Don't Go Naked

When working with your wedding budget it's so easy to assume you don't need to splurge on the *extras* like custom table linens & chair covers. You'd be totally wrong in making that assumption though! You can easily cut back on floral arrangements and other types of decor simply by using an overlay on your tables and caplets on your chairs. Let's do some comparing and contrasting shall we?

Now obviously there's nothing wrong with using the linens provided by your venue, but does it really give to "ooh la la" effect you want?  You can just as easily go with more simple centerpieces and rent linens through a local vendor. Linen vendors have so many options, it's amazing! You can keep your standard white linens and opt for an overlay to add a little bit of color. You could go ahead and get a totally new tablecloth. You can mix different textures by using a standard tablecloth, adding an overlay, and then using a table runner. And that's just for the tables!

Then there's you never thought about the chairs very much. You could leave your chairs naked but what's the fun in that? You can use the standard chair covers and use a bow around it which have become popular over the past few years. If you want to stay ahead of the trends, go for a chair caplet, or use flowers to decorate it!

Whether you choose to use coordinating tablecloths, napkin & chair bows...or go for something a little more elaborate like flower-adorned chairs, don't leave your chairs & tables naked!
