How To Save Money on Table Linens for Weddings?

Planning for your wedding day involves myriad details, and some may catch you off guard with their costs. One element often overlooked until budgeting begins in earnest is table linens. In 2024, these can run the gamut from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.

But fear not! There are savvy ways to procure beautiful and affordable tablecloths and other linens without breaking the bank. From scouting for linen sales to considering alternative fabrics, there are strategies to ensure your big day is splendid while staying within budget. 

1. Choose Basic Colors

Opt for classic, basic colors that can be more budget-friendly than custom or trendy hues. Timeless shades like white, ivory, or black are versatile and readily available at lower prices, allowing you to achieve an elegant look without overspending. Plus, these neutral tones provide a versatile backdrop that complements any decor style or color scheme, making them a practical choice for any event.

CV Linens offers a wide array of colors for our table linens, ensuring there's something to suit every style and theme. Whether you opt for classic colors or prefer modern patterns and bold hues, CV Linens is your destination for premium and affordable tablecloths.

2. Consider Alternative Fabric

While silk and satin may be luxurious, polyester or polyester blends offer a similar look at a fraction of the cost. These fabrics are durable, easy to clean, and ideal for budget-conscious brides.

CV Linens offers table linens in a variety of materials to suit every preference and budget. From the durable and budget-friendly polyester fabric to the stunning Payette sequin, we have something for everyone.

3. Opt for Standard Sizes

Standard-sized tablecloths are more affordable than custom sizes since they are mass-produced. Stick to standard sizes for your tables to take advantage of lower prices.

CV Linens’ tablecloths also come in varying sizes to fit different tables, ensuring that you find the perfect fit for your event. We offer standard-sized tablecloths for round, rectangle, and square tables, providing style and convenience.

4. DIY Decorations

Acrylic Crystal Drop Centerpiece - Silver
Silk Greenery with Roses Wall Backdrop Panel - Light Pink

Get crafty and create your tablecloth decorations using fabric paint, stencils, or embellishments. DIY projects not only save money but also add a personal touch to your wedding decor.

Transform old but still stunning table covers into a beautiful DIY tablecloth backdrop by simply hanging them behind your main table or ceremony area. This budget-friendly option allows you to repurpose existing linens and customize them to match your wedding theme or color scheme.

5. Look for Discount and Clearance Tablecloths

Keep an eye out for sales or clearance table linens at local stores, wedding expos, or online retailers. Clearance sales offer significant discounts on overstock tablecloths, providing excellent savings opportunities.

Explore our website for clearance tablecloths. You are sure to find affordable tablecloths and other linens that fit your budget without compromising quality.

6. Negotiate for Discounted Table Linens

Don't be afraid to negotiate prices with linen suppliers, especially if you're renting multiple items or purchasing in bulk. Many vendors are willing to offer discounts or customize packages to accommodate your budget and needs.

At CV Linens, there's no need to negotiate as our table linens and decor come at inexpensive prices. Moreover, we offer regular discount promos and free shipping for large orders, ensuring that you get the best value for your money. Planning for your special day and staying within budget is made easy with CV Linens.

7. Buy in Bulk

While renting table linens is economical for one-time use, purchasing affordable tablecloths and other linens in bulk offers long-term savings and flexibility. Pool your orders with other wedding essentials like napkins, chair covers, or sashes to qualify for bulk discounts, reducing the cost per unit and maximizing your savings over time.

Opting to buy in bulk ensures you have an ample supply of different types of table linens for future events or occasions. This eliminates the need for last-minute rentals and potential additional costs. Plus, owning your linens allows for customization and personalization, tailored to your unique style and preferences.
