Whether couples have a bridal registry or wishing well, they want their guests to know the best and perhaps easiest way to give a gift. If you have set up a gift registry, a small card will often be provided with your occasion ID on it.
An alternative to a gift registry is a Honeymoon registry in which a travel agency will be nominated to organise a honeymoon fund. The card presents details of the person to contact at the travel agency and this is a simple way for the guests to make a monetary contribution to the couple’s honeymoon, rather than giving cash or a traditional gift.
Wishing Well cards
In many cases, the couple will have a Wishing Well or something similar. This is very popular with couples who already have most of the household items they need. A Wishing Well card lets the guests know that there will be somewhere at the reception where they can place an envelope with money inside, in lieu of a gift-wrapped present.
In either case, you can have this type of message printed

Although couples often worry about wording this correctly, guests are almost always happy to comply with the request – it makes life easy and they know that their financial contribution is welcomed gratefully.
The wording can be in the form of a little poem (just Google “Wishing Well wording” to see the variety), but some of these are rather contrived! It is advisable to suggest that if a guest prefers to give a traditional gift, it will be welcomed – in this way, you are making everyone comfortable with their choice and method of gift giving.
