Hi Bees! I’m wondering what other brides have picked out? I’m a younger bride and a friend who recently wed said something to the effect of no one registers for fine china anymore. I’m not sure if this is true, but regardless I live for dinner parties so you bet your ass I’m registering for fine china!
Did you register for fine china? If so, can you share your pic with me?

I don’t really think a pic does it justice, but we ended up with Kate Spade Cypress Point. I got the same thing about nobody using china any more, but I’m like you and LOVE dinner parties!

My family is really into china so we registered for 10 place settings. Most of my friends registered for fine china as well and would have thought it was weird if I had not done so.
On the other hand, my husband’s family isn’t really into china and I think were sort of confused about the cost and need for fine china.
Honestly, if you’ll use it and love it, fantastic! This is mine (sorry it’s huge!). It is Whiteworks for Wedgewood by Jasper Conran.

I registered for it and love it. We use it pretty frequently-sometimes for dinners for just the two of us. Our decor is modern but i didn’t want something too plain. I like the one I chose because it has an art deco look..

China was the thing we cared about most on our registry. We figured it was the only gift that could become a family heirloom. We chose Philippe Deshoulieres’ “Orsay” in powder blue and couldn’t love it more!
P.S. sorry the pic is so big!

@cakegal: Thanks! I really like it since it’s not true “traditional china” but it’s a nice pattern. We have lots of old traditional china in our families so we wanted something a little more modern.

@pink.sequins: definitely USE your china on a regular basis! Good china, silver and crystal are meant to be used- not just kept in a cabinet.

…. is it weird that we dont own formal china?
i think it might just be an american thing to use lovely beautiful formal china for when they have dinner guests.
I think i might go out and look for lovely china set 🙂

@julies1949: Thanks for the encouragement! I scaled back on our everyday dinnerware and so we’ll be forced to use it 🙂
