i guess it depends on how long after the wedding your reception is.  i personally wouldnt bring a gift if i a)wasnt invited to the actual wedding and b)the reception took place a significant amount of time after the wedding.

but as long as you are having a reception, i dont see why you cant register.

i think if you’re having a party or reception, you can register for that. you just can’t EXPECT people to get you gifts. so as long as you don’t mention it on your invitations, and just let it spread by word of mouth to only those that are invited, you should be fine.

@lovelydiamond:My friend did this. What she did was get married in a private ceremony in her parents home. Then she had the reception for all of her friends and family and then right before the ceremony started, they had a quick blessing and basically repeated their vows. Are you going to send out invites?

you can register, but pp is right, don’t EXPECT gifts.
