I’m wondering if registering for an area rug (8×10′) is perfectly acceptable or inappropriate. My fiancé says that furniture is inappropriate and she lumps the rug into that category but I’m not too sure it would such a bad area.

I say yes, if you really need it! It’s not like its a little throw rug, to me it seems functional. But this is coming from someone who put a couple strange items on her registry for a laugh.

I’d not register for a rug, not because I think it’s too bulky, but I think it’s too personal. You may very likely return the rug they liked to exchange it for one you prefer. It would be more convenient on both your gift-giver and yourself to simply use gift cards or $$ to purchase such “subjective taste” items.
Just my $0.02.
eta: and to clarify, even though something is listed with an exact item inventory # doesn’t mean that that particular lot will have the exact shading, so, again, I’d want to personally pick out a rug that I can see before me and confirm that all of the threading/coloring is to my taste.

Considering that a decent area rug of that size costs $600’or more…. Nope.

I doubt anyone will get it for you but perhaps theres a completion discount you could use. I dont find it so offensive because it’s still a home good and not furniture.

Meh, it’s a little unusual, but I don’t see the harm. If amy guests don’t care for the idea, then they will surely select another gift, instead!

I think it’s fine, but you might want to say you’re looking for gift cards to ____ store in order to get an area rug. We did that for a sporting goods store in order to get a canoe. A few people took that option with a gift of a size they felt was appropriate and we didn’t have to feel bad about asking for something so expensive (nothing on our registry cost more than 60 bucks as I’m a cheap gift giver and therefore would not expect others to do more for me).
