Oh, very pretty! Great choice!

I’m still up in the air on the decision of china. Part of me wants it; part of me doesn’t know how practical it is.

What fueled your choice for china? I’m so interested! 🙂

I love china posts! We haven’t had one in a while. I don’t think I’ll be getting any for the wedding, but when we own a home someday, I already have mine picked out (if it is still in production haha).

Your picks are lovely! I am partial to Vera Wang because she makes the china I want, but that Martha Stewart pattern is really pretty!

We chose Philippe Deshoulieres’ “Orsay” in powder blue. It’s terribly expensive (imo), and we hemmed and hawed about it for a long time before registering. In the end, we knew china was important to us and we fell in love! We cut registry corners elsewhere to make it happen.

@simplifiedbride: Your china is lovely! Isn’t it fun thinking of how your holiday tables will look with it?

@Gemstone: I can’t speak for the OP, but my Fiance and I knew we wanted china from the beginning. It’s the only thing on our registry we foresee being a family heirloom. We both grew up in families that loved entertaining, and we’re far more likely to host dinner parties than we are to go out to trendy bars. With that in mind and with our already large families, we knew we’d be likely to entertain in a more formal way.

That Martha one is very pretty! I like!  This is what we ended up choosing.  It’s Royal Doulton Countess.

I never considered NOT getting china. We use it often in my family and I really enjoyed choosing it. Mine is  pricey, but we had everyday china and stainless and sterling flatware already and chose simple wine glasses that were not expensive. We are getting quite a bit of it-people can buy just a bread and butter plate or dinner plate or a whole setting.

My FH actually really cared what we got. What he chose is more his style than mine, but it is nice. I would have preferred something more graphic and modern.

We chose Opal Innocence SCrill

Beautiful!  I love China!  I think it’s a very sensible choice for a wedding registry.  I think that it’s wonderful to pick something that will always be a special momento of your special day.  I have a few pieces that were wedding gifts to my great grandparents who married over 100 years ago.  They are definitely cherished heirlooms.
