Charger Plates - Yes or No?

As I do more and more decor/table stuff for the wedding I am looking into getting charger plates (specifically copper charger plates).

My problem- I have only heard back from one of the decor places but they only have 200 copper charger plates so I would need another colour to alternate (I already counted to see if the wedding party, vendors, and immediate family could make up for the other plates but we will most likely still end up needing another colour for regular guests).

Do I just skip them all together??

The copper they have available isn't even that "copper"y because they look somewhat brown :/

    If you can afford them, go for it. Otherwise I'd skip the charger plate. I'd rather allocate the money to something else (especially since it's not even the right colour!).

    I like that one too - but my sister did point out that the me + you with the heart match our invitations pretty well

    Probably going to go with that one and just maybe change the colour up.

    I do see your point of not going with the chargers due to the charge of shipping for the extra numbers to order adding to your budget. Not on that point, just having to consider reselling being harder after the whole event.

    I do agree the napkins are a better solution and the option of black on white with the saying of Mr. & Mrs. with the name and date underneath it.

    I like the one that says Cheers to Love & Laughter Happily Ever After! I also think the me + you in the heart is cute!

    Here are the 5 that I put in my Bridal party group chat (the FH was not helpful whatsoever with this...):

    We can obviously change the wording from "engagement party" and our names. I think the colour of font as well.

    Ooh, that looks so nice! Customized napkins sound lovely too, are you thinking of a monogram with the date?

    I think we will go with napkins (customized) but I do like the idea of place mats!

    This is a previous set up they had at our venue:

    We're not doing charger plate - our venue will have small place-setting plates with a candy-box favour on the plate. I didn't feel like I needed to run out and rent chargers.

    Is there an unconventional/alternative you could do, like a placemat? They could be cheaper but still give the look of a table setting.

    I think that's what I'm going to end up doing... hey, it saves money right? Not the end of the world - just the end of a decor idea.

    I thought about it - but with shipping added and then I would have to clean them (renting=return as is) I would sooner just order customized napkins (they had one wedding at my venue use plain ones and it looked alright.

    Our colours are Plum, Teal, and copper - I looked into even clear or plum or teal but have had no luck finding any.

    The offer alternating but the other charger plates they have don't really fit in and would add another colour to our colour scheme.

    Hmmm, that is tough. I agree with Becky, you can try ordering them online and then reselling them afterwards.

    Personally I would just eliminate them all together if you don't like the idea of alternating colours, or can't find what you are looking for

    Are you able to order them online and re-sell them? Would this be an option at all ? What are your colors? Would you like to alternate or really rather not?
