Sometimes you need tips for planning wedding gift lists because there are lots of things to consider, so we’ve asked the team at House of Fraser to lend us some of their top planning tips!

Register for your gift list early

Guests will be keen to start browsing as soon as they have received their invitation, so make sure you get your gift list online as soon as possible. Also, print out and post copies for those who aren’t internet savvy.

Make decisions with your partner

Make sure you involve your partner in the decision-making process. Remember, the gifts are for both of you, so make things easier by listing the items you already have. This will make it clear for you and your partner to see where the gaps are and fill them in! To avoid arguments you could alternate choosing gifts, too.

Where possible, make sure your gift list is available online providing guests with a variety of methods, in which to secure their chosen gift i.e. online, in person, or by phone. An online purchase would be far simpler for those guests with a hectic lifestyle.

Remember to say thank you

You’d do it after Christmas, so you should do it after the big day, too! Thank you cards are a great way to show guests your appreciation.
