    My FH and I have been together for 12yrs and have 4 children..
    we already own our house and everything we need so we don’t
    really need anything else for it.. the one thing we do need though
    is a holiday -we have had 2 nights away in the past 12yrs
    (which was not consecutively, my FH works away and is only
    home for 4 days every couple of weeks)
    so for our wedding we have decided to have a wishing well.. i have
    been thinking of ideas to write on another card separately to the invites
    and have come up with the following, so just after other brides opinions
    on whether it’s tacky or not
     

    /* Style Definitions */
    table.MsoNormalTable
    {mso-style-name:”Table Normal”;
    mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;
    mso-tstyle-colband-size:0;
    mso-style-noshow:yes;
    mso-style-priority:99;
    mso-style-parent:””;
    mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt;
    mso-para-margin-top:0cm;
    mso-para-margin-right:0cm;
    mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt;
    mso-para-margin-left:0cm;
    line-height:115%;
    mso-pagination:widow-orphan;
    font-size:11.0pt;
    font-family:”Calibri”,”sans-serif”;
    mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri;
    mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin;
    mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri;
    mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;
    mso-fareast-language:EN-US;}

    We have done things round the other way
    The house and family before this day
    We have the things that set up a place
    And we are starting to run short of space
    Therefore the gift we would love best
    Is a donation to our treasure chest
    So we can enjoy some time away
    With no kids wondering astray
    Please don’t feel obligated;
    It’s up to you
    But it would be a little more special
    Being just us two
    As we begin the rest of our life
    Together forever as Husband and Wife

    Hi Mikellie
    I wrote this on our invites:

    The most important thing for us is your presence during the day to celebrate our marriage and gifts are by no means expected.
     
    If however, you do feel you would like to give something, then any contribution towards our first home deposit would be very much appreciated.

    That’s such a sweet note … I love it!
    Though I would remove these 4 lines:
    Please don’t feel obligateed;
    It’s up to you
    But it would be a little more special
    Being just us two.
    I’m suggesting this because it should be known to the guests that it’s not obligated so you don’t need to spell it out to them and “would be a little more special” has a connotation that its not special with the kids (but we know that’s not the case 😉 ). Keep it short and simple and cut out those lines and it will be perfect!! Love it….! And very creative. That’s my two scents worth anyway.
