Hello there! Which would you choose: a toaster or a trip in a hot air balloon? Perhaps you’d like a honeymoon in the Maldives, or a water feature?! Wedding gift lists can be a little overwhelming at times I think, don’t you? But most of us have them, and wedding planner Elizabeth Reed has been kind enough to share an introduction to some of the luxury wedding gift lists you might want to consider for your big day. I hope you find her advice useful!
Wedding trends change over the years and with this wedding gift lists have changed
Back in the Victorian days unmarried girls used to have a ‘bottom drawer’ or a ‘trousseau’ in their family home where they would start storing items they would need for when they left home to get married. Typical ‘bottom drawer’ items would include silverware, glassware, crockery and household linens.
These days couples live together before getting married so the tradition of having a ‘bottom drawer’ or a ‘trousseau’ has really been forgotten, therefore, by the time couples do get married they already have the every day essentials.
