Purchase or rent linens?
I met with the event coordinator from the hotel yesterday at the linen rental company. The hotel has only white table cloths so she suggested that we opt for an overlay on the round tables and a patterned tablecloth on the bistro tables that will surround the dance floor, have a couple in the lobby outside of the ballroom and a few that will be outside. We haven't received the invoice yet but my future SIL/MOH seems to think it will be cheaper to purchase the overlays and table cloths than it will to rent them.
If you purchased - where did you purchase from? Would you do it again? If you rented - why did you opt to rent rather than purchase?
I'm on the fence about it because part of me just believes that renting and not having to worry about getting items to the reception space myself will be worth the price but I'm interested to hear your feedback. So shoot . . .
