If you have followed my blog at all, you have often heard me extol the virtues of plain white china. It can be found pretty cheap and gives you a lot of leeway in your tablescapes/linens/china/glassware.
My ideal white china is one that I discovered from a friend years ago (she wisely registered for it as her everyday china when she married). Wedgwood White is a beautiful plain white china with no adornments. It's not especially cheap, but for wedding china, it's not out of reach. It's dishwasher safe, but isn't big and bulky like stoneware is. I wish I had registered for this pattern also. I'll emphasize: if you only think you will get one set of wedding china, choose this one.
The real beauty of a pattern like this one is that you can use it in a breakfast room or a formal dining room. It can go with funky linens or monogrammed napkins. Formal or casual. Sterling or stainless. It makes no difference. The elegant lines of this china look good with it all.
