    We did not register for fine china. We just wouldn't use it enough. We did register for beautiful dinnerware though.

      We didn't register for china. We don't even have a dining room table at the moment! It wouldn't get used and would take up space.

        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

          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. :-)
