To be honest, I really wrestled with whether or not to register for fine china and when we first began our registry process, I had decided not to. I would tell myself, “Why spend so much money on stuff we won’t use?” But after talking with multiple people, I decided that we should. Not only is it beautiful, but I knew we would never buy it for ourselves, so if we were going to have it, now would be the time. I wanted to be practical about our china and make sure that the prices were reasonable. My mom had already expressed to me that I would be getting her fine china, so I wanted to make sure I chose something that would go well with her collection, which is gold and navy. She has a lot of silver and waterford, so I decided not to register for any myself. I am so happy with what we chose at Quintessentials (View our Registry). I think it’s classic enough to last forever and fancy enough with the lovely gold detailing. While the washing instructions are more delicate, I know it won’t just sit in a cabinet.
Here is what we registered for and received:
10 Bernardaud Soleil Levant Salad Plates
10 Haviland Symphony Gold Dinner Plates
10 Vietri Glass and Gold Ruffle Chargers
10 Vietri Optical Gold Water Glasses
10 Vietri Optical Gold Wine Glasses
*Our immediate families total to 10 people, so I am so happy and thankful that we will be able to set our table for our family dinner or celebration!
