Fine China? yes or no?

Recommended Posts

We didn't register for fine china but we did get a very generous gift card as a wedding present and used it to buy all matching place settings. Not fine china but fancy enough! I think for me the point is that every time we use it it reminds me of our wedding and brings back all those feelings wink.gif

I agree if you aren't gonna use it or even use it that often.....why waste the money on that? You could register for other things that you would get use out of. I like the simple white dinnerware sets from Crate and Barrel. You can use them for everyday dinnerware and also on those special occasion get togethers. All you have to do is mix up the cloth napkins, glasses, etc to either make it casual or formal.

I love entertaining and like to have nice dinnerware to use. However, you gotta think of the following things when registering for gifts.


1. Are you really gonna use it that often? If you aren't then is it money well spent?

2. Is this something you would spend money on yourself? Cause if you wouldn't pay that much for it, do you expect others to?

3. Do you have the money to spend on it? Cause what if you don't get a complete set from your guests? Then you'll be stuck buying the rest and it can get expensive.


I'd personally would rather get more gifts then one gift that costs a ton and I'll never really use. :-)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
