Yippee! I am so glad. I cannot wait to see how it works.

Sarah, I love this plan. Good luck and I can't wait to see what all you find!

yay! i wanted to do this, but wimped out. good luck... can't wait to see how it turns out. we'll keep you in mind when we're yard-sale-ing this spring :)

That is what we are doing too. I was able to buy up LOTS of old china plates, saucers, and really cool silverware over the last few months.
We'll be selling everything after the wedding on May 2nd.

Carla - where do you live? Perhaps we can buy yours?

This is the best idea ever. I can't wait to see pics!

Does anyone know if there is a website where you can buy and sell used wedding items, such as a collection of vintage plates, center piece containers/vases, etc.?

I love this idea-- not that anyone should ever *need* an excuse to go thrifting, but it never hurts :) Can't wait to see the collection you come up with!

I really want to do this for our wedding also but it has proven to be difficult since I am planning an east coast wedding from the west. I found beautiful, inexpensive vintage plates on EBay but the seller sent them to the wrong address so now I have to spend MORE $$ to ship them east. I think I may just give into renting. But at least now we don't have to register for plates!

OMG...I. have totally been toying with this same idea but was afraid it would end up giving a sloppy/trashy vibe instead of the look I had in mind but the fact that you are doing it and others have pulled it off give me the confidence to go for it. You totally rock!
