Antoinette and Johan Wedding on 02/05/2015
Anyone searching for a contribution wedding registry that is classy and non-demanding, needs to check out Zankyou. Satisfaction is guaranteed for those wanting to personalise their site. Zankyou suited our needs as an international couple perfectly. I am American and my husband is French. This was the only site we found providing services for both our accounts. The language and currency options make this site easy to understand for our friends and family that reside either in France or the USA. The customer service is exceptional ~ providing help and information every step of the way and they always give you a call back no matter what country you are in! Merci Zankyou!
Carolina and Bruno Wedding on 13/07/2013
Bruno and I met in the Democratic Republic of Congo 4 years ago, I am from Rome and he is from Montreal and we currently live in Washington DC...
I don't know what we could have done without Zankyou! We had friends coming to the wedding from all over the world, and some of them than couldn't make it but still wanted to give a gift.
Using Zankyou was easy for everybody, we will spread the word!
Audrey and Régis Wedding on 02/05/2015
With Zankyou we were able to create a wedding list completely tailored to our needs and to every guest's budget. From the honeymoon, to charity donations, to kitchen appliances... Everyone could take part however they wanted! We even kept the list open for a while after the wedding!
Lorena and Alberto Wedding on 03/05/2014
I'm Mexican and Alberto's from Madrid. We decided to get married in Marbella. We chose Zankyou so that our guests, not only from Spain, but also Mexico, the US and Germany, could find out all the details of our wedding and at the same time see original ideas for gifts that they could give us. Zankyou helped us a lot. We created a dynamic website and our guests were kept well-informed about our magical day!
Emily and Bruce Wedding on 26/07/2013
We were so pleased with the fun and free service that Zankyou has to offer. After searching through many online wedding guest lists/gift lists/registries, we stumbled upon Zankyou which offered an excellent service free of charge and was very user friendly. We set up our very own wedding page, allowing us to upload our own photographs and information, providing our guests with easy access to RSVP (especially when we were getting married abroad and all of our guests were located all over the world!) and find out information about our wedding - allowing us to have all of our information online and in one place to prepare our seating plans or find our guests' addresses. As a Wedding Planner/Coordinator myself, I will definitely recommend Zankyou to future couples, it is an easy and effective way to store your wedding guest/gift information, taking some of the hassle and stress out of your wedding planning and preparation. Thank-you Zankyou!
Andrea and Arturo Wedding on 08/11/2014
At first I just wanted to create a website for my wedding but I had no idea how to go about it and I thought it would be more costly, given that in Mexico wedding websites are quite trendy. We also wanted to make things easier for our guests, especially those from all over the world (China, Spain, France, UK, US). Also, relatives coming from all over Mexico could have all the information instantly without having to worry about the invitation not arriving on time. The page allowed me to include details that I had thought about for the wedding but didn't know how to conceptualise, for example, telling my guests the story of how we met. One other important aspect that attracted us was the ability to have an online gift list with experiences and charitable causes that are close to our hearts, rather than physical gifts. One of the most useful things we discovered was the guest management section which showed us what details we were missing from each guest (postal address, email address, phone number... etc.), as well as the ability to RSVP through the website. Bottom line: I LOVED IT, THANK YOU!
Eva and Ramsey Wedding on 20/07/2013
We used Zankyou to organize our wedding and we were so happy with the result. We had researched a number of other sites, but none compared to the functionality of Zankyou. From sending out our save the dates, communicating with guests, organizing seating arrangements all the way to organizing our gift list, Zankyou made the whole process so much easier to navigate. The customer service is great too. We are still on our wedding buzz, and wish we could do it all over again!
Kimberly and Alexandre Wedding on 13/07/2013
We chose Zankyou because we already lived together before getting married and had everything we needed to furnish our apartment. However, we needed to fund our honeymoon (we wanted to organize it without a travel agency) and also fund part of our wedding. The flexibility of Zankyou and the ability to transfer money directly into our account attracted us to this site and we have done exactly what we wanted to do with our list! Additionally, the website is very simple to use and allows you to mount a mini site, which is very cute. We also had a lot of positive feedback on our gift list and our guests were delighted to participate in every step of our honeymoon. So, we say "Thanks Zankyou!"
