As you're completing your registry, you may be in the now-common debate over whether or not to add wedding china to your list.  Sliiiiightly impractical (unless you host a myriad of dinner parties), but oh so beautiful, wedding china sets are a favorite gift.  You definitely don't have to be boring here.  There's a pattern for every taste and color.  Here are a few of my favorite finds this week:

 

Aegean White by L'Objet

Balcons de Guadalquivir by Hermes

by Jenny Bryde 12. May 2014 00:47

This blog post might be more for your guests as they start the hunt for the perfect wedding gift for you and your fiance.  Are you the couple that seems to have everything you need?  Are your guests having to get creative when it comes to finding the perfect gift?  Today I've put together a collection of great his and hers gifts for the couple that needs a little laugh.  These gifts would be great for an engagement party, bridal shower, or even the actual wedding gift.  Not too cutesy, not too cliche, I hope you love them!  All of the gift ideas featured today have "his and hers" as the inscription, but you could just as easily have these ordered with the couple's specific names instead.  Too much fun!
