Very good.

Well, it’s quite simple. Rent your plates and all your dining needs from Lisa. The plates were a huge hit just as I expected. Our local Catholic Bishop who is known for his “keen” and “look out of the box eyes” went out of his way to get Lisa’s card I had sitting on the buffet table with the plates. I knew right then and there when I saw him take her card that I had made a good choice using Lisa’s plates and dinner ware.

Bridal Tea Shower

The owner Lisa is simply amazing and very responsive to all questions! I hosted a bridal tea shower for my daughter and we found the wedding plate online and we fell in love with all the vintage pieces and the rest is history! Easy to order , pick up and return was even easier! Very satisfied customer!

An amazing custom experience!

Lisa /The Wedding Plate was absolutely amazing. I found her company completely by accident- through a simple Google search after not finding that special something with local vendors. As I was not local, we did a FaceTime to identify the "look" I wanted, and she fully customized to my preferences. She worked directly with my planner and caterer to make sure the event had everything that was needed. She special ordered certain items to create a cohesive look. She then personally delivered the items and set the tables to create a gorgeous effect. I will absolutely use her again in the future if I have the opportunity!

I can not say enough wonderful things about them. I have worked with them on 2 different occasions and they are professional and wonderful to work with. Their china and set up is just beautiful and spot on. They worked very well with the bride and groom and with our venue. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
