    I don’t see why not?! If you want something, that’s what the registry is for. Nobody is obligated to buy it for you, after all.

    Absolutely yes!

    For “furniture” items I tried to add only items of stores that were near me. So hopefully anyone who lives near us can buy those at the stores and save on shipping!

    I’ve got a aluminum wicker patio set on there, Adirondack chairs, outdoor shed…

    I agree with ejs4y8. Plus, if people don’t buy it, you will get a discount from target after the wedding is over to purchase things left on your registry.

    Yup, I don’t see anything wrong with it.  I have even bought a couple a lamp as their gift off their registry.  And remember people choose what they want to give you, nothing is forced here.

    I totally think it okay! I mean, I love shopping for people off registries because that way I know I’m getting them something they want. If you want the furniture, then totally add it! I’m sure a friend would be happy to get you something nontraditional (everyone only needs so many towels haha) and something you like.

    Absolutely!  I used to work in gift registry and would remind people that it’s like creating your own sale since you get to buy things at a discount after the wedding.  We had a small Crate and Barrel registry that we put stuff we wanted to buy on and didn’t tell anyone about the registry (except our Moms) since we really just wanted to be able to buy some of the things at a discount.  Plus your guests have a choice so it’s not like they have to buy you the furniture if they prefer to get something else.

    I think so! We put on some lamps, a hanging wine rack, magazine racks, etc. IF we didnt already have stuff we probably would have registered for a little side table or something and its totally fine! Im interested to know why 2 people said no to this!

    I personally think its fine.  People want to get you what you really want.  So if it happens to be furniture, they won’t mind at all.

    Definitely do it!

    And here’s why: After your wedding, you’ll get a registry completion offer, which will give you 10 percent off everything that wasn’t purchased. If you don’t get these items, but you want them, you can buy them yourselves, but at a discount ๐Ÿ™‚

    We put thing on our registry that we knew no one would buy, but we used the completion discount after the wedding because some items just NEVER go on sale.

    If you’re not comfortable putting furniture on, a lot of places like Crate & Barrel, allow you to put gift cards on your reg and a lot of ppl use that to buy a bed for example.

    Definitely!  If you want you can put big ticket items on your registery… just be prepared that it probably won’t get purchased unless you have some generous relatives out there!  My Fiance and I are in need of a new coffee table.  My mom and grandma are going in on it for my bridal shower gift.  We are also in need of a media storage cabinet so that’s on there too.  If you really need stuff put it on there… you can always purchase yourself after the wedding.  Most places offer discounts to complete your registery.  An added bonus!
