To keep in line with the gift idea, this idea is simply integrating a gift registry into an app. It’s quite bland really, but I had this idea the year before I got married and that is f**king 12 years ago so there weren’t apps like this at the time.
The difference with a wish list app is that you can share the management of the list with somebody else. Not groundbreaking really, you could just use a google sheet like we did. If the couple gives the creation of the list to a bridesmaid so then they won’t know what their guests have reserved in the list, people can just log in with their account and put their name or mail beside the item(s) they want to buy as a gift. The only thing the apps add is the ability for the couple to add items to the list without having to email Betty the bridesmaid every time. In the end, guests usually give a card with cash instead and that is pretty much the best thing you can get. The newly wed couple have all these things to pay (the room, photographer, food, etc) and the guests don’t have to go around the store trying to find what the couple want. Note this could be useful to baby showers too though, where as a young couple without kids you don’t know what you need before the little pumpkin is out.
Any site or app like this nowadays?
