Linens are a very important element of your wedding. They can have a dynamic impact on the theme of your reception, just by adding a significant amount of color to your space. Textures, patterns, and fabrics of different linens all play into the effect of creating the perfect tablescape for your special day. At OAR, we have a huge assortment of specialty linens, from sequins and satin to lace, sheers, and more, in a wide range of sizes and colors. We are happy to help you mix and match linens to create the tablescape of your dreams!
A lot of thought will go into the process of selecting of your linens. Often an underlay and overlay cloth are both used on the table, sometimes followed by a table runner, and finally place napkins. The table underlay is the basic solid colored cloth that provides a base for your table setting. The overlay goes over top the underlay and is usually more decorated or textured, adding extra emphasis and design. The optional table runner can be used traditionally to run the length of the table, or often it is bunched only in the middle section of the table or sometimes placed at different angles. The napkins are important pieces to your table setting and are typically the same color as the underlay cloth if you are using both an underlay and overlay.
Chair covers are frequently used, sometimes as a full chair cover or as a chair tie or sash that simply hangs around the upper portion of the chair back – often both the full cover and tie are used to together. If you chose to use chair covers or ties, they can be matched with your table linens or a different base to provide even more dimension.
