    I think adding a few personal items is ok.  I wouldn’t get too carried away though.  Another idea since you already have the majority of the household needs is to create a honeymoon registry so that people can contribute to your honeymoon.

    We added like 2 or 3 blue rays we would like. I think it is okay if 1 or 2 items are movies/cd/books.  I wouldn’t go overboard.

    In moderation, I’d think it’s okay. Too many and you risk offending your guests. Of course, that’s all subject to who your guests are!

    I would say no. But I dont like registries in general…so maybe I’m biased.

    I’ve seen registries with beer, mountain dew, duct tape, and WD-40. I think a few books/CDs/DVDs is perfectly fine! I’ve even seen several with board games. Like PP have said, as long as it’s in moderation.

    Honestly, I would think it was odd if I saw books/CDs on a registry. Of course, I’ve never been to a wedding with a honeymoon registry so maybe my crowd is more traditional.

    Personally, I’d keep the books, cds, and games to a minimum. Cook books or books about marriage or communication are totally fine. If you entertain, board games or dinner music would be appropriate too. I’m not sure I’d but a Stephen King bestseller or Rihanna’s new album on a wedding registry though…
