My fiance and I have been together for 7 years and have 3 children together. You may say we kinda did it backwards. Well..we were wondering if we should register for gifts or if that would be kinda tacky cuz we are not a new couple starting from scratch. We have already made a home together and such and it is my understanding that that is what the gifts are suppose to be about..helping a new couple get started. Should we just not register and hope for the best or should we still register(there are things we could use around the house) to make it easy on guest. I am really stumped here and I could really use and would appreciate any views. Thanks!

I think that people are still going to want to give you gifts for getting married and if you don’t register, you might end up getting things that you don’t want or need.

Definitely register. They will want to get you something.
You may consider an alternative registry like ‘honeymoon’ ….or wine: I went to a wedding of people for their second marriages and they said something like don’t have to bring a gift, but if you would like to we would love something for our wine cellar.

I would definitely put together a registry. Maybe upgrade on a few things for your kitchen or new sheets and towels. Assuming that most of your guests know your situation they may be more prone to giving cash or gift cards anyway.
We were really pleased with our honeymoon registry too, although I know that some people don’t feel comfortable with them. Definitely another option to consider though!

Register! Do what you want and don’t worry about what people think. People will always want to get you something and I’m sure they could use the help by looking at a registry.
