(Closed) Appropriate Wedding Registry Item?

  • poll: Area Rug (8x10') on Wedding Registry, acceptable?

    Definitely, if you need it for the home, go for it!

    Nope, that's too big and like furniture, skip that one.

    I honestly have no idea, that's an excellent question.

    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).
