Today I am thrilled to welcome Buy our Honeymoon to chat a little about Money, and the value of Wedding Gifts.
I hand over to Andrew and Shelley to share their thoughts…
“Last week, a post on the discussion board Mumsnet talked about how a guest at a wedding had later been contacted by the couple, asking for an adjustment to the value of her £100 gift.”
“The discussion reached the National Press and caused much much debate.”
“But we are not here to join in with an Internet pile-on.”
“The thing is, though, wedding gifts are all about helping a couple start their new life together.”
“They are not an obligation to fulfil, or a measure of your means.”
“They are a token of love and celebration from the people that matter to you the most.”
“But for many couples, starting a new life together doesn’t mean starting a new home together.”
“Cookware and cushions are already part of life.”
“For lots of couples, experiences are more valuable than stuff.”
“With the wedding gift list service from buy-our-honeymoon.com, you get help towards your honeymoon expenses, while your guests get to choose a gift that can mean something to them.”
“A honeymoon gift list lets you separate the gift from the amount thats spent on it.”
“It’s not a cash gift of £100, its a trek to Machu Picchu, or a horseback ride on a South African beach.”
“And one of the very best things about a honeymoon gift list is that it provides scope for fantastic wedding gifts that don’t have to be expensive.”
“A picnic lunch in Paris? A tuk-tuk ride in Thailand? Some blackjack chips in Vegas? Dessert? Sunscreen?”
“Often the most romantic, memorable gifts aren’t the ones that cost the most money.”
“The value of wedding gifts isn’t in the amount that’s spent on them.”
“We set up buy-our-honeymoon.com to use for our own wedding back in 2005.”
“Thanks to our wonderful guests we started our own journey in marriage in complete bliss — not just because of the luxuries we might not have been able to afford otherwise, but because our friends and family became a wonderful part of our honeymoon, as we thought of those we loved while we experienced the fantastic moments they had given us.”
Thank you to Andrew for sharing his amazing words.
If there is something I have learned most in the last 2 years is that moments matter.
Life goes by so fast and sometimes we take those moments and people for granted.
To be able to create a time period in your life where your special people have given you moments that you will remember for the rest of your life, not only because they were wonderful but because they were given in love is priceless.
