We used platic silverware from costco that looks like real silverwear, platic plates and glasses, wine glasses, and champagne glasses (our bridal party used my grandmas fine china that meant alot to me, but it was a small party) and I got everything else at Smartyhadaparty.com! Everything was beautiful and actaully looked real, my mother in law didn’t realise it was plastic at first!

is it a backyard bbq type wedding, or are you going for something more formal/traditional?

my first wedding we did a buffet in a church fellowship hall. we had paper plates and no cups- lol drinks were pop and water bottles.   where is ur wedding going to be.. is it a formal theme– if so plastic cups and paper plates are a no.. if its back yard /garden picnic type theme then u can get away with it

We used plastic plates, plastic forks and knives and everything. check out smartyhadaparty.com they have great options for plastic tableware that looks like real china and real silver.  The picture below is similar to the forks and knives we used. it looks like silver but its actually plastic

I’ve used the “lookalike” plastic ware at weddings before, and it was fine – but they didn’t serve anything that required major chop work, like steak. 

We considered this when we were looking at caterers that didn’t provide silverware/plates. Conceptually I have no problem at all with disposables. It doesn’t bother me as a guest at all. But from the hosting/planning side.. it was really hard for me to get on board with it. I’m not sure why. 🙁

Our caterer had the option of giving us the nice plastic that looks like clear glass plate and silverware that looked like metal.  It was a great deal too.  They gave it to us for $1 per person and that came with the plastic cocktail glasses that most caterers us anyway.  I thought it was really a great deal and they looked nice also.

I’m OK with them if a) They are biodegradable or b) You will take them home to wash and reuse. If people start dumping them right and left, that’s where it makes me cringe at the waste involved!
