As long as the food tastes good I really wouldn’t care what I eat it off of lol.

As pp said, I’d just make sure what you’re eating is able to be cut by a plastic knife (which is almost nothing that requires cutting lol), and that they are sturdy enough to last through the courses. You could also do plastic plates but get real cutlery, which can often be found for very hceap (especially on like wedding FB buy/sell).

northcarolina18 :  Sure. We had a vintage/garden/rustic feel to our wedding so everything kind of follows that theme. 

Regular cups:https://www.amazon.com/Chinet-Crystal-Tumblers-14-Ounce-108-Count/dp/B002YD8GCK?th=1

Beer, wine & cocktail glasses (these were amazing, they held up in the dishwasher, looked good with wine and cocktails and could hold a full beer): https://www.samsclub.com/sams/chinet-24-ct-stemless-wine/prod15260076.ip?mobiledetect=false

Knives (we had roast beef as an option and one of my pet peeves is having to use a regular knife to cut beef so we opted just for steak knives):https://www.webstaurantstore.com/4-3-4-stainless-steel-steak-knife-with-wood-handle-12-pack/303SK16.html

I’ve been to a wedding that had plates made out of bamboo, so they were technically disposable, but looked and felt quite nice. That might be something to look into.

We bought birchwood plates for our camp wedding. They’re sturdy like plastic, but they’re biodegradable and they fit with our vintage theme, plus we can toss them in the campfire when we’re done with them.

We are doing a backyard wedding and got bamboo plates from Amazon and ebay, and bamboo cutlery, from Amazon, paper straw stone from Micheals with 50% faf coupon and plastic wine glasses, nice foam cups with lids for coffee, and wood stirring sticks from Costco. We are doing a hippie woodland theme for our wedding.
