Wishing Well cards

  • Assembling Your Wedding Stationery

    You’ve ordered your wedding stationery online and received them from DreamDay Invitations, stocked up on postage stamps and you’re all prepped to get your wedding invitations sent out this weekend - but what is the correct way to assemble them, especially when you have multiple cards in your wedding stationery suite?

    First of all, don’t look at this task on your wedding to-do list as a boring chore - enjoy it! Open up a bottle of wine, put some music on and get busy with your fiance or your bridesmaids (sure saves a lot of time!) and start an at-home assembly line while making a regular party of it!

    Usually when assembling your wedding stationery, the general rule of thumb is that wedding cards are assembled according to size and the largest card (which is normally the wedding invitation card) goes at the bottom and the rest of the cards are placed face up. However, if you have opted for a folded wedding invitation, the reply card and other enclosure cards should be placed within and not above it.

    Generally, the wedding reception card follows the invitation and is placed directly on top - remember to always place the reception card face up. The enclosure cards (directions/accommodations card or the wishing well card) should follow and should be placed face up on top of the reception card. The reply envelope will then placed printed side down above the enclosure cards - the envelope flap should always be on the left. Help save your wedding guests the time spent searching for stamps and pre-stamp your reply envelopes before adding to the wedding stationery suite.

    Once you’ve assembled the wedding stationery, it’s time to move onto placing them in envelopes. While some couples opt to have their envelopes addressed in calligraphy, others don’t have the time or budget that allow it and instead opt to take the convenient and affordable route of having their stationer print names and address directly on the front of the envelopes - such a time saver! The wedding invitation suite should be inserted left edge first in the case of a single card invitation and folded edge first for a folded wedding invitation. Be careful when sealing your envelopes as if it’s moistened too much, the envelope edge can end up looking puckered. We recommend using a bottled envelope moistener for a controlled action. To finish off the look of your wedding invitations (especially in the case of a formal wedding) you may want to consider adding a personalised monogram as a seal at the back of the envelopes.

  • Wishing Well Cards to Include with Your Wedding Invitations

    You’re getting married and beginning a new life together. Maybe you already have an extensive glory box in which you have many of the goods you will need to set up a new home, or maybe you have had your own place for quite a while now. A gift of cash for a deposit on a new home, or cash for your honeymoon, or maybe you are passionate for a particular charity and wish your gifts to be a donation to your favourite charity, whatever the reason, a Wishing Well card is perfect answer to make it known to your guests your preference for money when it comes to your wedding gifts. Dreamday Invitations has designed a Wishing Well card to match and team with every Wedding Invitation design available.

    Wishing Well cards are usually sent out with your Wedding Invitations. They are generally included on a separate card within the Wedding Invitation envelope. It is sometimes considered not to be appropriate etiquette to include your wishing well words on the actual wedding invitations. There are many eloquent and beautiful verses available that have been specially created just for Wishing Well cards, or make up your own, as long as the words reflect your own personality and style, and give your guests the necessary information as to gift giving.

    We have given some lovely examples of Wishing Well wording for use on your Wishing Well cards here for you.

    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.

    Many of our guests have enquired for a gift idea to be inspired. Like many young couples today, we have a lot of things anyway. If you would like to give, it is our request, for something for our treasure chest. A gift of money you can afford, is just what we need, you can be assured! Without the help of this little pun, our honeymoon might not be as much fun.

    To save you looking, shopping or buying, here is an idea, we hope you like trying. Come to our wedding, to wish us both well, and bring a small sack, to throw in our wishing well. Fill it with paper all colours will do, gold is our favourite but silver will do. Now that we have saved you, all of that fuss, We hope you will come, and celebrate with us.

    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!

    To support us on our special day, you may wish to follow with tradition and bring a gift. Or alternatively, you may like to help us make our honeymoon a little more special. For this reason we have chosen a wedding wishing well. The wishing well will be at our wedding reception if you wish to participate.
