We have already set up a gift registry but I'm wondering about other second wedding couples. Fiancee's has not been married before. My first wedding was when I was in my twenties. We were married 13 years. When we split, we divided up some of the appliances and dishes (we each have four place settings of a Martha Stewart set we got along the way). We gave his mom the china and crystal since she wanted it and his aunts bought most of it for us anyway.
This time around, we registered for a good amount of things but not everything. Some essentials need refreshing. My four cup single girl coffee maker was in need of replacement. His aunt likes to give Le Creuset so we registered for a dutch oven to replace the Martha Stewart one my ex gave me for Christmas several years back. I'd love a really good set of silicon spatulas.
We've included some fun things. Camping and picnic gear. Bicycles. Barware.
I have had more than a few people ask where we are registered so I feel like it's a useful thing for our friends who want to send us some joy. And, it's really fun to make a "shopping" list.
Did you register? What's on your list this time around?
