Fine china used to be the centerpiece of every wedding registry, with couples spending tons of time in-store picking out their favorite china pattern. But let’s be honest - who really uses fine china more than once or twice a year? Will fine china be on your registry or are you ditching this...

Will fine china be on your registry or are you ditching this tradition?

    I've inherited a few sets and I have no idea where to put those, so probably not. I think I may get new plates and stuff but that would be for daily use.

    I mean, if we find a nice set then sure! But we have a fancy tea set currently and a serving of 8 set, they’re older and look like they came straight out of the 60s but they’re in great condition so why not just keep them? We are asking for new mugs- all of ours are chipped pretty much

    Ditching! We haven't really talked about it, but I'm sure he will agree with me. It would be super pointless for us to have fine china as we would NEVER use it, and it would just sit and gather dust. I would rather put something useful on my registry, and use the space in my house for something much more useful to me than a china cabinet.
