Creating a wedding gift list is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable aspects of wedding planning. It’s something you and your partner can enjoy doing together, and something that will transport you to thinking of all the adventures you will have as a married couple in the future.
What many couples don’t realise is how spoiling and exciting the experience of creating a wedding gift list is. It is essentially a tailored personal shopping experience, for both you and your guests!
You may not know where to begin with creating or setting up a wedding list, which is where we step in. With over 25 years of experience, we have extensive product knowledge and interiors experience which allows us to help you make informed decisions about every item you add to your wedding gift list. We get to know you as a couple, taking note of your taste, style and interests so that we can offer you bespoke and tailored advice on wedding presents that we know you will love, and use, for a lifetime.
We are on hand to help you as much or as little as you need. Whether you are starting from scratch, or looking to upgrade specific items, we can help you build your list with ease and enjoyment. We will always offer the same personal experience to your guests when they come to choose a present from your wedding gift list. By getting to know you well, we can use this to help guide your guests towards a wedding present that they will love to give, and you will love to receive.
The foundation of our company is centered around treating each of our couples individually, and getting to know your tastes and your needs for your gift list.
Here is how our bespoke wedding gift list service has been likened to a luxury personal shopping experience for our couples:
Every registered couple with The Wedding Present Company is assigned their very own dedicated Wedding List Advisor. From the beginning to the end of your gift list journey, your Wedding List Advisor will be on hand to offer expert advice and support that is 100% tailored to you as a couple.
“We absolutely loved meeting Tors in the London showroom and hearing all of her fantastic advice on how to create a lovely home. In fact we loved it so much we went back a second time to meet her and finalise our list.”

We work with over 400 amazing brands, from the big name must haves like The White Company and Oka, to small bespoke artisans that you may not have come across before.
However, if there’s something that you are looking for but can’t find it, your Wedding List Advisor is on hand to help you source it. Whether that is a mirror that will fit on a very specific wall or a certain look for your dinner plates, with our extensive product knowledge and huge list of brands we take the hard job out of scrolling the internet for the perfect item and simply send you suggestions, which we can then add to your gift list on your behalf.
We also work with an antiques company who can source you one of a kind items that you won’t find anywhere else. Simply let us know what you are looking for and we can put you in touch with our dedicated antiques partner who will source present ideas personally for you - a unique feature of a wedding list with The Wedding Present Company.
We know that your wedding gift list needs to perfectly cater for all your guests and a variety of budgets. We also know that it can be a little overwhelming to know if you have the right amount of wedding presents on your wedding gift list or not. That’s where the expertise of your Wedding List Advisor comes in.
It’s our bread and butter to help couples build a wedding gift list that is suited to their guest list. Whether that’s helping to understand if you need to add more to your list, or perhaps take a little off, or helping you to ensure you have presents and price-points that cover all budgets.
We can also help you to make sure you have everything you need on your wedding list. Our handy check-list has been created with years of experience and teamed with the expertise of our Wedding List Advisors, you can’t go wrong!
“The personal and flexible service really shines through at The Wedding Present Company. Nothing is too much trouble and they always go above and beyond to make life as easy as possible for their couples. The delivery is so easy to organise – I’ve lost count as to how many deliveries we’ve had."

Want some honest advice on whether presents will fit your colour scheme? Not sure where to start with your wedding list? Feeling totally overwhelmed at the thought of it all? You’re not the first! Many of our couples are concerned that they want their wedding presents to fit in with their home and existing style and colour palette.
All of our Wedding List Advisors have a vested interest and background in interiors and can offer honest and impartial advice on putting together a wedding list to suit your needs.
Some couples have shared fabric or wallpaper samples with us in appointments, allowing our Advisors to suggest ideas for wedding presents such as lamps and cushions that will work with their colour scheme.
Other couples have shared images of their sitting room or bedroom and asked if we think a present will work in the space. We have helped thousands of couples to build a wedding list that is timeless but perfectly in sync with you as a couple, meaning you will love your wedding presents just as much in 20 years time as you do now.
“We really loved visiting the showroom and seeing everything laid out – especially the kitchen area. It helped us to imagine how the items would look in our own home, which really helped us to get a feel for sizing and quantity required. The advice and support from our wedding list advisor was also so helpful throughout the process.”
Bride and Groom, Lizzie and Ian
Our London Showroom has often been cited as the highlight of our couples wedding planning journey. In the heart of Chelsea, it’s a cosy double storey space arranged like the rooms in a house. With thousands of presents to see, touch and feel in person, a private appointment with your Wedding List Advisor is a brilliant way to start your wedding gift list journey.
However, we know that not everyone can make it into London for an appointment, which is why our service is also available virtually. We can still help you create your wedding gift list together with all of our support and expertise, even if you never step foot in our Showroom!
For those that can’t make it into our showroom, a Virtual Appointment is a brilliant alternative. Ahead of your appointment, we will send you a short questionnaire to fill out, which will help us understand your style and what you are looking to add to your wedding list. We will then send you a bespoke moodboard with clickable links to whet your appetite ahead of a video call on Zoom, where we can explain how our service works, get to know you and also show you other suggestions for your wedding gift list. You will still have your very own Wedding List Advisor, who will support you every step of the via email or the phone.
“We truly loved our appointment in the showroom, it was great to be able to see and feel lots of different items and explore how they are all laid out in different rooms.”
Bride and Groom, Clare and Henry
