Southern Charm: Can I register for gifts if it’s my second wedding?


Southern Charm No. 21


You have found the new love of your life and it is time to plan your Encore Wedding. You’ve already done the numerous showers and huge registries the first time around, and wanting to know if it is appropriate to register for your 2nd Big Day?! The answer is a short and simple – YES!

Even though this may be the 2nd marriage for you two – this is still a new beginning you are celebrating, and it’s absolutely appropriate for your guests to help you do so with a gift. At the same time, guests have every right to stick to the one wedding gift “rule” if they already purchased you a great gift for the first affair.

We suggest keeping this registry small and reasonable with just the items you are missing and would love to have. Or maybe even just do a Honeymoon registry this time around.

If you do receive a gift – accept every present graciously’ and if anyone declined to give you one – in the words of Elsa from Frozen, let it go.
