While many newly engaged couples look for items within a certain price range to add to their registry, some opt to add a few extravagant and expensive items to the mix. There’s no guarantee that someone will buy these items as a gift due to their price. If you choose Macy’s to create your bridal registry, there several over-the-top gifts you can choose from. Some couples like to add these outrageously expensive items to their registry just to see if there is a slight chance they might actually get the item as a gift. However, if you find you end up with one of these gifts and don’t like what you got then you can always take it back and exchange it for something more practical.
