Why setting up a wedding list ?


When you will come back from your sweet honeymoon, you will finally open your wedding gifts. Each of your guest would like to offer you something really special for this important occasion.

However, the item many people will find special might not be what YOU wish to receive : a beautiful and very rare wall clock, a crystal swan? Not forgetting your two micro waves, 3 sets of plates of 48 pieces each, and its 365 tablecloths, one for each day of the year!!! Would you dare bring your gifts back to the store ?

With Ameliste service, avoid all this stress. Draw your wedding list by compiling all items you would like to receive from any website and use your contribution value as you like. Finally, a wedding list for everyone and for everything !

What items can I add to my wedding list ?

Why thank my gift list contributors?


Send an automatic thank-you card to your gift givers is a must for elementary reasons. Ameliste provides an online thank-you service, and we advise you to send a thank-you note, even if you chose another mean.

In fact, guests are usually worried to know if you have received their money contribution or their gift and could be surprised if they have no answer from you. You can preview your thank-you cards before sending them, you can choose the design, the style and the colors. Ameliste also offers you to manage your thank-you cards from your wedding account area to know exactly to whom you have already sent the message and those which are pending.

When should I thank guests who have provided me with gifts?


With our thank-you card service, you can send thank-you notes to all your guests as long as you receive their contribution or gifts, before and after the wedding. This will enable you to save a lot of time. With another service than the one Ameliste provides to you, you would rather wait after the wedding day to thank them as you will have to order thank-you cards and wait till you receive them.

How can I change my password ?


Log in to your ameliste wedding account, click on "Update profile".
You can update the fields "Username" and "Password" whenever it is neccessary.
  Then click on "Save".


When can I close my wedding gift list ?


At any time. You can manage your gift list exactly the way you want. Our piece of advice would be to keep your gift list open, few months after the wedding. It often happens that guests come back on your gift list to make another gift. Some of your relatives must be late and will be happy to know that your gift list is still open... Don't forget to thank all of your guests.

How can I close my gift list?


Contact Ameliste to notify your wish to close the wedding list.
By any means in your convenience:  e-mail, telephone, post mail.
