Wedding wishing wells have well and truly taken over the gift giving culture of weddings in Australia. Where there once was a tradition of giving gifts designed to help newlyweds start a new home together, the time of guests choosing gifts or browsing from a registry is over. Nowadays, couples tend to marry older, after already having lived together for some time, and as such, there is usually no need for a fancy toaster or set of champagne flutes. A wedding wishing well box is a great way to help cover costs for a wedding, the honeymoon, or to contribute to a deposit on a home.
Wishing wells are so versatile in that they can be made of mostly any material in any shape to suit any style of event. For example, if your wedding has more of a rustic countryside style, consider a wishing well made from an antique suitcase, rustic mailbox, or an actual wooden wishing well. If your special day is destined to be more elegant, consider a crystal treasure chest or glass mirror wishing well.

However, money is a gift that is traditionally given at so many different milestone celebrations, not just weddings.

Quality Acrylic Wishing Well Options
The acrylic wishing well has taken wedding trends by storm. Whether it’s transparent, rose gold, or has a mirror finish, the acrylic wishing well box has been a mainstay of Australian wedding culture for the past few years. Minimalist and modern in design, at Koch & Co, we are proud to offer high quality acrylic wishing well boxes for sale. These wishing wells require no set up, come with a convenient slot for envelopes and cards, have a good amount of space for receiving and containing envelopes, and come with a latch that allows the recipient/s to lock the wishing well if they so choose. These acrylic cubes are also highly customisable. A popular option has been a clear wishing well box personalised with a laser engraved or vinyl decal graphic. As an added bonus, an acrylic wishing well box also works well as a memento box in which to store keepsakes from the big day.
Wooden Wishing Wells For A Rustic Wedding
If your day is going to be set in a more naturalistic and rustic setting, you might choose to go for a wooden wishing well wedding decor option. Wooden wishing wells can take many shapes, with popular options including an actual wooden wishing well (with a slot for envelopes instead of a bucket for water), or a wishing well wedding post box. If you have an engagement party or wedding coming up, it’s time to get organised, and shop for a wooden wishing well box and more shapes today. A rustic wedding wishing well tends to have more charm than some of the more modern and minimalistic options on the market. At Koch & Co, we stock a high quality white wooden wishing well that has proven to be a timeless classic for many years with our clientele.

- What is a wishing well at a wedding?
Wedding wishing wells are usually some variety of box that is designed to contain monetary gifts given by guests to newlyweds. A wishing well will usually occupy a quiet corner in the reception venue and can come in any number of forms. From wooden wishing wells to glossy acrylic cubes, the overall purpose of a wishing well is to create a safe and inviting space for monetary gifts to be left by guests.
- How does a wedding wishing well work?
A wishing well is a wedding tradition designed to cater to newlyweds who don’t need traditional wedding gifts such as homewares, and would instead prefer monetary gifts. It is customary for guests to put cash and a greeting card in an envelope, and slot it into the wishing well at some time during the reception. Though wedding wishing wells can be obscure in that they don’t take up much space, and can take the shape of anything from a suitcase to a post box. For easier access, they will often be marked by a small sign.
- How to word a wishing well on the wedding invitation?
When a couple sends a wedding invitation, it is customary to take this opportunity to also include a small, separate message that announces that there will be a wishing well box on the day. This message works as a diplomatic effort to request that instead of physical gifts, wedding guests bring a monetary gift. This message often takes the form of a short poem, and often includes something about the intended use for any monetary gifts, for example, a honeymoon. This provides a more gentle way of requesting money without offending, and can be funny or sweet in tone. When composing a wishing well announcement, take care to include an acknowledgement that monetary gifts are not mandatory, so as to not exclude those for whom a cash gift may be more than they can afford.
