weʼve already got,
Like a toaster and kettle, pans and pots.
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 do not tell.
Once weʼve replaced the old with the new,
We can look back and say it was thanks to you!
And in return for your kindness weʼre sure,
that one day soon you'll get what you wished for!

o) 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 savings pot.
But, most importantly, we request,
That you turn up as our wedding guest.

p) If your thoughts were on a gift,
Your presence will suffice.
But if you really feel the need,
Then the gift of Sterling would be nice.
The choice is really up to you,
And we would like to say,
We hope you come, enjoy yourselves,
And have a lovely day.
