Ohhh, this looks like such a fun post! I was one of the girls who posted in Belle Lamour’s china duel, haha, but I’m going to post mine again. Hope that’s okay!

Lenox “Lace Couture” is my favorite registry gift of all:

 

Waterford’s “Lismore Nouveau”:

 

And Gorham’s “Chantilly” sterling silver flatware:

I love everything you girls have posted thus far!

By the way, paris2386, that story about your FI’s grandmother is beautiful. <3

Here is my china and flatware. I definitely went for the budget options, but I really like them. Both are from BBB. Noritake Crestwood china ($50/setting) and Melon Bud flatware ($40/setting). The flatware is stainless steel instead of silver.

Instead of registering for crystal, we registered for monogrammed glass stemware.

The one thing I would change about the china is the shape of the cup. I’d like a more rounded bottom with no foot.

Guess I’ll recap mine too. ;D

I finally made up my mind last night. I’m going with Lace Couture by Lenox. So excited!

 

I’m pairing my china with Grand Duchess by Towle.

 

And finishing it all off with Lismore Essence crystal stemware!

 

@marjojo your options are classic and elegant! I actually like your cup more than mine; it’s exquisite! Wanna trade? ;P

Thanks, Belle Lamour! My ideal cup would probably be shaped like Mermaid’s. Mermaid, I love how your pieces complement each other!

We didn’t register for china, because we already have a set, which we never use. We didn’t register for expensive glassware, because frankly, we break wayyyyyyyyyyy too many glasses!!! 😉

But I am super excited about our flatware, its plain (which is definitely “us”), but feels awesome in your hand. Just the right size and weight. It’s from Williams-Sonoma.

 And here’s a formal serving bowl we registered for (it’s one of my favorite pieces on the registry):

We already own a stainless flatware, and I inherited my grandmother’s sterling. I am not a fan of cut crystal. For wine glasses, we are registering for a large number of inexpensive Crate and Barrel wine glasses so we will have enough for parties and then probably some simple Reidel glasses as well.

For china, we already own plain white everyday china and are registering for fine china. we are still deciding, but will probably mix and match Herend patterns.
