Frankly, Amazon’s new wedding service is such a good idea that we don’t know why somebody hadn’t thought of it before now. They’ve moved on from stocking mere books and DVD’s to some fantastic ranges of home and garden items (think Marco Pierre White cookware, iPods or Nigella Lawson latte mugs to name but a few) all ripe for the picking…or should that be mouse-clicking?!
The registration is simple. Browsing the items whilst you put your feet up is far preferable to bashing your way through the shopping centre on a weekend and all you have to do is click the wedding list button to add an item. Your guests can do a quick search for your list where ever they may be (ideal for overseas guests) and have them sent straight to you. Amazon will also provide a thank you list so you know exactly who you should send your pleasure-strewn handwritten notes to. Genius!
