Bridal Registries

Bridal Registries

Keep in mind that you will probably have guests of all ages, with many different tastes and budgets. Selecting gifts across these ranges will allow all your guests to contribute in a way thats most comfortable for them.
Register with a store with convenient locations and a good return they can shop at to buy you a gift.

Don’t count on everyone using the gift registry service. This can be a great source of frustration as you can end up with duplications and things of no practical use. Ask the person accepting the RSVP (usually the host) to tactfully emphasise your wish for guests to use the registry.

You can have your wedding gifts delivered to your home (if you are already living together) or to a parent;s home to be opened the day after the wedding.

It’s also good idea to send a gift voucher for their wedding photography or video package as a surprise. Especially when they do not have videographer, it might be a good surprise for them to film their wedding all day.

As well as we provide wedding photography, we also provide videography, so please contact us anytime if you are looking for video (DVD) for your wedding.

A gift to the married couple helps them to get started in their life together and a gift from them to their guests acknowledges with gratitude their presence and assistance organising wedding.

A popular option for letting gusts know what gift you want is through a bridal registry. Set up a gift registry prior to the wedding invitations being sent out. Inquire at any department store or smaller specialised stores if they have gift registries. Search the internet for on-line registries service.

What a load

Get a set of bathroom scales and weigh everyone’s bag. It can be a lot of fun to find out who has the heaviest bag and why.

How about having a photo boost at the party? It’s not too expensive to hire a few hours, so all your guests can get their photos taken in the photo boost in such funny outfits?
Thoese photo boost has been very popular especially when there are a lot of kids at the reception party.

Wedding Gifts

It is traditional for the bride and the groom to present a gift to their mothers –

usually flowers – during the speeches.

This is in the spirit of “Thank You for being my mother”, rather  than a gift for anything
they may or may not have contributed to the wedding.

It’s also traditional for the bride and groom to exchange presents with each other on the day; the bridegroom also pays for the thank-you presents for the bridesmaids.

Often this is jewellery, but it could be any kind of memento of the wedding day.
You may also want to thank your best man ushers.

Often couples like to give them cuff-links to wear on the day or a beautiful photo frame.

At Sydney Wedding Photography by Katsu, we provide a beautiful photo frame any of packages that you choose.

So you can have your beautiful memories in your lounge or bed room as well as other presents that you might receive on your wedding day.

Gift list secrets

Gift list secrets

There is no law decreeing that a gift list must contain one vacuum cleaner, four bath towels and eight tumblers.

In fact, a gift list is simply a chance for guests to give you a “useful  something” for married life, and if you won’t find a set of napkins useful, then you might want to think about something else.

The gift vouchers from David Jones are always great gift, so you can purchase whatever you need after you come back from your honeymoon.

These days, a complete shed full of DIY tools Season Tickets seems to be popular.
How about A wine cellar, The honeymoon voucher or A bathroom / conservatory?

I always give my clients a nice photo frame with their photo from their wedding as a part of my packages. So they can have it in their bedroom or lounge room to be remembered how fantastic their wedding day was.

In general, people seems to take more photos since the smart phones has been invented but how often do we actually print out photos?

This is one of the reason why Sydney Wedding Photography by Katsu give photo prints to all my clients as well as high resolution images on the DVD.
