Mix and Match Place Settings

Everyone wants a wedding that's completely unique and their own. At the same time, most of us are watching our wallets and also trying to be eco-friendly too. Most people don't think you can have all of these things at one wedding, but even just simple things can make all of those things come together.
The china your reception dinner is served on is a major factor in the look of the tables and ultimately the entire reception. It can be expensive to rent everything and no doubt, someone else has used the same settings at their wedding as you. I can't count how many times I've gone into a salvation army or thrift store and found the cutest china for dirt cheap! Of course, you'll give up every place setting matching perfectly with each other, but think of the creative possibilities of everyone has a place setting that is different.
Since you want to keep the setting in with the rest of your theme, take swatches of your colors with you when you scour the stores for antique china. Look for the same or similar colors and designs to yours. It will certainly be something to set your wedding apart from all others, and because they're from thrift stores, you're also recycling!
