My 2nd marriage, his 1st - wedding gifts?

Recommended Posts

I would think that people will still want to give you gifts, especially if they can't make it, or if you have a shower. I would register at one place for stuff that you want, like new bedding or candles, decorations. I have heard a lot of people doing that. Also you could do something different and do the honeymoon registry, a pampered chef registry, registry through your photog. for gift certificates (my cousin did this and it worked great), I have also heard of people doing a registry for non-profit organizations.

 

I know I would want to get you something to celebrate your marriage! And you don't want it to be something you don't want/need.

 

Good Luck!

Thnks Annette,
Thats a good idea. I think from what everyone else has said, if someone is wanting to get us something, they will regardless of what we say, so we might as well register somewhere to avoid all the awkward questions of what we want. Word of mouth that we have a registry of some kind.
THanks for everyone's input.
I feel better now. I didnt want to insult someone by not taking their gift, but I also didnt want to insult anyone and make them think they had to do something. When that is not our intention by any means.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
