LOCAL REGISTRIES

Bespoke

Bespoke has been one of our top recommended choices for many years as they were one of the first registries to offer artisanal products from high-end local designers. Ever since the lovely London-born Laura married her South African husband and was disappointed by the lack of sophisticated and stylish registry options available, she decided to make her own! The Bespoke registry doesn’t only offer homeware like many others in the industry, but one-of-a-kind artworks, outdoor furniture and self-created items too.

What sets Bespoke apart: Unique functional details

  • The bridal couple can ‘star’ their favourite items, and in doing so guide their guests to their top choices
  • We love their contribution function, which allows guests to contribute to a more expensive gift to ensure that couples still receive those “wish list” items.
  • Couples have the option to swap out or consolidate items before closing their registry to ensure they receive all the gifts they really want

 

Gift Tree

Gift Tree originated from humble beginnings when three close friends whom, after catching up over dinner about their recent weddings, decided to create a wedding registry with all the items they desired for their new homes! From knit blankets for cold winters, to Turkish towels for the summer, to champagne flutes for nights spent entertaining with friends. Since then, Gift Tree has become one of our favourite registries and has evolved with a gorgeous, fresh new look and boasts some exciting new international suppliers – however we especially love the focus on supporting locally established and emerging creative South African designers!

What sets Gift Tree apart: Personalised service

  • Consultants are available at each step of the registry process
  • Gifts are delivered individually wrapped along with a hand-written cards
  • A “Thank You Card” management service to thank your guests

 

Yuppiechef

Yuppiechef was founded in 2006 by two good friends and only thirty-two products. More than a decade later, their goal remains to offer South Africans the best kitchen and home items online and to be the very best at doing it. Their wedding registry offering has that same goal – it is a sophisticated service and designed for complete ease of use.

We recommend Yuppiechef for the couple looking to deck out their home with a mixture of local and international crockery, appliances, soft furnishes and even the finest ingredients! Having sourced, tried and tested the best quality products they can find, we are consistently impressed by Yuppiechef’s attention to detail.

INTERNATIONAL REGISTRIES

The Harrods Gift Bureau

The Harrods Gift Bureau can be considered as the original registry, having been established long before the online portals we know (and love!) today – although their online platform is still one of the best. Harrods’s Gift Bureau describes their type of clients as “Two style-savvy individuals that are looking to create an aspirational yet accessible gift list.” On offer to choose from are bespoke homeware collections, extraordinary works of art, Harrods’ exclusive pieces and even contributions to a couples five-star honeymoon!
