I have always interpreted wedding gift lists as the ne plus ultra of chutzpah, and the liquidation of online wedding gift service Wrapit only highlights the expectations and effrontery of 21st century newlyweds today.

The attendance of guests should give sufficient gratification, and fulfilment should not be judged on material remuneration.

At a friend’s recent wedding, 36 toasters were welded together in the form of a giant toaster man and concreted into their back garden. The jollity for all concerned was worth more than costly household items supplied on demand for the bride and groom.

Consider budgeting less for the actual wedding, leaving yourselves adequate money to purchase the luxuries you desire without making stipulations on your guests.

The Times

Sir, wedding gifts ( Lazz Hewings '"Shun wedding lists", 8 Aug) are very much like university degrees: so carefully planned and chosen in advance of the occasion, and at the expense of one's relatives; stored away and rarely used once one starts on the journey thereafter.
