When I think about registering for wedding gifts previously, I thought of going into a department store and picking out a bunch of crap we didn’t need or want – I thought that was my only option. But then a few of my engaged friends asked for experiences and it showed me a different way.
Are you like me where you already have all the physical things you need or want.? And if you have some spare money at the end of the month, you go try a hobby or book a flight somewhere? Well a company like Prezola let’s you register for experiences (as well as physical gifts). What an amazing idea!
So, you sign up and just start building your experiences list and it gives you a website to host it all on. You list your gifts, the value of each experience, chuck a few other things on the website such as venue details, your story and local hotels and taxi firm numbers and that’s a lot of the work done for you.
You pick a designated day to receive the gifts and if it’s an experience than can’t be physically purchased and sent (e.g. gift voucher to a place that doesn’t sell vouchers) then you just get your money in the bank account after the wedding. But it says ‘Anna and Andy got you Ice Skating in Times Square’ so you know who got you what experience.
When I first heard about this I assumed they took a few percent commisson on each item but no. It’s £59! That’s all. I was super shocked when I found out.
So for less than £60 you get:
Thousands of gorgeous gifts to choose from
Products from 300 top brands
Prezola gift vouchers – complete flexibility to decide later
Donations to any charity
Free wedding website with full gift list integration
Free delivery for you and your guests
10% discount on gifts you buy for yourself
Unlimited pre-delivery exchanges
Standard UK mainland delivery
Personal Shopper Service
Free gift list cards to give to your guests
Premium UK mainland delivery
Flexible commission-free honeymoon fund
Discreet cash gifts for any purpose
Custom gifts – any item from any retailer
This post isn’t paid for by Prezola or anything – I literally am this passionate about the idea. In fact there are other companies out there but Prezola is the one I’ve seen work in real life.
Below are a few experiences that are certainly on our list:
Archery Taster Class
Shakespears Globe Tour and Play Tickets
I’m torn between using Prezola or just asking for money! Whatever happens – I don’t feel it’s right to accept items I won’t be using again. What will you be doing with your wedding list? Leave a comment below and follow my wedding journey here.
