When people talk about wishing wells, the thing that first comes to mind is an image of a water well where you toss in a coin and make a wish. As a kid (or perhaps as an adult too!), you may have whispered your wishes to yourself beside that well while hoping your wish comes true as quickly as possible!
This idea has spawned the similar and time honoured concept of wedding wishing wells. At a wedding, you may see a customised “well” where guests can place their monetary gifts and well wishes to the married couple. These cash gifts are intended to help the newlyweds make their wishes come true – whether it’s their dream honeymoon, down payment for a new house or just about anything to get them started in their new life together.
Wedding wishing wells, have evolved in acceptance, manner and style. The modern trend of creating a wishing well online has become a popular option. The idea is practical, convenient and most of all secure, which is why a number of online gift registries like Thankyou suit the needs of brides and grooms to a tee.
An online wishing well works the same as the traditional wedding wishing well, however, since it is commonly created through a gift registry or wishing well website, guests give their cash gifts and contributions online via credit card or Paypal and the like. The contributions are then redeemed by the couple and transferred to their account and spend the cash on whatever they wish. Click here to continue reading
