The Passing Down of Heirlooms: Wedding Registries.

I have recently realized that in 20 years, our generation may not have any heirlooms to pass along to their children and grandchildren! 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?
