My friends registered for matching psychedelic ipod covers, but given their personalities and likes it totally made sense.

Multiple decorative (perhaps functional) silver bowls ranging from $450-$600 and candle sticks that were over $300 each.    


Yea…get over yourself.   It totally turned me off.

I had a friend register for a Wii a few years ago, I thought it was silly until I learned a lot of places give you % off of unbought registry items! We registered for an expensive juicer ($100 is expensive to me) and a kitchen aid mixer so that we could get a discount if no one buys it. I’m sure that sort of makes me a bad person but oh well.

My cousin asked for a couple of board games. Nothing wrong with that, I just thought it was kind of…odd, if you will, to see on a wedding registry. She and her now-husband also registered for a Bissel Spot Pet Cleaner, and it was around $300. I suppose that may not seem over-priced depending on where you live, maybe, but to me it was like “Woah! Do you really think anyone is going to buy that for you?”

Of course I really want/ed a Dyson vacuum, and put that on my wedding registry, and I still don’t have one.

Last summer, I saw a registry with Kureig K-Cups on it. They were about the only thing on there we could afford.

I know someone who registered for camping gear.  They both like to camp, so it fits in with their personalities.  It’s just not what I normally expect to see listed alongside their fine china and silverware.

My good friend registered for a day of skydiving for two (it was a honeymoon registry). As cool as skydiving is–and as much as I’d love to do it myself–I would NEVER buy that for someone as a gift. I mean–what if something went wrong? I wouldn’t want that on my conscience…even if they asked for it. 

Side question: what’s the deal with the registry discount? I haven’t registered yet, so I’ve never heard of that. How much of a registry discount do places give? Just curious.
