I know in comparison to other topics this seems like a minute detail on a forum, but I would love insight on this since it is (possibly by far) the most expensive item on our registry. I have always slept with a comforter and we are getting a queen bed, so I would really love to receive a comforter. However, I'm a little torn between a few choices at Bed Bath & Beyond. I'm worried that some polyester comforters may not be soft and comfy enough and be pointless due to being too hot during Texas summer heat, and we can't feel most of them in person beforehand.
There is one that is particularly special to us (it happens to match our favorite wedding invites that we couldn't have), and it is 100% cotton. However, it is $200 for just the grey comforter and two pillow shams. Alternatively, there are other, mainly polyester, comforters that range from $100 with more components than this one, to $250 that also includes sheets, which we need as well. These are not our favorite, but we're both quite fine with them - assuming they are comfortable. I'm wondering what we should do. I'm thinking maybe we should put the comforter that we like best (aside from the more expensive one) on the registry, polyester or not, and if it we receive it and it turns out that it isn't workable for us, then we exchange it for another at the store. However, I don't know if this is wrong in the eyes of a guest.
Other options would be putting both on the registry and letting someone else decide if and how much they want to spend on a comforter - but I don't know if this would make everyone not want to buy either - and we do really want a comforter, regardless! Or just going ahead and putting the cotton favorite on. Or something else I haven't thought of.
We have a lot of items on our two registries. There is only one other item above $100 and <10 in the $50 - $100 range, so one more expensive option might be appreciated, but we have a loot in the $1 - $25 range and I don't want to look greedy or spend money unnecessarily.
If you want to weigh in specifically, here are our options!: (Also, fyi, we have two indoor cats that often sleep with us)
