The linens for your event actually play a significant role in completing the overall appearance.

Choosing the right linens is definitely vital to the appearance of your event. But, do you know which linens will work perfectly for yours?

Don’t let your colors clash. One of the most difficult parts of planning a big event is ensuring that all elements come together to form a cohesive presentation, while also not clashing with each other. When choosing your linens, take a look around your venue beforehand. Will the room that your event is being held clash with the table linens you want to order? Will the bold green walls with dazzling white trim clash with your orange linens? This is crucial to creating an appealing look.
Know your sizes. Before you just order the basic linen size for your event, you really need to double check your table and chair sizes. Your event planner or venue coordinator should be able to help you gather the correct sizes before you order your linens. After all, you wouldn’t want to spend all that money on linens and have them not fit your tables.
More napkins. They say it’s better to be safe, than sorry. In other words, ensure that you have more than you need so you don’t have to go without. This is especially true with your napkins, as your guests are sure to use at least one, if not more. When you order your napkins, it’s recommended that you order about 10-15% above your guest count.
There may be a lot to consider when ordering your linens, but surely it is worth it. Your linens play a major role in creating a beautiful, memorable, and well-functioning event.
