Etiquette - The Gift List

The Gift List
The tradition of giving wedding gifts to the newlyweds originates from a time when the couple would have spent their lives, prior to marriage, in their parental homes. Marriage was - and often still is - a time of setting up the new marital home from scratch. It was usual for friends or older relatives to contribute items of kitchenware, furniture or money to give the couple a helping hand.

Today, however, the reality is that very few couples start from scratch, often having lived independent of the parental home for some time prior to the marriage. The gift list was introduced to prevent duplication of the same gift. The couple compile their list of required items and then make that list available to anyone who intends to give a gift. This saves guests wasting money and time by giving a gift which is either unsuitable or is a duplication.

Wedding Tips - Gifts & Favours

Wedding Tips - Wedding Gifts & Favours

Most women love weddings. Maybe it's the variety of beautiful styles, themes, and ideas that we see uniquely showcased at each wedding. No two weddings are alike. A wedding can be grand and extravagant - or simple and elegant. Something that can be intriguing at weddings are the gifts and favours.

Wedding gifts and favours are a way for the bride and groom to express their appreciation and thanks to their honoured guests. It may surprise some modern brides to find out that long ago, the bride and groom were expected to provide gifts for their guests instead of the reverse. Today there are even wedding registries that tell the guest exactly what and how much to buy. If you'd like to strike a balance between the bygone days and the more modern, you can offer at least a small remembrance to your guests.

Couples are able to compose their own vows, assuming they meet the legal requirements. As each venue must renew their licence, it is worth checking that they still hold their licence before deciding on a venue.