Ashley and Mirko Wedding on 29/06/2013
Thank you for your great service! We had tried another wedding website before Zankyou, but decided to switch once we learned about all the extra features that Zankyou offers for a better price! We were thrilled to have such a user friendly site with integrated features like an app for iPhone and Android, a personalized web page, a guest book for comments from friends and family, our choice of song selection, gorgeous customizable layouts, photo albums and a beautiful registry that accepted cash for specific gifts. We knew that transporting gifts from Italy to the US would be extremely difficult, so we asked for the 'value' of specific gifts instead. We were then able to thank each guest for their specific 'gift' rather than just a generic monetary gift. We had friends and family from Italy, the United States, Germany and France who really appreciated this as well! They were able to just click on a gift and 'voila' - no time-consuming registry shopping, wrapping or transportation concerns. It was really fun for us to create together and to enjoy throughout the whole process, especially when we were notified of a new wedding gift!
We certainly recommend Zankyou to everybody. Even our older relatives thought it was easy to use and appreciated the convenience of being able to go back and refer to details about the wedding. We really enjoyed filling our website pages with information about our 'story' and the wedding plans. Zankyou made it so easy to communicate with all of our extended loved ones from around the world. We were able to save time and money by streamlining the complex details of our international wedding into one beautiful resource. We'll cherish our beautiful website for years to come. Thank you!
Marcia and Jonathan Wedding on 06/07/2013
After 16 years together, the moment arrived: OUR WEDDING! Like many couples nowadays, we had lived together for a while and our house had everything it needed and everything you would see on a typical wedding list. We then faced a challenge – how could our guests give us gifts without the traditional way of giving us gifts or transferring money into our account as we didn’t want this at all! We then faced a second challenge – find a website that could provide a quality service at a reasonable price. Then we found Zankyou! The site was very professional and they answered all the questions that I had. Thank you to all the staff at Zankyou!
Astrid and Bruno Wedding on 08/06/2012
We found this site to be great! It's a concept wedding gift list where you receive payments directly into your account - very useful. Indeed it gave us much more freedom in the choice of our gifts as opposed to the traditional gift list. It was also possible to make a website, which was simple and easy.
Paula and Marcello Wedding on 27/08/2011
We heard about Zankyou through a friend who was getting married at the same time. As Marcello and I had already been living together for a year and a half, we didn't really need anything for our home. We knew during the preparations for the wedding that we were going to have a baby and Zankyou was perfect! We have created a list of virtual gifts for the baby's room. Everyone loved the idea, and us too, of course. Guests loved giving gifts to the baby. Everyone was familiar with Internet transactions so we had no worries. Sincerely, we recommend Zankyou to all our friends!
Dina and Mike Wedding on 01/05/2011
We're both older and already have a furnished house. We set up gifts that we could use after the wedding such as a wedding fund, airline tickets for a trip and hotel room for two. We chose Zankyou because it was really easy to set up. The website is easy to use and it was great being able to update our information and our guest list at any time, using all the wedding planning tools. We loved that people could give us gifts online that we could transfer as funds to our bank account.
What was unique about our wedding? We took all our pictures beforehand so after we said our vows we went directly to the bar and had a shot! I loved being able to mingle with our guests.
Alexandra and Gonçalo Wedding on 14/07/2012
Zankyou came to us as the perfect opportunity to make a personalised wedding list that was also easily accessible. We wanted to make a list for our honeymoon, but without having to be dependent on a travel agency. We found a solution with Zankyou. Besides allowing fully customisable wishlists, Zankyou allowed us to tell the guests all the detailed information about the wedding. This was just what we needed! And so we created our own list of gifts. It was very practical and we contactted our guests whenever it needed to through the messaging system, which is very useful. Everything worked perfectly and we strongly recommend Zankyou.
Camille and Ian Wedding on 14/07/2012
We chose Zankyou mostly for the wedding gift list because we wanted to organize our honeymoon ourselves. It was very simple and nice to create the different stages of our journey. We are very happy with our choice. As well as that, quick transfers and the first one being free was a big advantage. After creating the gift list, we added other items to finally create a real wedding website with information on the wedding date, maps, accommodation, etc. ... And the guests really enjoyed the site since it was easy to access and use. Nothing but compliments! As for our wedding, it was a wonderful weekend surrounded by all our family and friends, with a bonus of amazing fireworks! So a little advice for brides and grooms: plan well in advance of your wedding, it's a big task! And above all, enjoy the day!
