I like the Mikasa Swirl 🙂 In all honesty I would suggest that you do go with something that is made of a better quality. We’ve bought dishes before that were on the cheaper end and they just end up breaking. If you want something that is durable and going to last then go with a name brand. In the end you’ll end up saving because you won’t have to keep buying a new set!

I like the Mikasa Swirl, too. Look on Amazon for reviews, that helped us a lot when setting up our registry. There are usually a fair number of reviews listed for common registry products found at stores like BB&B. If you think your guests would buy them for you, go for it! Registering can be a good chance to ask for things you might not buy on your own.

If it helps, for casual dinnerware we registered for this Quattro set. It’s $79.99 for four place settings. I liked it a lot when I saw it in person, and it seems durable enough for everyday:

Our everyday dishes are similar to the previous post-white, square with rounded corners-only we got them at Ikea.

They are Ikea 365.

I registered for these ones at Crate & Barrel for $16.95 for a 4 piece place setting. They’ve gotten really good reviews and seem perfect for everyday use. I have colored plates right now, and am not sure what colors I’ll want when we buy a house next year, so I wanted plain white as well. They’re pretty plain, but very affordable!

We also wanted something casual, but sturdy. The person we spoke with at BB&B recommended something porcelain (not stoneware) because it is more durable but also lightweight. We decided on Sophie Conran 4-Piece Place Setting – White. It’s $50, but considering that we’re not registering for formal china, we thought it was ok.
