Table Linens - HELP!
Posted 19 January 2007 - 04:29 PM
I spoke with Emeiline at the Hilton about this and she said that using the 6' banquet tables she could seat 6 people at each table - that means that our table will be 42' long. That sounds huge to me but I figured that I could shape it like a horseshoe or something if the length becomes an issue. Does that sound huge to anyone else? I am not thinking that guests on one end will be trying to talk with guest on the other end - but don't want it to look silly either.
I got a list of the colors of table linens that the hilton offers. I was thinking of going with black linens with black chair covers and white chair bows and using fushia as the accent color. The pink looks great next to the black and it makes it really dramatic. I was going to have to bring the table runners from home since the Hilton does not offer the fushia color but I was willing to do that. According to Emelines email the hilton does not have black table linens for the rectangular tables - she checked with a rental company they use and they do not have them either. Now what. I asked her to let me know what colors she does have for the rectangular tabels but haven't heard back from her yet.
Am I the first one to want something other than round tables at my reception? This seems like such a simple thing - table linens - but it makes a huge impact on the other colors that I can use for my flowers and decor! I am going to go insane!

If you want, I can ask her which rental agency the Westin uses.

Tammy - good idea about brining them from home but I have no idea where to buy these and how much they would cost. I know the tables are 6' long. Any suggestions on where to buy these from?

I'm planning to use rectangular tables and have them in a horseshoe shape. I'm going to put the bridal party at the end. I thought that this would have a more intimate feel than having round tables. I didn't ask about black linens. I'm planning to use the white table cloths provided by the Sheraton and bring my own pink/fushia and gold table runners (which I'm making myself).
By the way, my horseshoe is going to be very long...probably 4-5 tables on each side.
I did get a name of a rental company in Cabo that I considered using for table runners, but I don't know if they have black linens. I don't have my wedding book with right now, so I can't post the contact info right now. I'll post it for you this weekend. Also, did you try Fun and Motivation?

Trust me...once the day comes it will really not matter so don't stress too much! Remember that people will be looking at the view and not the tables, I promise!
