I would definitely like to register for fine china but I’m not finding any patterns that I really like.
The only one I’m drawn to is Kate Spade’s June Lane pattern

My Fiance thinks it’s kind of gross to have “bugs” on our china but says it’s my choice. Do you think this is weird or gross? Would you be put off if you went to someone’s house and were served dinner on this china?
This seems so silly but thank you!

I agree with your Fiance. I hate bugs!! Is there a similar silver china sans bugs?

I’m gonna be brutally honest here…any bug that flies grosses me out!!! I don’t think I would want to eat with one but I would never judge you for it if that’s what you like.

Yes I am also very turned off by the bug…especially while I’d be eating..Im sure you can find another china pattern similar to this without the bug! 🙂

If you like it, then go for it. But the only thing I would say is that it may be hard to buy extra sets if Kate Spade ever stops selling them, and I haven’t seen many with dragonflies on them.
That said, I like bugs, and dragonflies lol, so I like them.
Have you checked out Crate and Barrel’s china? They have some cool patterns that don’t feel stuffy and are interesting. And they rarely discontinue their china.

I have always loved those Kate Spade patterns that have the dragonfly. Lots of people don’t get the style, but who cares? They are your dishes. 🙂

I don’t think the china pattern is too weird. Its nice, although it’s not my taste. It was really sweet of your Fiance to say you can choose, but I think you should find a pattern you both like since you will be sharing it together as a married couple 🙂

This was my second favorite pattern after the one we ended up with (Kate Spade Gardner Street). Mind you I’m a big fan of dragonflies, and I love the crackle pattern accents.

I like them, but I don’t mind dragonflies and I love the crackly parts 🙂 If it were me though I would try to find something we both liked.

Not my style. I think they are too trendy personally. China I think should be classic.
Dragon flies are not so classic….

Gardner Street is the other one I like too! Maybe that’s a safer bet. Why did you end up choosing that one?
I’ll check out crate and barrel, we have our other registry there so maybe I can find something.
Thanks for ALL of your replies! it’s definitely good to get everyone’s feedback. I actually thought more people would like the pattern so it’s good to know there are a bunch that really don’t. Even though I like it I don’t want me guests to be grossed out.
