Choose Your Wedding Linens Wisely
Wedding linens include tablecloths, napkins, chair covers, and table runners. They protect guests as well as furniture from spills and stains. More than that, linens serve as decorative elements, adding to the overall look of your big day.
Choosing linens doesn’t have to be a chore. Here are some things to remember when renting your wedding linens.
1. Stick to your budget.
Linen rental costs ranges from as low as $6 to about $20 each. Sometimes, when we’re too distracted with choosing from the different colors and styles, we don’t notice that we’ve gone beyond what we intended to spend. Moreover, there might be times that we feel uncomfortable negotiating for a better deal.
What you can do is to start the buying process with the budget in mind. Doing so will set the expectation of the vendor on where you are at budget-wise. Also, research in advance on what types of wedding linen are within your price range.
2. Figure out what style you want or what design you are going for.
When you know what you want, you’ll only have to browse certain styles and you don’t have to go through all the types just to have an idea of what you want.
Also, since you already have an idea on what look you’re going for, it’s easier to mix and match the pieces, with regards to the color and design. And with that, the next point brings us home.
3. List down the important details of what you are looking for.
Since you already have a budget in mind, as well as a theme you’re going for, you can now easily list down all that you’ll be needing for your wedding reception.
Make sure to note the quantity and the different types you’ll be needing, as well as the places you’ll be putting them in. It might be helpful if you also list down the average prices for each type so you’ll know when you’re reaching too high a price tag.
Another important thing to add is to bring a cheat sheet of the exact measurements you’ll be needing so that you don’t end up with tablecloths that are too long for your tables and draping over everyone’s shoes (to the point there might even be an accident) or too short that you can see everyone’s crotches.
4. Add a little extra flair
You won’t go wrong if you stick to tried and true solid colors, like white or cream, for example. But that would be too boring, right? Add a little something dramatic to add interest to your wedding style. You can also use different fabric textures or use fabric prints for contrast.
