You should set up a honeyfund.  I think it’s typically thought of for the honeymoon but you could put anything on there.  You would list the couch and then say you need 10 of item at $25 increments.  It gives people the impression that they are buying a gift (which lots of people like) but it just deposits cash into your paypal account.

@cllyons:It was actually really easy to do just by following the directions on the site.  They show you an example.

A couch is a “big ticket” item, but it wouldn’t be too crazy to put a couch on the registry, would it? Worst case scenario, no one buys it for you. Best case scenario, ten people go in together and get you a goshdarn couch!

I think your “word of mouth” plan is a good idea. That way, you’re not “offending” anyone by putting it on your invites/registry, but those closest to you (who want to get you what you actually want) will have that option. You’d be surprised with your closest guests…they might just go in together to buy you a couch! LOL

I don’t know about local furniture stores there but where we used to live, some of them had registries that people could donate to.

http://www.depositagift.com is a great registry that you can use for anything from a coffee maker to multiple people helping you get furniture or even a down payment on a house! It’s an easy to use site and you can add your story and personal info to the site. It’s working great for us!

 I recently signed up for a Wish registry at UponOurStar.com. Instead of asking for cash, we were able to ask for our most meaningful wishes to be granted — we asked for things we need in our dream home (this fixer upper won’t fix itself!!) and even a few fun things like fancy restaurants and a couple fun honeymoon excursions! We received rave reviews from friends who say they love the idea of giving meaningful gifts instead of just *stuff* they know we probably don’t need …. and we really love the fact that we get cash in our bank account without being blatant about it!

 

I highly recommend looking into the “other” registry, it sounds like it might fit for your situation!
