    Your Guide to Setting Up a Wedding Gift List   

    While wedding gift lists are a common and expected part of the big day, many couples still feel a little uneasy as to whether or not they should have one. It can feel a little rude to ask for specific things and then there’s the worry over whether you’re asking too much. However, did you know that most guests would prefer to have a little guidance when it comes to what to buy the happy couple?

    Setting up a wedding gift list doesn’t have to be stressful. With so many options available to couple’s these days, it can be an exciting part of the wedding planning process. If you’re struggling to compile a list, here you’ll discover some great tips that can help.

    Your Guide to Setting Up a Wedding Gift List

    What should you ask for?

    Traditionally, the wedding gift list was compiled to include gifts for the couple’s new home. However, these days most couples have already lived together long before they decided to tie the knot. Therefore, they no longer need essential household appliances. This has led to a shift in the types of gifts couple’s do request.

    Your list should be unique to your own needs and preferences. Some couples choose to stick to traditional household items, while others ask for donations to put towards their honeymoon.

    If you’re struggling for ideas, why not check out your favourite stores and see whether they offer a wedding gift list service? Or compile an independent list to include items from several of your favourite stores, as that way you know you’re going to love and want the gifts you receive.

    Great wedding gift list tips

    Figuring out the type of gifts you want to include in your gift list is just the first hurdle. Other things you’re going to need to consider include:

    • How many gifts to include
    • The price of the gifts
    • How to actually ask for the gifts

    In terms of how many gifts to place on the list, it largely depends upon how many guests are coming. Consider whether some of the guests are coming as a couple or family. For example, you could be having 100 guests but when you split them down into couples and families, you’re going to be looking at around 60-70 gifts. As a general rule, it’s better to have a lot more gifts on the list than you need. That way, your guests have plenty to choose from.

    The price range of the gifts should also vary, ensuring there’s something to suit all budgets. When it comes to asking guests to choose from the wedding gift list, do it as politely as possible wording it along the lines of “Having you attend our special day is the best gift we could receive. However, if you wish to buy us something you can find our wedding gift list here”.
