Mismatched China Plates
I got this idea originally from a wedding that was featured on the blog “Green Wedding Shoes” awhile back and I was soon hooked on this idea of having mismatched vintage plates for my wedding. When I searched online for mismatched china plates for weddings, I was shocked to see how many brides were doing this very same thing for their own weddings. I thought it would be beautiful and unique to collect vintage floral china plates for my cocktail and reception since my theme is vintage shabby chic.
So I started collecting plates from flea markets, thrift stores and rummage sales and the next thing I knew, I had a big collection of appetizer plates, salad plates, dinner plates and also dessert plates. I even started collecting plate’s way before I was even engaged, because I wasn’t sure how long it was going to take or how many I would end up needing. Believe it or not I’m very close to being finished and my wedding is still over a year away. I was lucky enough that I had a few friends of the family involved with the collecting process and I’m very anxious to see how the plates will look on my wedding.
