Grout spacing for wavy edged subway tile. Shower Walls. 3 x 12

Trying to determine the best grout line spacing and layout for our new subway tile walls. We found these tiles:

...and really love them vs traditional subway tiles, however they present a bit of a tough choice. I like 1/16 spacing since we will have a darker grout:

...but these have wavy edges and space to approximately 1/16 inch when stacked already.





That would look perfect except I doubt I can pull off the grout job with the wavy nature of the edges. Should I pop another 1/16" spacer in there and end up with a variable 1/8" grout line?
