We had 18 table cloths and FI steamed about 3 of them, and then we just put 2-3 in the dryer on the wrinkle free setting, and that took all of the wrinkles out! We decorated about 30 hours before the wedding as well, and I noticed that the ones for the food tables we rented and didn’t do anything too still had creases in them, so I wouldn’t suggest not doing anything about the wrinkles. Try the dryer trick it didn’t hurt the linens in anyway just took out the wrinkles!

We decorated a few hours before the ceremony and the steamer we had took too long to steam each one. I felt like there were so many other things to do, we just left the linens wrinkled.  I think most of the wrinkles fell out or weren’t notcied once the runners and centerpieces were placed on top.  If you’ve got time, see if you can get a few irons or steamers borrowed so it doesn’t take so long to get them ironed.

We had them all ironed and then hung them on hangers. They weren’t put on the tables until the day of but we didn’t have any problems with wrinkles.

I had to iron them which was A PAIN and took forever i also steamed the sashes and overlays.  but i wish i knew of the dryer trick try that first much less time consuming! I skipped ironing the chair covers and they looked fine 🙂

If you put a damp dishrag with a similar color to the linens in the dryer with them it will help steam most of them out. I also used the wedding as an excuse to buy a steamer. Best purchase yet, I use it for everything.

my future aunt-in-law (??) ironed them for me, and i was soooo thankful.  ask one of your bridesmaids, or family member to iron for you.
