I think that sounds fine. I doubt people put that much critical thought into why you’ve registered for what. As long as there is stuff in their price range, I think they’re happy.

I don’t think it looks bad at all! Fiance and I did the same thing since we did not register for fine china. We picked one set that can be dressed up (white with a nice bead border) for more formal dinners and then a set from crate and barrel with this blue swirl on them.


Something we did do was register for different pieces in each. We asked for both sets of dinner plates and salad plates, but only registered for soup bowls and tea cups in the white dishware and cereal bowls and mugs in the blue. To me this helped make it clearer in my own head “Ok this is the stuff we’re using for entertaining” and “this is the stuff for dinners in front of the tv.”

I asked a question similar to this a few weeks ago. I already have fiestaware and tons of it. My family knows I am obsessed. I wanted to add some other brands to our registry when we register (maybe corelle). Everyone seemed to think it sounded fine! Just make sure you have lots of gifts at different price points.

I think people would understand the need for more than one set of dishes. Go for it!

I think that sounds fine! I have Corelle just because it’s so convenient for the microwave (it doesn’t heat up much) and it’s cheap & durable (don’t have to worry when taking something to a picnic or something). I’m sure people understand that they’re kind of two different things.
