Trends For The New Year

Trends For The New Year

With a new year, come new trends and colors.  This year, mint green will be the go to color for many brides.  Other cool colors such as pale blue sage, and sea foam green will give a similar effect.  To add a pop of color, many weddings will also see linens in bright shades of poppy red, lemon zest and nectarine.

Printed linens will also be making an appearance.  Try Damask, Stripes, or Chevron for something fun and different!  We now carry these linens!!

Another New Product


Waterford Event Rentals is excited to announce…We are now offering the rental of 13″ round plate chargers in SILVER and GOLD!

Don’t know what a plate charger is?? That’s okay! A plate charger is a larger decorative plate used to dress up the table. The charger is placed under the dinner plate. Take a look at the pictures below.

The rental price is $.85 a piece–yes, that’s it! This is an inexpensive way to really spice up your reception.

What Set’s Us Apart

What Set’s Us Apart


*We LOVE to meet our clients! In fact, we highly suggest it!  Often, colors over the Internet are distorted…especially with certain fabrics. When meeting in person the client is able to view large sample books of fabric in order to make a proper decision.

*Setting up an event involves a lot more than slipping on a chair cover! We take EXTRA time with industrial steamers to make sure linens look top notch.

*We carry organza, satin, pintuck, burlap, and damask fabric.

*We have MANY colors to choose from.

*5% off is given to all active and retired military.

*We provide wedding coordinators and venues with sample books to help the planning and decision making process run smoother.

*We do much more than chair covers…table cloths, runners, overlays, polyester and satin napkins, and plate chargers are all a part of our inventory.

*Our assistance doesn’t stop with rentals…we LOVE to help design the event. Most brides don’t know what colors will work well with their flowers, or just need a little guidance. We can help the event all come together with the proper linens. 🙂

The success of Waterford Event Rentals means so much to us, therefore, we are willing to do whatever it takes to make our clients happy! Contact us today to schedule an appointment…dates are booking up fast!

Must Ask Questions!

Must Ask Questions for Your Wedding.

Though it may seem a small detail, the linens you choose for your wedding make a huge difference on your big day.  Though many venues offer linens as part of their services, there are several important questions you must ask before agreeing to use their linens.

1) Are the linens included in the venue rental rate?

2) What are the size and shape of the tablecloths, and the tables?

3) What colors are available?

4) Are napkins included? If so, what size and colors?

5) What type of chairs and chair covers are offered?

After asking these questions, you should also ask to see the linens.  Some beautiful venues offer only simple cotton table squares, which will be of nice quality but unequal to elegance of the room.

For venues which provide linens or whose linens are inadequate for your needs,Waterford Event Rentals provides the best options!  With an extensive array of table cloths, overlays, runners and more, at an affordable price, Waterford Event Rentals will add splendor to your event!
