What’s the best way to ask for a particular wedding present? Poem cards are a fun, heartfelt and tactful way of telling your guests that you really want money as a wedding gift, as Karla Hall from Scarlet Rose Invitations explains…
A gift poem is the ideal way of letting people know exactly what you’d really appreciate on your big day. From holiday vouchers to professional wedding lists and cash contributions, far from thinking you’re being cheeky, your loved ones will appreciate a nudge in the right direction and be relieved to be giving the perfect gift.
Increasingly popular with today’s modern brides and grooms, gift poems or ‘ask for cash’ poems can be generically worded to suit a wide range of couples, or tailored to your individual needs. Designed to be sent out along with – or even incorporated into – your wedding invitations, a poem card lets people know that, although it’s their presence, not presents, that matters most, there’s something specific you’d love if they’re planning on giving you a gift.
Everyone knows weddings are traditionally expensive – so don’t be afraid to ask for a cash gift. This way, you’re leaving it up to your guests to decide how much they’re happy to give, rather than putting a price tag on a particular present.
At Scarlet Rose Invitations, cash poems are part of our top-selling wedding stationery range. We have a selection of pre-written ask for cash poems available in a wide range of 60 stylish designs, enabling couples to match in their cash poems to the rest of their wedding stationery package. We’re also happy to tailor a poem to suit your specific requirements, or if you’re feeling particularly creative, swap our poem, for yours!
If you’re looking to write your own cash poem, it’s a good idea to keep it lighthearted but to the point – if you need some euros or dollars for your honeymoon, say precisely that. If it’s cash for a new conservatory, tell everyone. Guests prefer to know what their money is being spent on.
If you know what you want to say, but can’t seem to find the right words to make your poem rhyme or flow, we’re happy to help. Poetry is our forte, just get in touch and we’ll happily create a unique cash poem for a small fixed fee, then incorporate it into your favourite design from our extensive range.
For that extra special wow factor, there’s also the option to upgrade your print finish to a luxurious range of fine Italian and pearlescent cards in a variety of sizes and formats. To see more super styles and to discuss your individual needs, visit the Scarlet Rose eBay store or call the team on 01773 813302.
