FI and I recently decided not to register for fine china. Instead, we chose a nice set that can be used everyday as well as for a nice dinner. We didn’t find a pattern we LOVED and we plan to move in a few years and didn’t want to haul it all around wih us. Did you register for china? Add a pic!

We’re not, we just don’t have a use for it, or anywhere to put it!!

I second, that is too cute!!
We are registering for fine china but we are only registering for 2 place settings, enough for me and the boy for special occassions and we will gradually add on over time. We did pick a very nice set of daily every day dishes that can be used daily or for nicer occasions.

Yes! We registered for Waterford Colleen with the Waterford ballet ribbon black charger. We were going to register for 12 place settings of Fiesta in white and 4 place settings of Fiesta, but my paretns bought it all for us as part of our engagement gift.

Yes, we are registering for some fine china. Yes, we are college students who need a lot more practical things, but I LOVE to cook great food and it’d make me so sad if I made an exceptionally special meal and had to serve it on our everyday cheapo china. 🙁 We will definitely be registering for some. No patterns picked out yet though.

I voted no BUT we are actually getting fine china from my FI’s mom. She has two sets that were passed down to her and she has two sons…It isn’t my taste exactly, but I appreciate the sentiment behind it plus the craftmanship is awesome. So I am registering for the nice steamware and silverware to go with it.

No, but I would if I wasn’t getting my grandmothers. My mother had her set and my grandmothers. She gave my SIL her set (after asking me which I wanted) and is giving me my grandmothers.

Nope. I’ll be honest- we just need stuff! We are leaving behind all our home stuff when we leave Tokyo and we’ll need everything all over again. China is the last of our worries. Besides, were not really “china people”- or at least I’m not. I break stuff all the time and leave the dishes in the sink for days on end!

I didn’t want to at all, but FI said it was mandatory, so we compromised and did 8 place settings. I love what we chose but I just don’t see the point. FI & I live, and will always live, very far from our entire family and every single one of our closest friends. We won’t be entertaining or hosting holidays all that often. We agreed to use it for anniversary dinners in and weekly Sunday family dinners with our kids at the very least. It’s Royal Doulton Countess:

Yes, definitely. I love fine china-picking out the pattern is going to be harder than picking out my dress! I want something relatively elaborate. Our everyday china is plain white, so i don’t just want a platinum band.
We already have everyday china and stainless and my grandmother’s silver so china and glasses are a big part of the registry. We are not getting crystal-I have a horrible problem breaking wine glasses!
We are thinking of mixing and matching similar patterns of Herend china. It is still handpainted, which I think is very cool. There is a also an Hermes pattern we love, but it costs a fortune-we would be lucky if each guest gave us a teacup!

Nah, we’re fine without it. 😛 SO already has a nice everyday set and a fancy set, and I have a big, fancy vintage set that my grandmother gave me as a gift. China is covered.
But I won’t lie. I am a bit lustful after my grandmother’s vintage Wedgwood collection…that’s some nice stuff!

No, I honestly have zero interest in fine china. We have very nice, plain white dishes and I’m happy with them. They can look formal or casual depending on what else we set the table wtih.

I registered for a nice bone china set from C&B. It can be dressed up easily and we just don’t have the storage for fine china!