Sandra and Nicolas Wedding on 03/09/2011
What I first liked about Zankyou was the name. As a French woman living in the US, it is so much fun to hear and pronounce it. The website is nice and easy to use. I love the graphics because they remind me of a French comic book I love. The wedding gift list is convenient; gifts can be customized and it is multilingual. Customer service is great. I communicated with both with the French and US teams. They are really fast, friendly and gave accurate answers. I am definitely going to recommend Zankyou to all my friends!
Laetitia and Hervé Wedding on 03/12/2010
It was so useful to have all the wedding reception information in one place. Not to mention, the site is very easy to use. The various options we had to personalise our wedding website allowed us to create custom gifts where the guests could even choose how to pay for the gift. We really enjoyed using the RSVP features of the site. We were also able to create gift list for the baby we were expecting :D. A big heartfelt thanks to Zankyou.
Karolina and Tomek Wedding on 09/06/2012
A Zankyou wedding website is the perfect tool to help you organize a wedding. We shared our Zankyou website on our wedding invitation and all our guests were able to track the various stages of preparation for the celebration. Zankyou allows you to create your dream site, matching it to your individual preferences. The Zankyou wedding site allows you to create an extremely detailed wedding day schedule, guest books, and even a wedding countdown. Zankyou is simple, yet fun and de-stresses the entire process. The idea of the wedding website appeals to all - foreign visitors, younger and older generations of guests, and made it much easier for us to contact them.
Anne-Catherine and Mathieu Wedding on 24/09/2011
We used Zankyou for our wedding as a recommendation from a friend. Given that we have family in Belgium and the United States, the site helped our guests to know the schedule of the big day despite the distance that separates us and they were able to choose the accommodation that we had recommended for them. Zankyou also allowed our guests to follow our civil wedding, which was held two months before the main party, through photos. Best of all, Zankyou allowed us to create a wedding list to suit our taste.We just selected our own gifts (sofa, dining table, etc). The site also allows you to customize all sections whatever way you want. We created a special section for those not familiar with the UK with ideas of tours and with photos of the country. Our wedding with our families was held just last week, and we will use Zankyou to display the best photos of the big day. Our guests are now very familiar with the site and look forward to the photos! Zankyou really helped our marriage, it is original and well organized!
Teresa and Tiago Wedding on 18/08/2012
We decided to use Zankyou not only for the online wedding list but also to be able to easily spread information about the wedding. It was great to organize the tables, in a very simple and practical way and it allowed us to keep the addresses of guests who gave us gifts so we can send them the thank you cards. Additionally, you can personalise the site however you like. We put as the background the paper that we use in our invitations, menus, etc., and inserted a song to cheer up those who visited the site. Everything went very well, Zankyou was effective and safe! We definitely recommend it!
Raffaella and Matteo Wedding on 28/05/2011
With Zankyou it has been possible to easily manage our wedding gift list although our guests were from many different cities and the wedding was in a different city than where we live. We lived together for 6 years before the wedding, and decided to do a very innovative gift lift to renovate our new home and another more classic list for our honeymoon. Result: everyone was happy, both the more conservative part of the family and our are more "modern" friends, they still call us to find out how the work is going in the home (and perhaps with the excuse to invite themselves to dinner).
Diana and Diogo Wedding on 03/03/2012
We found Zankyou through a friend who had used it for their wedding. The truth is that Zankyou is ideal for couples who want to give some "hints" before the wedding day as well as being practical and simple. It is very interactive and guests can have a "taste" of the spirit of the couple through your own personalised website. The option of being able to upload photos and customise the look of each site is great because it will give the appearance that the wedding starts from the creation of the site.
Isabelle and André Wedding on 02/07/2011
We thought about an online wedding list as our guests were all coming from different countries. When we talked about Zankyou, we quickly realized that it was the service we needed. Our experience was very positive at every level. The site is easy to use and customer service deserves a medal! They are fast, available and attentive. Brazil has some wedding websites that are fairly complicated and I have to say that we liked Zankyou for both its advanced features and design. Undoubtedly, we would recommend it to anyone.
