FYI for those of you registering for china patterns. Royal Doulton has discontinued many patterns (including mine )
Not all of the stores seem to be aware of this, so double check your stuff on the Rehearsal Dinner website, not just the retailer.

Did anyone else register for/get a discontinued pattern? What are you doing now?

A friend had the same problem through William Ashley (massive china store in Toronto). Thankfully she hadn’t yet got anything, so changed the pattern and rolled it all over to the new pattern.
We have gone ahead with purchasing 14 place settings, because we’re afraid of the same thing happening in a few years. A lot of the china patterns seem to be short lived these days, whereas you can still buy my Mom’s at the Bay!

I registered for a Waterford pattern that was discontinued and my grandmother had already purchased 8 place settings. So I let her know and she was nice enough to buy us all of the serving pieces as well as 4 more dinner and salad bowls. I now have all the place setting and extras if things break!

I haven’t decided yet what I’m going to do. I’m leaning towards exchanging things. That way I can get extras like bowls later.
