Most caterers I have looked at charge an additional $2-$3 for plastic plates that look like glass and plastic silverware that look like stainless steel.
Anyone know of places I can get this on my own cheaper?

I went to Goodwill and bought genuine china and silverware. Many were still in the original packaging and those that weren’t didn’t appear to ever have been used.

I got dollartree dishes and things from craigslist. They have clear glass dishes, and stoneware. You could sell them after. Also, I found this site after:

Check Costco if you have one near you. They had some beautiful options when I popped in a few weeks ago. You could barely tell the difference!
I also like creativeplannertobee’s idea though. I am considering doing that. Just turn around and sell them to other bride’s here on wedding bee when you’re done!

lewis party supplies (partyatlewis.com) is online and they have a great selection. They delivered super fast too. I bought plates at bed bath and beyond that came with silver finish utensils for serving. I got them half price because they were an xmas item – but i’ve seen the same ones at party city. They also have the metal looking utensils there. I thought they had a nice section of nicer items. I ended up getting the cheapy plastic wine glasses though – I just couldn’t validate spending > $1/per glass for plastic.

I stalked weddingbee classifies & go my flatware for 25 cents a piece, plates I got from IKEA for only 79 cents each, so I will be using this for my dinner & cake. I got my chargers from the dollar store. And drinking cups I got from Target a dozen for 7.99 & I got my wine & champagne at IKEA at a GREAT price also. I know it may have been a little more versus renting BUT imagine if someone breaks a glass, accidently throws away a fork, etc. I’d come off paying just the same with delivery also! Forget it. I plan on selling everything I’ve bought on craigslist & should get some money back. I’m pretty pleased with myself! =)
