Exaggeration? Yes probably, but when was the last time you attended a wedding where the bride & groom where registered at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and the likes? Now, not that there is anything wrong with being practical (and certainly, I think we all love Target) but I don’t imagine there will be a set of fine china, monogrammed silver flatware, pewter candlesticks or seriously fine crystal stemware to be found in their near future.
I must say one of my most treasured heirlooms is a full set of all-white china – it is my Grandmother & Grandfather’s wedding china. And my GREAT Grandmother and Great Grandfather’s (Nana & Pepe) wedding china is also a family heirloom as well.
I am interested to hear if anyone agrees or disagrees on the lost art of traditional wedding registries?
