    @gingerkitten:  How are getting this stuff to Italy?  Where will it be stored until the wedding?  The additional headaches and logistics involved make me more likely to veto the idea.

    Chargers are only on the table for a short time. Typically, they are removed BEFORE dinner is served. You can certainly direct your caterer to leave them on the table until after dinner is over, but that still leaves dessert, dancing and the rest of the night with a less decorated table.

    I think that ornate runners/tablecloths/overlays are more worth the price because they are around all night and cost about the same (sometimes less) per person.

    I would totally get nice chargers if I were having such an intimate wedding. For 150 people, we got slightly nicer china. :p

    I thought the chargers at my wedding made a big difference in the tablescape. I like the ones you picked, but that is a lot to carry on a flight. What if your luggage gets lost? Just seems like a big expense and hassle honestly.

    @gingerkitten:  I think they are unncessary. The beauty of the Italian food should be your focus! I’d spend that extra $150 on a food upgrade!

    I was going to say ditch them till I saw that its a small wedding and how different they are than the typical chargers. GO for it !
