A Wedding Gift Registry for International Couples
French people marrying Germans, Irish people marrying Italians… the world of international weddings is a hive of activity, and we at Zankyou should know! So if you’re an international couple, or if your outlook is international even though you share the same nationality, why not take a look at our international gift registry with some great ideas for gifts for jet-setters!
Thanks to the Zankyou gift registry, life is made easier for you and your guests. You can choose the gifts you like, instead of having to transport unwanted presents back home on the plane, and your guests’ luggage will be mercifully lighter. They can also check out your wedding website in their own language, making pre-wedding preparations a little easier to understand.
So, in honor of our wonderfully international weddings and our couples who love to look beyond their home frontiers, here is some inspiration for things you can include in an international gift registry.
- What about some language courses? Though love knows no language barriers, you may not speak your partner’s mother tongue, so why not welcome yourself into your new family with a big “hello” in his/her language? (Saying your vows in a bilingual wedding is even better, so get practicing!)
- Experiences you can only do in other countries. While I love my native Pennsylvania, I’m well aware that the best pasta can be found in Italy. So why not put an authentic Italian dinner in a restaurant in Italy on your list? If you want to do all the adventure sports you can fit into your honeymoon, you can register for adrenaline-pumping outings on honeymoon in New Zealand.
- What about flights? While we’re all trying to be more eco-friendly with our wedding planning, you will probably have to fly home now and again. So why not ask for contributions to flights home? Then you can use some of the money intended for flights to make a contribution to The Carbon Fund.
- Credit for Skype. You love your friends, they love you. Phoning home is expensive, unless you use VoIP programs like Skype. Check out how much a 3-hour call home would cost and list it on your Zankyou gift registry. Whoever buys it gets to talk your ear off for 3 hours on the phone!
Imagine this: you’re an American bride who loves Italian design, with a French fiancé who wants to expand his language skills beyond ‘I do’. So, you list an intensive English course for your new husband at the British Council in Milan while you spend the day shopping! This is all possible with Zankyou!
Opening your gift registry with Zankyou is easy, free and full of benefits!
