Many couples are well established before they marry and probably don't need lots of things to furnish a new home. For many a gift of money would be far more appreciated than a toaster. However, couples often feel awkward about asking for money instead of gifts.
I recently saw this poem and thought that saying it in verse was a great idea.
"We’re tying the knot and we just can’t wait,
We knew it would happen on our very first date.
As we’ve got our home dressed up with accessories,
We don’t really think that a wedding gift list is necessary.
But if you did want to give something to help us on our way,
Some money in a card would truly make our day!"
Maybe you might be inspired to pen your own poem - if so I'd love to read them.
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
