In Lieu of Gifts

Tasteful and classy wording samples to ask for money instead of gifts on your wedding.



We haven't settled yet in a home, so we don't have room for anything new. Your presence as a guest is all that we request. But if you insist on giving a gift, some pennies for our new life would give us a lift.


Soon you will hear our wedding bells, as friends and family wish us well. Our household treasures are not brand new, we have twice the things we need for two. Since we have our share of dishes and bedding, we’re having instead a wishing well wedding. But more important we ask of you, your prayers of love and blessings too.


With all that we have, we’ve been truly blessed. Your presence and prayers are all that we request. But if you desire to give nonetheless, we suggest a coin for our treasure chest.


As love is what the night is all about, your presence is one we can’t celebrate without. But should you still believe that a gift is worth giving, a small envelope for our future is a delightful blessing.


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


We are looking forward to your presence not your presents but for those of you who wish to give something, an enveloped gift would be thrilling!


To save you looking, shopping and buying, here is an idea we hope you’ll like trying! Come to our wedding to wish us both well and if you please, drop a coin in our wishing well.


To save you shopping, looking and buying, a gift of currency, we thought you’d like trying. Don’t go overboard or rob any banks. Anything will make us smile with hearts full of thanks. Now that we have saved you all the fuss, we hope you will come and celebrate with us.


Moving to another country? This is understood that you cannot bring their gifts when you move.


The couple will reside in <Australia> after the wedding.


In this happiest moment of our lives, your presence is present enough. But if we are honored with a gift, a coin for our treasure chest will be much appreciated, as we have to set up our home in <Singapore>.
