I need 16 132″ round white tableclothes (poly/polyblend/whatever – I care not, just no plastic). I’ve always heard you can buy them cheaper for renting…but I have yet to see this. I can rent them for $14. The cheapest I’ve found them to buy is $11.81/each from Smarty Had a Party, but shipping is $40!
I’ve found them cheaper than that on amazon, but I had to buy a lot of 20 and I’m not interested in buying more so I can get a cheaper per piece price since the total would be more. I’m not interested in buying used since they could be gross/stained.
Anyone have any other leads?

@StL.Ashley: I think it just really depends on how much renting costs in your area. For me, renting would have run me way over budget. Since you have nearly a year to go, you could wait it out a bit and check out sales. I just bought a bunch from linentablecloth.com on sale, and got a great deal (the sale is over now). The other thing to take into consideration is you can resell linens you buy, reducing the cost further.

I’m looking at linens myself. Check out linentablecloths.com. It’s a website that I stumbled upon. It seems to have quality table linens at an affordable prices especially in comparison to just renting them. I’m planning on selling them when I’m done.

@StL.Ashley: Are you opposed to buying them used? We needed a ton of linens so all of mine were purchased from previous brides at $5 or less per cloth (including shipping, when applicable). I’ve spent around $300 and I have 44 rectangular, 14 rounds, 30 runners, 25 overlays, 104 chair sashes (still need more) and 80 chair covers (still need more). I still need napkins though too. I will resell after my wedding for half of what I paid as well, so the total cost will be very little.
Craiglist is a great place to search, especially in a larger city. Avoiding shipping charges is the key.

We got our table cloths for $10 each at Big Lots – spent $113 for 10 cloths in various sizes (the $13 because of the Ontario tax). They were all nice brocade cloths that have at this point hold up really well through 2 washes. I’m so pleased with them, so if you have a Big Lots close to you I definitely think it’s work looking into.
