I am new to the boards, although I do check the boards often this will be my first post. I am getting married in August and we are doing a travel theme with some whimsy. We are doing Eggplant, aqua and Ivory for our colors, albeit the aqua doesn’t always end up being the same shade. Anyways the dilemma I am having is the rental companies around here either carry our the color of our table cloth but no matching chair linens or napkins and vice versa.
Is it a bad idea to use more than one rental companies for the linen rentals? We are trying to do a eggplant table with aqua napkins, Ivory chair covers with an aqua sash.
Thanks for your help.

Sure you can do different rental companies for what you like however if they are going to set up the sashes etc you will need to check on their policy. You can always check to see if any previous brides have any linens these colours. There are a couple Bridal Swaps coming up in Langley and Vancouver shortly.

@Pitbullgirlbc: Also consider buying at least some of your linens. It is less costly than renting and you can sell them after the wedding. You do have to balance off your savings with the fact that you have to iron them before the wedding and launder them after, but the savings can be considerable.

@julies1949: That’s a great idea. I bet there are a multitude of place on the internet to order such things at a discounted price an any color you like.
