I think these days with people marrying later and living away from home or together more before they marry it's less relevant but still useful.

Yeah, but also we dont trust our (older) relatives to exercise decent taste when choosing stuff for us - we could end up with some real nasty stuff if we arent careful.

I like the idea of guests being able to do stuff online - more chance of them making the effort then. Debenhams and JL in the lead so far then.
