Can you exchange other items you don’t want as much to get more china sets?

I’m also surprised people didnt choose it for you at all!

Maybe it was the price (or a combination of price and economy). A former roomie got married a while back, and I could afford to give one piece of stemware from their registry (forget about china). I hated the idea of wrapping one wineglass, so I went for a different gift within my price range. So that might be the thought process..

Thats weird in my opinion. That is the first thing I look to buy on registry websites. Its just so classic and traditional. Did you register at a less common store? There are no Macys around my parent’s house and they would never drive far to buy a gift. Most of the older folks I know are like that. And they aren’t real savy about buying online.

But which set did you register for?? 🙂 I love china.

China is probably the last thing I would look to buy. And I always felt China was best reserved for close family members.

So yeah, I would not buy the china even if I could afford it. Unless I was really close the couple and I knew they really wanted it.

I only got one as well.  It didn’t bother me though, because my china never goes on sale (it’s ‘designer’) at the store I registered at.  Everything tends to be overpriced there, so most of my guests know not to buy anything unless it’s on sale (20-50% off occurs all the time).  It was also fairly expensive.

I just used my GCs towards some of my china, and I figure I can get more later on.

I am surprised about the wine glasses.  I got all my stemware, although it was quite affordable.

Could it have been the cost of each setting? Mine were pretty pricey so only my mom, MIL and aunt bought the China and Stemwear for us..we are still in the process of completing it though.

People for some reason did not want to get us ANY dishes. In the end we got part of a set of regular bowls, and the creamer from our china set. That’s it.

We returned the creamer and got most of the regular dishes ourselves at the registry completion event (we got TONS of gift cards). I’m not heartbroken about not getting china sets, between our parents we’ll inherit a couple eventually and we don’t need them now.

I don’t know about Macy’s, but some stores will contact you when your china is on sale, as well as notify you ahead of time if it will be discontinued.

We didn’t get alot of china either.  I thought it would be the first thing to go on the registry, but it wasn’t we got 5 place settings and one platter.  I bought one more place setting with a giftcard.  I think it’s the economy – people don’t think china is practical and you would use something else more often.
