Why Should you Have a Gift List?
Your wedding guests will want to buy you a wedding present to celebrate your marriage. Creating a gift list gives your guests an easy and flexible way to choose wedding presents they know you will love and also need. Even if you already have the basics for your life together, a gift list will enable you to build or upgrade your collection of homewares that you will love, and use, for a lifetime. A gift list also avoids the risk of you ending up with multiples of the same present, or things you simply don’t want.
When Should you Set Up a Gift List?
We would recommend having your gift list ready for when you send out your invitations, (usually about eight to ten weeks before your wedding). Depending on how long you would like to take creating your list, we’d recommend coming to visit our showroom four to six months before your wedding. However, we are completely flexible and we can help you build your list as quickly or slowly as you need. You can add presents to your list right up until your wedding day.
How to Set Up a Gift List?
You can set up your gift list online or in our London Showroom. Here you'll meet your dedicated Wedding List Advisor who will make recommendations for your gift list that are tailored to your tastes and needs. They will curate a selection of your favourite brands to get you started, and introduce you to lesser-known designers we know you’ll love. You'll be able to see presents in person and start adding presents to your wedding list right away.
What To Do If You Can't Visit Our Showroom
If you can’t make it to our showroom, don’t worry. We offer Virtual Appointments that are just as tailored and bespoke. You’ll still receive the same reassuringly personal service from your Wedding List Advisor. Fill in a short questionnaire and we will send you a bespoke mood board ahead of your appointment. During your appointment, your advisor will have a selection of specially chosen present ideas to share with you, and together you can build your wedding list.
How Much Does Creating a Gift List Cost?
Our service always has, and always will be free of charge. We don’t charge any handling fees for cash funds, and showroom appointments and our dedicated service is all complimentary. The only possible charge you may incur is a small delivery fee if the value of presents bought from your list is under £2000.
“The personal touches all the way through are so wonderful. Everyone at The Wedding Present Company is so welcoming and bubbly, you feel like you are talking and meeting with friends.”
“We truly loved our appointment in the showroom, it was great to be able to see and feel lots of different items and explore how they are all laid out in different rooms.”
“We absolutely loved meeting Tors in the London showroom and hearing all of her fantastic advice on how to create a lovely home. In fact we loved it so much we went back a second time to meet her and finalise our list.”
“The personal and flexible service really shines through at The Wedding Present Company. Nothing is too much trouble and they always go above and beyond to make life as easy as possible for their couples. The delivery is so easy to organise – I’ve lost count as to how many deliveries we’ve had. "
“We really loved visiting the showroom and seeing everything laid out – especially the kitchen area. It helped us to imagine how the items would look in our own home, which really helped us to get a feel for sizing and quantity required. The advice and support from our wedding list advisor was also so helpful throughout the process.”
