I have china for rent in the Indianapolis and surrounding suburb areas. Please email me at [email protected] if you’re interested. I charge $0.50 per plate plus damage deposit. At this time there is no delivery charge. I deliver and pick-up to and from your venue. The only responsibility of the renting party is to rinse plates off and repack china into their containers.

Love to hear from you!

I’ve been collecting from antique stores, thrift shops, and estate sales all over the Bay Area for six months. They’re for my own someday, far-off wedding, with the intent of renting them out in the meantime… I’m not even CLOSE to being engaged, but collecting them has been such a fun hobby. 🙂

 

I haven’t yet collected nearly enough for a large wedding, but can rent these out to anyone from the Bay Area to supplement to their own collection!  Here’s what I’ve got so far: 

 

30 Dinner Plates
50 Teacups
60 Saucers
30 Dessert Plates
20 Bread-and-Butter Plates

We have found the china, but are now looking for tips on how to transport and set up placesettings. We only have a few hours the morning of the wedding to set up everything. Did you have a special way to mark placesettings or transport them?

I am having mismatched china, and tea cups. I only have about 30 guests anyways, so will not be too expensive. I go to second hand stores to find mine, Vallue Village/ Goodwill

This idea really appeals to me. i know this is an oldish thread, but is anyone in the CT area with plates to sell or rent?

my sister did that for her breakfast wedding and it was gorgeous. She hired them from somewhere so she didn’t even have to worry about washing them.

thelovecats :  hey there! I’m considering doing this and was wondering about what you did with the plates immediately after people were done eating off them. Did you hire someone to come collect them? How or when did you wash them? Did you take them home dirty and wash them…? So many questions! Thanks!
