    I guess I don’t see why not.  Do most of the guests know you are “already married”?  Are you going on a honeymoon?  If so, what if you registered at htt://www.honeyfund.com like Mrs. Cowboy Boots did! 🙂  That sounds fun!

    I think it’s OK, but you may want to keep the registry smaller than you would normally. I only think this because I am assuming that you got some gifts when you married three years ago?

    I am personally not a fan of honeymoon registery, home mortgage registries etc etc

    So it’s more like a vow renewal in a church as opposed to a wedding right? Or are you married by common law and therefore actually having a big celebration for the first time? I say do a registry if you want one.

    I’ve heard good things abour honeyfund.  Also, if you guys did not have anything before like an actual wedding or celebration then I do not see anything wrong with registering for gifts.

    I say yes, but like a PP said, keep it small.  Since there’s not much you need, just keep it to one or two stores and make sure to have all price points available.  Good luck with your planning!

    I don’t really think there are any rules about this.  I would do one.  Small and upgrade what you have!

    I would do one. People will want to give you gifts to help you celebrate whether you register or not.

    Go for it.  As pinkmonkee said, people will give you gifts anyway – might as well make them what you actually want/need!

    There will be some people who will expect you to register.  I feel awkward about registering not because we are technically “married” but because my fiance and I have been living together for a couple of years…. and obviously functioning just fine without a nice set of dishes from BBB… but we are still going to register because “that’s what you do” and of course we want nice stuff for entertaining. We will probably just avoid huge ticket items and register for a smaller amount of stuff so people have the option if they like to purchase from registries but I won’t feel too “greedy”. You might want to do something similar. 

    Congrats and have fun registering!!

    I think registering at Target for smaller, practical gifts would be very nice. I love buying things off of registries, and I love to give gifts, so if I were your friend I would want you to.
