I am an encore bride so I didn’t have a bridal shower or any sort of pre-wedding parties. I sometimes wish I did have something, but it is so hard with my future SIL and family living all over North America. I have close GFs here and a few have been taking me out but this is on a very small scale.
Fiance and I started a biz together a year and a half ago, and the other thing is people think we have a tonne of money so don’t need much. If you have read some of my other posts, this is simply not true-first 3-5 years are tough, especially with the crapola I have been facing with Fiance.
However, all this aside, I was logging in to check our registry and there were a tonne of gifts purchased already including gift certificates purchased for us to go on a honeymoon to PARIS…after all the drama with my fiance’s finances I didn’t think it would be possible for us to go on a honeymoon so I used a wedding registry at the Bay and also a honeymoon registry, and everyone has been buying certificates for us (as word is getting around we haven’t booked our honeymoon yet) 🙂
One of the things Fiance and both have a love for are reallllly nice glasses. We love to have a good glass of wine or sip of scotch together and when we registered at the Bay, we did put on Reidel stemware (chard and red) so we could have some realllly nice wine glasses.
I literally squealed out loud and started babbling like a 3 year old when I found out that someone had purchased the Reidel stemware for our wedding gift. It was one of those things we thought for sure noone would buy, and I can guess who probably bought it for us (as we have a few wine afficiondos is our group) but NOW I am gettting really excited–seeing the gift registry list going down is the first external trigger besides all my wedding planning that is making this wedding seem more and more real! 🙂
Anyway, just thought Id share and also ask if there is one thing on your registry that you are REALLLLLY hoping to have? and ps-I hope you get it 🙂
