    I’ve only ever loved Corelle and that’s what I would have registered for if we had a registry.

    @takemyhand:  Corelle is made of Vitrelle, so it is a listed option. 

    I LOVE our Corelle. We have one set now- how to describe it? Single- line arcs. We’re registered for a second set that is double-line arcs. 

    I grew up with porcelain and broke not a few dishes over the years. Fiance had a spare set of stoneware the past two years that I’ve hated. It’s really heavy, his specifically is a horrid 1980s pattern as well. Oh and all of it has chips. Also, although stoneware keeps food hot, it lurked keeps the plate super hot. I have burned my fingers and lap (snacking in front of tv) many times.

    I got Denby stoneware as well!  I grew up with stonewear, so that’s where I gravitated to I think.  I have never noticed it getting hot, unless I put it in the oven for that purpose. It was quite expensive (more expensive than some China!), but it seems like it will wear like iron and last forever so it was worth it 🙂

    We have the Sophie Conran for Portmeirion line as our casual/everyday dishes.  I love it because we have half of our settings as white and half in the celedon color.  We also have lots of the coordinating serveware.  Love it.

    I registered for Lenox French Pearl dishes from Home Outfitters. I think they are so pretty! We registered for two sets of dishes  and so far only one has been purchased from the registry.

    We both love Corelle!  We are doing away with our mismatched plates and registering for a new pattern:

    Our old “just got our own place, can’t spend a fortune” set are Corelle. We’ve had them for almost 6 years and have abused the crap out of ’em but there’s not a single chip to be found.

    Our new set is porcelain which surprisingly has been pretty resilient, too. I thought for sure that I was going to have two broken plates a few nights ago when I smashed them together on accident but they’re still perfect and in one piece. We registered for two seperate sets to make the coordinated look. One set is the black band and the other is the damaskish patern. I love how they look together.

    We have Pottery Barn Emma dinnerware which I believe is earthenware (no idea what earthenware actually is)

    We registered for stoneware.  Here are pics.  They’re the same line and the same finish and color (though it’s a bit hard to tell from these pics).  We wanted something modern and simple so I could “dress” up the table with colored linens and funky serveware!

    I LOVE corelle.  I love how light weight it is and how small it stacks.  My husband had a set of stoneware that I replaced with Corelle.   It was much too heavy and bulky for everyday use to me.  I’ve recently (well after the wedding) grown a liking to how pretty China is, but it’s impractical for us and we’d never us it or want to spend that kind of money on dishes.

    We registered for Maison from Crate and Barrel.  We have our full 10 sets already and I absolutely LOVE them.  I love the plain white; it makes my ‘creations’ look so darn classy!
