Tips on Choosing Table Linens For a Wedding


There are so many decisions to be made when planning a wedding. You have to make a guest list, find a place to have the wedding and reception. You have to pick bridesmaids and groomsman and the list of things to do goes on and on. One of the most important things that you must do to decorate for your wedding reception is to pick out table linens. Table linens can set the whole theme of the reception. You can pick bold table linens or you can pick more subtle, elegant table linens. You may need square tablecloths, round tablecloths or even chair covers or sashes. Here are a few tips on how to get the most from the table linens that you choose.

The first thing you must do is decide where you are going to have tables that need to be covered and what kind of tables you are going to have. Are some going to be round and others rectangle? Are you going to have the guest book at the actual wedding sitting on a table that needs covered? What about the dining tables at the reception or the cake table and even the table that the DJ will have his radio equipment on. Do you want all those covered in table linens? Do you want your chairs covered in fabric or maybe a sash around the backs of the chairs? If you do, you need to plan for all those item to be covered with fabric in your budget.

The next thing you want to do is check with your caterer if you have one or your wedding coordinator. These two people can definitely help you make the right choice when it comes to picking out table linens. The catering service makes a huge contribution to how the tables and chairs are going to look. They may have some great ideas on colors or arrangement of the tables and chairs. Wedding coordinators can probably direct you to a great wholesale website or store where you can buy all of the table linens and chair covers in mass quantity for much cheaper.

There are thousands of different types of fabric to choose from and probably just as many colors. If you are on a limited budget, the best thing you can do regarding table linens is shop around and try to find your tablecloths at a wholesale shop. This would be a huge savings in cost. You can get a lot of fabric for a cheaper price by doing this and if you have several different sized tables, shopping wholesale is definitely the way to go.

You can also look at flea markets or online auctions for table linens. The only concern with doing this is that you may not be able to find enough of the same kind of table linen that you need to cover all your tables. If you are going for a more whimsical or eccentric looking wedding and you don’t want them all to match, the flea market and online auctions are very good places to get table linens, otherwise look for wholesale shops or websites to get your tablecloths, and chair coverings.

You can have lots of fun decorating with all sorts of fabric table linens. Pick what suits you best and enjoy your big day!