Tiffany and Karl Wedding on 13/08/2011
The unique thing about our wedding is that Karl and I are doing a modern twist to the Vietnamese traditional wedding. We are having a traditional American ceremony but yet we will still have a tea ceremony at our reception for guest to experience our Vietnamese tradition. As a bride I wanted a list that was convenient and easy. With me working, trying to plan my wedding and other things going on, I had no time to go to the store and pick out the things I wanted for my list. So I went with Zankyou, with a few clicks I was done. Plus I like the cash back which was a bonus! My friends and family love the idea and wished they went with Zankyou for their weddings. My friend is returning her wedding gifts and that is a real waste of time. The best thing about the service was the fast response from the representative, Jane, who helped me set up my list. She was so quick to respond to me. I love that I'm dealing with real people each time. I would definitely recommend Zankyou to everyone!
Russell and Stella Wedding on 03/07/2009
We chose Zankyou for our wedding list and we are very happy. We have included some classic and some more modern type "experiences" in our gift list such as a dinner at our favorite restaurant or tango lessons. A lot of people congratulated us on our site. I would do it again without hesitation, it allowed us to do the many things we wanted to do.
Alexandra Roberts and Danny Robert Wedding on 28/08/2011
Since we are going on a cruise to Alaska for our honeymoon, we included shore excursions and tours in our Zankyou list. We included charities we feel strongly about and also a couple bottles of whiskey we've been dying to try! Zankyou is really user-friendly that seems to be lacking in other online lists. We tried 4 others before finding Zankyou. The transfer into your bank account is extremely helpful and website has a great design. I would absolutely recommend Zankyou to my friends.
Mariellen and Raphael Wedding on 20/08/2011
We chose the site because I needed a site where I could get the value of gifts as money and thought that Zankyou had the best conditions for me and for the guests. Our experience was great, everything went really well. The change of the site layout happened while I was receiving my gifts. I needed to re-adjust the site a bit, but had no major problems (it was even better). The guests who commented said they really liked it. Surely, I will recommend Zankyou to my friends!
Madalena and Francisco Wedding on 14/07/2012
We chose Zankyou mainly because it is very user friendly and allows you to not only create a diverse wedding gift wishlist but also create a more personal page for the wedding (with photos, information about the day, etc). It was very helpful that we could choose various items (without having to restrict ourselves to one store). It was like creating a Facebook account for our wedding in reality! Even today we have friends who ask us when are we going to put the wedding photos on the site, since they visit it regularly!
Michelle and Marcelo Wedding on 09/09/2011
The first reason for choosing this type of website is the fact that we live abroad and do not have the methods to bring the gifts home from Brazil. The second and more important reason for choosing Zankyou was a set of benefits that they favored in our case: the possibility of receiving the gifts in our own Brazilian currency or British pounds, no need to pay a fee for opening the site (which most charge) and the lowest gift list transaction rate. After much research we chose Zankyou and its huge convenience for couples who live far away from family and friends. The experience was excellent! I was surprised the amount of people who chose to buy from our online gift list, because apart from the site, we put two lists of stores with real gifts (one in Brazil and one in the UK), thinking that many people may not feel comfortable with a financial contribution. But they were very pleased! Even many of the older guests who weren't so used to shopping online and those who don't use computers gave us gifts through Zankyou! I heard from friends of the family who called customer service for help on how to buy and they said it was fantastic! Among the various gift lists, Zankyou was the one that I received most gifts though (comparing monetary values), with nearly double the amount than the second of our three lists. With Zankyou, we have no need to exchange the gifts that we don't want, we can choose what we want later and without the pressure of having to choose what you will want to have on your dinner table for the rest of your life (for example), and most of the time, we have no idea if our table will have 4, 6, 8 or 10 places! Yes, our guests were pleased and in addition to the gift list, the site lets you to share your love story. We can show guests our life as a couple and thank friends and family! It was very practical and easy to navigate for most gentlemen too! A good friend of mine who got married around the same time used the site and was super happy with the results! She got pregnant in the middle of preparations and decided to create a gift list with Zankyou to furnish the baby's new room and ... everything sold out! I have already recommended and will continue recommending Zankyou.
