First Things First: Before getting any accessories or decorations for your wedding or event you want to make sure that you have the right color so things don't start clashing. Here at Rocky Mountain Rental we have 30+ colors to choose from in 3 different fabrics: Satin, Polyester and Organza. Each fabric provides a slightly different shade and is important to look at all the pictures listed. 

Help Choosing Your Colors:  Now is the time to find out which venue you will be in. The colors of the walls and carpets are important to evaluate so they don't battle with your colors.

Trending colors: 2014 is the color for blues! We offer 5 different shades of blue: Navy, Turquoise, Baby, Caribbean and Royal

Autumn colors such as Chocolate, and Copper will always be traditional complementary colors and look great with any blue. Burlap linens are popular table runners and chair sashes to give your colors a little bit of texture and that old-fashioned feel. Other strong color combos this year are chocolate/lemon, copper/ivory and chocolate/pink.

Linen SizesWhen ordering your linens, be sure to know your table sizes and also chair types. Linens come in two length for every table. Full or half draped. Linens that go all the way to the floor are great for indoor events and extra classy events. Fully draped are a necessity for Chiavari Chairs. Outdoor venues look better with half draped linens and are easier for guests to slide in and out of the table.

Napkin Tip:  Order extra napkins! Planner tend to forget this detail and is utilized by serving staffs as well as guests. A 10-20% surplus on napkins beyond your guest count should be sufficient. 

Remember that during our peak months table linens can be in high demand and is necessary to order at least a month in advance to guarantee your reservation. Call one of our salesman to talk about options and further tips.
