You know, I am usually all for getting plates and flatware for events, but your venue seems well suited for the disposables-  I think the raffia is a nice touch… just dress up the tables nicely and I think you are in good shape.

i think disposables are ok…keep it casual!  however, they are not environmentally friendly.  have you considered tree-free compostable plates?  bambu offers a pack of 100 for $74-a bit more than paper plates, but not a bank buster.  you could also get tree-free paper plates, they usually run 3.50 for a pack of 25.  corn-based plasticware is also available, or, if you are a thrift store maven, go to goodwills on a 50% off day…most utensils are 10 cents to begin with, and at 50% off, you are paying a nickel for real utensils….then just put them in the dishwasher on “super sanitize” (you never know, although we never think about this, but the forks we use at restaurants have been in hundreds of other people’s mouths), and you will be good to go!

I think with your venue you could totally do that!!! Whatever you decide, have a wonderful wedding day!!!   This is just an idea I bought raffia  at DollarTree last year.  At the grocery store, Vanity Fair has some nice white paper napkins. If that bothers you, and you would like to have another option, if you afford it, check these out:

At Smartyhadaparty they have

And you can find knives and spoons at this restaurant supply place too.
