    You can always just do a very small simple registry at one store. 

    Maybe suggest having like a recipe shower were everyone brings a recipe instead of a gift?

    My cousin had showers for her second marriage but 3rd wedding.  The one shower was thrown by his family and friends which I get why they’d want to do something since it was his first wedding.  The 2nd shower was thrown by our mom’s friends and they did it at a resturant and everyone paid for their own food/drinks except they covered the bride’s meal for the night.  So it was nice because no one had to spend a lot of time or money on shower food/decorations.

    I think that both a shower and registering are perfectly okay because this is the first time that you and your fiance are getting married.  (If you were remarrying an ex, it might be a different story.)  I’d request a simple shower–I think both of the ideas above are wonderful.

    Don’t go overboard with the registry–only register for the things that you need or want.  (i.e. don’t get china just because it’s on the checklist at a store.)

     

    ETA: That’s the same registry advice I give EVERYONE, I get frustrated when I see people registered for way more than they could ever get from their wedding guests…  It has nothing to do with a second wedding here!

    I definitely think that both registering and having showers are perfectly acceptable for a 2nd wedding – enjoy!
