Tips for registering for dinnerware
Before you head out to register for your wedding gifts, here are some things to keep in mind.
1. Determine how many settings to register for by asking yourself – how often do you plan on entertaining? How many guests would you anticipate to host? Six to eight place settings is a good place to start, but I would err on the higher end and even consider registering for twelve settings. You never know when you’ll want to go bigger.
2. Sit down with your fiancé and determine your combined style. Many couples these days are coming into relationships with their own full set of dinnerware. Do you want to combine the two? Start from scratch? What look and feel do want? Discussing this before you register is a good idea.
3. Once you have figured out your style, you’ll need to decide whether to register for two settings: one formal, one everyday. Couples these days are more often opting for one nicer everyday set. According to POPSUGAR, a place setting consists of: dinner plate, salad plate, bread & butter plate, and cup & saucer – soup bowls are usually not part of the setting, but also make a nice addition to the registry.
4. Good Housekeeping recommends couples not fall into the “trend” trap by registering for pieces that fall into “traditional,” “contemporary” or “classic” design category. The last thing you want to do is load up on dinnerware that you’ll fall out of love with in a few years.
