We had the exact same problem with Bloomingdales (we chose a Haviland pattern).  Someone purchased a piece in March and we got a card saying it would come in October!  It wound up coming quite a few months sooner than that, but it was frustrating.  

My sister-in-law used UpscaleGallery.com to register for china, and we finally just switched our china registry over to them.  The china is much less expensive and arrived faster.  I think their ability to deliver china within a time frame varies by pattern; they request that you contact them by email to find out how long your specific pattern will take.  The Haviland has been quite fast.  You can fill out a bridal registry, and add it to your website but it won’t appear on any of the national registry sites like weddingchannel.com .  Good luck!

My wedding isn’t until over a year from now, but I’ve been engaged a while and our engagment party is next month so I was encouraged to register for that (by my FIs big, wealthy, pushy Greek family lol)…

anyways, we just registered for a Wedgwood china pattern I’m in love with at Macy’s.  It says “estimated ship date” of 108 days!! So maybe this is typical of Wedgwood? 

Have patience, Cantabrigian, I’m sure it’s worth the wait 🙂  Fingers crossed that it arrives at your door soon!
