So, I was super excited when I was setting up our registry. I’ve been dying to have a nice set of everyday dinnerware. What we have now is one of these cheesy Corelle sets. They are super durable and great but it’s 10+ years old and has stains all over them! I wanted big adult plates! Hehe.
We wanted something super simple and modern. No square for the real set because I want something that will last a bit so I’m afraid square will be out in 5 years. But I’m definitely registering for square serving platters etc.
This is the set we registered for (FI was picky!) from West Elm:
I love it because I wanted to register for individual pieces and not the whole set. We have more than enough coffee cups. I don’t really need a set of coffee cups!
I love the simple organic shape.
What dinnerware set did you register for?

OK, you plain dinnerware girls. Come out of the woodwork! 😛

Haha, weird no one has responded! Must have gotten lost in a sea of posts 🙂
I haven’t registered yet, but I absolutely love Denby!

I’m too busy hating you for posting West Elm. 😉
Sorry, I have a love affair with almost everything in that store. Unfortunately, no one attending our wedding (with the exception of one of my cousins, maybe) knows what West Elm even is.
We have not registered yet, but my favorite cake stand ever that I bought in December is Pottery Barn’s Emma, which has matching dinnerware:

This is the dinnerware that we registered for from BB&B:
Colorwave Chocolate Dinnerware by Noritake

We did Rehearsal Dinner Countess for formal and Corelle Kobe for everyday

We registered for plain dinnerware too – Claire from C&B. We wanted something simple that will be ok for everyday dinnerware, but that can be dressed up for nice occasions. You don’t see it in the picture, but it has thin lines carved in circles around the rim so it has a little texture. And we also just registered for the pieces we need, rather than a set.

If it makes you feel any better we don’t have a whole West Elm registry! Just a couple items here and there -namely the dinnerware set- on our online MyRegistry.
My thoughts exactly. Casual enough for everyday. Nice enough to dress up for holiday dinners. 🙂
VERY nice choices ladies!

I absolutely love white dinnerware. we love to cook and find that white dishes are just the simpliest when you want your focus to all be on the yummy food!
I also love bone china for everyday dinnerware. the most we can use it the better i figure!
We registered for Fusion White by Royal Doulton.

Ouch, we registered for Corelle. . .I didn’t think it was cheesy! 🙂 Actually we got a lot of compliments on it already (we got some at my shower). I think one of the bees registered for the same sets.
We didn’t register for china, all our parents and grandparents said they never used theirs, and we’d have no place to put it anyway!

We did not register for fine china. Here is the everyday set that we registered for! It’s noritake colorwave in blue! Friends of our who got married two years ago have this set and they love it!

@Brianalaura – we did corelle too for our everyday (photos above), and I’ve gotten more compliments on that than i have on our formalware!

@twalila the newer options have really nice patterns! Yours was actually my second favourite. I was surprised because a lot of my friends insisted they also want to get Corelle. I guess when you grow up in a house where you remember dropping plates and them not breaking, you want the same! 🙂
