Do you have an option of seeing what the table cloths look and feel like maybe by going to a different rental place?

You also have the option of going for a cheap simple table cloth and jazzing it up with a runner or a funky centrepiece and also the choices you make with napkins, flatware, china and stemware. A clean simple table set well can look just as good if not better than a table that almost looks over the top with the amount going on.

sabrina8candy :  Have you looked into buying your linens? You can often save a lot of money. You can buy a floor length polyester tablecloth for less than $10 and an organza overlay for less than $5. What are they charging you to rent? The usual argument against renting is that you have to iron them before the wedding and launder them after, but you can literally give them away after the wedding and still pay less than renting. If you simply launder them for resale, you don’t have to iron them again.

For the Indian wedding, you could also use the tablecloths with an overlay, and use them on their own the next night. You can probably get away with throwing the tablecloths in the dryer with a damp towel, then hanging them up before the first wedding. If you cover them with an overlay, any remaining wrinkles will have fallen out before the second wedding.

My Fiance works at a party rental company and at my reception my linens are poly poplin. Honestly, the last thing your guests are going to remenber about your wedding is what material the table cloth is. Poplin is a very common, looks good, and fufills its intended purpose. Good Luck Bee!
