- Wedding: August 2010
I am getting married in August of 2010 and I am in DESPERATE need of some help/advice. We are having our reception in a beautiful tent outside with 350 guests.
Now for a little background on our wedding…
I like to shop, and I like bargain shopping even more 🙂 I found a caterer that serves amazing food for a whopping $8.25 a plate, I bought my dress for less than $500, my mom does floral work so she is doing all of our decor, the Dj we wanted was $1400 originally and I ended up booking him for $499 and found an awesome website that does amazing invites for me and I will only be spending $150 🙂
I dont like to think that I am cheap, but that it is more of a game for me. I try to “win the game” as far as finding cheaper table linens, overlays, and runners…but I am losing the battle on this one! We have the money to splurge on things, but I would rather not splurge on the tables that people will only sit at for a couple of hours. Layering the tables are gorgeous, but I just cant justify spending all that money when you are only seeing the top layer. Our color is persimmon (I would explain it as a brick orange??), which makes this even harder to find colored linens for less than $10. Ivory is another color and I just dont think that in a big white tent that ivory linens is going to give anyone to “talk about” as far as being blown away by something so elegant. Please help if you know of any websites where you can buy or rent table linens for less than $10!!
