afineskyline:  I don’t think so. If you are going to use both then it’s fine. Your registry should have things on it that both you and your FI want for your home.

Seems perfectly reasonable to me!

afineskyline:  We registered for both. Our everyday “China” is just the Macy’s line and is quite inexpensive and plain white. The fine China we picked is  Kate Spade, and we are mixing 2 patterns together so we registered for each piece individually. I guess it actually works out better because, like you said, guests can buy what they feel like and not necessarily an entire place setting. So far we’ve received a serving platter from our fine China and nothing from our every day China haha.

afineskyline:  don’t worry about putting an expensive item on the registry. if you get it, great, if not thats okay too. 

What some people might do is “group gift” you might get a bunch of people to chip in on an expensive item. OR some people might just get you a  giftcard to the store you are registered at. 

I didn’t put china on mine bc I couldn’t find a set I liked. SO I plan to get one later on if I should ever find something I do like. 

We did put a DYson vacuum on our registry, ($600). We didn’t get it, but we got so many giftcards and cash to cover the vacuum, so we were able to purchase it!

afineskyline:  I think it’s perfectly fine, if not expected. The lady at BBB was dumbfounded that we weren’t registering for “fine china” as well as every day china.
