Happy Waterford Wednesday!
This past Sunday was the amazing VOW Bridal Event and we had such a fun time meeting so many new brides! We always love being a part of the VOW show and this year was extra special, as we got to be part of a creative booth design with Botanique Events, MorLina Events, SnapQube, and Dustin Lewis Images!
Over the past couple of months, we’ve done a few different posts on various tips and tricks that can make the whole wedding planning process go a little smoother. From creating the perfect table setting to maximizing your time at a bridal show, we hope these little tidbits have helped! This week, we have a few random tips that will make the linen rental process more effective!
Rent Extra Napkins
If you plan on using napkins at your event. . .always rent extra! We can’t recommend this tip enough! Oftentimes, it’s hard to get an exact guest count, so when renting a linen that requires one for each person, it’s very important that there are plenty of extra. Even if you are confident that you have a solid guest count, renting extra napkins is never a bad idea, you never know when an extra one will be requested!
Don’t Wait To Rent!
Even if you don’t have all of your RSVPs in, it’s a smart idea to rent your linens early in the wedding planning process! Placing an initial order for a higher amount will guarantee the availability of linens on your day. The vast majority of rental companies will allow you to change your order with no penalty up to a couple weeks before the event, which means if you need to drop a table linen or two, it will be no problem! However, if you need to add a few table linens at the last minute. . .there’s a chance there won’t be enough in stock. You don’t want the stress of that!
Work With The Floral Designer
An important aspect of planning an event is participation between your floral designer and your linen provider. This critical relationship can make or break the overall aesthetic of your event! You want your floral arrangement to compliment and enhance your table linen design. You don’t want to have a floral design that doesn’t reflect the elaborate or elegant table you had in mind!
