    I personally think it would be weird to have on the registry, but not necessarily as a wedding gift. FSIL and her husband got a bed frame & matress set from one of their wealthier aunts. So maybe your parents or his parents could drop hints to those that you think would be able to afford such an item, instead of putting it on the registry.

    I’ve seen one registry with a bed (and a very pricey one at that). I think it depends. If it’s an affordable bed that’s comparable to the price of a Kitchenaid mixer or a set of Le Creuset, then I think it’s fine (though unusual). However, if it’s several thousand dollars and your guests aren’t exactly baller/spending the Gs type people, then I don’t see the point of putting it on there. In other words, if it’s going to take like 10 guests to chip in on it at a couple hundred dollar each, then I wouldn’t do it.

    FI and I currently have twins, we were going to put the word out that we’d use money for new bedroom furniture including a new bed, but not register for one specifically.

    I think it’s fine. People will either buy it or they won’t, but as long as there are other options on the registry, it’ll be fine.

    Also, I’ve heard that some registries will let you buy any items that weren’t purchased by wedding guests at a discount, so if you put the bed on there and no one buys it, you may still be able to get it for 10% off or something! 🙂

    I think it`s fine.  You might get some money or GCs that specify they are meant to go towards it.  Also, you might get a discount for having it on the registry.

    Completion discount, or group gift.  It makes complete sense to me 🙂

    I wouldn’t put it on my own registry, but as a guest, I wouldn’t think anything of it I saw it on someone else’s. I wouldn’t buy it, (well, maybe if I could afford it and was REALLY close with the couple) but I wouldn’t have a problem contributing cash/gift card to go towards it!

    We’ve considered it because we are always grumbling about how we need a bigger bed.  We certainly don’t need another crock pot or pot set (we’ve lived together for 3 years).

    I would put it on there, especially if the store offers a completion discount. Who knows, a group may get together to purchase it for you, and if not, you still get a percentage off.
