Link to Department Store Lists within your e-weddinglist

Friday, December 26th, 2008

There are many wedding gift lists on offer, and many wedding forums have questions from bride and grooms to be asking which is the best to use. As you are aware many of the lists offered by department stores are free (so the items listed are purchased from them) . This is a good idea if you tend to shop at one store, but limits the customer buying power and ability to shop around for the best deal.

It may be that you decide that you would like your kitchenware from a John Lewis gift list, gift vouchers for B&Q and a long list of general gift items that can be purchased from any high street retailer.. all of these can be included on one gift list with the e-weddinglist.

This is where www.e-weddinglist.co.uk list comes into its own. You can have one wedding gift list, to circulate to your wedding guests, but can have a link to multiple store wedding lists, such as your department store wedding list! You can take advantage of any incentive the department store is offering to use their list, but have the flexibility to feature other stores or items that can be purchased anywhere too! The best of both worlds!

Using the gift list example above, I would suggest you list kitchenware as an item on your e-wedding list, with a note informing your guests that there is a department store gift list in your name, then provide a link to guide your guests to your store wedding list link. They can then view the list and make their purchase. It need not stop there – e-wedding is so versatile you could use any number of department store wedding lists and bring them together on one wedding gift list.

The secret is don’t fence yourself in. By keeping your list flexible, it benefits your guests by giving them greater buying power (they may live close to a factory shop) and benefits you as the recipient!

Happy listing!
