    Hi everyone,

    I have been racking my brain for hours trying to write a poem to ask our guests for money but I seriously SUCK!!
    It looks a lot easier than it is! I have seen a million poems online and on this forum which I love, but I'm trying to edit it to suit our situation. Most of the poems explain that the couple already have a house full of everything they need, but this is the opposite to us, we rent a studio apartment in Barcelona and don't own anything!!!

    We are asking our guests for money instead of gifts because we will be coming back to Spain to stay after the wedding so won't be able to transport everything. The same goes for vouchers, we have different shops over here.

    So I'm trying to write a poem which explains that although we would love household gifts, it's just not possible because of where we live. I want it to be light and funny too!

    I didn't want to resort to asking someone else to do this, but I am really tearing my hair out trying to make things rhyme! This is definitely not my strong point!! :)

    If anyone fancies giving it a wee go, I would be forever grateful!

    Thanks,

    Shannon

    I've had a go Shannon, don't know if it's any good for you though!

    We'd love for you to join us
    On our very special day
    To eat, drink and be merry
    And then dance the night away.

    We do not have a gift list
    And the reason we'll explain
    Is the problem of transporting gifts
    By air or sea to Spain.

    We just don't have the space
    To take presents back with us
    And if vouchers were your next thought
    The issue we have is thus

    We do not have a Debenhams
    John Lewis or M&S
    Unfortunately we cannot spend them
    So it's time to reassess

    Our only option is to ask for cash
    Which does seem rather lame
    But then we could go shopping
    And give you all the blame

    We'd buy nice things for our home
    To furnish every room
    And we'd remember our lovely guests
    Who have helped the bride and groom.

    Well done Lynne! When I was looking for our poem I saw the same 10 or so on nearly every site, so I cut bits out and added bits from another to make our own x

    Thanks girls. My grandad loved writing poetry so think a bit of that must have rubbed of on me lol as I can't believe I put that together in less than 20 mins. My brain just seemed to flow with the words x
