Ask Us About Our Trevena Cross Wedding Gift List
Planning the most special day of your life should be an enjoyable experience and a memorable one too. However, deciding how to tackle the issue of ‘gifts’ can be a challenge (and some!) Like many couples, you may already be living together with a ready-furnished home and all of the gadgets you need; and so prefer to move away from a traditional list. Yet, it goes without saying, that guests are often traditionalists and prefer to give a real gift with a more personal meaning, than money or vouchers.
We have a compromise… A gift list with a difference and without the ‘traditional’!
A list for the home, for the garden, for you… The Trevena Cross Wedding Gift List.
Why choose us?
– Keeping it local is keeping it personal! Whether you’re a regular customer, originally from the area, or live locally now; keeping it local and keeping it Cornish is a nice way to support somewhere that means something to you. Let your local guests pop along to choose something special from your list in person…whilst long-distance guests can have a chat with our friendly staff to choose something perfect from afar. We’ll offer a bespoke service, one that works for you and meets your own individual requirements.
– You may not need to make over the house, but what about the garden? – Take advantage of our expert advice, and give your garden a makeover with all of the ingredients you could possibly need to make your garden dream a reality. Often overlooked or a ‘forgotten space’ when it comes to gift ideas, turn your attention and the attention of others to something original with your list.
– Combine plants and tools for the garden with items for the home – why set boundaries?! We have an extensive gift department that you won’t be able to resist wandering through as you produce your list – cater for the home and for you, as well as for the garden, with one tidy list!
– Mix and match with vouchers too – request some Trevena Cross vouchers too, so that you can enjoy your own spending spree, and conquer those blues once the big day and honeymoon has passed!
How does it work for you the bride/groom?
Visit Trevena Cross Nurseries and produce a list of all of the items you would like to receive from your guests. We recommend putting more rather than less on the list – it gives your guests lots of choice, and remember, not everything has to be purchased from the list!
We will review the list / go through it with you to initially clarify any items listed that may appear ambiguous; and also collect some other details from you (e.g. how you’d like to receive your gifts, your preference with regards to substitutes etc).
You will be given a free tea / coffee & cake voucher to enjoy in the Garden Kitchen Café.
The list will be re-produced in full detail (inc. sizes, prices, colours, quantities) and sent to you for approval via email / post.
You may circulate the list sent to you, to wedding guests of your choosing (e.g. long-distance guests), and we will also give out copies to any of your guests that visit us to purchase a gift for you.
We will keep a master copy of your list, marking it off as gifts are bought / become ‘unavailable’. (Note: The master copy will also be referred to when any long-distance guests/ guests unable to visit call / email to purchase a gift from the list).
We’ll follow your wishes with regards to substitutes, should an item on the list sell out / become unavailable before being bought by a guest. We will relay your wishes to any guests who attempt to purchase an unavailable item, and speak with them regarding re-ordering possibilities / re-acquiring the gift within the available timeframe.
Following the purchasing deadline date, a summary of all purchases will accompany your gift delivery, on the agreed date. If you have decided that your guests should take the gifts away with them to give to you personally / on you wedding day, we will send you the summary of purchases for you to cross-check against your received gifts.
How does it work for you the wedding guest? (Local & long distance).
Visit Trevena Cross Nurseries and ask for a copy of your bride & groom’s wedding gift list at the shop desk. (As a long distance wedding guest, you’ll hopefully have seen a copy of the wedding gift list. You can contact us by phone 01736 763880 or email if you’d like to see an up to date list of gift availability and/or have a chat to confirm which gift you’d like to purchase for your bride.
With list in hand, have a look around and choose one (or more) of the gifts on the list that you would like to purchase for your bride and groom.
Take it to the cash desk / confirm what you’d like to purchase from the list, and confirm if you’d like it gift wrapped (if applicable).
Pay for your purchase(s) and then take the gift away with you (if this option has been chosen) or leave it with us to deliver to the bride and groom on their chosen date. In the latter case, complete a gift message that you would like attached to the gift
(We can take payment for long distance purchases over the phone or via a secure web link through our website. As a long distance guest, we can gift wrap your item(s) if applicable, write a gift message, and hold it/them either until an arranged pick-up or until the bride and groom’s chosen delivery date, when they will be sent to their specified delivery address).
In the unfortunate event that you can’t find the gift you’d like to purchase, let us know and we’ll help you look for it/check stock levels. If it turns out that we no longer have the gift in stock, we’ll confirm with you what your bride & groom would like to do in such an event i.e. whether they’d like a close substitute, or vouchers to buy something else at a later date. Alternatively, you can choose something else from the list that we do have in stock.
