    We inherited a full set of china AND a full set of sterling – both service for 12!  We only registered for crystal stemware.  We’re all set now and I love having a family heirloom.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I inherited a full set as well and also silver. I love it because it was my grandmothers and then my mothers. For the rare occasion that we do entertain (which has only been twice this year) I use that.

    But if I didn’t have that I definitely would. I’d like to even still, but I’d have no place to store it!

    We are, but i LOVE LOVE LOVE hosting dinners! So we registered for Kensington at Crate and Barrel. A-maz-ing. ๐Ÿ™‚ Chances are no one really wants to spend that much, but here’s hoping!!

    Nope.  We don’t need fine china.  I love to cook and host dinners, but our regular “casual” china works just fine.  Plus, sounds like a real PITA to try to complete an entire fine china set (if you don’t get it all from your guests)… Bleh, too much work and $$.

    Yes.  Isn’t it pretty?  I don’t expect anyone to buy us any, though!  LOL

    Tiffany Weave. 

    I love how I can mix and match it with more colorful platters whenever I want to change it up.

    Can’t wait for china of my own!! It’s hilarious because this is the one “traditional” thing I enjoy about weddings….my mother has her wedding “pattern” and adds a piece or two annually, can’t wait to do the same! It’s a little unconventional, but so’s everything I like…

    my gramma is giving us her whole set of china/serving pieces/silver/crystal. I’m totally overwhelmed by the huge/awesomeness of her gift! Too bad I won’t get it for a while, we have to wait until she/my mom are no longer hosting family seders for Passover for 30-45 people. Some day, my pretties, some day…..

    Rosenthall, Royal Duchess Continental. My gramma always calls it her “wedding band” china.

    No because we don’t have a use for it and cannot imagine asking any friends or relatives to buy gifts that we will never use.

    At first we thought we wouldn’t, but my Grandma really wanted to buy the set for us so we ended up registering for it.  We’re super excited to have something from my Grandma that we can hopefully pass down to our children.

    My Fiance is from a family where the china sits somewhere and collects dust.  I came from a family where we used the china-birthdays  (there was six of us, plus now my SIL, my niece, etc), christmas, new years, valentine’s day, easter, thanksgiving, etc… My parents use theirs at least once a month, and have for almost 40 years.  I like the idea of having dishes i can use to say “this event is special”.  But if you’re not the sort where you want to do things like that/lack the space/etc then I see nothing wrong with leaving it off-it’s a pricy item!

    My Fiance and I want to be the ones to host holidays – we are both the oldest and I can see us both being the host. We do not have china picked out yet but Fiance is super into picking it out (strange) so I will probably let him (primarily) choose.
