smyled:  we had disposable silver plasticware at our wedding. It held up. The plates look nice and sturdy. You might be able to ask for a sample to try out  to be sure.

I was just at Costco and they have nice white plastic ones, $17 for 50 ( 25 dinner and 25 dessert) or they have the clear cut crystal ones for $10 for 50 ( same ). Its actually extremely common in my area to use these so nobody bats an eye. In other areas it’s probably considered tacky so good luck. Costco has the reflections flatware too. I can’t remember how much off the top of my head but probably cheaper than Amazon.

I just looked at your link and those are the plates Costco carries for $17.

I plan on using plastic and have the same concern, but I don’t think anyone in my circle of family/friends/church members will care.  I think once it’s all together it will look pretty, and I bet yours will too!  Besides, easy clean up!

We used similar plates at our wedding. We got a 40 person set (cups, 2 different sized plates, knives, forks, and spoons) and then we supplemented additional plates from Costco. We set the tables with them and used linen napkins. No one bat an eyelash – some people wanted to take them home and reuse them lol.

smyled:  I was going to use both disposable plates and silverware but my fiance– I mean husband ha-  was worried that the plates would blow away in the wind. I think they probably would have been fine… it wasn’t windy. But he worries. So we ended up renting 1 real plate per person. But we did use disposable silver ware and they looked awesome!!! Check out smartyhadaparty that’s where we got it. And the cake plates were faux from smarty too. Here’s some pix of the silverware

We used Chinet plates, the dreaded plastic cups (clear cause we’re classy like that) and paper napkins from Walmart.  We had real silverware but only because the lodge we rented used to be a restaurant and had a ton.  We were not interested in cleaning up masses of dishware since we were self-catering.  No one cared or if they did, they kept it to themselves.  So convenient, let me tell you.

Obviously it would depend on just how stylish your wedding actually is though, how appealing that would look.

I’m going to use plastic! We are catering our own wedding and doing all our clean up before we leave for the hotel that night. So, it’ll be so much easier to be able to just pitch the plates instead of having to worry about either packing them all up or cleaning them ourselves. Plus, drunk people and glassware has just never made sense to me!

Honestly, had I not bought a boat load of beautiful china, real silverware, and hinged our entire wedding around that feel before I realized there were 58 stairs to the front door of the cabin we had our reception in, I probably would have purchased plastic plates and utensils instead. They’re light. No worries of shards of broken plates, etc. No clean up.
