Money poems: Best ways to ask for contributions to your honeymoon

Are you feeling anxious about the fact that you've already got three toasters and you'd really rather choose bedsheets yourself but you can't think of anything else you NEED for the house. It's become completely acceptable to ask wedding guests for a financial contribution instead of a physical wedding present over the last few years, but let's be honest, it's not exactly easy to ask people for money. And that's where we come in. Soften your request with one of these money poems and enclose in your invitation to let people know where you stand. Alternatively, if poems aren't your thing, why not tastefully tell guests: "Your presence at our wedding is present enough, but if you want to gift us something, a contribution to our honeymoon would be much appreciated."
