I would have loved every place setting at my wedding to be set with beautiful vintage china but unfortunately I can’t afford it! So instead I’ve just purchased a set of 6 side plates and one large serving plate from a little treasure trove called the Birds Yard in Leeds (other vintage retailers available) for just £15. I’ll be using the plates to display a slices of the cut wedding cake, adding just a little hint of vintage flair to the cake table and making it really appealing to the cake eaters.

Alternatively if you like the chinzy look then why to ask around the family and try and collate some vintage plate sets, most likely if these are un-used your friends and family will happily give them away. Also check out charity shops where you can pick up plate sets for a couple of £’s.
