Pay Attention to the Finer Details

Table linens are available in a range of fabrics including cotton, polyester, taffeta, damask, organza and satin. Moreover, these linen fabrics come in a diverse range of designs, patterns, and colours.  Explore the range of styles and designs so you can choose one that goes perfectly with your wedding theme.

It is equally important to choose tablecloths that match the shape and size of the reception tables. We provide table linen for hire in Essex in a range of shapes and sizes!     

Assess Your Requirements

You may also need different types of table linen for your wedding like napkins, chair sashes and cushions, drapes, overlays, runners, and tablecloths.

The wedding reception and ceremony themes will by and large determine the type of linen you need. Every table – from dinner buffet, wedding gifts and guest book to cake and escort cards – will need a tablecloth and a runner.

On the other hand, you’ll need napkins, chair cushions and sashes to protect furniture and guests from unintentional blotches and spills.        

Fabric and Colour

With table linens available for hire in an array of fabrics, designs, and colours, you are simply spoilt for choice.

The majority of brides and bridegrooms opt for polyester table linens as the fabric comes in an assortment of sizes and colours. However, the fact that polyester table linens are supremely affordable is what makes them the top choice for wedding events.  

Choosing taffeta, satin or damask tablecloths and overlays will impart an elegant touch to your wedding theme. Expect to pay more for embroidered, laced or sequinned linens.    


The freedom to choose table linens that perfectly compliment your wedding reception is only limited by your budget. As a renowned table linen hire service in Essex, Simply Linens can help you choose trendy linens for your big day.
