Currently, I am registered for the Lenox Vibe dinnerware at BBB. I love them, but they are only available from BBB. DF’s family lives in a smaller town that does not have a BBB so we are also registering at Belk, but Belk does not carry Lenox Vibe.
I am considering changing to Mikasa Antique White because they are available in store at both of the places we have registered. Also, they are about $10 cheaper per place setting which is great. Dear Fiance thinks the Lenox set is too expensive.
Mikasa Antique White
I love them both for different reason. I feel the Lenox set is more unique and modern, and the Mikasa set is very classic.

I like the Mikasa set SO MUCH more! Plus, it’s cheaper! 😉 I’d change it if I were you. They look fancier to me.

Mikasa Antique White!! My friend has these and they hold up beautifully and they’re gorgeous. We are going with Mikasa Italian Countryside =). My friend loves her Mikasa and after she talked to me about it I looked into it and fell in love w/the Italian countryside style.

Go for the one with wider availability. I chose a pattern that is somewhat obscure and I’ve only only gotten a few pieces as a result.

I love the Mikasa Antique White. They are so classic and could look fancy or casual.

The other good thing about Mikasa is they have additional stuff you can buy from the Mikasa website.
For example, they have Christmas plates/mugs you can add on that match: http://www.mikasa.com/Antique-White/antique-white,default,sc.html#http://www.mikasa.com/Christmas-Outlet/christmas_clearance,default,sc.html?prefn1=pattern&prefv1=antique-white
So if you wanted to fancy them up more for the holidays you could.
Italian Countrysid (the ones we’re registered for) have holiday plates and some spring flower add on plates. So it helps give them a new look =)
