Is anyone here using Linen Like products to cover their reception tables? Anyone have experience with them. They’re supposed to “look and feel” like linen, only they’re disposable paper. I’m searching for a way to cut down on the cost of reception details, and renting real linens for 20+ tables really adds up!
I may have to go buy a tablecloth and just see for myself, but wanted to see if these were a worthy save or were just tacky. Here’s a link with more info: http://www.mypapershop.com/linen-table-covers.html.

I wont vote because I havent seen them, but they sound like they are worth buying one to test and see! Post about it (with pictures) when you find out!

I really like them and am using them for a kids table at a wedding that I am doing. They feel and look like real linen but the parents won’t have to worry about the kids messing the table up!

I guess if they really do look that good then great! I see though they only see them in a case and not in anything less. If I remember right each cloth worked out to be around $7.00—-which is cheaper than renting, at least here in Colorado Springs. It was around $16 I think to rent for a 5′ table.

My cousin used disposable table clothes. They looked real, felt fake, but not plastic by any means. They were nice for what they were.

Wow, they look like they are worth trying, maybe. I would definitely order a sample first to test the quality.
But, I noticed that they don’t have truly round linen-like cloths, just a thought if you have round tables at you wedding.
I found some really good quality linens at reasonable prices. The linen rental is so expensive in my city that I ended up buying all of my linens for less than I could rent them on this site: http://www.tableclothsfactory.com/
I bought tablecloths (guest and serving), runners, overlays, chair sashes, and dinner napkins for 100 guest wedding for less than $500! And when its all over, I can sell them.
They have a great selection of colors and basic linens. They don’t have any specialty or patterened linens though. They also ship really fast!

I would definately order a sample first. It is the only way you will be able to tell if they look nice.

I got some from partyatlewis.com and I really don’t like them. I’m sending them back and rented linens for our daughters tables. They just don’t feel nice to me, just like Mrsjellybean227 posted.

We bought our linens from LinenTableCloth.com. It was actually cheaper than either renting, or buying the linen-like ones, because we were able to sell them after the ceremony for almost as much as we paid for them.
If you want to get the linen-like ones, you might check out this place, which seems to be even less expensive than the one you linked to.

@2dBride: How much of a hassle was it to re-sell? Do you mind providing your budget/and how much you made? I am currently debating the buy&sell versus buy fake.
