Is it ok for the bride to be that has been with the husband to be for over 8 years and lived together for that long as well to registory for gifts? We are unsure of this answer and don’t know where to look. Please help. thanks the Maid of Honnor.

Yes, you are allowed to register. You might not have as many of the traditional things to register for since you have a home already but you can upgrade things or get things that you have always wanted but couldn’t afford.

Absolutely! We’ve been together for almost 7 years, we’ve lived together for almost 6. We’re registering for all new kitchen stuff and lots of fun hostess-y stuff. The things we have in our kitchen are old, from like 5 years ago so there’s no reason why we can’t ask for some help getting replacements. You’d probably do yourself a dis-service if you don’t register because people will buy you gifts anyway and if they don’t have a registry to go off of, they’ll use their own imaginations. It could get ugly! Lol. I say go for it 🙂

yes!! we are in the same boat, but since we have lived together for so long and have everything we need for our house we are doing a honeymoon registry, which might be a good option too!

i see no problem with it! we’ll be together for 6 years and living together for 5 when we get married. we have never really had the money to buy ourselves nice dishes and silverware among other things, so we’re asking for them. we still only have 4 sets of plates that my fiance’s mom bought him when he moved into his apartment 6 years ago! you can imagine how much it sucks when we have guests over for dinner, we end up using paper plates.

Definitely! We’re a mid-30’s couple and we’ve been on our own since graduating from college so I obviously already have all the basic stuff that we need. But that’s not going to stop us from registering for new things – and upgrades – for the wedding. People want to buy gifts for showers, the wedding, etc. and without a registry, you’re just going to get stuff you don’t want/need. As a guest at other weddings and showers, I honestly want/like a registry to guide me during gift-purchasing!! Just be sure to register for stuff at every price point from $20 on up, as it’s respectful of the gift-givers’ budgets (esp in this economy).
