I cannot as we purchased most of our stuff outright.

But I did stop in to ask if there was a reason you were renting your tablecloths, you could purchase 108″ polyester tablecloths [would be floor length on 48″ tables] in your colors [3 of silver, 3 of navy blue] for 54.67 and they offer free shipping. Plus, you could resell them after the wedding.

Just a thought!

@cheetah2b:  we had a small guest list too (35).  I purchased linens from  Would you consider doing rectangular tables? 8′ tables can seat up to 10 people So you’d have 1/2 the tables and tableclothes.  You’ll also need linens for the sweetheart table, cake table, bar, etc. We used family china, my grandmothers, great grandmothers, and pieces from DH’s side. I thrifted additional pieces along with glassware. We also used family “good” silverware. 

ETA: It sounds like you’re a budget bride like me so you could also try if you’re looking for something specific like wine glasses and don’t care if they all match. I had someone give me milkglass vases for my centerpieces and others gave me glassware.
