Beat the Recession with a Cash Gift List

August 2013



When it comes to planning the perfect wedding, few brides & grooms are letting predictions of economic doom-and-gloom shadow plans for their big day.

Wedding industry experts have reported that wedding planning in the UK remains largely unaffected by the recession as most brides-&-grooms-to-be refuse to compromise on plans for their perfect day. But with the average cost of a wedding in Britain now standing at a whopping £20,273, 2013 bank balances may cause many couples to shed more than a few post-wedding tears.

So, what happens when we're unwilling to compromise on plans for our dream day and yet the world economy continues to circle the financial drain?

Setting up a cash gift list is the perfect way to allow your friends and family to contribute in a meaningful way to your future lives together. Forget the candy dishes and scatter cushions this year and receive money for your wedding gifts instead. A cash gift list looks exactly like a regular giftlist, containing all the items you want most. The only difference is that instead of receiving salad bowls & ornaments, you'll receive the much-needed money instead. This allows you to spend your wedding money on the things you want and need most for the future.


The advantage of a  Just the Thing  cash giftlist is that it offers couples the maximum flexibility when putting together their wishes for the future. Combine charity, honeymoon, home and garden wishes in one secure location. Your guests simply click on items to purchase, and you receive the cash. Your gift list looks and works exactly like a regular giftlist; it couldn't be easier.
