Now, here me out on this one. I am well aware that many people will try to talk you out of registering for wedding China, but I am here to tell you…Don’t skip it!
Besides your wedding and engagement rings, your wedding China will be your first family heirloom. I’m a sucker for the sentimental, so I love the idea of wedding China even if it seems impractical.
These dishes and serving pieces are something you can enjoy on special holidays. Once life gets busy and more expensive, a nice set of China is probably not something you will ever buy for yourself.
I highly recommend pulling out a few of the dishes and pieces on your wedding anniversaries to have a meal together (even if it’s breakfast).
Plus, I love the idea of someday passing my wedding China down to my kids. Yes, sometimes it’s a real pain to store all of the pieces and after you’ll probably have to hand wash each piece. However, do I still think it’s a beautiful gift? Yes. And do I love seeing all of the dishes and plates on my table for special occasions? Also yes.
Pro Tip: if you are storing the China in its original box, save the cards so you can always remember who purchased each item!
