I don’t find it tacky but I do find it weird.  Also, I don’t really like it when the cheapest thing on the registry is $200.  Depending on who the couple is, I might not want to spend that much on someone I barely know.

hmmm the baby stuff seems kind of weird. There is a separate shower for that!

Are you SURE she’s not pregnant?

Regardless, it’s kind of weird.  But if they really did need baby things right away, I wouldn’t fault them for including it.

But I would definitely fault them for not including anything cheaper than $200! Sheesh.

Wow! I wonder if that was a mistake, or an announcement they haven’t made yet???

I agree with PPs, more weird than tacky.

Is this a target registry? For some reason I remember one of the Bees registered there and when she checked her registry it had all kinds of baby stuff they didnt add.

@kate169: I had the same problem at Target.  Not quite as bad as her, but we had diapers and baby books added to our registry, on three seperate occasions.  We ended up completely nixing our registry from there.

Hmm that’s a little strange, and for me, just would invite questions that I wouldn’t want to have to face about being currently pregnant, or starting right away.  Plus, who wants to have to store a crib for a potentially long while?

As for the price point, maybe they’re hoping to get mostly cash, and want to purchase these things with their completion discount?

Different for sure, and likely a bit overpriced for many of their potential guests.

But tacky? No, that is judgemental-especially given that you don’t know the circumstances re how the baby things landed in their registry.

That’s weird. I’d wouldn’t even shop off the registry. 200 min? that’s like saying don’t bother with less we don’t do “less” than 200.

That’s kind of weird. Register at Target and call it a day!
