In the ye old days, it was customary for wealthy brides to receive a trousseau on her wedding. This contained all the clothes that the lady will need for her married life.
Then as the years rolled on this turned into household items which the couple need to set up home.
However nowadays many of us already have all the things we need therefore what should you ask your guest to give?
Whether you are asking them to contribute to a specific element like the hotel or just a general pot of money this is a nice idea because it will give the guest a chance to contribute to a gift that will be enjoyed and provided many happy memories.
There is nothing like spreading your joy with other people so why not help others who are in need. In these current economic time, charities are the hardest hit due to the lack of funding from governments so they need private donations more then ever.
Deposit for Future Home
We all wish the happy couple the best for the future and what could be better then giving them a hand in getting their first house! With rising house prices (especially in the UK), it is getting harder and harder for first time buyer to build up the deposit that is necessary to secure a mortgage on a house so with the help of family and friends you could make their future a little bit easier.
This is the route I took and this caused a raised eyebrow from my mother in law since asking for money as a wedding gift is often considered vulgar. However, it is traditional in many eastern cultures for money to be presented as a wedding gifts and since I am Chinese this seemed perfectly natural to me. Now each culture has there own way of presenting the money to the couple, for the Chinese, it is presented in red envelope, just like the one above but it can also be included in the congratulation card as well.
Do you have any other ideas which might be an alternative to the traditional wedding list? If you do then let us know in the comments!
