What were your concerns about giving / receiving money?

With a destination wedding, we were terrified of carrying cash in multiple currencies and also didn't want our guests  scrambling to find greeting cards in a foreign place.

How did you decide to use The GC?

Other providers' websites looked archaic and tacky!

What did you like about The GC?

The Gift Collective is a breath of fresh air in the wedding industry. Incredible customer service and support, easy-to-use and incredibly innovative when it comes to the design of a personalized registry. Seriously, from the moment I sent an email and got a personal response in quick time, I just felt like you actually cared!

What are your thoughts on having an online wishing well?

The GC is a super creative way to ask your guests to contribute to the cost of your wedding, honeymoon or just your future life together - think of it as a 'digital' wishing well. It was so nice to receive digital cards from family &  friends and payments straight into our bank account. I highly recommend The GC in place of a traditional wishing well or  wedding gift registry.

Any tips for brides?

The GC takes multiple currencies, so if you are planning a destination wedding or have guests from around the world attending your wedding - this is the only platform out there you should consider.

What's the most surprising thing you experienced, thanks to The GC?

We received lovely digital messages and gifts from those who would have been highly unlikely to contribute in more traditional ways, but the ease of The Gift Collective allowed them to show their love in a more innovative way. We've  been reading our messages over and over, it's so nice to have them stored digitally.
