Finding an Inexpensive Source for Wedding Dinnerware

Does anyone know where I could buy cheap dinnerware? I am interested in getting plates with a silver lining on it. I need two different sizes, 10 inch and 6 inch and need about 300-400 of them.


If you have some from your wedding or know a store or some place that sells them cheap please let me know. I don't want to rent them because I am starting a business as a wedding decorator and would need these.

I've seen something similar in the Gibson brand - check online.

I couldnt find anything thats Gibson brand, do you know a link for it? And i only would need the 2 sizes of plates, i wouldnt need any cups or bowls that may come with the set cause it would make it more expensive and i wouldnt need them. The picture is just to show what kind of plate i would need. Thanks everyone!!

If you are planning on doing a business I would take out a business loan, you don't want to skimp. Once you are known for your reputation you've either made or broke your business.

I would suggest finding restaurant auctions or estate sales, these are older dishes and are difficult to find.

Try a restaurant supply store for best bulk prices
