This is the second marriage for me and fiancee. We are just going to the courthouse but afterwards will be having a get together at our friends bar who has a private/event room in the upstairs loft. What should we do in regards to expecting or not expecting gifts? We don’t want to make anyone feel like they must bring a gift but a lot of my friends will probably want to bring a little sentiment… so I was thinking registration as a back-up ???

Are you hosting the get together (as in food and drinks)?
I think if you are hosting the party then there is no harm in doing a registry in case anyone enquires about a gift. A courthouse wedding is just a type of private ceremony so I see no problem with a registry.

I think it is fine to register 🙂

I agree. It’s fine to register for gifts. However, just do not make mention of your registry in your invitation suite. (If you’re having a wedding website, however, it is acceptable to provide links to your registries there, as long as they are not in a very prominant location.)

Perfect!! Thanks so much for reassuring me of this..We plan on hosting and providing food and drinks.. We ofcourse will not ask or bring up unless asked but it is nice to know we do have a registry for those who may inquire.
