    @Sunnybrook:  I would go with option 1 if you’re on a budget. And people will expect it to be informal anyway. As long as you replace the cutlery with real silverwear. Cutting up a steak with a plastic knife and fork is really difficult.

    Ok, see if you can rent real plates/flatware on your own and hire someone to clean those plates. Seriously I will come to your wedding and do it for free. That’s a ridiculous fee. Really, I do live in Virginia :). I am able to rent all of my plates,flatware and water glasses for around $2 a person. I just can’t believe it would be $8.99 pp to upgrade

    Also I have been to several weddings recently that used plastic ware at the bar. I thought that would make me crazy but even my caterer said it isn’t worth the added expense b/c you have to stock so many extra glasses as the bartenders can’t predict how many drinks people will get. So we are skipping the bar glassware and I think it is a-ok.
