My 2nd marriage, his 1st - wedding gifts?
Posted 18 September 2009 - 12:31 PM
So my question is what to do about wedding gifts? I was married in 1999 and separated in 2007 and divorced in 2008.
Its just weird for me bc alot of the people that were at my first wedding in 1999 will be at my now second wedding. Its not their fault I ended my first marriage so I feel kinda wierd accepting gifts for my second wedding. Its like I shafted them or something?!
Am I making this out to be more then it is? Would you be thinking this is you were invited to a second wedding?

I think you can handle it any way you would like but I feel better about just having people come to Mexico. I really don't need the gifts.

The advise that we were given was this:
Just because you were married before doesn't matter. This is a new relationship. Everything that was done for the first weddings can be done for this one.. because you both are making a new commitment together.
This doesn't make it any easier to want to register or to accept gifts but I was told or asked to just put it out there, if anyone wants to give a gift it is admittedly up to them.
My FI and I are not interested in the gifts. We are just grateful that we have the support from our family and friends who are attending!

I just hope everyone goes with just being there is their gift to us.

Now I do have an idea that there is a Wedding Quilt being made for us and the people going to our wedding and contributing... That is a different kind of gift that I am very thrilled about. my 2cents

My question is this: do you not say anything about gifts, hope people don't spend their time and money getting you things, or is there a proper way to let people know this? I've seen that it's considered tacky to put ANYTHING, either way, about gifts on the invitations so how do you tell people that they don't need to buy you anything?
