On other people’s registries, that is.
A couple I know registered for Hermes china at about $1200 a place setting. They also registered for water goblets that were $180 each.
Damn. Where did I go so wrong? Here I am stressing out about registering for my pokey cheapo Crate and Barrel stuff.

$1200 PER place setting??!! O__O

A teepee. It was $6,000.
I’ve also seen MacBooks on several registries. I always view items like that as novelty, as in, I don’t think the bride/groom think anyone is going to get them that.

A four-poster bed frame at either $2k or $4k – I forgot.
Wow, $180 glasses? I would never let anyone use them for fear of chipping/breaking them. Even Tiffany & Co. champagne flutes are more reasonable at $20/glass.

And here I was thinking $40 per place setting was WAY higher than the acceptable range of what to put on the registry lol Honestly, I was shocked that some of the china I liked was that expensive. I’m used to the stuff you get in a box at walmart… ~$30 for everything you need for service for 4/6 (sometimes including glasses lol). I can’t even comprehend $1200 per, that’s insane!
I’ve never ever ever seen anything anywhere near the prices you girls are pointing out. Is this becoming the norm? O.o The most expensive thing I’ve EVER seen on a wedding registry (or any registry) was around $300 and that was because the couple had been saving for a dyson vaccuum and were able to get 15% off any unpurchased items on their registry after the wedding, so they stuck it on the registry to get the discount. They never expected anyone to buy them something that expensive, they just wanted the discount for themselves after lol
We decided not to do a registry, but what I’ve usually seen on other couple’s wedding registry ranges from $5-$40 per item so there’s a variety. I almost never see anything above $50 on anyone’s registry. The couple with the $300 dyson got a couple of shocked comments from people wondering if they’d lost their minds putting something that expensive on there lol

@MissBoPeep: I know, right? I was amazed! My mom was invited to that wedding and she could barely afford anything on the registry. She was budgeting $100 (a lot for her income) and all she could afford was a small cheese cutting board and a damn toothpick set. Wow.
@atlbride2013: A teepee? LOL!
@lilbluebird: Me too. There’s no way I could use the darn things if I knew they cost $180!
@AllTheGoodUsernamesAreTaken: Me too. I’ve been using my cheapo corning ware set for ages. $30 for the box!
I tried to register for a range of stuff. Most of our items are between $50-100, with a few stragglers of $20-30, and a few dream items ranging $200-400. I was stunned when someone bought the Le Creuset starter kit off the registry, but then it turns out that 7 people bought it for us.

@mspartridge: $1,200 for a place setting?!?! I hope it hops in the kitchen, prepares the meal that will be eaten off of it, clears the table, does the dishes, and gently places itself back in the cabinet for that kind of money.
Even then it’s still crazy. Woah.
Most expensive thing I’ve seen was a $700 camera. Quite honestly, if we were registered somewhere where we could put a nice camera on the registry….we’d do it. Hello completion discount.
With that said, I don’t think the $1,200 a place setting people were going back and buying their plates with a discount. Shooooot.

@SuperDuperBrit: LOL, I know, right? I was shocked by that price. They also had a matching serving platter on the registry. For $1000.
I heard recently that this couple now live in NYC, near Central Park, and their apartment is $10,000 a month. *faints* Where did I go so wrong? LOL.

I now feel better about the fine china I registered for at $135.00 a place setting. (To be fair, I didn’t put it on bc I thought it was too expensive, and was promptly scolded by my family members and was told to put it on immediately…. Apparently $150.00 a place setting for china is the average around here….. WHO KNEW?! Not me….)

My cousin registered for a $900 paddle boat. She didn’t get it.

The way my gift registry works is that I can buy whatever I put onto that doesn’t get bought (which will probably be everything since we’ve moved), at an additional 10% discount. So we get 10% off all of the items we buy ourselves, or an additional 10% off any items that are on sale until October 27th 2013. The kicker is that we can only add to the registry by our wedding date. After that we can only buy from it. So for us, we put some higher ticket price items (like 300$) that we itend to buy ourselves, after the wedding.

The vacuum we registered for is 599.99. And its on sale lol. We’re planning on getting it with the completion discount. My guests are gonna think we’re super greedy. We’re also only registered for 26 items. We will update it at some point in the next year though.

I’m sure that they did not actually expect to get this stuff, but:
A big green egg grill thing for $835.
The craziest was the silverware. $280 EACH FORK!

I’ve seen some pricey stuff on other registries but I think we have even pricier stuff on ours. I feel horrible now looking at our registry and seeing the prices on ours compared to what you guys are saying. lol We DO, however, have a great price range of things from $20-$800 (pots and pans set). We know we have pretty expensive things on there and we also know that we most likely won’t get them or expect them. It’s just a wish list.
