How much will it cost us to have a Wine Please Wedding Registry?
Nothing! Our service is free to set up and manage and you won't pay for delivery of your gifts in most metro locations (see our Ts & Cs).
What will our guests pay?
We are both a Wine Registry and a Wine Store so your guests will pay only Wine Store prices with the RRP shown next to our products. A $12.95 service and delivery charge is added to each gift order for packing and shipping your gifts. Our registry price remains lower than many of the other major registries such as David Jones.
What if we want a wine that is not in the Wine Store?
We are more than happy to source other wines that you would like. We are always keen to hear about wines that our customers love that we don’t have on our list! Just drop us an email with the details of the wine and we will be in touch.
Can our guests share the more expensive gifts?
Yes! All gifts that are over $200 are split into shares. Guest can buy one or more shares in these items. If there are any remaining shares once the registry closes you are able to purchase these yourself, or take the value of the purchased shares and put them towards other items.
When should we set up our Wedding Registry?
You should set up your registry a couple of weeks before your invites are sent so that you can provide the details in your invitations. This is the most effective way of communicating your Wine List to your guests and will result in the most gifts for you. If you’ve already sent formal invites and want to add a wine registry then set up your registry as soon as you can and spread the word via word of mouth, email, SMS or which ever method you think will be most effective. You only need to provide our website, your name and the date of your event.
How many bottles of wine should we have on our registry?
There's a famous saying "You can never have too much good wine" which we may have made up ourselves... but it is definitely true. We recommend at least $100 worth of wine per person invited. There is no obligation for you to buy leftover items so go for it. Different wineries, styles and different price points are important to give your guests choice. The most popular wines are usually in the $80 - $120 price range. You will be astounded by the generosity of some people so make sure you put some expensive bottles on the list as well as some mid-range wines. The expensive bottles over $200 are all split into shares anyway!
What happens if all of the shares aren’t purchased or some wines are not available by the time we close our registry?
The registry is closed by Wine Please approximately one week after your wedding at which time we will review your registry. We will be able to see which items were not bought completely or any wines that may have changed vintages or availability over the past few months. We will send you an email with a list of all of the items purchased and who bought them for you as well as store credit for incomplete shared purchases or wines that were not available. You can then use your store credit to purchase the larger items outright or select some more wines and accessories.
When will we receive our gifts?
Once the registry is closed and we’ve confirmed your gifts and store credit (if applicable) we will be in touch to arrange a delivery date which will be approximately four weeks after your wedding. This will give you time to take your honeymoon and make some room for your new wine.
