Ugh!! That sucks so much! Good luck making them!!

PS – have you looked at stores like WalMart and Michaels? You might be able to purchase some linen tablecloths fairly inexpensive. Also, if you have more than a week, http://www.linentablecloth.com/ has great prices.

Venues can usually order any color…so why can’t they order white in CLOTH? That’s rediculous! Was it in your contract? If it was ,they should have to get them for you!

If your contract says linens I would say they are obligated to give you linens, not plastic. I would definetly make them provide linens for that day at their expense!

I agree with bblove.  If your contract had white “linens” then they are obligated to provide linens or pay for rentals.  (Or pay for what you have purchased to make yourself.)  I think that’s craptastic that they didn’t call you to tell you they had switched to plastic.  If I were you, I would double check on EVERYTHING with them now.

If your running out of time there are lots of linens for sale in the classifieds on weddingbee! My venue provides plasticware to eat on and china is an upgrade! I was shocked, but since I am not having a backyard bbq wedding then china is a must!
