good question!!! i say why not, but i’m sure others will have opinions. i would personally not do anything furniture-related, but nothing wrong with candles, vases, etc. especially because they can be cheaper items that people will be happy to buy 🙂 and they’re PRETTY gifts, not just knife sets etc lol (although my FI thinks knife sets are super pretty lol)

  I would say go for it! DH and I included some decor items on our registry. His cousin said she actually loves it when people include those things, because they are fun to buy :-). I also agree with the PP…they can also make for some good inexpensive options as well. I think you’re all right on this one :-).

@MissKit:  eh, totally fine. we registered for a lot of that stuff, because we dont anticipate being able to afford it for a while, but our place looks like a prison right now. :p

I’d be happy to buy someone candle holders or vases or picture frames. Those are nice, pretty standard kinds of “keepsake” wedding gifts. I’m not sure I personally would buy someone curtains. I don’t have anything against it, but it’s just not the most exciting gift, you know? And I’ve seen people put small, accent kinds of furniture on their registries. Not sure if anyone bought it for them, but I’ve seen it.

Put it on there!  You never know who might actually get it for you… 🙂  My cousin put a $1000 TV on their registry, haha.  I think bar stools are fine.  I’ve never seen a registry that didn’t have home decor on it.  I have actually bought some of those items before.  I think they’re fun!

@MissKit:  I’d buy a stool, bar stool or otherwise. Put it on there and then cross your fingers! People want to help you outfit your home!

I’ve seen people register for furniture before but I’ve never seen it actually purchased as a gift.  But you never know when some family members decide to pitch in on a big gift.  I love the idea of registering for some classic decor pieces like vases, candlesticks, and decorative bowls.

We have a ton of frames on ours, some vases/candleholders, bedding, etc. Most people I know registered for stuff like that.
