I'm a bit new to the board, although I've had a Knot account for awhile now. I am getting married Sept. 1st 2012 in Portsmouth. I've got a caterer in mind for my reception hall, but the problem here is that they do not provide any of the flatware/dishware/linens/glassware.
I know buying glasses and such is a hassle and would be tough to store afterwards or get rid of, but what is everyone's stance on buying vs renting tablecloths and napkins? My caterer said the average running price of renting tablecloths is $20 avg. per table... which I think is crazy!! I made some general searches online for tablecloths and it looks like they're around 10 bucks per table, depending where you buy.
I'm trying to trim some of the money off my budget. Not sure if anyone out there has done this but I'd like any feedback if possible! Any suggestions where to buy/rent would be great. My hall has recommended Exeter Rent-All for me.
