I’m trying to collect mis-matched bone china sets for our wedding reception. Our date is July 2013. If anyone has any sets they can rent or sell, I am highly interested. Or, I would appreciate any suggestions as to where I can find some good pieces.

@luna14: bone china? That will be a little more difficult to hunt down (and more expensive) but I recommend searching ebay.

@luna14: You should probably hunt around and see if there are any wedding rental places that have this type of stuff. Here in Portland, I know of two off the top of my head, so try googling it.

If you can’t find any to rent, check Ruffled, 100 Layer CaKe Marketplace, Weddingbee Classifieds, eBay, Craigslist, and your local thrift stores. You can also Google estate sales near you, that’s a great way to buy china for cheap. You can a write a post on your llocal board on Weddingbee and The Knot asking if any other brides are selling china from their own weddings – that way you don’t have to pay for shipping!

@Mrs. Wallaby: Great advice, especially if the OP is in the US. It’ll be more difficult because you are looking for bone china (not just china). Good luck!
P.S. For bone china, I’d also suggest (second-ing estate sales) and church bizarres/sales.

@luna14: Hi – I’m in the Indianapolis, Indiana area and I have mix-match vintage china for rent at a very reasonable $0.50 per plate. Please email me and I’ll send you photos if you’re in my area and interested.

@luna14: Where are you located? I will be selling 400 place settings after my June 1st wedding.
