I’d just give a check for $50.

I second the prior posters. Unless you know the person very well, going off registry is a huge gamble, and most people would be happier with the cash or gift card. If you don’t do that, get a gift receipt.

Won’t a set of flutes from Tiffany’s cost over $50? Not to sound ungrateful but I would prefer a $50 check as we already have a pair of champagne flutes.

bebero:  Of course it’s not wrong to buy off the registry.  The flutes sound like a lovely idea.

It’s not wrong, but I personally would appreciate a check more than two champagne flutes.  I don’t drink champagne.

It’s also iffy since you don’t really know the bride (or groom?).  It would make a lot more sense if this is something you truly believed, something you knew she would like.  Not something she seem the kind of girl it would be for.

At this point I’d give a gift card to wherever their registry is from. I wouldn’t personally want champagne flutes, which is why I didn’t register for them. I only wanted a set of them that all matched.

I would also give a cheque or a gift card to the store where they registered. If they wanted flutes they likely would have registered for them.

If the money is only an issue right now and you’ll be able to give more in a couple weeks, I’ve done that before.  But don’t do that if you’re going to forget.  

I second the PPs who say not to do the champagne flute idea.  We already received very nice champagne flutes from a guest (7 mos before the wedding).  I was scared that other guests might also get us flutes off-registry, so I added them to our registry and marked them as purchased.  The friend whose wedding you’re going to might not have had the time to do this- there’s a very good chance they already received a pair or more.

I’d appreciate Tiffany champagne flutes if I didn’t already own them. Also, its worth mentioning that the ones in that price range are only made from glass, personally speaking, I don’t like drinking champagne from glass and prefer crystal.

Its a nice thought but, if they registered and didn’t register for champagne flutes, they may have them already or don’t want them.
