Wedding Gift Lists


If you are planning to register your wedding gift lists be sure to include details on either your invite or an additional information card which you send out at the same time as the invitations.

Unsure whether you want a gift list? Have you considered asking for a contribution towards your honeymoon? There are numerous websites available where guests can buy online gifts for you. Such as a romantic dinner for two at your honeymoon destination or a special day trip etc.


Choosing how to word your requests for wedding gifts can be tricky. Most guests will want to buy you a gift if they attend your wedding and would probably appreciate some guidance from you about what you would like to receive. This is especially true if you already share a house with your partner, perhaps have children already. You are not likely to want or need some of the more traditional wedding gifts, toasters for example!

That's where companies like WedandWish.com come in (link will open in a new window). They are a specialist gift registry company who make it easy for you to get the things you really want for your big day. All you need to do is create an account (it's free), decide what your dream gifts would be, whether that's experiences for you to share on your honeymoon, upgrades for your flights, champagne to share on a romantic evening while your away etc.

The options are limitless, just add whatever you imagine to your account/gift list and then share that list with friends. This information can of course be added to your invitation but also why not share it on your social media pages or your own wedding website if you've created one.

Once your guests have bought the items on your list, by making a payment via Paypal, the funds are instantly transferred to you. I can't think of an easier way of setting up Wedding Gift Lists, can you?

Contact me if you have any questions about Wedding Gift Lists and I'll see if I can help. Alternatively click on the FAQ section of WedandWish.com website. The following is a testimonial from one of the happy customers who used WedandWish.com for their wedding gift lists.


Maria Alexandra & Luis Monroy
Bogotá, (Colombia)

"When we started looking for gift registries we knew that we wanted an option where gifts could be converted into cash, so that later we would have more time available to choose and buy what we really wanted. Asking for cash gifts is really complicated, and Wed&Wish looked discreet and fun, which is why we chose them.

We found out about Wed&Wish through a friend who used them for her wedding. We contacted them and found it really easy to use. The best thing was their customer service.

Managing our funds was really easy, too. Everything was transparent and worked perfectly as advertised. PayPal is also a very easy and secure platform to use."

Wording for Wedding Gift Lists

If you've decided the easiest option is to request Gift vouchers or even money, now you need to consider how to word your invitation. I've previously used these examples, all of which can be customised to suit your situation regarding wedding gift lists.




So what do you get
for the bride and groom
whose house needs things
in every room?

When shopping for a present
please don’t be rash
as there is always the option
to just give cash.

We hope you don’t find
our request to be funny
but we’d really appreciate
a gift of money.

Our love and commitment
has found the way,
We have made it to this,
our special day.

To save you shopping,
sit back and rest,
A gift of your presence
is all we request.

Now that we have
saved you all the fuss,
We look forward to you celebrating
our special day with us.

We haven’t got a wedding list,
The reasons we’ll explain.
It’s to save you all the hassle
As shopping is a pain.

We thought we’d ask you all
For something else instead,
A small contribution towards
A holiday in the Med.

So if you’d like to contribute
Towards our honeymoon
We offer you our heartfelt “Thanks!”
With love, the Bride & Groom

The date has been set,
twenty seventh of September
Our wedding in Bali,
will be a day to remember
Now all you have to do,
is decide what to wear
Then polish your shoes,
and comb your hair.

We’ve been together years,
and already have a home
There aren’t too many items,
that we don’t already own
So don’t worry about a gift,
your presence will truly do
Just to have you at our wedding,
will be a dream come true.

But if you still wish to give,
and are that way inclined
A donation to our wishing well,
wouldn't be declined
While enjoying our honeymoon,
we’ll feel brand new
And we can look back and say,
it’s all thanks to you!
