Preparing for an upcoming wedding is an exciting time for not only the soon-to-be bride and groom but also their families. Two families are about to be joining together, and everyone involved (especially the couple!) wants the reception to be an unforgettable event. From selecting the caterer and florist to choosing the perfect linens for the table settings, there can be a lot to do. That’s why relying on an event rental company can help make the preparation go smoothly. Here’s how A-Abco Rents and Sells, Inc. can help by guiding couples through all of the different linen options available to them and then help bring their vision to life.
Consider the Venue
The most important thing when selecting wedding linens is not how they look in the showroom but how they’ll look in the venue. If the reception is being held inside where the light is low, heavier or glittery linens can provide some needed sparkle. If there is plenty of lighting or the venue is outdoors, white or ivory linens work best, especially those with airy patterns that don’t add visual weight.
Work With the Color Scheme
Chances are that by the time the wedding planners get around to selecting linens, they’ve already developed a color palette for the event. The color scheme will likely be reflected in the bridesmaid’s gowns, the groom’s tie, and the flower arrangements. Tablecloths could either be neutral or reflect the main color of the color scheme, while the napkins, placemats, and table runners could echo the accent colors of the flower arrangements or the wedding party’s outfits.
Patterns and Texture
The texture of the table linens should work with the serving pieces and flatware. If the wedding meal is being served on smooth-finish porcelain with crystal stemware, for example, table linens should be similarly smooth and formal. For a wedding with a more informal meal, coarser fabrics may be more appropriate. Minimal patterns work well with refined, understated looks, while colored patterns and textures pair with a high-energy aesthetic.
