In the past, it may have been seen as rude for a couple to tell their guests what to buy them as a wedding gift, but these days, gift registries are commonplace.
One of the major trends we’ve seen popping up in recent years is the digital wedding registry, which provides couples with a modern and stress-free alternative to the traditional wishing well. If you’re not sure what this entails, here are five reasons why you should consider having a digital gift card registry.organise your gift card registry
1. No unwanted gifts
With a gift card registry, guests can donate financial gifts online, meaning you’ll be able to avoid unwanted wedding gifts like toasters and cutlery sets. Post-wedding, you’ll receive a Mastercard pre-loaded with funds you can spend on anything you like!
2. More secure than wishing wells
The digital aspect removes the worry of lost or stolen gifts or keeping track of gifts on your special day. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy your night and your guests needn’t stress about remembering to bring an envelope of cash or a present to your wedding because they will have already contributed to your digital wedding registry.
3. Convenient for modern couples
If the thought of transporting wedding gifts from your venue after a night of celebrating sounds like a lot of work — a headache even, then you’ll love the efficiency and convenience of a digital wedding registry. Guests can view your wedding details on your unique wedding page and donate a financial gift to toast your new marriage.
4. Freedom to choose your own gifts
Unlike a traditional wedding registry, you won’t have to undertake the painstaking task of pre-selecting wedding gifts for your guests to choose. This gives you more freedom post-wedding to take your time and choose gifts that you’ll actually love and use.
5. Spend your gift card anywhere in the world
Post-wedding, after your registry has closed, you’ll be sent an unactivated Mastercard in the mail, with your pre-selected design printed on top. This can be spent on anything your heart desires — and anywhere in the world, too!
