    You can put them on there, but I’m not sure if people will buy them for you unless they group together.

    I think it’s fine. People don’t have to buy you anything on that list, but you never know. And people might decide to go in together on a bigger purchase together. It can’t hurt, so why not?

    i dont think you should.. i think it should be one of those “unwritten” items.. i would hint it to a couple important ppl, like your parents.. and let it get around by word of mouth.. but i wouldnt put it on your registry.   If i saw a fridge on a registry.. i would be like “wtf” lol

    I wouldn’t object to it.  I just wouldn’t buy it.  I wouldn’t be opposed to joining in with others to buy it as a group gift though.  I’d still give/spend the same amount I was going to give/spend in the first place.

    I think it’s odd. I saw a dishwasher on my friends registry and while we are super closer and I love her to death I wondered why she put it on there. I get it that sometimes people want to group together on a purchase but it just seems odd to register for such a large item.

    I think it depends.

    How generous is your family? In my husband’s family the average gift was $50 per couple (small town Upstate NY). But if it were in NYC the average *I* would personally give is $200 per couple minimum. My family by culture is a lot more generous but everything comes in cash.

    And also I think it depends on what kind of stove, fridge you’re talking about. Are you talking about a $500 stove or a 1K stove? A $600 fridge or a 2K fridge? The couple hundreds sure, I can see a bunch of aunts, uncles going in on something like that. Anything over 1K seems unlikely unless that’s how your family rolls. People have no qualms putting a Dyson on there so anything within the range seems plausiable to me?

    Have you considered a cash registry? I know it’s taboo in a lot of circles but for some it’s fine?

    I thnk its fine.  Just because its there doesnt mean you’re trying to force people to buy it, and its a good way to get 10% off completion bonus, whcih is why a lot of people do put it on.  A few diff people may even group together to get something.

    @SpecialSundae:

    ah bummer on the no cash registry. I was comfortable with doing it along with our regular registry but my husband was not so we nixed it. Even though all gifts from my side came in cash. 🙂

    Are you the first to get married in your families? What have other’s registries been like? You might be able to get some insight from their registries.

    And also….all of my husband’s aunts and uncles are VERY comfortable and quite well off. Whereas my family is not. And his family where the cheapskates when it came to wedding gifts! Go figure!
