Wedding Lists at Grays
As a bride to be, you will be familiar with the hunt to find ‘something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue’ for your special day. Grays provides a one-stop haven, whether you are looking for an antique engagement ring (Victorian to 1960s cocktail rings), wedding dresses (1920s gowns, corsets and lace petticoats), bridesmaid presents (brooches, picture frames, compacts) or even underwear and garters!
The virtue of buying from Grays rather than the high street is a sense of owning a piece of timeless history that is special and unique to you. Diamond engagement rings start at £1000, beautiful 1920s wedding dresses from £300, headdresses and tiaras from £30 and vintage brooches from £5.
The Alternative Wedding List …
What do you buy a modern couple who already have the toaster and matching towel sets?
Fifty years ago, the wedding list was a small sheet of paper which could include items such as wooden washing tongs, meat mincer or a set of silver spoons from the General Trading Company. Today’s savvy couples who have typically ‘set up’ home and purchased the usual basics from the high street are taking advantage of Grays ‘alternative’ wedding list service.
Lists have even included sybaritic treasures such as vintage frocks, 1960s lights and antiquities. Each wedding service is tailor-made to suit the couple’s requirements. Some wedding guests buy ‘off list’ and some purchase Gift Vouchers leaving the choice to the couple to enjoy after the Honeymoon.
‘Our service is simply a reflection of the demand for individuality, for those couples who want something really amazing for either themselves or their home, while guests can feel they are buying something that can be treasured’
Grays has a glittering array of antique jewellery, watches, ceramics, silverware, Asian and Islamic antiques, and a diverse cross section from glassware to silver cocktails shakers.
Personal shoppers are at hand to guide couples in creating their ideal list, to simplify the process and advise on investment pieces.
Start your married life in style!
