    I wish I had returned everything that I wasn’t “sure about.” 🙁

    I’m not really a fan of having plates that I’m too afraid to use. 

    I think the silver song is really pretty, but not particularly timeless if you’re only going to pull it out once a year kinda thing.  And does closeout mean the pattern is being discontinued?  It would suck if you can’t replace pieces in the future.  Unless you have a real attachment to your “wedding china” I’d probably return it.

    I say buy what fits yoru lifestyle. I did not register for china, I register for very nice casual dinnerware as my china, I will not get rid of our current dishes, however this causal new dinnerware will be treated as my nice stuff, but by no means is china. I will use this set more than once a year when hosting a party of 8 people. I did ask for a settting of china for 2 on my christmas list from his parents. They request a christmas list, with ten things or more on it. So I thought, hmmmm china for 2 makes sense just for me and my man. We both can plan speical dinners for just the two of us whenever we please including our anniversary and birthdays. Why have a setting of 10, when a setting of 2 would be used alot more because its all about you and your husband. Even if his parents do not get us this for chirstmas I plan on buying a complete set of china for 2 after the wedding. Using our toastiing flutes and cake and knife server every year as well on our anniversary. I think this is a great compromise.

    I voted return, but I think you should think about finding a china you love and want to use!
