Response: Hello Denise, Wishing wells are highly controversial and can offend more guests than those that will use it. It would be a major etiquette faux paux to mention the wishing well, or any other gifts, in your invitation, so you are at the mercy of those guests who happen to have money with them. Most couples find that they dont receive much money with a wishing well.
A better, and more socially acceptable, way to handle the issue is to not register. Then, guests will ask you or your parents what you need and you can say you would prefer money. Just dont put anything in writing in your invitation. If you do, you may end up with many cards with no money in them.
