We have an old set of Mikasa China for our everyday use. I had it before I even met my husband. It’s held up really well over about 10 years, lots of use, and several moves. It’s simple, but classic.

 

We picked Kate spade liberty lane as our wedding China pattern. We liked its simple design and thought it would age well. So far we  still really like it!

Ambi D :  

This is what we picked for our wedding China. We didn’t really follow any guides. The brand is denby which is a reliable brand but other than that we just picked the pattern we like. I wasn’t too worried about liking it in 20 years because in trying to pick something ‘timeless’ I just didn’t really like the patterns. So we picked something we like now and in 20 years it’ll just reflect what we liked when we got married.

I picked Lenox Ferderal Gold as our wedding China. I wanted something simple and classic but not so expensive that no one would buy it. This fit the bill and so far I like it!

 

I also really love this Lenox Indigo Watercolor but H vetoed 😩

We have a service for 12 and all the serving pieces in Royal Worcester Gold Chantilly which I inherited. I love it because it is simple and elegant and can be use with any color in any season.

For everday we use Ikea 365 because they are easily rpelaced. We use white because food loooks best on white, but we also have accent plates in blue and grey as they bring in new colors occasionally.

This is what I have (although stock image) Villory & Boch, twist alea. Super fun and colorful without being too kiddish, IMO

 

Everyday use, dishwasher safe.

I use Mikasa Antique White for everything. It has held up beautifully to 11 years of daily use and can be dressed up or down to fit any occasion.

We are going with the Bernardaud Constance collection.

I like that they’re classic but not boring.

For quality, there are a few well-known, trusted brands: Lenox, Noritake, Villeroy and Bosch, Mikasa, Wedgewood… I remember reading the pros and cons of bone vs porcelain china. I can’t remember why I ended up choosing porcelain, but I’d look up the differences because I remember there were reasons to choose one or the other depending on your preferences/use cases. I debated between fine and casual china and decided to go for casual as I figured that would be the most useful in the immediate term. I loved this pattern and have Scandinavian heritage so it fit: http://noritakechina.com/sandefjord.html Note: I thought 8 settings would be plenty since I figured we wouldn’t be hosting dinner parties with more than 3 other couples, but then we hosted Easter buffet-style brunch for our friends and 8 was definitely not enough plates so I’m going to order more, and I’d recommend registering for 16 settings.
