Freedom of Choice
Your guests are can buy your gifts wherever they choose, as you are not getting a registry from a single department store. You ask for a "Mixer", the guest buys it from wherever they like!
Get the gifts you want
All you need to ask for is a set of plush bath towells, leaving your guests to find towells that they think you will like. You still get the surprise of receiving a hand-picked gift from your guest.
So easy to use
WhisperGifts really isn't hard to use. Even your old aunt will be able to easily pick a gift from your registry. A PDF of your registry can be printed and shared with non-computer-using family members, if needed.
As your wedding gets closer, we politely remind your guests what they have chosen for you. If they want us to, that is: buyers can opt-out of these e-mails easily and avoid the bother.
Fair prices for everybody
Because your guests can shop around, they can get the best deal. They can buy from any department store, online, or through personal connections. No more store lock-in with over-priced wedding gifts!
It's a secret, for a while
Before your wedding, you won't be able to see who has picked what gifts. It will be a complete surprise! Afterwards though, we give you a list of guests and their gifts to help you write your thank-you cards.
How does WhisperGifts work?
Setting up a WhisperGifts registry is really quite simple, and anybody can do it.
1. Create Your Registry
The easiest part of planning your wedding. Once you're engaged (or earlier, if you're keen!) you can sign up for a free bridal gift registry. Tell us a few basic details about your wedding so we can customise your new registry, and you're ready to start adding items.
Know what you want? Great! Just enter the details and you're good to go. Not so sure? Let us help you out with some hand-picked collections of gifts to suit most purposes including a new apartment, settled family, and chef's kitchen.
- Pick gifts from any retailer, online or offline
- Personalise your registry with images, page content, custom design, and more
- Group your items into categories, include prices and priorities, and get multiples of some gifts
2. Share Your Registry
Your new WhisperGifts Gift Registry is no good if nobody uses it! From your management screen you can easily tell your friends on Facebook and Twitter, and you can e-mail others your registry details.
We can also provide you with nifty little cards to send with your wedding invites that politely ask your guests to consider your WhisperGifts registry when purchasing a gift for you.
- Print cards to go out with your invites
- Share via email, with a personalised message
- Post a tweet
- Share via Facebook with selected friends
3. Guests Choose Gifts
Your guests can easily browse the gifts you've listed and select one or more to purchase. Once they have selected their gifts, it's up to them to head to the store of their choice (or even online if they prefer) and purchase a matching item, wrap it, and bring it to your wedding.
Why don't we sell gifts directly? Because part of the charm of wedding gifts is the surprise element. You typically want to guide the guest's selection, but leave some of the choice up to them. It's part of what makes their gift special.
- Guests can RSVP online
- Guests shop wherever they like!
- Guests save money by shopping around and getting discounts
- No middleman - pay stores directly
4. Thank Your Guests
Congratulations! You're happily married and the wedding day went off without a problem. Well, Uncle John got a little embarrassing but overall it was beautiful.
Your honeymoon is over and the weather was perfect. When you got home you had some close friends over to help unwrap all of your marvellous gifts. Look at that, you have everything you wanted with no double-ups!
The polite thing to do now is thank your guests for their wise choice and good taste. WhisperGifts makes that easy by automatically e-mailing you a list of who purchased what, a day after your wedding. Just write a note to each person and tick them off the list when you're done.
- We give you a guest + gift list
- Tick people off when you're done
- Time to relax and enjoy your gifts!
