    Waterford – b/c they look so much alike I can barely tell the difference and it’s $65 cheaper per setting which means you’re likely to either get more settings or if you don’t get all 12-16 that you should get, it won’t cost you that much to finish the set.  Plus, if the settings are that much cheaper, the rest of what you need will be, too.  It’s a HUGE difference in price for nearly no difference in look.  Plus, I love Waterford everything.

    ETA:  This is actually the one I’m looking at and looks very similar to both, but is only $90 per setting, plus BBB always has 20% off coupons:  http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=104294 It’s called Lenox Solitaire.

    I would have to agree with mrskopp2be . They are so similar it’s not worth getting the Wedgwood that is so much more expensive for a set.

    I prefer the first one, I like how the trim is a lighter shade than the second one πŸ™‚

    get the cheaper one. so what if it has limited other things like vegetable dishes. that’s where you can find other china patterns that ‘match” but don’t necessarily match.  that’s what will make your table look unique.  have fun. not everything has to match.

    I liked 2 better. Didn’t look at prices. I liked the shape of the cup more. But since they’re so similar, I’d go with the cheaper one, unless one is of better quality than the other when seen in person.

    Don’t worry, I don’t think they look the same πŸ™‚ I like the first one better, it’s sort of softer looking wheras the second is a bit harsh and heavy.  Wow I sound crazy to myself!

    The second one is bolder which to me is therefore trendier is will look more dated later. The first, because the lines are softer looks a bit more traditional and therefore I think you will be happier with it in later years.

    Plus cheaper is always better. πŸ™‚

    I didn’t look at the prices and picked #2, then read the rest of the thread. (Figures, I *always* end up preferring the most expensive option… :/ )

    But I don’t think they’re so different that it matters, and if #1 is significantly less than #2, and you like them about equally, go with the more affordable one. If you’re worried about  serving dishes, look for a different-but-complementary pattern that has the additional pieces you want. (My sister had to do this when her pattern was discontinued.)
