Have you ever thought of using paper plates at your wedding? Okay, stop cringing! I don’t mean to have your guests eat off of them. That could be pretty tacky. I mean as decor.
No, seriously – paper plates can be a cheap decorative option. No? Still don’t believe me? See for yourself….
SEE, you should trust me! Just look at these pretty paper plate polyhedrons. How fantastic would they look as reception decor? Not to mention they are unbelievably affordable!

I am loving the paper plate garland hanging in this Anthropology window. You could dye them to coordinate with your wedding palette and hang them to accent a cake table, reception entrance or even as a ceremony backdrop. It would be pretty much fabulous anywhere.

Yes, I am fully aware that this is Christmas decor, but I think this could be remade into something wedding appropriate. It would be cute strung up as garland or you could even hang each plate individually from the ceiling. If you group them together and hang at different lengths they’d make a great backdrop for a sweet table or even photo booth.

These may not be ideal for a wedding but would be adorable bridal shower decorations. Perfect for a dessert station or a Love Sweet Love themed shower.
You’d never know these flowers were made from paper plates, would you?

At first glance you may not have even realized the paper plate backdrop. I adore this idea and think it pulls the entire look of this table together. You can use square plates (shown here) or round for a different look! Use a solid color or alternate colors to make a patterned backdrop.
Come on, you know you can make a wreath outta almost anything. Paper plates are no exception. Isn’t this lovely? I think I could do without the colored centers but LOVE the burnt edge look!
Okay, here’s another non-decor idea but one I didn’t want you to miss. Use paper plates and post it’s when you are making your seating chart. It’s not an easy task, but can be less stressful with an approach like this.
