5 of the best: Dinnerware Collections (Wedding China)

Choosing your 'Wedding China' is one of the many decisions you will make when deciding on your wedding registry when creating your new life together. Even if you have been living with your partner for some time it is unlikely that you will own a dinner set as special or as meaningful as this.
With this in mind I have compiled a few of my personal favourites.

Only the dinner sets are pictured however each design is accompanied by a large range of platters, frames, teapots, serving bowls and in some cases crystal glassware.
