I didn't. In 1975, there wasn't enough of a choice. I didn't like the gold or silver band nor wheat for my self. The only pattern I ever saw I loved was a purple hycenith pattern I saw as a child.
I didn't need SS without china.
I was drawn to Franciscian Apple and loved the branch handles and the design. I had been exposed to primitive antiques at this point and was "in love"!
These are just lovely!!

No I did not and never had any regrets about not having china, sterling silver or crystal.
No regrets even moreso now when I read about of people wanting to get rid of theirs and there are no takers.

No, I thought it presumptuous that anyone would want to spend that much on what I considered at the time a frivolous expense.
My sister in law did. When I saw her break a $150 platter and $60 bowl, I knew I made the right decision by not wanting expensive china.
In my 40's, when I finally got the mahogany DR table I wanted, I thought it appropriate to have something more formal to use for my family and guests. Purchased an Imari pattern, but never used it because I was afraid I'd break some of the pieces. There they are in my china cabinet never used.

China and crystal, yes. Sterling silverware, no.
I do use it, but I understand why people no longer want to get involved with it.
At the time, 1983, people registered for that kind of thing, but not the endless list of common things they register for now.

Yes, I registered for China. My pattern is Lenox Montclair. I liked the simplicity of the platinum band and that I could match this to any patterned tablecloth. I didn't register for Silver flatware as my Grandmother gifted a set to me as an engagement present.

@Christie BSame here .(including 1971 -- still waiting to see if it is going to last as a few said they doubted it !
I was married at jp's for $20. My sister made a beautiful cake and threw a shower previously and had a great time. I did purchase a lovely china set incrementally at a grocery that offered it just to be appropriate for the times.
I had a complete set including a gravy boat ( never found a 'gravy' river to sail it on ) I never wanted real silver after seeing my grandmother polish her's for special dinners. I thought ss was a wonderful invention.
I kept the set for a long time and used it for special occasions. I gladly donated it once microwaves came along as it had a metal decoration on it . I felt a bit of sentiment but welcomed the storage space . I love Corelle = lightweight , dw safe , & rarely breaks.
