Perhaps you should return them but only to get a pattern you like better? That way you wouldn’t completely hurt their feelings once they eventually find out, which in my family they would. 

The idea of china might grown on you, especially as you being to entertain and have christmas etc with your family (once you have children etc).

I’d at least trade them for a pattern that I liked. My mom is giving me her china that she and my father got when they were married. I loved it as a kid, not exactly my taste now but it means a lot to me. Fiance really didn’t want to register for china and as it is we can’t even agree on everyday dishes to register for. Since I wanted china I’d trade it for a set that I like but if you don’t want it I’d get the cash.

If I were you I’d trade it in for some nice designer place settings (I got Kate Spade casual diningwear) or something else nice and you’ll still have money left over to put towards other things for your home. I didn’t register for china, I figured nice casual dining stuff could work for everything

Yeah, if you’re going to use these things for many years, you want to have something you’re happy with.  ESPECIALLY since Lenox is not cheap, you don’t want to have a pattern that you’ll want to just hide in the cupboard forever.
