I just found out the venue we’re looking at does not provide table linens. We’re trying to come up with a budget but I have no idea about how to start with linens? Do you rent them? Should I buy? Where is the best place to buy? We have a limited budget but I don’t want the place to look like a cheap kids birthday party!

I am buying them because locally they rent for around $7 and buying them is not much more so I’d rather own them if I’m going to spend that much money and then maybe I can resell them afterwards.
I’d check out Sam’s Club, Costco, eBay… places like that. http://www.linentablecloth.com seems to have pretty good prices for me since I’m ordering so many they give pretty good discounts. I need 90×156 tablecloths and they’ll run me about $11 shipped a piece all said and done.
There’s also linen-like table cloths that are supposed to feel more like linen but they’re still kind of papery, IMO. The cost is probably half that of a real linen table cloth. Party City has them and http://www.partyatlewis.com, the linen-like ones are everywhere. I think eBay has them too.
