I’ll have to agree with 90% of the posters above me and say that unless you are 100% sure that the bride AND groom would adore it, I would stick with the registry. Although there aren’t any pictures in the post, I quickly googled it, and I think this is probably a very specific taste.

I agree with pretty much everyone here. You have to think about what the couple would like, not what you , as the gift givers, like.
For instance: for an anniversary, Fiance gave me little diamond stud earrings. I never wear studs and I really don’t like "small" jewelry. I knew i would never ever wear them so I told my Fiance and we exchanged them for something else. When i asked him why he got them for me even though he knows it’s totally not my taste, he responded with "they were something i would have really liked to see on you." BAD gift giving approach. The gift was for me but he was trying to make it a gift for himself. That’s like the equivalent of a man buying lingerie as a V-day gift.
I personally would not like something like that vase. it just seems to kitchy for my taste. It would be unfortunate to receive something like that and then just keep it in the garage.

I’m with everyone above… too risky, too subjective, too geared to the bride, and it sounds like it’s expensive, so it’ll be a real shame if they keep it in a basement and never use it. File the idea away, though, because it is clearly the perfect gift someday for your sister! (For her wedding if she’s not married, or a major anniversary if she is.)

I’d say no on this one, sounds too subjective to a person’s taste. I have seen a gift where the invitation put on clay tile that looked nice, but it’s dependent on the person.

I agree with heather25. I would stick to their registry, so you know your gift to them goes with their taste in decor.

Thanks for the opinions! I don’t have a pic of any samples from this particular studio but I’ll post something along the lines of what it would look like below. Normally I would say no to this but my sis is such a sweetie and she is SO excited about this, I feel like I can’t shoot her down. I may get my friend another, separate gift just from me.
