A Budget-Friendly Tablescape Starts With Wedding Table Linens

It’s a struggle every bride-to-be and Event Planner faces at one point: do I purchase wedding table linens or do I rent them? Wholesale wedding linens do have the added benefit of being cost effective off the bat, but when you add the savings across dozens of tables and specialty tables you’ll be shocked at how quickly the savings add up. We created the above video to showcase a classic, budget-friendly wedding tablescape with comparisons on how much you can expect to pay wholesale versus through a rental service. Ultimately each side has its pros and cons, so be sure to make an educated decision on which will work best for you and your event!

What to Look For in Wedding Table Linens

When having a wedding, it’s natural to want the ceremony and reception to be perfect – and rightfully so! Everything must match and tie in to the overall theme to create an extraordinary atmosphere. One of the features that truly defines the atmosphere of a wedding reception is the wedding table linens, which includes items such as:
Tablecloths
Napkins
Chair Sashes
Chair Covers
Backdrop Draping
Table Runners

These come in countless different designs and styles so you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for. If you have a clear idea of what you want your wedding reception decor to look like, it is very easy to find wedding table linens to help you create just the right look for the perfect wedding reception that neither you nor your guests will ever forget.

Choosing Wedding Table Linens

When you are looking for just the right wedding table linens to rent for your reception, you need to have some considerations in mind so you can plan the perfect reception.

Here are just a few of the things to ask yourself:

What do you want your wedding’s theme to be?
The colors and styles of your wedding table linens will depend on what the theme of your wedding is. A few different wedding themes people have are:
• Country-themed rustic
• Seaside beach chic
• Very formal and elegant
• 1920’s Art Deco
• Glitz and glam

For all of these, different types of table linens will be required. Table linens are one of the biggest factors in setting the theme at a wedding; if you had bare tables and paper napkins, none of your guests would feel a connection to your theme or invest in you as a new couple. Remember: a wedding reception ultimately is a thank you to your guests for attending your ceremony and witnessing your special day, so ensure the atmosphere reflects how much you appreciate your gathered friends and family.

What color scheme are you going for?
Sometimes instead of having a theme, people who are getting married have a color scheme instead. This can reflect itself not just in the centerpieces, bridal bouquet, bridesmaids’ dresses, and the groomsmen’s ties, but also in the colors of the wedding table linens. Ideally, you should have more than one color in your scheme so there is a little variety, but it is essential that you make sure you choose colors that will look nicely together. Using the color wheel and classic color schemes will help you choose colors that combine well together.
