Wedding Gifts Direct makes it easy for both yourself and your guests!
Ultimately an online gift registry takes the guesswork out of shopping for a wedding gift, and takes the physical effort out of the equation! Essentially, it’s a super easy process for both parties.
IT IS MORE ACCESSIBLE FOR YOU
Creating an online Wedding Gifts Direct Registry from home provides you with as much time as you need to curate your wish list, whilst also allowing you to do a little research on products and items before you select them. However, the best part is the flexibility – all at your own pace you can add items, customise wishing wells, and remove any items at any time that suits you.
An online registry also means you can set it up together without worrying about the hassle of going to a department store and booking an appointment.
If you prefer, we always do offer you the option of a phone / skype consultation too and every couple is assigned their very own Bridal Consultant to help you through with every step!
IT IS MORE ACCESSIBLE FOR YOUR GUESTS
An online gift registry is easy for every guest worldwide and they do not even require internet. We speak to many guests located in remote locations within Australia who are limited with internet access and regularly speak via email with International guests. All guests at any time are always welcome to call our consultants on 1300 443 834 or email@example.com with any questions or process an order.
They are no fees for international purchases from our end, this will be dependant on your guests bank and if fees are applicable from their end.
An online gift registry with Wedding Gifts Direct is convenient for all guests, but even more so for guests based Internationally. Travelling with wedding gifts is a challenging and expensive exercise, so the benefit of an online registry for those based overseas as they can easily purchase a gift from your registry and have it delivered to your doorstep, wrapped and with a card if they so choose. It can’t get any more convenient than that!!
SOME WORDS FROM OUR RECENT COUPLE SUSIE AND LIAM;
“As we were getting married overseas, I was keen to have a gift list as many of our friends and family had asked how to go about giving us a gift when they didn’t know what we would want or need. Having looked around at a variety of wedding registries, both in store and online, I was a little unsure about what would be best. After signing up to a few different internet sites, I was sick of getting junk mail and decided this was not the best option UNTIL I discovered Wedding Gifts Direct. After registering on their site I got a friendly phone call from Lucinda who explained how it all worked and said that she would be available to talk to anytime through the process. She made it sound so easy so I jumped back online and was delighted to see that almost everything I had seen in various stores was available through their website. Prices were competitive and anything not on their website they tried to match or source (for free). One very big plus was that we didn’t have to finalise the registry until after the wedding, something that most other places made you do a week or so before. Once we did finalise it the delivery process was quick and easy – everything arrived on the designated day 4-5 weeks later and we were delighted. I would have no hesitation in recommending Wedding Gifts Direct to people, and in fact I honestly can’t imagine how they could have been better.”
“We loved EVERYTHING about Wedding Gifts Direct! The convenience, the ease, the AMAZING customer service, and the beautiful gifts! It’s so easy and they are so helpful with anything you need! Highly recommend! You really do have some of the best customer service I have ever received!”
Katelyn and Jonny – 2017
FEES FOR YOUR GUESTS WHEN THEY PURCHASE –
The once off fee for guests purchasing gifts is only $4.95 per order.
For wishing wells contributions there is a $9.95 per order service fee.
Some couples have selected to pay this fee themselves, but we have found that this is not necessary and have never had complaints about the fee. All online Wishing Wells charge a fee for their service, and ours is the lowest available.
You can also review our wishing well comparison chart should you wish to compare our service and see why we have been named Australia’s First and Finest Online Wedding Registry since 2000.
FEES FOR YOU (NONE – It’s FREE!)
Creating a gift registry is FREE!!!
The only time you may ever face a fee if you ass wishing wells – a $99 Wishing Well establishment fee is charged (once only!) on Wishing Well/Contribution registries only. As you will read in our terms and conditions – $99 is only applicable if you have less than $2,400 in gifts purchased from your Gift Registry or decide to only have a wishing well registry. The $99 is deducted when we transfer guest contributions to your account.
We do find that many guests will still like to purchase a physical gift for you, so we highly recommend you combine some gifts on your registry as well.
Majority of the registries we do are combination of wishing wells and gift registries and most of our couples with combined registries still receive a FREE contribution or wishing well registry as they easily meet the $2,400 threshold (That’s only 24 guest purchases of $100 each)!
We currently have a number of special promotions too that you would be eligible for with registering here this month.
Wedding Gifts Direct do not charge for the delivery of gifts Australia wide.
A separate delivery fee may be charged to couples for the delivery of oversized gifts by Wedding Gifts Direct this is in line with the department stores and other specialist gift registries.

It is never too early to start a Wedding Gifts Direct Registry. Whether it be for your Engagement, Kitchen Tea / Bridal Shower, Wedding or all 3! We recently spoke to Sarah, a recent WGD Bride who has been through the registry process with some tips;
“We started our Wedding Gifts Direct Engagement and Wedding registry the week we got engaged. I know that seems eager, but my fiancé and I knew exactly where we wanted to head online to start our registry having used the Wedding Gifts Direct previously for a friend and so glad we did!
We spoke with our Bridal Consultant right from the beginning via email and and phone and I did learn some super helpful tips straight away and in the process that proved to be the key ingredients to perfecting our dream registry.
Pick gifts at all prices.
We found our guests loved the option of split sharing! This allowed us to select larger ticket items (that we could only dream of!) and split into smaller amounts. We were lucky enough to be gifted a kitchen aid, that a number of family members went in together for!! This made us so happy and so thankful to have a staple kitchen item we can now keep for generation to generation….we plan to host a dinner party soon and invite all family members over for dinner to test it out!! 😀
Look for opportunities to upgrade.
At first many items you may dismiss many items you have already….but when you think about it, many of those current items are most likely not great quality (as more than likely first out of home purchases and hand-me down)….so really this is the perfect time to upgrade with matching sets! It was certainly time to retire all the mismatched plates in my apartment and now we have a beautiful set I am proud to bring out for dinner parties.
It really does make sense to think immediately of the current season, ie winter is when we were engaged – So straight away I started thinking of beautiful soft and cosy bed linens and comfy throw blankets. Our consultant however sent us a bridal checklist that also included some tips with summer items and we included some new beach umbrellas, Weber bbq and alfresco pillows. Now we cant wait for our summer picnics and are set all year around!
Visit your registry semi-frequently.
The best part of Wedding Gifts Direct is the flexibility. We kept visiting our registry often right up until the week of our wedding and adding items!!! I am so happy we were able to do this and took some pressure of not having to have our registry set in stone by a certain time before our wedding, which i have heard other registries do….
This is YOUR registry, so add what makes you happy.
Wedding Gifts Direct offer sourcing. So I sent our consultant a link to a few items we had seen at a department store, and the team sourced and added it just for us!!!
Most importantly however, have some fun with your registry and the Wedding Gifts Direct team are always there to help, so happy shopping and all the best to future couples. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did” – Sarah
