Wedding linen rentals are one of the lesser talked about aspects of planning a wedding. Everyone loves to talk about the dress, location, and of course after-party activities, but renting linens for a wedding reception can be a fun process as well. The right wedding reception linens can turn your event into a stylish, trendy, and visually-attractive environment for all guests to enjoy. The wrong choice can make it look a real hot mess. Here are three things to think about when it comes to wedding reception linens.
1.) Color: There are a plethora of colors to choose from when it comes to linens for weddings. Basically any color you can imagine you can probably find somewhere. One important thing to keep in mind is that colors like blush pink, peach, gold, and natural hues are the perfect way to create a vintage and timeless look for your wedding. On the other hand, pastel colors are easy to mix and match and create a unique, stylish setting.
2.) Design: Wedding reception linens come in more options than just colors as well. Most linen rental companies offer designs like petals, rosettes, and lace, which are considered textured linens. They are available as full linens or in overlays and can really pop-out in wedding photographs. Another cool idea is to put burlap and lace textures together to create an interesting, earthy look with a more delicate elegance.
3.) Guest Accommodations: While the other decisions that go into wedding reception linens are up to taste and desire, this one is much more concrete and factual. You need to have an accurate guest count and table measurements before you can rent any linens. Once you have that information most companies will work with you (if you want) to help you create the perfect style for you.
Wedding reception linens are one of the more underrated aspects of planning a wedding, but they are important and can greatly effect the overall beauty of the event. With the average cost of a wedding being $26,984 in 2010 it’s crucial to make sure every detail is just how you want it. If you’re going to spend that kind of money, it better be just how you want it.
