    I’d go for the crate and barrel… I was in a similar situation and I just don’t see the point of fine china. How often would I use it? I basically saw it as fine china vs. all the stuff I could have if people weren’t spending their entire gift on 1 setting…. easy decision.

    I think #2 is still really pretty and could look great on fancy occasions!  I did make china a bulk of my registry, but I really wanted it!  I felt like it was something special in my childhood.  So make your registry about what you really want…if it’s other stuff and frugality, pick #2…it’s beautiful!

    Okie dokie.  Here’s the skinny:

    I have fine china coming my way too.  You use it for Dinner parties and Christmas (if you’re throwing a big, nice dinner) etc.  You’re right, it own’t be used often – but I do believe everyone should have atleast ONE set.  More than one, pushing it (unless you throw “nice dinner parties” often).

    So, if you’re inherited a set, my first question is “Do you like it?”  If the answer is “no” – then register for some.  If the answer is “yes” – then I’d wait.  I was all excited to receive fine china from my grandmother (who has talked about this set since I have like 5 yrs old lol)  I finally got it, love it!  (have not used it yet in about 2 yrs)

    lol  But, I were to choose – I like the 1st one.

    C&B’s White Pearl was what I origianlly registered for because we were planning on using it for both formal and everyday use. Because it doesn’t have banding it’s microwave safe (a necessity for everyday dishes). It’s a beautiful pattern although, once I saw it in the store I didn’t like the rimmed cereal bowl. I like a regular rimless bowl to eat my cereal out of, but that’s just me. I ended up registering for Denby’s Lucille in Gold for everyday and Vera Wang’s Golden Grosgrain mixed with Bernardaud’s Constance for formal. If you’re on the fence I’d say go with the White Pearl. It sounds like you would get more use out of this pattern than the Lace Couture.
