Wedding Wishes!

Sending out wedding invitations is a time of excitement and possibility! It’s a shame traditional registries don’t offer the same, with many people already in possession of toasters and not wanting to simply ask people for cash. The Gift Register provides a modern alternative, offering you gift suggestions from all over the world, in as many categories as you and your fiancé can dream up.

This can be quite handy since more and more couples are choosing to live together before they wed. Traditional offerings like kettles and wine glasses are no longer the gift de jour. Gone are the good old days when wedding presents were sacred. When Grandma served Christmas dinner on a platter, proudly proclaiming each year that Jack and Shirl had given them that dish before sharing a look with Grandpa as they each remembered that glorious day so many years ago.

Today couples have so many options. You might choose to go with a Wishing Well – otherwise known as a nice way of saying just give us your money, or register for a travel fund, to ask guests for a contribution to your honeymoon. But how often are people today looking at their bank balance, and saying, ‘I’m so glad Tiffany and Nick gave us that $200 towards our trip! It really makes the first thirty minutes of our plane ride special!’

The Gift Register is the contemporary way of keeping weddings personal, offering plenty of scope for different and unique gifts that the special couple would like to receive on the occasion of their wedding – and remember for a lifetime.

Instead of just putting cash toward a travel fund, why not instead purchase an experience to be enjoyed along the way? Champagne for two at the top of the Eiffel Tower perhaps? And you will want to capture those memories on a compact Canon Powershot G16, rather than your iPhone camera.

The happy couple might be dying for some amazing cooking accessories that are not part of the standard kitchen – A fancy programmable slow cooker for those winter nights, or classic cookwear that lasts a lifetime, ideal for dinner parties with your guests long after the wedding day.

Home décor is always a winner, whether it’s stunning cushions in a range of colours, or some groovy table lamps to illuminate a new artwork for the home from an online art provider.

For the thrillseekers, a hot air balloon ride from Red Balloon Days is both romantic and adventurous, or pack your beach bag and head into the waves with some awesome towels.

The Gift Register lets you list anything from anywhere, not restricting you to just one store. So enjoy the journey … and have fun deciding what beautiful items you would like in your lives for years to come!
