How To Choose Your Wedding Presents The Smart Way

How To Choose Your Wedding Presents The Smart Way

When it comes to creating a wedding gift list, one British company are seriously changing the game – making the time-consuming experience of creating a registry into a relaxing, bespoke service you'll actually enjoy.

The Wedding Present Co.– formally known as Wedding Presents Direct – has over 24 years’ experience helping couples build their perfect wedding lists, and is the only wedding list company dedicated to personal service – getting to know couples, and helping them choose presents that will last a lifetime.

So how does it work?

Firstly, book in to see The Wedding Present Co.’s King's Road showroom – it's free of charge to visit, and open seven days a week by private appointment only. It's a stress, rush and pressure-free environment where you can create your personal wedding list with the help of their expert team. The service is so special, you may actually find it ends up being your favourite part of the whole wedding planning experience.

The showroom is laid out like a mini-home, so you can walk through the rooms and visualise how each of their products could work for you. Or, you can simply relax on one of their sitting room sofas and leaf through their range of luxury brochures whilst your personal advisor adds anything that takes your fancy to your list. There are extra little touches too, like complimentary glasses of champagne, beer or freshly made Nespresso coffee.

What gifts do they offer?

There's truly something for everyone, and at a whole range of price points – think £4 glass photo frames up to £1,000 Indian-inspired rugs. You can browse gifts in different room categories, from bathrooms and studies to hallways and gardens, or from their 'inspiration' ranges – choose from the likes of 'Rustic Boho', 'City Pad' and 'Country Cottage' to make creating cohesive interiors simple.

The Wedding Present Co. has a whole host of unique and chic brands on offer, with many presents exclusively sold through them – so you won't see these designs anywhere else. They can also source or commission more personal ideas, such as a piece of antique silver or an original painting of your wedding venue. Plus, if you see something elsewhere they don't currently offer, the team are able to track down custom products and add them to your list.

The company ethos is all about finding wedding presents you can keep forever and eventually pass down to future generations, so expect a wide choice of both traditional and modern presents, alongside expert advice from advisors about how to pick items that will stand the test of time.

What about honeymoon funds?

They offer that too. You can add dedicated funds to your wedding list, allowing your guests to contribute towards anything from a honeymoon to art, wine and furniture. Any guest contributions towards these funds will be automatically transferred to you after your wedding.

Anything else to know?

This is truly a wedding gift list for the modern age. As soon as you register, you’ll be able to access your personal online account – allowing you to add and remove items, keep track of the presents your guests are buying and see what’s been delivered to their warehouse (which also offers nine free months of storage after the wedding). There’s no impersonal zappers, call centres or long waiting times to reply to emails either – the advisors are at couples' beck and call no matter what, with a major focus on customer service.

The Wedding Present Co. also offers a 10% lifetime discount after your wedding, in case you want to top up your collection, or replace any breakages. And if that wasn't enough, they make a charity donation on behalf of every couple – paying forward the generosity of your friends and family.
