    I would say register for what you really want.  You can always get a nice white set later.  I saw a beautiful Mikasa set at Ross for $50.00 on Saturday.   I always have my basic white service for 12 but I do have a set that matches my kitchen decor as well.

    SimTeam:  I would register for the basic white set and register for the Portofino salad plate instead of the dinner plate. That way you can mix and match the place settings. You can also, over time, buy other salad plates that you can layer depending on the season or the occasion.

    The Nico bowl and Copa Sangria glass are already on clearance so if you really want it I would either buy it yourself or request for Christmas presents. I doubt it will still be available at the time of your wedding.

    You can get white dishes at Target.  In fact, they sell really nice white dishes at Target- I have a ton! So, I say register for the one fun ones.

    I’d get the white set.  I have an amazing bone china white set for everyday and it is the best purchase I’ve ever made for my kitchen and serveware since you can microwave it, bake it, throw it in the dishwasher, whatever, and it is very hard to scratch.  White also mixes well with other sets so you can definitely add the portofino when you want to mix things up a bit without replacing the whole set, or like Jules said mix in seasonal settings or what have you.  

    Bonus: White looks great with any tablecloth or table decor you choose (even the table itself, we have a dark wood table and the white pops against it, but it would also match light wood, metal, granite, etc.), so you never have to worry about making sure everything flows nicely.
