This girl I know is getting married. She has the most expensive registry I’ve ever seen! She wants 800.00 for 1 place setting! WHO would pay that? And she wants 10 of them!!! That’s 8000.00 in china. I personally do not understand this. A butter knife alone costs 300.00 I’m all for nice china, but OMG. Is this too crazy to ask your guests to pay this amount? Or does it just let people know you have very elegant taste (the china is stunningly beautiful)

She may have a wealthy family that can afford this stuff… she might be wanting to start her own collection… she might also get discounts on the stuff not purchased after her wedding and purchase it herself?

*giggle* I registered for $170 flatware ($170/5-piece set) which is INSANE in my book. No one’s bought it yet, but I love it so and I figured if there was a time to do it, this was the time! No one HAS to purchase it, after all!
Well, some people DO have wealthy families for whom high prices are par for the course. If it’s too rich for your blood, give her something personal referencing your relationship with her or the couple. For my friend who moved to France, I gave him and his wife three DVDs of mine and DH’s favorite international movies and a bunch of foodstuffs that you can’t get outside of the States for a “movie night in.” He loved it.

Wow, and I felt bad about registering for my Kitchenaid mixer and Dyson vacuum! $800 per place setting us outrageous. For that price is better cook and clean!

Is that just an option, or is the $300 butter knife the lower end of the registry?
I have no issue with people having some pricier items on their registry, since who knows what the circumstances are, and it’s just a wishlist, but there should be some lower price point options.

Wowza. She must have seriously rich family and friends, if they can afford $800 plates.

I guess anyone has a right to register for whatever they want. But I returned the place settings I registered for because they were almost $40 per place setting when I thought it was $40 for 4 place settings. I know I won’t be spending $40 to replace every plate DH or I break. I could never register for china or flatware that cost that much. I think it’s pretty rediculous. I certainly hope that they registered for something more reasonable.

That china will get used once. What a waste. But then again, I have lots of paper plates/plastic ones from Target and shop at resale shops. Other people can maybe afford this, so good for her and the people at her wedding.
