Arguably one of the hardest things about planning a wedding these days is the gift registry. Do you even have one? Do you hire a wishing well? Or do you walk around David Jones like a possessed person with a barcode zapper? We're here to help. If you're looking for something a little different, out of the box, or more personal, check out these options before making the call.
Less Stuff More Meaning
If an ethical, eco-focused wedding is more your thing, consider Less Stuff More Meaning. The aesthetically-pleasing, heart-warming site also offers an ethical gift registry. In working with various charities, couples are encouraged to contribute to something bigger than themselves while reducing the amount of stuff we accumulate. Get ready to change the world with your wedding!
The Wedding Nest
For those after a little guidance in their gift requests, The Wedding Nest is a dream. A beautifully edited collection of homewares, art, furniture and entertainment have been collated in the one place, ensuring no bad gifts. Ever. Each couple creates an online lookbook for guests, featuring the items on the list and personalised messages. With the bonus option to add Honeymoon and Wishing Well funds, it's guaranteed beauty and satisfaction.
The Hint Registry
Instead of awkwardly asking guests for cash or receiving ten of the same chopping boards, consider a personalised registry wish-list. Create your own landing page for guests to visit via The Hint Registry and fill it with the gifts you'd love to receive - maybe a contribution towards your honeymoon airfares, a hotel stay in the city or a classic tableware set. Build it to suit your needs and watch your inbox flood with loving messages from friends and family.
