Ohh, I like your everyday dishes, girly! Such lovely taste you have.

Hmm, well, in that case I think I’d go with the Grosgrain! I warn you, I’m not tooootally unbiased; I’m registered for Vera Wang’s Lace pattern. The outter edge of the dinner plates look identical to the Grosgrain ones, if I remember correctly. So I really like it a lot!

I love the Vera also, but I tend to regret it when I buy things that are trendy. I almost always wish I had bought the more classic, timeless, “plain” thing than the flashier thing.

For example, I have 1 billion cheapie purses that float around in my closet, and a few trendy expensive purses too! I never carry them. I carry 3 or 4 designer, “plain”, purses every day. I think that simple, elegant things stand the test of time. I would rather have china like the Kilberry that will not ever look dated.

hmm I’m torn here. I like the Vera Wang one (didnt even know she made china to be honest!) but I like the idea of getting something simple you can dress up. My mom and grandma have all kinds of metal and china chargers. My great grandmother even had 8 silver ones. They would change the look of the china instantly and it was fun to see them add in new accent plates with the main dinner plate. So I kind of like the killbarry one for that reason. Sorry I’m no help! Whatever you decide will be awesome.

The Kilbarry was actually my favorite out of all 4 until someone mentioned it being plain and looking everyday.. which I realized is a little true. So my new favorite out of the bunch is the Vera Wang Grosgrain though the cup is not my favorite. It seems a little 1950’s morning coffee to me but then, it depends on what you’re looking for in a tea/coffee cup 🙂

I don’t know much about china, but I pick Waterford Kilbarry because I love the little cup!

I pick Waterford.

China has been the hardest thing I’ve had to choose for the wedding. I am still deciding. I tend to like either simple modern designs or elaborate over the top ones. I can’t decide which way to go. I need 2 fine china patterns!

I like the 2nd one – pretty and classic will go well with everything and everyone.  No Fiance can say no to that!  Also you didnt post prices – that originally determined our selection.  We ended up getting heriloom china and didnt register for any but I love yours!

It looks like you already decided, but I just wanted to say that we registered for the Grosgrain and I LOVE it.  It is actually quite classic (because of the simple platinum and white), and can be mixed up with other dishes for more color/zing.  :o)

Yes, it goes in the dishwasher.  That was FH’s #1 requirement.
