When planning a wedding, details matter! So, while you’re making your to-do list, be sure you allot time for deciding on your wedding linen rentals. Although selecting tablecloths and napkins needn’t be an arduous task, you likely have more options than you may think. Here’s what to know about wedding linen rentals.
Wedding Linen Rentals: Fabric Options
Linens for your wedding and reception are available in a variety of fabrics.
Cotton is an excellent choice for less formal weddings and wedding receptions. It’s also an ideal choice for outdoor weddings. Available in a vast range of colors, cotton is perfect for an informal vibe.
Linen’s naturally grainy texture makes it a bit more formal than cotton wedding linens. However, it’s a versatile fabric, which can infuse a rustic aesthetic into your table settings, as well. Linen tablecloths and napkins are available in dozens of colors or can be dyed to match your other décor.
Polyester is a budget-friendly fabric option. Polyester is one of the most common fabrics used on wedding tables. Available in virtually any color you can imagine, and in a wide array of patterns, polyester linens are a terrific option for indoor and outdoor events.
Taffeta creates a sleek, iridescent, modern look. It is ideal for use in conjunction with overlays.
Sequined wedding linens have exploded in popularity recently. Sequined linens look like you’ve added jewels to your tabletops, resulting in an eye-catching, upscale aesthetic.
Ideal for winter weddings, damask is the pattern in heavy-weight brocade fabrics. The silk threads used to make brocade create an embossed look that is timeless for wedding receptions.
Organza is perfect for creating a sheer, ethereal look. Often used in overlays, chair sashes, or draped from the ceiling, organza can be embroidered, patterned, and include beading.
Lace adds a romantic, upscale accent to your place settings and centerpieces. Delicate and whimsical, lace has long been a popular choice in wedding linen rentals.
Wedding Linens: Common Sizes
The number of linens you’ll need to order will depend upon the number of tables you’ll have (including guest book tables, gift tables, hors d’oeuvres tables, and/or buffet tables). You’ll also need to decide if you want your linens to reach the floor, if you want to add toppers to the linens, or if you’ll be using overlays. If you’re not sure, ask your wedding planner or party supply consultant for help.
Common sizes for wedding linens include:
- 84″ square
- 8′ standard
- 108″ round
- 120″ round
- 134″ round
- 22″ x 120″ runner
How to Use Wedding Linens
Wedding linens are not just for tablecloths and napkins, but they may also be used for:
- Chair covers
- Ceiling draping
- Swag (cover beams, accent lights, or other fixtures in the venue)
- Photo backdrops
- Table runners
