@village_skeptic:  We registered for place settings.  

If people are going to buy you china, they are pretty traditional.  They’ll get a place setting. 

Our china was also available as a 50 pc set – so we put that on the registry too.  If someone buy it for us, they will be getting us 8 place settings for around 400, when just buying the individual place setting is 100.  

We also added serving platters, gravy boats etc.

We registered for some placesettings and some individual peices. We only got full place settings for gifts.

We registered for place settings (~$100/ea) then individual serving pieces. We also registered for crystal glasses (~$30/ea) so people could buy those if they wanted to spend less.

I registered for place settings, then for individual serving and accent pieces to cover different budgets.

I didn’t register for any small knick knacks, so I hope those accent pieces get picked up.  🙂

We’re registered for multiples of individual items for our fine china. I did the math, and it really doesn’t make much of a difference – this way people can still get us china but pay less than a hundred dollars. 🙂

We registered for place settings, but that didn’t include soup bowls, so we registered for multiples of those.  Then we registered for the serving pieces individually.

We registered for place settings plus platter, rimmed soup bowls, teapot, and creamer. If people wanted to purchase a lower-priced gift there were plenty of other registry items to select from.
