Bridal Paper Plates – What Plate is Your Plate?

So you’re getting married, the big day is looming in the distance, and you still have a hundred different decisions to make. You’ve decided to go with paper  plates  for the obvious reasons of cost, clean up, and time, but there are so many options out there that you really aren’t sure how to choose the perfect  plate . Here are a few tips for picking out  plates  that fit you and your wedding.

Color Coordination: The overall setting of your wedding will vastly improve if every component matches with the colors you’ve already chosen. You’ll be able to narrow down your choices much more quickly.

Floral, Plain, or Modern? What do you choose? As with all of your wedding choices, the best thing to keep in mind is to choose something that’s YOU. If the rest of your wedding is covered in flowers, floral  plates  will look fantastic. Go with plain  plates  that only have one color to lightly add the finishing touch and keep the focus on more important centerpieces. And if you’re a modern girl at heart, straight lines and cool colors will add that extra ‘oomph’ to your dining.

Strength to Match the Food: Nothing is worse (especially at a wedding) than having food leak through the  plate  onto your hands or your formal clothing. Choose  plates  that are going to hold up to the menu. If you’re just having light refreshments, nothing is wrong with having a lighter  plate , but when you’re serving dinner, make sure the sturdiness of the  plate  can stand the test.

Cost…Can’t Forget About That: You’ll be able to narrow down choices by knowing your budget beforehand for the  plates . You don’t have to go with something that will burn a hole in your pocket for that perfect  plate . I suggest buying in bulk to cut the cost, and make a little extra room to get the  plate  that you want.

Keep these things in mind when you’re out doing some pre-wedding shopping. The most important tip to remember is to go with a  plate  (and a wedding for that matter) that completely fits you as a couple. Bridal paper  plates  may seem like a small thing, but when the right  plate  is chosen, it will make the extra difference that makes your wedding stand out.
