05 Jan Easy Gift Registry
BETTER THAN A WISHING WELL
Gone are the days where gift tables were overflowing with gifts for your new home together. Most couples nowadays already have all the things they need and love for their home.
A wishing well isn’t always the best option, especially when those gifts could be invested into your dream wedding, before the Big Day, while you’re still planning it!
Just like having a gift register for your honeymoon or your favourite store, you can now register your wedding package with Moving Films.
WHO’S IT FOR
The success of any gift registry is determined by its visibility and accessibility to your guests, the price point available to suit a variety of budgets, and a trusted payment portal. Check out this ultimate guide from Auckland Weddings.
Just like going in with friends on a big-ticket present, our gift registry fits every budget from $1 to $1000 (or more), all from your phone! If your guests would rather organise payment by internet banking, that’s fine too.
For the guests that want to get something meaningful, for the guests on a budget but who still want to contribute towards an awesome gift, for friends and family unable to attend your wedding due to lockdowns or travel restrictions, but who still want to be a part of your day – the gift of a film and photography package is perfect!
SET UP A GIFT REGISTRY PAGE
Setting up a gift registry is easy! After you’ve confirmed your booking with us and paid the 30% deposit to secure your wedding date and package price, let us know you’d like to set up a registry and we’ll send you through your personal webpage link.
PERSONALISE YOUR PAGE
• Decide if you want the page public or password protected
• Decide if you want the progress bar expressed in $ or %
• Optional – send us a photo for the header – perhaps an engagement photo
• Optional – send us a personal message to paste into the page
SHARE YOUR PAGE
Once your page has been set up, you’re ready to start sharing it with your guests either via a web link with your wedding invitations, on your wedding website or email the link to those that ask for wedding gift ideas.
Guests can fill in a Gift Certificate Request form on your page to receive a personalised gift certificate either a PDF or a physical copy.
We’ll update the payments, from whom and the balance on your client page as gifts come in. Visit your client page regularly to check progress.
If your balance is close to being reached, we’ll check with you if you want to close off the registry, or you can choose to continue and put the extra funds towards a package upgrade, extra hours or Queensberry album design and products (that’s if you’re getting photography with us).
Two weeks before your wedding day, any balance left is due for payment. Any extras can be allocated when we meet for our Pre-wedding Meeting.
