Hey guys! For those of you that chose to purchse your own linens rather than rent, when did you order them? Did you wait until you got your rsvp’s back to see how many people were coming or did you order based on how many people you invited? I’d like to order based on my rsvp’s but I’m afraid that if there is anything wrong with my order when it arrives that I won’t have enough time to get it fixed.

- Wedding: November 2011 - Florida Aquarium
I used the venue’s black tablecloths, but I bought silver table runners– I got an awesome deal on Amazon that was cheaper than renting them from the venue. So, check amazon! I bought two extra runners just in case RSVPs went crazy.

My wedding is in October and I’ve been taking advantage of Linentablecloth.com’s sales and free shipping weekends since the beginning of the year to buy tablecloths, chair covers, runners, sashes, etc. The free shipping is awesome and if you can get that with a good sale or a 10% off deal it’s even better. I got 120 white satin chair sashes for $40 a month ago…that was the best deal of year.
I follow them on Facebook to take advantage of their “flash sales”. Their regular prices are the best, or close to the best you’ll find online. At $12 for a 120″ round tablecloth, it trumps the $27/per rental quote from my caterer!!

I am wondering the same thing! I have my original guest list, and I took it and narrowed it down to who I think will come (if I wasn’t really sure, I just said they are) so I think I might just go off of that number.
I am going to order from linentablecloth.com, and sometimes they run out of stock of the black chair covers I want, so I might just have to order and hope for the best!
@kimberlyr22: I didn’t know they did this! I will have to go like them on facebook!

@kimberlyr22: That’s website I’m planning on using so thanks for tips on their “flash sales”. I’m on the fence about chair covers, but if I can get them for super cheap then I would totally do it… time to follow them on facebook…

Okay, question about the facebook thing… If I “like” them, will the sales show up in my newsfeed or do I need to check the page? Any idea how often they run the sales? It looks like they are doing free shipping right now, but I want a chair cover sale! haha

We purchased linens from LinenTablecloth.com too. Our wedding is in May and we purchased them in late February. I purchased enough for our entire guest list, assuming most would come. The reason I did that was because they sometimes run out of certain items and I was afraid I would under purchase and then not be able to order more.
If you follow them on FB and “Like” them they will show up in your news feed and at the beginning of every month they announce a code. And then randomly they announce a special 3 day sale. I remember I purchased mine on Monday at 10% off and then on Tuesday they announced 15% off until Thursday. I’ve noticed since then that some of their special deals happen on Tuesday’s. Sometimes…

They do tend to run out of some of the more popular items (black/white) rather quickly with sales, that’s why I’ve been loading up slowly…10-20 at a time…it also helps pace my budget.
