If that is what you want to do, then you should do it; however, I am a firm believer that if you use real silverware, you should use real plates and glassware/stemware, especially if you are having a semiformal or formal wedding. If your wedding was a backyard reception, then it might be okay to use the Chinet. You still have a little bit of time, so I think that if you want the real stuff, you probably have enough time to find something in your budget. The caterer should be able to make sure the plates are cleaned up and packed and ready to go for the rental company to pick up.

My first suggestion is to skip Chinet paper plates, and instead spend a little more on nice plastic plates. You can get really nice disposable plastic plates that look almost just like real china. 

(Another alternative are the biodegradable bamboo plates, but they’re more expensive)

That could make real silverware looks less strange.
