When I looked at linens for the wedding, I originally wanted white linens with Tiffany blue runners. My mom and I went about two weeks ago and priced linens again for the reception. We went to two linen places in the area, one I already knew was expensive and the other was more reasonable. I had my heart set on using the less expensive company, which makes sense, but the linens that they had were not long enough. The round table linens stopped in the middle of the table leg, instead of brushing across floor like I wanted. Needless to say, I am having to use the linens at the more expensive linen place. Luckily the difference in price is only about $2.00 per table. The runners that I wanted to use are $15.00 a piece...way out of the budget. Due to the price I have decided to go in another direction for my tables. I am going to use chocolate brown table linens on my tables and use Tiffany blue tulle circles in the middle of the table to get both colors on the tables. On the circles, I will be using the vases with white flowers that I talked about in previous postings. Even though it is not what I originally wanted, I think it will be pretty regardless. Besides, I will not have to see all the food on that people would have spilled on the tablecloths if they were white.
Have you had to make any changes to your wedding design due to cost? If so, what did you have to do?
