 Does your venue provide any of these things?  If not, talk to your caterer.  They probably have linen rental options, but many also buy linens and resell them as it is usually cheaper.   My venue was pretty bare bones and did not provide any of these things, and I got everything from the caterer.  She charged us extra to use real (not plastic) plates and flateware, but it was worth it.

1.Check your contracts to see what is and is not included.

2. You can rent linens, plates, cutlery, glassware from any party supply business.

3.There are pros and cons to both renting and buying linens. If you rent, you may pay more in the end, but the caterer may do the setup if you rent from them, or at least you only have to pick up and return the cloths. If you buy you will have to iron them all, and wash and iron them again after the wedding in order to sell them. Many brides buy their linens and sell them after the wedding to recoup some of their costs. Often you can buy tablecloths for less than it costs to rent them.

   You can buy linens from:






Also check  http://www.recyceldbride.com Craigslist and Ebay

You can check all Craigslist sites at the same time by going to http://www.google.com

enter site:craigslist.org

then add what you are looking for , example,       round tablecoths

It’s always a good idea to do a mockup to see if you like the look. If you go to a local rental place you can do a mockup, then check prices online.
