The easiest way to transform a banquet table is with a beautiful linen! Table linens play a crucial role in setting the ambiance and adding a touch of elegance to your wedding reception. From crisp whites to intricate lace overlays to rich colors and fabrics, the options are truly endless, allowing you to personalize your wedding decor and create the atmosphere you’ve always imagined. Here at Marianne’s, we manufacture our own linens, setting us apart from other rental companies with the largest selection of linens in Oklahoma.

Chargers are the perfect addition to your wedding reception place settings, adding a layer of opulence to each table while serving as the focal point for your place settings. These decorative plates serve as a stylish base for the rest of your tableware and create a visually stunning presentation, giving your place settings a complete look. Our Chargers come in a variety of materials and finishes, providing the perfect complement to your unique reception style.

While your florals will likely take center stage when it comes to your table decor, selecting a few carefully curated decor items can take your tables to the next level. Decor items like candles and candle holders, vases, mirror balls, and other small decor items can add that extra personal touch, while bringing life and personality to your tables and place settings. 

Reception Chairs

You’ve selected your linens, perfectly crafted your place settings, and chosen the perfect decor accents – the only problem is bland banquet chairs are ruining the whole look.
