The Wedding Shop




Jodie Smith @ Papier

The Wedding Shop has been helping matrimony-bound couples with their wedding gift lists since 1990. From their showrooms in Chelsea, Selfridges and beyond to their elegant website, their team understand how to curate a selection of gifts that couples love and their guests will love to give.

We asked them for their edit of the top 10 most stylish gifts for 2018. As they say, "a wedding list is the perfect opportunity to update and upgrade your home essentials. So it’s time to retire the leaking kettle, swap out those Ikea plates you’ve had since university, and invest in quality items that were built to last."

Kahler Ceramic Pink Vase, £44.50
Kahler is a Danish brand with roots in traditional craftsmanship with modern design – and we are in love with their pastel pink vase. As baby pink is this season’s hottest colour, objects and vases are a fab way to update your home interior with the latest trend without investing big.

A statement lamp can transform a room and really enhance the mood of your home. This lamp has it all going on, and will make the ultimate style statement.

Photo frames have always been a traditional wedding present. We love this one with a modern twist – the perfect place to house your wedding pics.

Another iconic gift – the Kitchen Aid truly stands the test of time, and is a gift you will still be using for decades to come. None look better than this super cool, matte-black version.

The House Drinks Trolley, £285
The bar cart or drinks trolley is making a retro comeback. They make really cool side tables and are perfect for that impromptu Friday night cocktail party.

LSA Aurelia Champagne Saucers, £50
Now champagne flutes or saucers should be on everyone’s gift list! You have so much to celebrate, so what better excuse to upgrade your Ikea glassware and get something truly stylish to drink from? We love these LSA Aurelia Champagne saucers as they have a slight retro feel to them.

Iittala Issey Miyake Dinnerware Collection, from £23.50
Dinnerware doesn’t have to be formal. We love this quirky shape plate set from Iittala, again in the adorable baby pink. Have fun with you dinnerware: mix and match shapes patterns and textures so that your table never looks the same twice!

Andrew Martin Plume Cushion, £69
Fun, quirky, colourful cushions can transform a tired old sofa and give it a new lease of life. (Also much cheaper than buying a new sofa!) We are currently loving this Andrew Martin plume cushion because it's so versatile and works with so many different colourways.
