I like simple and classic. Tastes change tend to change over the years. Our china is actually a hand me down from my FI’s grandmother. It’s light blue with tiny daisies all the way around the rim of the plate. They are pretty simple and I’ve always loved daisies. So I’m super excited to get them. They are still in my FMIL’s attic so I don’t have pictures yet.

I like simple and modern – and I wanted something that I could just change the tablecloth and napkins for the different holidays – without major clashing.  Also, I have already inherited my grandmother’s (heavily used) china with a simple silver band around the outside edge.  It seemed silly to register for new china that was so similar, so we opted for the vera wang gilded weave.

I like simple but slightly contemporary in a clean fashion. I didn’t register for real china, though.

We’re registering for a mix of Wedgwood Gilded Leaf and Wedgwood Lace Gold — both of them are in the vera wang line for Wedgwood. So pretty to mix and match.

Based on the answers thus far….I think you should register for something in the Vera Wang Gilded collection – it’s 50% of the responses! 🙂

Hobochic,

Our china looks good together.  We should get together to host dinner parties.  🙂  haha

He likes simple and classic – I like something with some more flair. So we went with Federal Platinum. It is very simple, but they have some awesome accent plates you can add for some flair!

I am sorry to follow the trend but I went the Vera Wang route as well. I chose the classic Grosgrain pattern. I love the platinum finish. I didn’t stick with the matching crystal and flatware though. I changed that portion up to add a touch of whimsy.

Hmmm… now I think I need to add a third china to our registry.  Platinum edging, here I come!  ha! 

I’d always thought I’d want the platinum banding, but when we went to the Wedgwood factory/museum here, most of the patterns we loved were gold.  Strange.

Caro, one thing I’d advise is definitely go to some stores, to see the patterns in person, rather than just going off the pictures you find online.  What you like on the screen may be quite different than what you like on the table in front of you.  Good luck!

jhphi – I agree!    I believe your gilded leaf is shown as the accent plate in some of the photos for my china – a perfect match!
