At Zankyou you get the full cash equivalent in your bank account, with no extra charges, fees or costs.

So, if the end result is the same, whether you use Zankyou or just provide your guests with an account number, Why should you use Zankyou?

In order to answer this question, we should first answer another. Why do our guests give us presents?

At Zankyou we believe that, unfortunately, wedding presents today are becoming a meaningless exercise. It’s just about paying for an invitation. While this is a great help for the bride and groom, the wedding becomes a mere celebration and loses its symbolic meaning as the beginning of a new stage in the couple’s relationship. In other words, the wedding becomes a trade agreement and the present becomes an operation between bride and groom and their guests.

For us, what really makes a wedding meaningful is the idea of being able to help the couple in their new adventure. The nice thing about giving a present is that your guests are making a specific contribution to a couple’s projects and dreams – a trip, furniture for their new house, a charitable project, etc.

At Zankyou we’ve created a wedding list that fits into this line of thinking and quite clearly allows the happy couple to use some or all of the contributions made in Zankyou for paying for the wedding.

At the same time, we don’t share the same concept as traditional wedding lists where the bride and groom have to buy objects and/or services. It seems to us that many couples don’t need any more objects and that forcing them to consume is not really the most sustainable option.
