When you see a wedding venue transition from a blank palette to a beautiful, picturesque celebration, it is easy to see the parts that make the whole. You get to see the before and after, which can be enhanced with the ease of linen. Linen changes a room into something fantastic and impressive.Most of the time, banquet facilities (including hotels, resorts, reception halls, &restaurants) entice you with linen covered chairs and fancy table linens to attract you to their venue. However, keep in mind that those are usually EXTRAS. Typically the chairs are unattractive, overused, and uncovered, and the table linens are VERY basic. It is not necessary to rent new chairs for the room. In fact, you can help your photographer by creating a colorful display at your reception. Chair décor is not what it used to be. It has evolved into an industry unto itself.
There are many styles of chair covers and many sash tying techniques. It is wedding fashion!
The ease and convenience of renting the covers and sashes from a company means they set it up, they take them down, and they clean the items. Some couples prefer to purchase their own (either from linen companies or from web sites where brides sell their wedding linens) and hire someone to set them up.
Below are some links to companies from which you can purchase your own items, companies in Hawaii from which you can rent the items, and some information regarding the various ways to tie your sashes. Purchase:http://www.chaircoverfactory.com
