What are your table needs?
You may think that a table is just a table, but that's very far from the truth. First, you have to figure out how many tables you're going to need. This number will be based on the number of guests you'll have, as well as the need for buffet, dessert, and DJs tables. Second, you need to choose what size tables you need. You may have different sized tables depending on the function they will serve. Lastly, determine what shape you want for your tables. Again, this can vary depending on what you need.
What are your colors?
Your wedding colors should have a big influence on what you choose for your wedding linens. Linens can come in so many colors, but you want to make sure everything is coordinated. You can complement your wedding colors with the linens, like going with blush dresses and flowers and sticking with ivory for your linens. You can also be bold with gold decor and black linens. When in doubt, you can always stick with classic white linens because white really does go with everything.
What about layers?
Table linens are more than just table cloths. They include the tablecloths, table runners, napkins, and table skirts. If you're going to be layering multiple linens on each table, you want to make sure they compliment each other and function well. This means the colors and styles of all pieces should go together. Don't forget to use table linen hangers so all your pieces remain wrinkle free and in good shape when you set your tables.
Where is the wedding?
Finally, consider your venue. Is it casual or formal? Is it outside or inside? These factors can change what you pick for your linens.
Roughly 63% of brides say they feel a lot of pressure to have the perfect wedding, according to WeddingWire's Newlywed Report from 2017. There are a lot of things that go into wedding planning that can add to that stress, but hopefully, these table linen tips alleviate that a little bit. Remember to consider what your tables will be like, your colors, layers, and your wedding venue. Don't forget your table linen hangers to keep your linens smooth and beautiful before your big day.
