    @daughterdearest:  I included a picture frame (well mulitple really). For one reason FI and I already have an established household. We have plenty of typical things you put on a registry, but we’re actually quite lacking in household decorations. Our house might be FURNISHED but it is far from decorated… so we have a lot of “decor” things. We’re not really advertising our registry though. I guess we’re not being very traditional when it comes to the registry. We don’t really need a heck of a lot. Plus, FI and I can buy basically anything we need or want so we feel bad asking guests for it.

    similar to wbg21, hubs and i already lived together so we really didn’t need anything “start our life” or whatever the tradition is. so we added splurges like a vera wang picture frame that now holds our favorite pic from the wedding or new sheets because we had been wanting to change things up for a few years now.

    We just did it because it was a cute frame and added some variety to our registry. I doubt you’re missing out on some big secret! It’s just whether or not you hit it with the scanner gun :).

    I opened this thinking WTF do people frame their registries? lol  I’m a little out of it today.

    I think we did, but we didn’t recieve it.  You can pick it up and get the discount.

    we didn’t include frames.  I had the same thought as you that I could just go and buy a frame myself.  What we wanted was nice kitchen stuff so tha was the focus of our registry.

    We had a couple.  We already lived together and had a lot of stuff, so our registry was focused on things we really wanted to upgrade and alternatively, things that were physically small.

    @AB Bride:  LOL! Coming Soon to Pinterest…

    OP, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. It’s something for the home the two of you will have, so I don’t think anyone would have a problem if you did or didn’t want to. If you get duplicates of something, or something you already have or won’t use, you can always exchange for frames later if you change your mind and decide you want them.

    It all depends on what is important to you. I put a Kate Spade frame set on my Macy’s Registry that came with a cake serving set and toasting flutes. I consider it to be one of the best gifts that I have gotten because it is a good reminder of our wedding and something I will cherish for awhile.

    I put a few expensive ones that matched my toasting flutes, etc. Frames aren’t something I’d spend a lot of money on myself but they’re a good price point most of the time for a shower gift, etc.

    I haven’t made my registry yet, but I would like to include some frames since we have a lot of the regular registry items (i.e. sheets, towels, kitchen stuff).  Plus I find frames are something that to get good quality ones is expensive and they are one of those things I would never spend money on myself.  I guess it depends if it’s something you want/need.

    I included frames because I needed some cheap(er) options. I found some cute ones that I could use around the house.

    There’s no rule that says you have to include a picture frame on your registry.  But there’s definitely nothing wrong with it.  That’s actually what we chose to buy for our friends who recently got married!  😉

    Some people put them on there so that they don’t end up with 5 they don’t want, as lots of people go off registery and buy picture frames.

    A few that I have seen on registeries were wicked expensive, like $80 expensive, so they definitely fell into wedding gift territory and not usually something you’d buy yourself.

    I added the frames that match our toasting flutes and cake set (Darling Point) because I’m not going to spend that much on them, but I think it would be nice to be able to frame a wedding picture in the matching frame. We haven’t received any yet, and we may not at all, but we could pick it up with the completion discount later if we want. I also added one of the bifold frames that you can display an invitation and a wedding photo in. I’m a photo nerd and a sentimental nut though.
