As long as you have a smattering of priced items to accomidate even the most modest of budgets, you will be fine.

I got my completion card in the mail a few weeks ago…. It is for 10 % off of everything including furniture.  So you don’t need to put the chair on your registry if you don’t want to.

I agree with the first poster above…so long as your registry isn’t ALL high-ticket items, it’s perfectly fine! We did the same thing with ours – a couple pieces of furniture that we knew we wouldn’t get, but tacked on there all the same!

before i knew about registry fulfillment discounts, i had an acquaintance invite me to her wedding. when i looked up the registry she had registered at Crate & Barrel for a $1200 bench. i was a little taken aback by it, TBH.

it didnt help that she had registered at 5 different stores (very few things under $100) and had even posted on facebook “while every ‘no’ rsvp makes me a little sad, the gifts they send in the mail surely make me smile!” … so to me, it seemed like she legit thought someone owed her a $1200 bench.

now, knowing about those discounts, if a normal person registered for that, i would just think “oh she wants a discount on that”… so i guess it depends on your guests and how educated they are in the world of weddings as well as how you are generally perceived by others. since you are thinking enough to ask this question, i have a feeling youre fine!

We are registered at Crate & Barrel and we have a bar that’s nearly $1,000 on there. We decided to put it on there because we are going to buy it anyway after the wedding, and in my family, frequently people go in together on big ticket items. So, we didn’t think it was the worst idea ever. Plus, we chose the “gift card” option as well, with the thought that any gift cards we received would go toward that item as well.

And with C & B so many things are extremely affordable, one or two big ticket items shouldn’t cause a stir.
