I don’t see anything wrong with it.  I personally wouldn’t buy it though, because it would be a pain in the butt to take to a bridal shower.

pearlrose :  Registries are also used for wedding gifts, and all wedding gifts should be delivered, not brought to the wedding, where the couple or the family has to worry about security and transportation.

julies1949 :  Where I live, people bring cards with checks in them to weddings and only give gifts at bridal showers.  But maybe that is regional!

I put a cabinet on my Target registry so we could get the completion discount on it. I also registered for 2 porch rockers for the same reason, someone did buy us those which was a nice surprise! I say go for it!

I don’t think it’s inappropriate. Actually it’s a good idea, I should do the same, rugs aren’t cheap!

marie24 :  I think it is a great idea! That kind of thing makes an ideal gift because it will for sure be used and is exactly what you want.  I would love to give something that’s not along the lines of a soda stream or towels.  I once bought nightstands from a wedding registry and my girlfriend and her husband still use them eight years, three houses, and four kids later.

Most people know there is a completion discount for registry items and for the most part, I assume that is why there are some outrageous items on the registry (couches, large pieces of furniture, etc.).  

It is kind of an awkward item to bring to a shower, but you never know!

It’s totally fine! Most weddings I go to are for people over 25 or even 30 and people already have most of the basics. I’ve seen lots of interesting things on registries like camping gear and stuff like that. Whether it’s a set of towels, silverware, or a tent, a gift is a gift!

As for the sending through the mail vs bringing to the wedding that’s definitely regional. Where I live people have always brought gifts (or cards with money, not necessarily all physical gifts) to the wedding, it’s not a common thing to have a gift sent to someone’s home. And I know other places everyone sends to the home. So that’s just dependent on the norm where you live.

I don’t see anything wrong. We had some furniture and lamps, etc on ours.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a rug on a registry unless it’s bathroom rugs.  I don’t see why you couldn’t do it, unless you’re asking for a $700 rug.
