Wedding Gifts for a Second Marriage

If one or both parties in couple are getting married for a second time, you may not want to go with the traditional wedding gift. They've already gone through a wedding so items that are good for a first wedding, may not be as appreciated or as appropriate for a second marriage. Although the couple is sure to appreciate anything you get them, you don't want to send the wrong message with an inappropriate gift. But also remember that this marriage is no less important than their first one and its ok to celebrate their union in a big way. It's still a very joyous occasion, so live it up.


  • Most couples who are getting remarried aren't in need of household items, so you may want to stay away from housewarming gifts.
  • However, if you know the couple is need of something for their home such as wine glasses, then go for the household items. The key is not getting them something they already have.
  • Practical gifts, though, such as candles  or wedding photo album  are definitely appreciated.
  • Try and think about the couple's personalities or interests. Something they can use or do together.
  • Be sentimental. They are getting married and celebrating their love for each other, even if it is for the second time, so don't be afraid to go for romantic gift ideas.
  • Fun and light hearted gifts such as a digital camera  or camcorder always make great and useful gifts.
