    No, never, no way! Spend the extra money!

    Who cares? Do what you want, and if people complain it's their problem!

    No plastic, no paper your wedding is formal. I feel the disposable would take away from that in a huge way…. 

    Let us know what you decide.

    @echristine:  I think that if you want to have a big formal, traditional wedding then you need to expect to spend the extra money and accept that you can’t cut corners the same way that brides with less formal weddings can. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with paper plates, but if you give people the impression that your wedding is going to be this grand, classy affair then they will be seen as tacky. 

    So just get glassware and proper plates.

    I’d be fine with paper for appetizers, no matter how fancy the wedding!  For the rest of it, I’d consider how it fits with the rest of your day?  Backyard weddings and ballroom weddings feel very different, right?

    I’ve been to a couple weddings where we had plastic plates and cups for cocktail hour. I didn’t think twice about it. It seemed normal to me.
