Have you thought about your wedding linens yet? Not to worry! We have some great (and fun!) information about what’s the big deal about linens and choosing the right ones for your special day.
As a recent May bride I knew nothing about linens until my wedding planner showed me what my room could like with the standard white linens and napkins, and what it could look infused with my wedding colors that really set the tone for a fun, party like reception space. Having uplighting and upgraded linens was something I was unsure of at first, but I would one-thousand percent do it again! Both uplighting and linens are visually the most powerful elements when planning your décor. It creates the ambiance for your wedding and carries your theme and color palette by adding dramatic flair.
Cocktail hour linens are sometimes forgotten about but it shouldn’t be since you really don’t need many! A few high boy tables in a rose-gold sequin linen has the warm tone that sets the anticipation for guests to get excited about seeing your reception space you have planned out so perfectly. Perhaps you are going for a more classic look and wanting to have your wedding color of navy incorporated so you can have your high boy table in a gorgeous satin navy with the tie in a deep emerald jewel color. Not having high boys? No problem! Set the elegance from the get go by having your bar linens be a beautiful satin color in your wedding palette.
Reception linens should be a reflection of your and your fiancés personality and style. There are a variety of colors, styles, textures, and sizes to choose from. White linens come with our Classic package, and your choice of colored poly linens come with our Signature and Premier packages.
Within Reception Linens you can have Overlays and Table Runners added to the table for a polished look. Below are some examples of linens shown with overlays (top layer over table cloth) and table runners. Overwhelmed? Don’t be! Here at Monte Bello we think a simple table runner and colored napkins is an easy and beautiful way to compliment your décor.
For finishing touches we love adding chargers (base plates) that enhance your tabletop décor and elegantly compliment your event design. Chair ties are another finishing touch that some couples are interested in adding for their special day. See below for charger and chair tie examples.
