Cedar Wishing WellCEDAR Wishing Well 45 /w gift lid If you are having a garden wedding then a cedar wishing well would make a great addition to the reception as it is heavy enough not to blow away, and will make a great addition to the garden when the day is over.

Many people will give the gift of money in the form of gift certificates, checks, or cash and they will need a safe place to put these gifts, so by providing an obvious place on the wedding table at the entrance to the reception will answer the question as to where to place it. 

So if you are trying to figure out how to make a wishing well for the wedding reception to receive these money gifts then just go by the theme of the wedding and some of the things the happy couple are saving for and get creative.

Take into account the size of the wedding too, and make sure you assign someone to watch over the wedding wishing well, as we don’t like to think of any theft problems on your special day, but it can happen especially if it is near a doorway. 

Create a large enough well that it can take quite a few envelopes without stuffing it.  Make a note to the effect that this wishing well is for “envelope sized gifts” so that you are not going to be worried about small envelopes getting lost amongst larger gifts.

So how do you make a wishing well for that wedding table?  Think outside the box and go for a container that matches the theme!
