Creating your wedding registry is one of the most fun activities to check off your wedding planning list (right up there with cake tasting!). But given that you can register for just about anything, just about anywhere, figuring out where to register for your wedding can be a bit overwhelming. That's why we've compiled all of the best brands, small and large, across all categories. Next up: china! We're talking casual plates, formal china, and everything in between. So sit back, relax, and start adding these pretty products to your registry.
5 Best Universal Registries for China
With Amazon's universal registry, you can add items to your list that weren't found on their site. But we have a feeling you'll be able to curate a great selection of plates of every style without ever navigating off their site.
With a Zola registry, you can register for over 50,000 gifts, experiences, and funds, all in one place. You can also add gifts from any other store onto your Zola registry. Plus, they have a huge selection of curated china brands at every price point.
NewlyWish is a registry aggregate that combines their curated list of stylish products, experiences, and honeymoon excursions with offsite products. That means you can pick and choose items from different retailers and still register for the funds to go on your dream getaway. Easy as pie to grab your favorite blue-and-white china from one brand, and your favorite everyday white plates from another brand, and compile them onto one easy list!
Prefer to pick and choose one-of-a-kind gifts from unusual boutiques (for those speciality earthenware handmade plates you've be lusting after) around the Internet vs. big box store (for your favorite traditional and everyday china)? Luckily, with MyRegistry, you can do just that, plus even register for non-tangibles, such as skydiving sessions.
This unique online registry lets you add products to one list from big box retailers or from your favorite local store. You can search for and add gifts by room (head to the dining room for all your china needs), designate pricier items as a group gift, or even register for cash-based gifts like a honeymoon fun, date nights, or a fund for your favorite charity.
