The wedding gift list cycle
20 Jun 2012
The cycle of your wedding gift list is traditionally around
6 months – from the time you start thinking about your wedding gift list all
the way through to your big day. Find below the stages of your wedding gift
list and when to start thinking about them:
Begin to think about
your gift list
Around 6 months before your big day it’s time to start thinking about your
wedding gift list. Rather than having to settle on gifts from just one store,
the hitched.co.uk gift list will allow you to add products from multiple stores
so you have a great freedom of choice.
Register your gift
You can register your gift list as early as you like on hitched.co.uk but
traditionally couples do this around 5 months before the big day, giving you
plenty of time to sit down as a couple and decide on what you would like on
your gift list.
Start adding products
Between 4-5 months before your wedding is a great time to start adding all
the products you would like. Doing this on the hitched.co.uk gift list couldn’t
be simpler – you select the category or store you would like to add products
from and then select to add to your gift list.
Notify your wedding
The majority of couples choose to notify their guests about their gift list
by placing a card in their wedding invitations. If you have a gift list with us
you will have the option to ‘Announce your Gift List’ where you can print out
cards to add to your invitations or instead send an email to all your guests.
Start recieving your
Unlike an old-style gift list, the hitched.co.uk gift list allows your
guests to buy direct from the retailer and have the product delivered to your address of choice.
Alternatively they can have the gift delivered to their own home and bring it
to your wedding day.
Send your thank you
Don’t forget to send out your thank-you notes within a month of your big
day. Thanking your guests for both their attendance and their wedding gift.
