Wedding receptions usually need several components to be successful, such as great food, music, and beautiful tables. Tables require several different table linens to look complete. Reception tables require more than one linen—for example, main linens, overlays, and liners—to provide a compelling and attractive-looking dining area for your guests. Let’s take a closer look at the different types of table linens you will need for your wedding reception.
The main table linen rental will be the fabric that covers the entire table. This linen is often in white or black so all the centerpiece and accent linen colors can stand out. You will have many choices for fabric, such as organza, cotton, and satin. It is best to look at your desired color in all fabric selections to ensure your table linens match your wedding vision.
Liners may seem like a minor element of your table linens, but they are necessary to the look, feel, and protection of your entire table. Liners are not seen by your guests, but they can protect the table itself, and they add a more luxurious feeling to the main table linens.
Overlays are linens that are smaller than the main linen, and they add more opportunities for color and dimension. An overlay can be a circle, square, or a narrow rectangle, also called a runner, that is centered across each of your table rentals. If you have chosen a white table linen, then use an overlay to represent one of your wedding colors and add depth to your tables.
Chair covers are another common type of linen used for wedding receptions. These linens make your chairs look and feel more comfortable and luxurious. They can be paired with a colored sash to further represent your wedding colors.
