Hi everyone!It’s been a busy weekend and a busy Monday and Tuesday too! We are changing the company we’re using for our reception linens! I got a postcard in the mail over the weekend advertising a special with coverupslinens.com. It said: Ask about our 2009 Early Booking Special. $2.69 for any color Basic Cover & Organza Sash – just mention offer #BB209 when booking. Includes shipping. For orders booked prior to March 31, 2009. Their e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org and their phone is 877-777-6417. They are out of Roswell, Ga., and can overnight ship to all of Alabama and Georgia and I would guess they can ship a lot further too! It just so happens that I will be attending a wedding on March 21 in Atlanta and my mom will be attending a bridal shower on March 22, so we are going over to the Coverups Linens showroom on March 21 to make our selections. They told us that would not be too late, woohoo! (c: A nice sales rep sent my mom a couple swatches over e-mail that I like:
Sparkle blue organza chair sash
White polyester chair cover
