    My favourite is the royal doulton set. I like the blue a lot, and its a more classic design. I don’t like the bottom two at all, but thats my personal taste….

    Have you seen Aegean Mist by Noritake? its one that I was considering for our registry until my fiance said it was “boring”

    I like your FI’s pick, but I have been accused of having boring/manly taste in home furnishings. I think it is a simple, classic design that will still look good in 30 years. It’s formal without feeling stuffy.

    I like the Bernardaud. It is unique but timeless and I love the different designs. I chose a more expensive china as well-I know we will use it forever and we use it frequently so it made sense.  Buying individual pieces rather than whole place settings can give guests cheaper options.

    I used to work for Bernardaud, so I am very biased.  I have 2 sets, and love them!  Vegetal is very pretty and you could always mix it with a Bernardaud pattern with a plain gold band… and later accent with other salad plates!  Good luck on your decision!