Caroline and Larry Wedding on 07/10/2011
I found out about Zankyou through a simple Google search. I also found several reviews online from Cosmopolitan and other wedding sites, which recommended Zankyou. I was delighted that it has one of the lowest per transaction and transfer fees of all of the online lists and cash gifting sites. For this reason, and also the fact that I can create my own wedding blog/site free of charge, I decided to go with Zankyou. Your service is amazing and I love it!
Dominique and Javier Wedding on 05/11/2011
Zankyou has transformed my vision of what a boring, tacky wedding list would be. It has given us the chance to put our custom honeymoon experiences and moments on the list so people can contribute to our newlywed memories together. It has also taken away the horrible feeling of "asking for money" rather than receiving 3 of the same fondue pot. The multilingual features on the site made Zankyou unique in that all of our family members could visit the list and enjoy in their native languages. Thank you Zankyou!
Jennie and Julien Wedding on 09/04/2011
The main reasons for using Zankyou was because it has an French version and accepted pounds sterling (we had a French/English guest list) and we weren't tied to a particular company for our gift list. Unfortunately, we signed up quite late, but it was nice to have the 'thank you' email option for each person that gave a gift. We'd definitely recommend Zankyou because you can personalise your own profile and list. Also, it's a very efficient service and easy to use.
Constança and Marcos Wedding on 05/03/2011
We chose Zankyou because it was so easy to create an online wedding list with transfers to our bank account. Our Zankyou experience was very positive; it was really easy to edit the website and use all the different tools. All our questions were answered by the endless support of the customer service team. All the payments worked well, those made by the guests and then those made by Zankyou to us. The wedding list is great, the appearance of the photos were very elegant and everyone loved the webpage. Many of our guests thought the service was exceptional and highly advanced. We definitely will recommend Zankyou!
Helen and Lorenzo Wedding on 19/07/2009
It was a fantastic option to be able to create a completely personalised website in both Italian and English, and to be able to send messages to our guests through Zankyou! Zankyou let us include our wedding list online and provide all the useful instructions for our wedding to our guests, both in English and Italian. The comfort of being able to receive the money in our bank account instead of the same old presents, it's priceless!
Gianluca and Alessandra Wedding on 26/09/2015
We are really pleased with the service mainly because we were able to organise our wedding as we thought best, especially the honeymoon (which we've organised without an travel agency). It would have been very difficult to organise any other way... And then of course there's the fact that we could personalise everything, right down to the last detail, so we could give our family an insight our big day that was truly ours. Everyone who visited our web loved it. Having this webpage has allowed us to share information about the wedding and our wedding list with everyone, even those who live far away. That was the main reason for our using Zankyou, but we then found all the other very useful tools, including the guest list and table planner.
Maria Sperada and Alessandro Wedding on 03/07/2009
We got married a year ago, and did not want a traditional wedding list so we decided to use Zankyou. My husband's family and friends live far away from us so this kind of wedding list has made things easier for us. The ability to add any gift, to create a blog and provide directions to the wedding ceremony are great and very useful ideas. Also, the cash transfer process is great, we received the funds quickly.
Antonio and Claudia Wedding on 18/07/2009
What can we say? We are very happy with Zankyou, not just with the idea itself but also the complete effectiveness of the services and the team's availability, friendliness and professionalism. We'd do it another 100,000 times! Our guests were impressed, even the older generations of parents and grandparents. We mainly chose the online wedding list for convenience because of our situation: we live abroad, our families come from different cities, we have friends from all over. So where can you put the wedding list? We would have had to have open lists in at least four Italian cities, and that's without thinking about our friends from abroad. Also, we lived together, so we had furniture. The online wedding list was the ideal solution: on the one hand, we could choose what and where to buy the gifts, the guests didn't have to travel to a shop far away; instead, everyone could give us a gift directly from their homes. We were really happy with the idea and even the younger guests told us that they hadn't ever heard of anything like that, that we were ahead of them.
