I don't think this is "tacky" at all - the whole idea of what's tacky & tasteful is ridiculous anyway - BUT the whole purpose behind wedding registries is to get the couple all the things they'll need to start their lives together. This tradition was born in a time where people did not live together before they got married - so it made sense to get them household gifts ! Now-a-days more and more people live together before they marry, or just choose to live together and not marry at all - does that make their need for household items any less important ?? of course not ! And how much better is it to know what they need rather than guessing !?! Naturally, if a couple chooses to do this ..and then chooses to marry, it would be silly to have ANOTHER registry for gifts - but perhaps a registry for a Honeymoon is more appropriate. I see a Housewarming Registry no different from a Bridal registry &/or Wedding registry.
