I love white. Our dishes are white and have been for several years. You could always add color later.

A lot of people register for white dinnerware because it is so versatile and timeless. You could always register for a set in a different color and “layer” your place setting, so dinner plate in white and salad plate on top in the color, then a bowl in white.

@Mrs. Fireworks:  versatile and timeless

This.  I have white dishes and have since I picked my own out in undergrad.  You can dress them up or down and they don’t do out of style.  I’m a big fan of white dishes

White is classic and will never go out of style.  We’re registering for a mix of plain white and white with a blue band from Williams Sonoma, and I currently have MSE white dishes that will get donated or passed on.

I did square white everyday stuff from C&B and I love it!

I’ve always had white and don’t get “sick” of them, but I still wanted a change. We registered for this set for every day use. (It can come in many colors, we chose Graphite)

We also decided we didn’t want fine china, but still wanted another set for “nice” and occasional use, so we registered for this set below.

Personally I like plain white dinnerware much better than colorful plates. If you want color, get funky placemats and/or charger plates, but the plates you picked are great! I <3 Crate & Barrel

I love white dinnerware, especially when it has beading like the set you have pictured in the OP.

@MsJ2theZ:  I think it’s a great idea to skip the china, although I guess it depends on the person. My sister just returned her set of 12 fancy china 2 years after her wedding and got $1700 back! She never used it and never wanted to use it.

I like the idea of still having a “nicer” set, although both my sets are the same price. If a plate breaks, it’s not the end of the world cause it wasn’t $100!

I love white dinnerware and we have squared for formal and round for casual. I love when restaurants use white dinnerwear as it often showcases the food better and doesn’t detract from the food’s appearance. Plus, you can use them with any table setting/linens/occasion/etc. If you pick really basic plates (like we have the plain squared CB stuff), then if you break/lose some pieces, it’s probably easier to replace, even if it is from another brand, as compared to a design. Some of my white plates/dinnerwear I’ve had longer than my SO!
