I see so many bees referring to their formal dinnerware as china. I have no issue if they are doing soon in the context of ‘this is my china pattern’. I’ve mentioned wanting actual china though, and some people think that I’m saying their selection isn’t formal ‘enough’.
There is a difference though, and I suggest people learn a bit about the materials before registering!

Just for fun I added a poll. Feel free to share your pattern and the material!

My returned china (longish story).

We are getting formal China from my grandmothers, and we already have everyday dishes so we registered for something that was inbetween. Something that we can use when we are not eating dinner on the couch, or have just a few people over and do not want to be formal.
Vera Wang Glisse. We looked around a lot before we agreed on these.

If I were to register for china, I’d do porcelain. I’m only not registering because it makes no sense space-wise for us to have it sitting and collecting dust when we really could use a new (matching) set of everyday dishes!

I fall into the porcelain category. I didn’t want anything too formal and I wanted to use it for everyday and for special occasions.

Our everyday is just plain white corelle.
Our “formal” (nicer) dinnerware is stoneware.

@AB Bride: What pattern is that? Its beautiful!
We may return ours depending on how many sets we get. If we get 6 out of 12 then I will keep them and collect the rest, If we stay with the 2 sets we have recieved, then they will probably go back. Sad day!

Whatever this Vera Wang for Wedgwood china is? I think bone?
ETA: I looked it up on the website. It’s bone.

@NCSUchick27: We have that for our everyday dinnerware… love it! I have dropped plates on the floor and they don’t even have a chip!
We went with bone China for our fancy dishes… Lenox Hannah Platinum. I wanted a more intricate pattern (LOVE the Lenox Venetian Lace and Opal Innocence), but Fiance wanted something simpler.. I like these because the design is subtle and they seem like they will never go out of style and will match anything.

@StormyRose: That’s ours too!!! Saw it on the shelf and even after looking at everything else… I had to go with that!
