As winners of the Best Gift List Service 2019, your wedding gift list couldn’t be in safer hands than with The Wedding Shop!
By delighting couples with their personalised and award-winning service, they’ve built on their great reputation and are now the UKs largest independent gift list service. We were delighted to host Nicola, from their Edinburgh showroom, at our Business Brunch in April. She explained:
The Wedding Shop have been helping couples build their dream gift lists for over 28 years now, so we really are the experts at gifting. Today we have five beautiful showrooms, including Fulham, Selfridges Oxford Street, The Wedding Gallery, Edinburgh and Dublin. Each showroom has a team of knowledgeable Gift Gurus with a wealth of experience to help advise our couples on how to create a list that is unique and personal to them, while answering any questions they may have.
What to ask for as a wedding present is a more modern conundrum for couples. Previously, couples would be gifted items to build a home from scratch – often not living together prior to marrying. Now, times have moved on and many couples have already set up home, however, getting married is the perfect occasion for couples to treat themselves! It’s a time to replace the mismatched mugs or the blender you have had since university and choose something a little more luxurious. And who better to have on hand for this than the wonderful Gift Gurus at The Wedding Shop, who make the whole process easy and enjoyable.
Whether you choose to go to one of their showrooms or build your gift list entirely online or via their app (yes, they have a great app!) you will be assigned your own personal Gift Guru who will help you to build a list that will suit you both and your lifestyle. The Wedding Shop work with over 400 brands, so there is a huge amount of choice, but should you not find what you are looking for you can add products from any UK retailer and they will source it for you free of charge.
The Wedding Shop also like to offer flexibility to your list and as such you can swap the products on your list amongst their 400+ brands right up until the point that you confirm your gifts, after your wedding. They also offer 3 free deliveries in the UK and there are no hidden fees. If you’re absolutely sure you’ve got everything you need already for your marital home, then they also offer a wide range of gifts which include subscriptions, experiences, cases of wine and bubbles, minimoons, personalised honeymoons, cash funds and charity contributions.
There’s also a brilliant feature of group gifting. So, if there is an item you would love to have but feel guilty adding it to your list due to the price, you can make it a group gift to allow multiple guests to contribute however much they would like to put towards it.
It is probably fair to say that the bulk of the wedmin usually falls to just one of you in the partnership, which is why creating your wedding list can be a great way to get your other half stuck in! It’s something that you can do together as a couple and it’s also the only part of wedding planning that is totally free and so much fun… who doesn’t love a free shopping trip? The Wedding Shop have lots of starter guides and inspiration lists to give couples a helping hand and of course you will have your very own Gift Guru on hand, every step of the way.
The Wedding Shop app even includes a useful barcode scanner, so you can build your list while on the go.
So, if you’re looking for a way to feature a once in a lifetime sky diving trip alongside an Artisan KitchenAid coffee machine and Celine oak desk then look no further than The Wedding Shop.
