    Choosing linens may not be at the top of your wedding planning task list, but the perfect table linens can give your reception the “wow” factor you are looking for. The appropriate wedding linens can complete your color scheme and will also greatly enhance the overall aesthetic and mood of your special day. Use the tips below to rent your table linens with ease and make your wedding reception a visual success.

    Enlist the assistance of your reception venue to plan a comfortable seating arrangement and room layout for your reception. From this plan, you can determine how many tables you will need to dress with linens, which may include dinner, cocktail, cake, and place card tables. Your rental company can also provide you with each table’s size so that you will choose the appropriate tablecloths, runners, napkins, and table skirting for your reception.

    • style=”font-size: 11px;”>Choose Colors that Complement Your Theme

    Next, you should select table linen colors that work well in the room where your reception will be held and fit the theme of your wedding colors. Most modern brides and grooms choose at least two colors that influence the décor of the entire wedding, so you may choose linens in multiple colors. Also, if your wedding activities will take place over the course of a day, check the effect of the changing light on the color tone of the room and your chosen linen colors.

    • style=”font-size: 11px;”>Place Your Order Early

    Don’t let your linens get lost in the flurry of your wedding planning! Because linens feature so prominently in the reception and provide the backdrop for your table centerpieces, don’t put off this important task; waiting until the very last minute to place your linen order with your rental company can limit your choices. In order to ensure the linens you so carefully selected are available, you should reserve your linens six to 10 weeks before your big day.
