wedding gifts - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
For our wedding gifts we asked for only good wishes. Our guests wrote them on special cards we could fix into a memories book. Then over the coming year we wrote back to them one by one with a special wish for them. And, this universe being the wonderful place it is, those wishes always arrived in a moment when they needed it the most. It was the gift that kept on giving over the years and we treasured it more than any material thing could ever be treasured.
It was an ecological wedding, they only requested that each guest write a poem about love in the wedding-memories book, and that they let that be their heartfelt wishes be their everlasting gift.
The real wedding gift was the company of those that love us and support our loving bond, it was the memories and the feeling of total support that carried us through the day.
True gifts, as poet Kahlil Gibran said, are of the self and not of material possession. And so we wanted to keep our wedding pure of heart. Our guests were welcome to bring something homemade, create some art or bring kind words to speak, but they were truly welcome to come as they were and feel that their love was the only gift we asked for.
