Advice and ideas to help you with your wedding gift list

Wedding Ideas Magazine – gift list advice

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Your wedding is one of the most importants days in your life – hopefully something you will only do once, therefore you want to get it right! Once the venue, transport and dress are decided on, you can turn your attention to the other things – flowers, invitations, photographers (video or not??), arghhh!!! It could be a nightmare, but how very exciting planning the most wonderful day.

E-weddinglist believe in providing a listing service to be a tool useful to you, and not something you have to work around. We pride ourselves in that we offer a totally flexible listing service, that is not linked to any particular store, giving you and your guests flexibility to shop from wherever they choose. The list can also be used to post blog updates for your guests, perhaps information for the big day, or add links to store websites who are offering discounts on items on your gift list.

How about adding a link to a weather report, closer to the big day? – OK I know its a lottery with UK weather, but it might just nudge your guest into thinking of popping a brolley in the boot of the car – NOT that it will rain on any of our brides wedding days. Moreso, if it is a continental wedding, it would be really useful to your guests. I remember travelling to Eurodisney, thinking it would be warmer than in the UK, on account of it being further south – WRONG! Something about the atlantic slip stream – anyway, it was freezing! Sometimes its best to think of everything for your guests.

Wedding ideas magazine run regular features on planning your big day, a useful online tool to click onto when you have five minutes. Click the link above and have a look, eweddinglist are featured this month, and feature a discount eweddinglist.

Plenty of choice on your Wedding Gift List

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

Everyday there is more news about the credit crunch and its effect on us all. The team at e-weddinglist do not wish to dwell on the subject but we keep it in mind when considering ideas and help for preparing your wedding gift list.

Most importantly, there are weddings to be had out there and no matter what’s happening in the world, it is the most important day in your life – our aim is to give help and advice for you to get to that day with the minimum stress!!

A colleague was telling us the other day about their cousin who is getting married later in the year. They have created their wedding gift list and have put everything on including the kitchen sink (literally!!).

Another wedding gift list idea sprang to mind….

Don’t forget to include the small inexpensive items on your list!

It may be a young niece of nephew may want to buy you something, but are restricted by pocket money, an older relative who are restricted by their pension or someone affected by the credit crunch.

Most department stores kitchen utensils ranges are singularly as well as in a set, so you could add each item to your wedding gift list individually, (sometimes better, as there is always a utensil in the set, that you are never going to use!!). Don’t forget to give full detail if there is a particular range you would like to collect, using links where appropriate, or detailing what finish or colour you hope to collect (stainless steel in the kitchen, for example).

So when creating your wedding gift list, remember the small items – loads of fun could be had by someone wrapping up a potato masher!!

Good luck and happy listing!
