Great news for brides who want to look good and do good: charity Oxfam has launched its first online wedding shop.

In just a few clicks, the new Oxfam Unwrapped range of wedding lists and favours will ensure you can add a personal AND ethical touch to your big day. Simply set up a personalised Oxfam Unwrapped wedding list online, add a photo and a message to your wedding guests and choose which gifts you’d like to receive, then sit back and wait to receive cards to send out with the invitations. There is even a nifty email widget if you want to go paperless! Gifts range from bags of seed and donating a goat to helping communities get safe water supplies.

Brides-to-be will also be able to get their hands on unique pieces, from unworn designer dresses donated by bridal shops to second-hand and vintage dresses. An ethical 100% silver jewellery line has been added for the occasion, including bracelets, necklaces and earrings, so finding a thoughtful present for your lovely bridesmaids is easy.

Rick Lay, Oxfam Unwrapped Manager said: “The Oxfam Unwrapped wedding list makes it so easy to add something different to the big day and it can be chosen in addition to a traditional store list. A couple of goats, health check-ups and classroom kits are guaranteed to get people smiling both at the wedding and in the communities where these gifts will be used. Maybe even William and Kate will have a look at the endless possibilities on offer on the new shop page and start a personalised Oxfam Unwrapped list”.

Oxfam Unwrapped wedding lists were first launched in 2007 and have raised almost £1 million since. The new shop on the Oxfam website will include details of the eleven Oxfam shops with bridal departments, all of which offer a wide selection of new and nearly new designer dresses, specialist advice and fittings.