Elisa and Alessandro Wedding on 05/09/2009
We mainly chose Zankyou because of the wedding list, as we only wanted to organise the honeymoon without having to go to a travel agency. It was easy to divide the trip into different stages and decide later on about how we would use the amount received during our self-made honeymoon. It was the best option and our guests were impressed.
Alessio and Paola Wedding on 29/05/2010
We chose the online wedding list for different reasons, above all because we had different guests coming from other cities and from abroad, it was the simplest way to provide everyone with practical and detailed information and for them to buy gifts without having to go to a specific place. Furthermore, it gave us the option of buying the gifts when it suited us.
Maureen and Alessandro Wedding on 11/09/2010
Since we both work and are very busy, we decided that the traditional honeymoon was not for us. We opted for several small weekend getaways for the first few months after the wedding to keep the newlywed romance fresh. Zankyou has been very helpful. Through the site we have divided the gifts into 5 weekends away, adding hotel, restaurants, tours, dinners and so on for each trip. It was very simple and with a little imagination, Zankyou allows everyone to decide their own dream gifts. I had a lot of fun creating the wedding list!
Matteo and Raffaella Wedding on 28/05/2011
We chose Zankyou because we chose to have our wedding in another city and it was easier to manage the gifts from afar. Among other things, we had little time and we did not want a traditional wedding list, so we decided to make a list to renovate our house.
Carmen and Vito Wedding on 04/06/2011
We chose Zankyou because we have quite a few friends and family all over Italy, and wanted to share every step of the wedding. It helped us to tell our story, and introduce guests to one another. Organising the wedding list was very easy. I really liked being able to thank everyone with the "Say Thank You" feature!
Cyril and Elisabeth Wedding on 15/07/2010
We used our list for all kinds of gifts: the honeymoon, things for home etc. Our guests really liked our Zankyou page. The fact that the page is multilingual is a big advantage and as our wedding was multicultural, it was a great choice. Many friends and family who we hadn't seen for a long time left their messages on the page.
Bruno and Béatrice Wedding on 03/07/2010
We decided to use a third of our wedding list for our honeymoon. As we'd lived together before getting married, our house had everything it needed. On the wedding day, everything turned out very well. The driver turned up on time, the florist decorated things in time... After starting to sing a Brazilian song, Bruno had the rings in his pocket during the ceremony until they fell out of his pocket and bounced across the church floor! Everybody tells you "your wedding day goes by really quickly, you'll see" and we were sure our wedding will be different and we'd have time to enjoy everything. In the end, the wedding went by so quickly, we came back from the church, started dinner and then it was time for the first dance. In short, it all went by very quickly!
Vincent and Nathalie Wedding on 21/08/2010
For now, the money from our wedding list is in an account and it's not moving much! We're planning to buy an apartment in Caen soon. A story from our wedding day? Before going to the ceremony, it was so hot that I forget my pashmina for the church and half way there we had to turn around. I was about 15 minutes late for the ceremony and Vincent, who was waiting outside the church was starting to get a little worried... Our future projects? For now, we're looking for an apartment in Caen and after that, a honeymoon in the Maldives!
Alexis and Héloïse Wedding on 08/05/2010
We haven't touched our wedding list yet. But we can't wait until we can start decorating our new apartment. On our wedding day we chose to leave the church in a hot air baloon and go to the reception. After landing in the field the car had to pick us up. We had to wait more than half an hour, lost in the field without a mobile phone!!! Luckily, it all ended well and we joined our friends and family! Our plans for our first year of marrieed life are to find a bigger apartment and celebrate Alexis' 30th birthday!
Guillaume and Maylis Wedding on 17/06/2011
We're very satisfied since having chosen Zankyou for our wedding website - it's very easy to use and allows us to give all the necessary information to our guests in just a few clicks. The guests were able to find out all of the practical information about the big day, the hotel, transportation, etc. It was essential for us to also have an online wedding list. The flexibility and simplicity of Zankyou was essential in organising our wedding.
Fabienne and Simon Wedding on 13/08/2011
We chose Zankyou because it is a multilingual site, which allows our guests, whether British, American or French, to visit the site in their own language without us having to do the translating, and also allowing them to make contributions in different currencies. Our guests found Zankyou to be very useful, especially in terms of understanding the itinerary and locations without having to provide them with "Getting There" cards with the invitations. The guest list and photo album were the most useful elements for relations who we didn't know personally before the wedding.
