Using Wedding Gift Lists as a Source of Information

When attending a wedding and buying a present for such, we often rely on gift lists or gift registries to get a feel for what the bride and groom want. But, a gift registry will actually tell you a lot more.

For one, by seeing gifts outlined in a list/registry you have the ability to understand what the bride and groom are looking for and more importantly get them something that they would want and have maybe never heard of. For example, if you notice the bride and groom have a lot of kitchen items on their list, and you know they love to BBQ, think about getting them an outdoor BBQ tool set.

Secondly, seeing a wedding gift list allows you to take the list and outdo it. Many times brides and grooms are conservative with what they choose to put on a gift list and that means you have the ability to go above and beyond what they are asking for. If it’s a close friend or family members then it’s worth putting in the extra effort to find a unique gift or spending a little more to get something special. After all, it’s the most important day of the bride and groom’s life.

Why Do Wedding Gifts Mean So Much?

Wedding gifts are given because they are a token of appreciation and a gesture of one’s best wishes to the newly weds. Gift giving in itself is a practical way to show appreciation for the bride and groom.  Also, remember that “a wedding shower” is a celebration to shower the bride and groom with all the items on their gift registry.

A wedding gift should not be thought of like a payment for attending a wedding or compensation to all the expenses that the bride and groom spent in the wedding and reception.  Rather, it’s an expression of regard for the couple. Therefore, if you can’t purchase a wedding gift on a bridal registry, you might want to get creative and provide a gift within your means.

You might want to explore what the couple’s common interests are.  For example, if the bride and groom are art enthusiasts, perhaps a nice art piece or a tour in a famous museum.  The couple could indulge from a hobby and not just a dining set or kitchen utensils.  Wedding gifts are significant to the newly weds and can be very memorable too.

Guests might want to consider the ethnic background or certain traditions of the bride and the groom. This idea may help the shopper pick a gift that is more meaningful than others.   In Japan, for example, it is traditional for wedding guests to provide a monetary gift in a stylized or fancy envelope. In many European countries, gift giving to the newlywed has means prosperity and brings certain luck.

No doubt that newlyweds look forward to receiving presents.  Whatever you gift to the to-be-weds, as long as it’s heartfelt and accompanied by a personally penned card of special, sweet wishes to the couple you can’t go wrong. Simply providing a card may satisfy the demands of etiquette. However, when you purchase a wedding gift from the registry, you need to look at the items that you find practical or aesthetic to the couples needs.  When you give a wedding present, giving a card that includes a special note or poem about how dear the couple is to your heart makes it even important.


Personalized Wedding Gifts – Making a Memorable Statement

A wedding is one of the absolute most important events in a person’s life, and often times couples spend well over $50,000 to entertain friends and family during the wedding and at the after party. With all of this money spent, the reality is that the day, and how memorable it is, comes down to the people who attend and the memories contained within the event, not the cost. For this reason, I feel that giving a small, unique, personalized wedding gift is the best way to make a statement and show thought. The bride and groom will surely appreciate it: Trust me.

Why give a personalized wedding gift? The reason for selecting and giving a personalized wedding gift is to show extra thought and go above and beyond price; remember it’s the thought that counts. Additionally, personalizing a gift marks the event for which it was given in time. For example, if a couple gets married in Malibu, California on the beach, giving them an engraved gift with the date and the location, then a small amount of text saying congratulations, is something they can keep for 10, 20, 30 years or more. And, the best part is, it will never be forgotten and it’s an excellent conversation piece.

Another important element to personalized wedding gifts is their uniqueness — giving something that nobody else will have. Creating a gift specifically with the recipient in mind is like tailoring a suit, or buying a custom dress shirt. The gift is selected for the bride/groom and one can rest assured that no one at the wedding will gift the same present. It may not sound important, but it really is.

Lastly, to ensure you are making a memorable statement, plan the point at which you will deliver the gift. Don’t just slap it on a table and hope the bride/groom find it, take some time to actually give the gift and say congrats on a personal level. Though, keep in mind that most people don’t want to carry around gifts at a wedding, especially the bride or groom, so present the gift at an appropriate time.
