Today, linen details are at the forefront of decorating for any event, from weddings to anniversaries to fund-raising. This small and affordable detail is actually one of the first things your guests will notice when entering the room. Why not make your guests and yourself feel that much more special on such an important day? There are a wide variety of choices when selecting linens, chair treatments and napkins. Is your event formal or casual? Are you the type of person who wants an understated look or a wow look? Do you have a vision that you are trying to create? All of these questions will help your linen provider be able to narrow down the many choices of fabrics you will have to select from. When visiting potential linen companies, be prepared to be asked many of the following questions. 

These questions will help the provider to gain all information during your appointment so that you will not have to worry about any of the final details once your appointment is over:
1. Estimated number of guests 
2. Quantity and sizes of tables 
3. Florist 
4. Cake Person 
5. Facility 
6. Start time of event 
7. Ceremony and wedding at same location? 
8. Candles being used.
