Linens, Linens, Linens!

Want to keep things light and bright for your Chicago spring and summer time classic feel event? Then this is the blog post for you, especially if you already have your flowers and center pieces picked out and are a little lost on which linens to choose from. More so than not – linens aren’t usually the first thing that come to mind when planning the decor for your reception or big corporate party. However, it is one important detail you do not want to over look, because believe it or not, it can make a huge difference in the outcome. (Especially for pictures!) Linens are the most inexpensive way to change the look of a room.

You may not realize it now, but deciding on your linens is very crucial when it comes to start planning your reception or corporate event. Again, if you are leaning more towards a spring and summer time wedding, I have a few tips and tricks up my sleeve to share with you.

Are your flowers more on the lighter and brighter side? If they are white, blush, ivory, or a light yellow then you may want to go with a linen that that has some designs, sparkle, small patterns to make your flowers pop as well. If your wedding is going to be held in the spring time, then you may want to consider having a light green, pale blue, or a plain sheer overlay colored linen that could be on more of a light champagne side. Lighter and brighter colored linens can brighten the room as well.

For example, going ivory or white is always a safe choice, it will make your flowers stand out and most guests attention are drawn to the center pieces anyway. Suggested colors would be lilac purple, blush pink, or even a gold linen!
