I am trying to decide on my wedding china pattern and I think I have it narrowed down to two styles, but am having trouble deciding and would love opinions. :0
Style one is “Grace Avenue” by Kate Spade:
I like this one because it’s fun and I like polka dots and I think it would display well, I also think polka dots have stood the test of time so it won’t look ridiculous in 20 years.
Style two is “Larabee Road” by Kate Spade:
I like this one because of the grosgrain details, and I like the bow because my wedding dress also has a bow so it would maybe always remind me of the wedding, it also is maybe more timeless than the polka dots but who knows.
I like them both a lot, my fiance prefers the bow (which SHOCKED me because I feel like it’s pretty girly), but he doesn’t really care either way.
My style generally tends to lean toward vintage and quirky.. fun but off beat. I buy a lot of things at anthropologie. 😉 With that being said, most of the china patterns bored me so I am totally stumped I found two that I like.
Opinions please! 🙂 If anyone have either of these what do you think?

I LOVE the 2nd set with the polka dots but I voted for #1 only because I feel like it’s a little more traditional and when I think China, I think traditional. However, like you said you have a quirky and fun style so if you think it’s appropriate for your personality then I would totally go with #2. Sorry, I doubt that helps you at all.

I love the polka dots. You can mix and match them with other patterns or plain dishes and it will look great.
Not loving the bow at all. I think it looks too….chunky and not very refined. Maybe if the ribbon was thinner…

- Wedding: March 2012 - Zama Beach Club, Isla Mujeres, Mexico
One of our friends that weren’t able to come to the wedding bought us a set of fine china from kate spade. It has polka dots also, but it looks more like confetti 😀
I voted for the polka dots…Im a sucker for them.

Out of those two patterns my vote is for the kate spade with the bow! I think it is a bit more classic looking compared to the polka dots. Keep in mind that this something you’ll have for many years to come. Therefore, choose a pattern you wont tire of. Have you seen Vera Wang’s place setting with the polka dots? They are a bit more subtle.

I’m obsessed with polka dots so I’m biased. I wanted to register for larabee road but I thought my fiance wouldn’t go for it so I picked something more practical and durable…he broke one of my regular plates and I was po’d, I can’t imagine if he broke my china!
