Do it, if nothing else you’ll get a discount afterwards and maybe some gift cards. We put a king mattress set on ours because we’ll get a discount after….

I don’t see anything wrong in adding the TV, some people also chip in together to contribute to a wedding gift, so you never know!

sure why not, lots of people I know have requested artwork as a wedding gift that a dozen or so people chipped in on.  You will get people who say a TV is not a appropriate but these days I figure that anything you and your FH ‘need’ for the home is fair game.  We don’t actually need anything, we’ve been happily cohabitating for 6+ years and have everything, we’re just going to upgrade it all (hopefully).

The worst that can happen is that no one will buy it! We have a couple bigger things on ours.

@snoozebox1220:  mmm, if I saw something like that on a registry it’d probably turn me off from giving them a gift altogether. I normally think of registry as normal household items. But entertainment items, especially at that price? I don’t think so.

As long as the registry isn’t only expensive items, go for it.  I think most people realize it’s so that either a group can go in together, or so that you can get it at a discount after the wedding.

put whatever you want.  i don’t know if your registry does this, but macy’s has a dream fund, where people can contribute cash to your registry instead of buying an item.

@snoozebox1220:  I think that is a bit much to put on a registry. However, there is nothing wrong with gift cards because then you could buy it yourself after 🙂 Group gifts can be incredibly annoying to coordinate, so this option would be a lot easier for your guests (and look a lot less gift grabby). The range you have already sounds perfect, and that one expensive gift would throw everything right off.
