- Wedding: April 2011
My fiance and I decided a long time ago that we were not going to register anywhere,but instead ask for money in a clever, polite manner. Reason for this is we’ve lived together for just about 4 years now (he owns the house), when I moved from my 1st condo I had only lived in for 8 month in with him, I brought along everything I had that was all no more than 8 months from blankets and sheets, to pots and pans, to decorations, u name it. Oh yeh, he already had all of that stuff too!!
My friend had a “wedding wishing well” as her wedding, but it looked just like a big white box with a slot for envelops with a lock on it. I’ve looked and searched online and found mostly that white box, which is actually a “chest box”. I invisioned a wishing well made out of rocks or stones, or the more modern ones out of wood like these:

I’d like to have a modern looking one made like the 2nd one out of stone, however, I’m scared about the stone..and just think I should stick with a modern look. Add some flowers in the little bucket as there wouldn’t be water, and add a few things to glam it up a big (not girly, but elegent looking).
The closest ones is this one: http://www.aweddingwishingwell.com/wishingwellcompletesets.htm which I find to look cheap, I wish the lace was different, butterflies and silly things like that weren’t used, but thats the overall style of it i would want, except the slot is pretty small for envelops and the lock can easily be broken (although it will be frequently emptied by my father & some one wold be guarding it.. and of course it’s made in Europe and in euros (about 1.5USD = 1 euro), not to mention the cost of shipping! And the second on is this:

Does anyone have any suggestions? Know where online I can find one?? We aren’t into the whole tree thing, and I am a far from a DIY when it comes to this type of stuff!!
Also, since we are not going to register anywhere, and I don’t think its appropiate to ask for money at my bridal shower I wanted some opinions. We don’t really need anything, but I had this great idea that besides from all the “women adult gifts” I’d asked for, I would already register with my photographer to have 10 more pages added to our album, to upgrade the parent album, make a coffe table like guestbook, etc. Same with videographer, maybe a 3rd blu-ray DVD made or something.Those are things we would love to have, but don’t have it in our budget to get. What do you girls think about that?
I know I always write tons of stuff in my posts, but they all go hand-in-hand! Thanks in advance! Looking forward to some helpful advice!!!
