It’s official- my fiance and I are insane. On top of planning (and paying for!) our wedding, we just had an offer accepted on our dream house yesterday and will soon become home owners!
My question is- now that I have a house to decorate, are there limitations on what we can register for? Obviously we won’t be registering for a new bed, kitchen table.. but what about a small table or lamp? Are home furnishings acceptable to register for?
Let me know your thoughts ladies! ^_^ Thanks

Dooooo it! The worst thing that can happen is no one will buy them.. you can still get completion discounts for them!
Anyway, I think lighting and small home furnishings are not even unusual to register for. 🙂

I think it’s perfectly fine to register for those things. Your friends and family will probably love buying you these things for your new home and will enjoy coming over and seeing how you have decorated with them.

I am hoping that my FI and I will finally be in a house by the time we get married and I will definitely be registering for homegoods of all kinds to get the place looking great!

We registered for lamps, but DH wouldn’t agree to a chair b/c it was too expensive.

Congrats on becoming a home owner!! And ditto to what spaniel: said – if no one buys it, you can get it yourself with a discount!

I think it is fine. We put all sorts of things on our registry. I have a large mirror, curtains, curtain rods, picture frames, etc. on my registry. We need all of that stuff so we registered for it.
@spaniel: I agree!

Register for whatever you want – people can buy it or not!

I really don’t see a difference between registering for small appliances and small furnishings. In fact, I’m guessing some of the items (i.e. lamps) cost less than the kitchenaid stand mixer that graces so many registries. Go for it!
FYI – We registered for two lamps and received both of them!

You can register for anything you want. Plus, a lot of places gives you a discount after the wedding on the items still on your list. So we will be putting things on it that we know people aren’t going to get us (TV, large applicances, ect) and then cashing in on the discount in the end. As long as you have a healthy range of prices, people shouldn’t care what’s on registries.
