Bridal registries are practically a social requirement for most brides, and for good reasons. It’s exciting for the bride and groom to choose pieces and products they both love and will enjoy for years to come. And most guests want to buy a wedding gift that they can feel confident the couple will cherish. A registry eliminates guesswork, making gift selection simple for friends and family. China and tableware are popular items among registries and the choices today are versatile.
