With my fondness of all things crystal and china, I couldn't wait until the magical day that I got to roam around the department store and choose my patterns for my wedding registry. I dreamed of it for years.
Then the time came for us to register. My fiancee had moved to DC, and we had to register on a weekend he was home visiting me in Florida. On a Sunday after church, we went to Macy's to make all my magical dreams of china, steam wear and silver come true.
An empty stomach and uncomfortable high heels probably didn't get us off to the right start. Then handing off the scanning gun to Josh turned into a blessing and a curse all at the same time. At first, I picked elaborate colors, patterns, florals, scrolls and swirls. Josh did not like any of it. We decided to move on to linens and come back to china later. We spent hours at the store. Finally it came to a point that everything just got so overwhelming. I had a short time frame, pinching high heels, and had become a hungry grumpy girl. I ended up sitting on a display bed in the linen department and Josh would pick something out, show it to me and I would either approve or disapprove. He 100% registered us. My husband picked out EVERYTHING! But it turns out he was able to find things that we both love. I like that I have a "clean slate," so I can decorate with fun table linens, centerpieces and accent plates!
Our everyday china is Mikasa Antique White.
