Top 3 Linens of 2020

Although 2020 was a crazy year, we did get to see a few great trends that took the year by storm! We are thrilled to share the top 3 linens of 2020! The last year our events were nowhere near normal but we did get to witness some crazy beautiful weddings with linens to die for. Just as we went through last week with our top napkin folds- we thought it was necessary to make the most popular linen choices known as well.

The fun part about rentals & picking out your linens is that you can literally bring your Pinterest board to life. You want it, we got it OR can get it 😉 There are countless possibilities when it comes to designing your ideal tablescape. Meeting with couples is the best part of our job and getting to step outside the box just makes us jump for joy. When couples are adamant that they want their reception space to be like no other the fun really begins! We get to mix & match napkins, chargers, table shapes & sizes which really gives you the opportunity to make your BIG DAY one in a million!

Let’s get right into taking a peek at these top 3 linens of 2020.

#1- Velvet

Yes, as I’m sure you can expect not only do we love velvet, TONS of our couples this year did too! Velvet comes in countless colors but also some added texture & patterns as well & we’re diggin’ it big time. Take a look at all the velvet your heart desires below.Luke And Ashley PhotographyCaroline Lima PhotographyAmanda Hedgepeth Photography

#2- Ice Blue Matte Satin

While this one has been popular for the last two years in the wedding world, it’s not showing any sign of slowing down!!Tara Liebeck PhotographyKirstyn Marie Photography

#3- Texture

Textured linens might be THE go to linen look for 2021!!!! This linen style is super fun because it’s not just one fabric that’s trending. It’s tons of stunning linens with different patterns & textures making it more than just one specific linen itself.Dragon Photo StudioKatie Nesbitt PhotographyCaitlin Gerres Photography

Napkin Folds- It’s a Big Deal

One of the most fun things about meeting with so many couples prepping for their big day is being able to show them every little detail. So many times we hear from our couples “wow I didn’t even realize there were so many options.” We love to hear that and then being able to show all the things that can just take your guest tables from drab to fab is SO fun. A super small detail that most people probably don’t think about is their napkin fold. I mean having the perfect napkin is one thing, but the fold really just sets it off and perfects the place setting.

Napkin folding is actually probably one of our favorite parts of the whole setup. Today we’re going to show you just a few of our favorite napkin folds.

Band around charger

This fold is a perfect way to add a small pop of color to your reception tables & when put together with an amazing charger plate you have the best duo!Erika Mills Photography

Trifold Hanging

This fold gives your table a more simplistic look from the top but adds an elegant feel as it just delicately hangs off the table. And if you’re feeling like you want to give it a little more- throw a monogram on them!Luke & Ashley Photography

Menu Fold

Ok y’all- if you are providing a menu for your guests then this fold is a MUST. It’s so beautiful and definitely is sure to have your guests notice the detail here. This fold is pretty intricate and is sure to have your guests chatting to their neighbor about just how cute that little pocket is!

The Knot

Saved the best for last. Well this year we have seen a huge shift in couples going for the traditional napkin fold into a more trendy style such as the knot. We love doing knotted napkin ties because it’s a cute way to incorporate your napkins but also lays so nice on top of charger plates.
