In our pattern, there was the option for the accent salad plate (which was dark gray) instead of the regular salad plate. If you want to match up different settings, I’d go see them in person and make sure the plates really do match up

I think that the accent salad plate is sort of a pre-established mix and match thing – a plate that goes with the rest of your china rather than matching exactly.  However I am sort of china challenged – I have my grandmother’s china in service for 12 and that predates these sort of modern ideas.  If you want to know anything about replacing single pieces in really old sets of china, I am the queen of that.

They are the same thing, just a different amount of decoration on them. You would pick one or the other, not both. The salad plate will have the same decoration as your main entree plate. typically a narrow band around the rim. The accent salad plate has a bolder design (sometimes a wider band or a full design on the entire plate) so if you want to take your pattern to a bolder level, choose the accent plate.

We registered for FC yesterday and didn’t go with the accent plate, mostly because we chose the 5 piece settings (packaged) and not individually priced plates, to avoid that "Great we got 5 dinner plates and 6 tea cups…now what" afterwards, we know we won’t get the whole set for our wedding and are not yet positive we’ll be abel to buy the rest of it after ourself.

I liked the accent plate for our set (which is ballet ribbon by waterford in the black and white) but it was so much like the rest I would have opted for the charger in our case. 

I think it’s based on what you really want. Go with your gut.
