Maybe she’s trying to meet some sort of quota or something…

@maggierose: I don’t think it’s tacky because people are entitled and the people she invites can make their own choices. I also don’t know his situation. This may be his first marriage and it may be what he and his family wanted for him.

I don’t think it’s tacky persay (but who registers for a 3k mattress? I have never heard of that)…

I don’t think what she has done and is doing is very smart.

@Smith12: I registered for a $3k bed. Not because I thought someone would buy it for me, but because Crate and Barrell gives you a 10% discount afterwards so that you can get a deal getting the stuff off your registry. I wanted to save $300 LOL

She could have just wanted to savings on it after the registry was done… You never know and no one is saying YOU HAVE TO BUY IT…

I can’t say what is and isn’t appropriate for someone else’s life, but I agree with  @mwitter80: about the completion discount. We haven’t put anything major on our registry yet, but if we hadn’t just purchased a $2500 bed, we would have loved to save $250 on it with a 10% discount!!

@mwitter80: I did the same thing with a few pieces of furniture from C&B! I don’t think anyone will buy them.. but I will gladly take the discount afterwards!!!
