Just wondering about registering for flatware. Are you registering for an every day pattern and a formal one? My parents have both as does my sister but I’m wondering about people outside my family.

My family has an everyday set, and a formal set [as well as china for formal gatherings]. I don’t think it’s uncommon.
I currently only have an everyday set, as I don’t have a need for a formal set at the moment.

I registered for both – the Yamazaki Swivel for formal and the Henckel Opus for every day.

We registered just for everyday because the formal stuff makes china look inexpensive. I guess it depends on your social circuit, but no way was anyone buying me a $150 fork. I’ve inherited my great-grandmother’s gold plated sterling silver (6 settings), so that will be our formal flatware. My grandmother has 12 settings of sterling silver we may get as well in the (hopefully far distant) future.
The everyday we got is really quite pretty (though realtively unadorned) and I wouldn’t feel like it looked that out of place with the formal china we have.

We have everyday and registered for sterling silver (it was our main wedding gift).

We’re only registering for every day flatware (we’re not registering for china or anything). We wanted something nice and a little modern-looking, but that would transition well. Also something that was one piece, since my Walmart silverware (metal eating part in a fake wood/plastic coated handle) is falling the eff apart.

My parents use their silver on a daily basis, but have a set of plain stainless that they use for cooking. Since the price of silver has increased insanely over the last few decades, I opted to get really nice stainless. It looks a bit like a silverware pattern. I might consider getting some plainer stainless on down the road for cooking because I feel kind of weird using our good stainless for cooking.

Glad I did a search since this is a new post. Any other flatware suggestions? Bump!

We are registering for flatware from Crate and Barrell. We don’t have a need for formal flatware. I also personally just prefer standard flatware with china.

We registered for an everyday set that matches our already existing set. It works great since for parties we have tons of forks and spoons that match.
My mom is giving me a set of silver. She has hoarded them away so each of my sisters get to choose one when we are married.
