    we did not…it’s a nice thing to have, but we just didn’t see the necessity.

    We will supposedly be inheriting my fiance’s family china, which is reportedly ridiculously fancy. Like, so fancy that I’ll be intimidated to use it. So, we’re registering for more casual china (to *finally* replace the dishes I’ve had since I was 17!!!), but nothing more special than that.

    We are registering for casual china at Bed Bath & Beyond.  It’s gorgeous but still functional.  I wouldn’t let the kids eat off of it but it’s still elegant for holidays and fancy dinner parties.

    Oh yeah, we registered for a full 12 placesettings.  We’ll use them all the time, for dinner parties and family events.  I love fine china.  I already have a nice casual set that I bought a few years ago, so we’ll use that for everyday, once we move back to the US.

    I think it just depends on the other things you need for your home.  If you need lots of things like towels and appliances and sheets and things, you may not have the “room” for fine china on the registry.

    We didn’t register for china.  I am the only child so I’m going to get my parents’ china and probably soon because my dad is trying to clear things out of his house.

    We registered for china.  I debated about it, because we have a pretty decent everyday set already, but I love hosting Thanksgiving and other dinners, so I figured it would be worth it.  Plus we didn’t need a lot of other registry stuff since we’ve been living together for a few years.

    I think you should definitely register for fine china even if you will inherit some from family. Three main reasons:

    1. What if you have more than one child? Wouldn’t you like to have some fine family heirlooms to pass on to each, not just the eldest?

    2. China, Crystal, Servingware and Silver are lovely gifts, you can keep adding to over the years for anniversaries, Christmases, birthdays, etc. Even if you don’t think you will want it now, wait 10-20 years. It takes decades to put togther a collection.

    3. Least importantly, wouldn’t it be nice to have different china patterns for different occasions? Classic, modern, antique, eclectic, why not mix and match?

    This is coming from an only child who grew up with her dad. We ate take-out most nights on mis-matched plates and mugs. Maybe that is why it is so important to me.
