HOW DOES WLC DIFFER TO DAVID JONES & MYER?

Despite recent press announcements by David Jones and Myer, guests can not purchase gifts online and must go instore to purchase from their registry - how antiquated!

Wedding List Co gives your guests the option of seeing an image plus description of the gift and buying it online. For the older couples who want that extra special service, they can purchase a gift instore. Your guests have the choice.

No doubt you have spent a great deal of planning to ensure your big day runs smoothly and it should be the same for your registry. Wedding List Co provides the service you need for your registry, from your personalised consultation, to your account manager or for those online, an easy to use system for managing your registry. Just call us and compare our service to the department stores as you will be delighted by the benefits.

ARE YOU THINKING OF ASKING FOR CASH INSTEAD OF GIFTS?

Wedding List Co recently undertook a survey of over 1000 guests to ask their thoughts on being asked for cash in lieu of a gift. The overwhelming response was that 87% of guests preferred to give a gift rather than cash and still take a gift of their choice anyway. However we recognise that the reality today is many couples prefer money towards their honeymoon or home deposit more than a household full of homewares, so we added the Contribution Registry which is our version of a Wishing Well. Dropping cash into a well at your wedding just seems so…naff! Guests can contribute any amount to the chosen ‘cash’ fund that you receive in full afterwards.

However when opting for this we strongly recommend mixing it with gifts to offer guests the choice. Remember – the registry is as much about your guests as it is about you, so make it as easy and appealing as possible by giving them the choice. Those happy to contribute money will do, and the rest (normally over 70%) will still be able to buy you a gift of your choice – that you will use and love.

Oh and guests who buy gifts on average spend double those who contribute cash…so its in your best interest to have a good selection of gifts on there!

WHAT GIFTS CAN WE CHOOSE FROM?

We have well over 8,000 options to choose from: Homewares (camping gear to luxe throws to toasters), Artwork, Coco Republic Furniture, Wine, Experiences, Honeymoon Registry and Cash. The list is endless, extensive, and gives you the widest choice of gifts in Australia. We operate just like the department stores in that we actually stock and sell all the gifts we offer and will deliver them to you after the wedding.

HOW DOES WLC DIFFER FROM ONLINE REGISTRIES?

Online only registries are limiting for many guests who would prefer to visit a store and see the gift before purchasing. This is why a registry with national stores and a website like Wedding List Co is a more popular choice – it suits you, and your guests.

Be careful of ‘faux’ online registries where you set up dummy gifts and receive money instead. Guests are not fooled and many are horrified when they find out afterwards that you were not in fact delivered the dinnerware they bought but instead that you received cash and used it to pay off wedding debts. Misleading your closest friends and family invited to your wedding is not the best way to start married life.

WE THOUGHT YOUR SERVICE WAS GREAT? WHAT IF WE REFER OUR FRIENDS?

The gifts don’t just end with your wedding. Recommend friends who are getting married and receive a $75 gift voucher to spend on more gorgeous goodies. Recommend a 2nd couple and receive $100, a 3rd and receive $150, and so on...
