10 reasons why you should *definitely* have a wedding gift list

Written by Katie Byrne

The team at Prezola reveal why 2016 couples should make their gift-list a point of priority


Some couples skip the wedding registry these days, but many of your friends and family find it the easiest, most helpful way to see you off on your married life together. It’s not at all restrictive or dull now either – there’s a thoroughly modern option that offers you tons of beautiful options and keeps everyone happy, and that’s Prezola. Ali Beaven, Prezola’s Cofounder and Creative Director shares her top ten reasons to have a gift list.

1. It’s what your guests expect

Don’t be shy – it’s a wedding tradition everyone is familiar with. You’re making things easier for your loved ones and they can peruse your list when it’s convenient for them.

2. It gives your friends and family a chance to get you something they can be sure you’ll love

By providing the list, and with over 30,000 products to choose from at Prezola (plus the option to add your own finds from elsewhere when you have a £35 Premier Plus account with us) it means that your guests can be absolutely sure you’re going to love their gift.

3. It gives you a chance to upgrade items you may have had since your student days!

This is the perfect opportunity to exchange worn, mismatched cutlery and crockery for quality items you’ll treasure.

4. It sets you up in your married life in comfort

It’s all your guests want: to know they’ve helped towards starting you off on the right foot, with their love and support and everything you need for a comfortable life together.

5. It gives you special future heirlooms

How special to have beautiful linen, china and glassware that you can one day pass on to the younger generation of your family, too.

6. It’s convenient and makes it easy for everyone

It’s so easy to put your list together at Prezola and we have a friendly team who can assist you, and your guests as well, should they need it.

7. It’s a joy to open everything at once after your honeymoon!

Your guests won’t have to carry big, bulky gifts to your wedding or reception – you can arrange a convenient time after your wedding for us to deliver all your gifts in one go.

8. It’s easy to keep track and say thank you for everything

You can pop into your Prezola account at any time to see how your list is doing and who has generously put their names to each item. Some of our brides use it as an opportunity to get cracking on their thank you cards pre-wedding!

9. It saves embarrassment and awkward moments

Gone are the days of awkward envelopes, not knowing if a cash gift is the done thing and duplicate presents. It’s a streamlined system to keep everyone happy! Older generations especially really appreciate the option of a traditional gift list.

10. It’s a wonderful reminder of your big day

Having items your friends and family have given you dotted all around your home together is very special indeed. Being surrounded by their generosity is a lovely reminder of your day and of the people closest to you.
