    I want fine china so bad! But some of the patterns I’ve seen online, are sold per place setting. So what if I register for 4 place settings, but only end up getting 3 or something??? I don’t get it either! I would feel like a brat asking for someone to pay that kind of money for one place setting.

    I want to register for a nice formal set of dishes. I manage a tabletop store and kind of have a dish addiction (I have Christmas Dishes and my everyday set) but I’d really would like a formal set.

    @Bostonsmom: I am actually registering for a 16 piece set. It is the exact same quality as those buy one setting at a time and looks just as classy. And they are all made in China these days anyways so why pay more?

    I couldn’t wait to register for china!! A lot of older women buy china because they consider it an “investment.” Both my sisters got a pretty good amount of china from their registery. I don’t plan on using that often either, probably anniversaries, holidays, etc.

    Well, we got a full 6 settings of vintage Lenox china from my mom for our engagement present, but my FI still wanted to register for our ‘own’ china. So the vintage china will be for very special occasions.

    We registered for the Lenox Vintage Jewel – super fancy πŸ™‚ But honestly I don’t really care if we get it or not. We already have a set, and I’d rather get all of my kitchen appliances before I get the china. 

    A picture, just for fun πŸ™‚

    I am registering for China.

    It’s always been a big tradition in my family to buy china as wedding presents and it’s something special tht kind of symbolizes a new marriage.

    Ok, maybe that sounds a bit mushy but I’m totally obsessed with one pattern and thank goodness FI likes it too πŸ™‚

    Likely we will not. I think the prices are ridiculous, and if I really want to get a set to last a long time, I would want 10+ settings. For a wedding where I’m inviting fewer than 100 people, I’m not sure I want to fill my registry with china stuff. We might register for a set of nice plates or something that have white as a main color. Then we don’t have to worry about getting all the plates (salad plate, dinner plate, bowl) and all the matching stuff (platters, creamers, etc) right now. We would be able to add to our collection and still use them all together.

    We’ll be inheriting china, so we didn’t register for any.  Plus, we REALLY love our huge fiestaware collection!

    I did not because I seriously doubt I’d ever use it.

    I did because I love hosting dinner parties and hope one day when we move to a bigger place to host Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. It is not a holiday dinner to me without china. I see how it is not for everyone though. If you do not entertain often then it makes no sense to register for it.

    I have some that will be passed down to me through family and I don’t really have the space or the need for fine china right now.  I didn’t register for it for these reasons.
