We might be going with a more casual caterer and in a casual or potentially formal (though seaside) venue.
If we go with the non-wedding caterer, we will likely hire a bar company that will bring the glasses, and handle all of that in their costs.
But if we go with our casual caterer...they don't do weddings often, so there won't be the reusable china on hand to use. We'd have to rent (another contract, another vendor, more people to pay to do the job), bring them ourselves (we're DIYing enough of the clean up as it is), or use disposables.
Does anybody have any suggestios for affordable disposable cutlery, plate, napkins...that aren't necessarily fancy but are on the classy side of disposables?
Made in the USA, sustainable, compostable are all eco-strategies that would help; I don't even know if the compostables will help because I don't think the town we are marrying in has a compost program.
