Why Should You Rent Wedding Linen Instead of Buying?

The wedding date has been fixed and the planning is in full force. You have a list of items to plan for and one of those important items is wedding linen. But you are not sure whether you should buy or hire wedding linen in Essex.

You may be wondering why rent linen when you can buy and resell it later on. That’s a fair thought. However, several things happen behind the scenes to prepare your wedding linen. Let’s take a look at them so you can make a sound decision.

Wedding Linen Hire Essex Vs Buying – Ironing the Linen

When you purchase linen, you must remember that it won’t come ironed. You must set apart some time to iron the linen several weeks in advance. The tablecloths must be neatly ironed, the napkins pressed and folded in the desired pattern and all other linen must be prepared as well.

When you choose wedding linen for hire in Essex, you won’t have to worry about anything. Your rental linen will come ironed, folded and prepped.

Wedding Linen Hire Essex Vs Buying – Transporting the Linen

Once the wedding linen is prepared, the next aspect to consider is transporting it safely to the wedding venue. You don’t want to end up with crinkled and wrinkled tablecloths. How would you transport your fanned-out napkins all the while ensuring they don’t get crumpled?

When you use Simply Linens, we will carefully transport the linen so it arrives crinkle-free.

Wedding Linen Hire Essex Vs Buying – Removing the Linen

The wedding celebrations went on well and you are all set to reach home and hit the sack. But, wait, you forgot to remove the linen from the tables. You will need some heavy-duty garbage bags for the heavily soiled linen. You may also have to get rid of any extra food sticking to the table linen.

For any linen that’s soiled and wet, you may have to soak it in a stain remover at the earliest. Of course, you will also have to wash it asap.
