@ksus07:  I would place the invitation on the inside right and use a separate  card for the other information.

As you can probably guess, I would not feel comfortable asking for money. Even on occasions when we know people will want to bring a gift, like birthdays or weddings, it is not polite to not only indicate that you expect them, but to tell them what you want. You can use word of mouth for that.

@ksus07:  Maybe post a query about the planned reference to the wishing well on the Australia Board.It wouldn’t be the first time a FMIL was wrong about something.

I wouldn’t put a separate card behind the invitation. Your guests may remove the invitation from the envelope and not even notice the separate card. In the old days, I think they used to wrap inserts in tissue paper so people would read the invitation first.

@ksus07:  I like how they turned out. 

The only thing i am not a big fan about is the knot-image; 

to me this image doesn’t really go with the other images (heart, anchor, steering wheel…) because they are a lot more playfull / less detailed (than the knot); 

i’d either look for a different knot image or just lose it. 

 

Personally I am not opposed to have the wishing well info included. 

Where I live this is pretty common. I’d rather know that the couple prefers money over the blender, so I’d happily give money.

@ksus07:  

 I’m with @Kili: on both questions. I you can find another knot, that would be the cherry on the icing. And in Germany it’s super common nowadays for the people to ask for money. Folks usually have been living together so there’s really not much they need for the house. It’s usually included as a nice rhyme and will go sth like “yoyr attendance is enough for us to be happy but if you’d like to give a gift, a contribution so that we can have a nice honeymoon would be dearly appreciated”.
