From contributions towards your first home, to hot air balloon rides and honeymoons, here are 5 alternative wedding gift ideas to inspire you…
With most couples now living together before they tie the knot, traditional homeware gifts are no longer at the top of their wedding wish lists. So, forget toasters and kettles, Celine Lazorthes, CEO of leetchi.com, has put together 5 alternative wedding gift ideas that modern couples will love!
A contribution to the honeymoon
An unforgettable experience together
With platforms like Red Letter Days, you can register things like a dinner out, a night in a hotel, or exciting activities such as hot air balloon rides and watersports. Friends and family know they’re giving you a meaningful experience rather than something that’ll go unused in a kitchen cupboard.
A helping hand to secure your first home
Through platforms like Down Payment Dreams family and friends can make contributions that go towards your future.
A meaningful token
If you’re planning your wedding on a shoestring, you could keep it simple for everyone and stick to something you’re passionate about. Maybe you and your spouse-to-be are both music geeks looking to expand your record collection. Why not ask your guests to give you their favourite album as a meaningful token of their love and friendship?
The same logic can be applied to any of your shared hobbies: books, films… even wine!
Give something back
While all these things are nice, really the greatest gift of all is spending your special day with the people you love. You could simply ask guests that are feeling generous to donate to your charity of choice.
