Wedgewood, Apilco, or PB dinnerware?

I know this topic has been discussed somewhat, but I could really use some help selecting my "fine" dinnerware. I want all white dinnerware that I can mix with seasonal/holiday accent plates (most likely porcelain plates from C&B/PB).

I'm getting married next month and currently I have Wedgewood White on my registry and so far I have received 2 place settings of it. I really love the Wedgewood white, but as pervious posters have mentioned it is very white. I recently purchased some accent plates from Crate & Barrel and unfortunately they look slightly off when next to the WW. I'm contemplating taking the WW off my registry and going with something else instead.

While I recognize that bone china is superior to porcelain, I think that porcelain may be the better choice. At Pottery Barn the other day I noticed their PB White dishes and I thought they looked quite nice. Does anyone have any experience with these dishes, do they hold up? Apilco was mentioned in a previous post, but they are more than the Wedgewood. Are they really worth it? They are touted as indestructible, are they thick and clunky as a result?

Any other fancy white dinnerware suggestions? I would prefer something not made in China and I already have Fiestaware for my everyday dinnerware. Thanks!
