Real Love Stories. Our clients tell us about their wedding and Zankyou experience.
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 incorporating 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 life 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 during their weddings. My girlfriend 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 back to me on my next step. I love that I'm dealing with real people each time. I would definitely recommend Zankyou to every new bride I know.Try it for free! | View our demos
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 give accurate answers. I am definitely recommending Zankyou to my friends that are getting married in 2012 :)Try it for free! | View our demos
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 has a great user interface 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 the user interface has a clean design. I would absolutely recommend Zankyou to a friend.Try it for free! | View our demos
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. Additionly, rapid transfers and the first one 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, accommodations, etc. ... And the guests really enjoyed this interface 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
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, 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 guests 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 immediately being able to mingle with our guests.Try it for free! | View our demos
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 this platform. The option of being able to upload photos and customize the look of each site is great because it will give the appearance that the wedding starts from the creation of this site.Try it for free! | View our demos
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 consult it regularly!Try it for free! | View our demos
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 left us much greater freedom in the choice of our purchases as opposed to the traditional list. It was also possible to make a website, which was simple and easy.Try it for free! | View our demos
We decided to use Zankyou not only for the online wedding list, accessible to guests from various parts of the country, 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 personalize 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 recommend it!Try it for free! | View our demos
A Zankyou wedding website is the perfect tool to help you organize a wedding, as well as an interesting and distinguishing accent for our wedding. We shared our Zankyou information 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 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.Try it for free! | View our demos
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, our home was already equipped. 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
Zankyou came to us as the perfect opportunity to make a personalized 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 customizable wishlists, Zankyou allowed us to offer guests all the detailed information about the wedding, establishing a single communication platform between the couple and the guests. This was just what we needed! And so we created our own list of gifts accessible to guests. It was very practical and we made contact whenever it was necessary with the guests through the messaging system, which is very useful. Everything worked perfectly and we strongly recommend Zankyou.Try it for free! | View our demos
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 have to personalize 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 registry for the baby we were expecting :D. A big heartfelt thanks to Zankyou.Try it for free! | View our demos
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 selected for them. Zankyou also allowed our guests to follow our civil wedding, which was held two months before the big party, through photos. Best of all, Zankyou allowed us to create a wedding list to suit our taste.We just selected our very own gifts (sofa, dining table, etc). The site also allows you to customize all sections to your desires. 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 (the words of guests!)Try it for free! | View our demos
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.Try it for free! | View our demos
We chose Zankyou for our wedding list and we are very happy. We have included some classic and some more modern type "experiences" such as a dinner at our favorite restaurant or tango lessons. A lot of people congratulated us for our choice. I would do it again without hesitation because it allowed us to enjoy many things we wanted to do.Try it for free! | View our demos
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 occurred while I was receiving my gifts. I needed to re-adjust the navigation, 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
The first reason for choosing this type of tool 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 values in our own Brazilian currency or British pounds, no need to pay a fee for opening the site (which most charge) and the lowest percentage of the transaction charged on gifts bought. 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 beyond 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 are not so used to shopping online and those who don't use computers made purchases. 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 registries, Zankyou was the one with the most received gifts (comparing monetary values), with nearly double the amount than the second of our three lists. With Zankyou, we have no need to exchange, 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 enables you to share your love story. We can show guests life as a couple, honor friends and family and receive many messages of affection! 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 list of Zankyou to furnish the baby´s closet and ... sold out her list! I have already recommended and will continue recommending Zankyou.Try it for free! | View our demos
I found out about Zankyou using Google search. I also found several reviews online from Cosmopolitan and other wedding sites, which recommended Zankyou. I was happy to discover 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
Zankyou has transformed my vision of what a boring, tacky wedding list would be. It has given us the opportunity 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
The main reasons for using Zankyou was because it has an English interface and accepted pounds sterling (we had a French/English guest list) and we weren’t tied to a particular chain of establishments/companies. Unfortunately, we signed up quite late, but it was nice to have the 'thank you' email option for each contributor. 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.Try it for free! | View our demos
We chose Zankyou both for the ease with which we could create an online wedding list with transfers to our regular account. Our Zankyou experience was very positive; it was really easy to access the menus and use the different tools. All our questions were answered by the endless support of the customer service team. All the payments work well, those made by the guests and then those made by Zankyou to us. The wedding list is very intuitive, the appearance of the photos is very elegant and everyone loved the webpage. Many of our guests thought the service was exceptional and highly advanced.

It was a fantastic option to be able to create a completely personalised blog in both Italian and English, and to send the messages with our wedding itinerary in real time! 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
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.Try it for free! | View our demos
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.Try it for free! | View our demos
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.Try it for free! | View our demos
We chose the online wedding list for different reasons, above all because we had different guests coming from other cities and 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.Try it for free! | View our demos
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 during the first months of the wedding to unwind from the daily routine keep the newlywed romance fresh. Zankyou has been very helpful. Through the site we have divided the gifts in 5 weekends, 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. In Italy, traditional wedding registries are set up as travel installments, and very few sites, whether traditional or online, offer the possibility of linking each gift to a specific person. I had a lot of fun creating the wedding list!Try it for free! | View our demos
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!Try it for free! | View our demos
We used our list for all kinds of gifts: the honeymoon, things for home...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.Try it for free! | View our demos
We decided to use a third of our wedding list for our honeymoon. As we'd lived together before getting married, our house has lots of things. 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
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 religious 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
We haven't touched our wedding list yet. But we can't wait until we can start preparing 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 - what a fright! Luckily, it all ended well and we joined our friends and family! Our projects for our first year of matrimony are to find a bigger apartment and celebrate Alexis' 30th birthday!Try it for free! | View our demos
We're very satisfied with 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 were essential in organising our wedding.Try it for free! | View our demos
We chose Zankyou because it is a multilingual site, which allows our guests, whether British, American or French, to browse sections in their own languages 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.Try it for free! | View our demos
Great website for ideas. We used this website to post pictures of friends and family as well as use their gift option. 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 intermediary for us.Try it for free! | View our demos
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.Try it for free! | View our demos
I'm Esther and my husband's name is Pablo. We were 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 foreign. 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, which covered our special needs. 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!Try it for free! | View our demos
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 in Spain, 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 and congratulated us for it. 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.

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!Try it for free! | View our demos
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.

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 during our moves. 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 our wedding list. I could even add links for international airline ticket pages and a weather forecast app. It was a lot of fun!Try it for free! | View our demos
