I personally think having real dishes are better.  Is your reception going to be laid back?  However, if your budget is limited and you’d like to spend your money elsewhere go for it!  It’s your wedding so do whatever you want to do.  I’ve been to one wedding where there were paper plates and plastic silverware and no one had any rude comments about it at dinner.

I personally hate paper plates and plastic silverware. I hardly even use them at home so I would not want to use them at a wedding. If you can find room in your budget for real china then I would definitely spring for it.

If you are having a caterer, this may be included in the prices. Ours did.

I am honestly surprised that I will have china and silverware at my wedding. Most weddings I’ve been to have the small clear plastic plates and forks/spoons. I think the clear ones are just fine… maybe not white paper plates. But even that is fine! I’m only having china because it comes with the venue.
