Fiance and I had bought a very cheap dining room table when we first moved out together two years ago. This morning I set the orange juice carton and the table and a leg broke causing the table to collapse to the ground. We knew the legs were bad but we figured it would last us at least until after the wedding so we could have money to buy a new one. Since the wedding is only 6 weeks away, we just dont have it right now. Would it be weird to add one to our registry?

I’ve seen all kinds of furniture items, vacuum cleaners, power tools on registries so I don’t think it’s too crazy!

I guess it depends on how much the one you want costs. I know people can go in on gifts, but I would definitely look twice if I saw a $3000 or more single item on a registry.

Personally I love buying things off people’s registries that I know they’re actually going to get a lot ot use out of, so I don’t think it’s weird. As long as you can find one you like that doesn’t have an entirely prohibitive cost, I say throw it on there!

No, I don’t think it’s out-of-bounds. You obviously need it . Ask your mothers/MOH to put the word out that it could be a group gift.
We put some pretty crazy items on our registry along with the usual stuff. Not that we actually expect the high ticket items (granted, nothing is anywhere close to $3,000). Fiance and I already have a lot of what we need, and to upgrade what we have puts things in a higher price bracket.

Nope, not crazy at all . In my circle I see furniture all the time on registries, usually paid for by a close family member

Totally put it on there! Even if no one buys it for you, most places will give you a “completion discount” which is basically a discount on whatever items weren’t purchased so you can complete your registry yourself.

Nope. My friend had a dining room set on her registry. She got it.
