Wedding gifts: focus on decoration
Gifts are an important phase of the wedding, as they symbolically represent a thought of appreciation and good wishes from the guests: the practice of making a wedding list was first established in 1924 in Chicago by the founders of the Marshall Field department store. In Italy, the use of the wedding list came into use in the 1970s: gradually, it began to be seen as a practical solution for the benefit of the couple. Since then, wedding lists have changed a lot: from trousseau, to travel, to designer furniture and furnishings.