Rafa Muñoz and Mary Blackwell Wedding on 11/07/2009
Great website for ideas. We used this website to post pictures of friends and family and to also use the gift list. This worked out very well because we didn't feel comfortable putting our bank details on the invitations and we had many people coming from all over the world so Zankyou provided the perfect resolution for us.
Fer and Mariana Wedding on 22/01/2011
We didn't want a traditional wedding list: the gifts would be another "suitcase" we'd have to carry. Giving an account number was another option. We did think about publishing the bank account on the page so that everyone could see it, but we decided against it for security reasons. In the end, the Zankyou wedding list was a great solution.
Our guests were fascinated with the page's system. "A very technological wedding," they told us. It's been very useful, as many of our guests don't live near where we got married, so we were able to provide them with details of hotels and the city that they were able to access at all times.
The page has also been useful in terms of publishing and publicising our wedding suppliers. I was able to bring together a group of people who made a real effort and I felt that giving them a little bit of publicity via the page was a good way of thanking them for their work.
Esther and Pablo Wedding on 06/08/2010
I'm Esther and my husband's name is Pablo. We got married on August 6, 2010 on an estate in the Madrid mountains. In our case, it didn't make sense to create a traditional wedding list to furnish a home. Zankyou allowed us to do just we needed: make a completely personalised wedding list. In addition, we have friends of different nationalities from all over the world. We needed a website that could be used by all our guests, Spanish and guests from other countries. Zankyou gave them the ability to access information in Spanish, English, French, German and other languages. Besides gifts, we could also include information on the location of the estate, bus schedules and recommended hotels.
Furthermore, the thing we valued most about Zankyou was their customer service before and after the wedding. Their accessibility, response, ability and desire to help and make things work right won us over completely. After comparing other sites in the online wedding list market, it was clear that Zankyou was one of the best decisions for planning our wedding. They made life easier (essential during the months leading up to the big day) and surpassed our expectations. Thanks to the whole team!

We chose Zankyou because we didn't want a traditional "homeware" list as, having lived together, we already had everything. So we chose gifts for our honeymoon, an original way for our guests to participate a little more in our wedding! We chose to create gifts made up of the most expensive things, such as flights and hotels, and also chose a range of more affordable gifts, such as dinners, tickets and transfers. This kind of things is quite new and it will still take some time for people to consider it as something normal, especially older guests, but the younger guests and those coming from abroad from countries like Brasil and the USA liked the idea. They loved the option of giving us the gift of tea in the Russian Tea Room in New York or a day at Disney World! Another strong point is the customer service - very efficient and attentive, always answering emails very quickly and very flexible in terms of our requests. Ten out of ten!

Since we're still in a long-distance relationship, and our guests are coming from Germany, Italy and Switzerland, Zankyou helped us get over these limitations and organise our wedding efficiently. Through Zankyou, our guests are always in the know and we can update everyone at the same time. We also got inspiration from the Zankyou online magazine. Without a doubt, we recommend Zankyou!

I was truly impressed when I discovered Zankyou, including the design and ease of use. One absolute advantage is the added value for the user not to mention the unique multi-language website. Our wedding is being held on the German border, since my roots are Italian. I thought it was just great to be able to have an international wedding.
Catharina and Nathaniel Wedding on 17/09/2010
We had the wedding of our dreams and are very grateful for this. Nathaniel is a military pilot and that's why we're always moving around, so we didn't want any more things to have to carry around when we were moving. That's why the Zankyou online wedding list is ideal, so that our guest could give us what we really needed. Many even helped us pay for the wedding, which was part of the list, and this was really important because we had a lot of guests.
But the main reason we chose Zankyou was the international element in terms of the wedding and our families, as there are some people living in Germany and others in the US. It was the best thing we could do to "connect" everyone. I wrote the info on the page in both languages, I chose the white and orange colours and included loads of photos so that I could tell everyone about our love stories. We also provided the guests with the guestbook, maps for getting to the wedding and of course, our wedding list. I could even add links for international airline ticket pages and a weather forecast app. It was a lot of fun!
