I have 2 full sets and my FH has a bunch of random dishes. We usually eat dinner off my more casual set. But if we are eating alone we’ll eat off one of his randoms or a paper plate. 

As far as cups go, that’s a little more random. I have a huge selection of barware and he has a relative who works with a beverage distribution, so our drinkware looks like a restaurant’s.

We just registered for houseware stuff so when we get married and start living together we will have matching dishes.

Most are from the same “set” but it is a coordinated set, so not every piece is identical in pattern, though they are all solid white. I like the way they show off the color and texture of meals. They are easy to mix and match with my serving dishes. Those are from a variety of places.

We have three different sets of dishes.  All of which are neutral in color but they certainly do not match.  They are white and taupe in color.  Two sets are from Pottery Barn and one set came with my Fiance.

We had two dish sets until we married. His were green and ivory, mine were white. After the wedding we purchased a black and blue set to match our home and donated the old ones. He designed pint glasses unfortunately, there is a naked woman silihouette on them that is too close to looking like me. Company, especially family, will never see those. The coffee mugs are mismatched to different workplaces, universities, ect. I prefere not to use the ones that match the dishes.

Ours are not a “set” but all are matching open stock from Williams Sonoma.  Plus some coordinating nut/condiment/latte bowls from other sources.

I need cereal/soup bowls.  All I have are shallow soup plates.  But I put off buying them because it means making room for them & my kitchen is small.

My SO and I live together, and we have 3 sets of mismatched dishes. We have an all white set (we have like 4 dinner plates, 5 salad plates, 3 bowls, and 2 mugs). We have a more formal white and light blue floral set from my grandmother (with teacups, saucers, plates and kind of a salad plate soup bowl mix). And we have a cheapy set from Walmart that is hand glazed. It’s a dark brown and turquoise blue with a hint of a light brown/yellowy color, and that’s the only full set. We have some more mismatched bowls, and a lot of mismatched glasses and mugs. When we get out of the apartment lifestyle and into our home, we’ll get stuff that matches and go from there, because we want to get a feeling for what the kitchen/dining room will be like before we make a commitment on a certain set of dinnerware.

We have a matching set of BHG plates and bowls that we bought when we first moved in together. They are pretty but I’m currently working on upgrading (I am OBSESSED with Pioneer Woman bowls) and we are going to register for a few more pieces from her collections to match. We have a set of matching drinkware that we use for company but our cup cabinet is full of randoms (souvenir cups and all).

socalgirl1689 :  my bowls and plates match – they’re 1970s-ish crazy daisy Corelle which I acquired when one of my parents’ tenants with no family passed away.  Everything else, not so much.  My mugs are randoms from gifts – I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a mug in my life.  My glassware is handblown by a friend back where I’m from and all mismatched, plus some glasses that we’ve acquired from grandparents and the like.  Silverware came from a storage unit sale, I think, but is a matching set.  And I have a set of awesome crockery soup and side bowls that everyone should own, but don’t match anything else.

All of our dishes are from one matching set.  We registered for a new set when we got married and donated all of the mis-matched stuff.

Our everyday dishes are openstock- white Ikea 365.  If you chip or break one, you can get another. They also have coordinating colors like grey, turquoise, black, so I can add an accent color if I choose.
