@Coral99:  Thank you! It’s Lenox by Marchesa (or the other way around, not sure). I absolutely love yours as well. Love super patterny china!

I lose my shit every time I see the Lenox Bellina Gold collection.

It’s not super simple so it does carry the risk of style regrets but I can’t justify registering for simple white china (even with a small, tiny pattern) because those remind me too much of every day dishes so….what’s the point?  I really love gold though – it’s in my wedding and all over my house.

I also love blue and white China!  Mine is a bit more “untraditional” but we do like the colour and the pattern.  I think later on in life, since we love hosting, we’ll get another set that coordinates with this one

My set is the Marchesa by Lenox. I love the contrast of the black plate. 🙂

I love my mikasa “antique white” casual china. What I love is that it is real bone china but is also super strong. I can microwave it (& it doesn’t burn my had like cheap dished). I can also put it in the oven and in the dishwasher. I use it everyday!

Speaking as another bride who could not decide on a china pattern even after the wedding (I lost track of how many times I changed our registry!), I ended up going with Lenox Venetian Lace.  I absolutely love many of the more colorful and modern patterns out there, but was worried about how much I would still like them in a few decades.  I also really wanted the footed tea cup, but ultimately decided to go with the dinner plate I liked best because that’s what we’ll probably be using the most.  I don’t know how often we’ll actually use the teacups, but if you can find coordinating patterns you could always get teacups from a different set (Lenox Opal Innocence Stripe would work well in my case).  So if you’re still struggling to make up your mind, try isolating the piece you’ll be seeing the most from the rest of the set.  That’s what helped me settle on Venetian Lace (classic, but not too plain, and I love the lattice pattern more than the lace pieces) and not on Waterford Padova (beautiful and with footed cup, but the dinner plate is a little too boring for my taste).  Hope that helps!
