Is it okay to register for my wedding if this is my second wedding? Will it be okay to set up a bridal registry?
Yes, it is okay, if you need household items. Unfortunately, most people feel that it is not etiquette to register if this is a bride’s second wedding; however, this is not true. The reason a bride and/or couple register in the first place is so they may receive gifts that will help them establish their home. These items may be pots & pans, an iron, linens, toaster, towels, etc.
I always suggest that you may not necessarily want to register for household items for a second wedding but instead register for a honeymoon or other household items that you and your fiancé do not have and keep it to a minimal. Some second wedding brides prefer money; if you would rather receive money then I would suggest that you do not register at all and have your wedding party, friends, and family spread the word that the couple would rather receive cash gifts.
Remember, this is your day and completely your choice if you want to register for gifts or not!! Don’t forget the thank you cards!
