Is a Gift Appropriate for a Second Wedding?

Question: Is a Gift Appropriate for a Second Wedding?
Answer:

If the bride or groom has been married before, you don’t have to give them a gift. However it is still a nice thing to do, whether or not you attend their wedding. A gift is a celebration and shows that you are thinking of them on their special day. However, the type of gift may be different from something you would give to a couple who has never been married before.

Find out if the couple has registered at a store and choose something from the registry. If they haven’t, consider a gift card to their favorite restaurant or event you know they will both enjoy. Some couples may have everything they need and request a contribution to a charity or special cause.
