If you have people who either alone or as a group might buy it then add it. It’s only rude if that was your only options and people didn’t have anything in lower price ranges.

um, we put a $900 coffee table on our registry. plus two matching end tables that are $450 each.

however, we aren’t actually expecting anyone to buy it–we are going to use the completion discount to buy those pieces. and all of our gift cards that we get to that store. 🙂

Personally, I don’t think it’s rude, but others may have different opinions. Here’s my thinking: we put an $1100 bed on our registry. Why? We knew our guests wouldn’t buy it for us, but the lady at Crate and Barrel who helped with our registry said to put “anything” we wanted on there because they have a registry completion discount of 10%. If you really want something, it might be worth the discount! Plus family members do go in together – my extended family wanted to buy me a Margaritaville, but it wasn’t on the registry. I didn’t put it on there because I thought it was “too expensive.” Husband was bummed!!

I don’t think it’s rude…especially if you’re going to get a discount on anything that was on your registry after your wedding. We purposefully put our wine rack on our registry for that reason. I had 7 bridesmaids, and they ended up chipping together to buy it for us! It was so sweet!

We registered for things all over the map, from $3 – $1000. Originally we were not going to have fine china and sterling flatware on the registry, but my Grammy INSISTED I register for it and offered to store it – because for now and a while out we live in a modest sized 1 bedroom apartment, and no, we do not have a dining room -LOL.

If anyone looks down on us for having high end items on the list, I say screw em. Even though I kinda want to put a disclaimer near the pricey items saying “we really don’t expect these things but my Grammy told me I HAD to!” lol

We have a $1700 bed on there, and I put it on because of the C&B discount too, but guess what!?!?  (here is where I admit something awful) It’s been purchased!!!! (ya,ya, I looked) So you never know!

I definitely think it’s okay to put expensive things on your register.  Family groups will often go together to buy objects that they think you’ll just love.

@rollercoaster: i agree with you. i would actually encourage you to check it every so often to make sure it’s recording gifts. our crate and barrel registry was having problems..it was showing the gifts in the thank you manager, but it wasn’t recording them on registry. luckily, a friend noticed, but not before 4 sets of the same vase were purchased 🙂

we registered for a bunch of furniture because honestly, that’s what we really need! FH and I have been living together for 3 years, but because of various situations, have not been able to free up enough cash to replace our old pre-cohabitation furniture. i agree with the other bees, though: 1) just make sure you have plenty of other options in lower price ranges so that people don’t feel bad if they can’t afford to get you that $600 coffee table, and 2) it’s all about giftcards and completion discounts, which we plan to take advantage of and apply toward whatever is left on our registry.

Where can you resgister for furniture?  I would love people to put money on a new couch and t.v.  I would really love a new stove too.  I heard that Home Depot lets you register.  You can put your dreams on the registry, weather people buy it for you or not, they at least know what you need.
