That space is beautiful! And so are the tables! I totally think you can skip the tablecloths!

I would use the white tablecloths and skip the burlap runners. Mainly because there is SO much wood. Something to break the wood theme would make for a brighter look.

Of course, if it’s really going to break the bank, then it’s not a necessity.

kitkat1234:  That’s going to be a beautiful venue. Honestly, regardless of $$, if I had that venue I would probably skip the white tablecloths anyway! I think the burlap and wildflowers will look beautiful and give it a really natural/rustic look. The fact that you’ll be saving money = even better!! I get what a PP said about there being too much wood but when it’s full of people I don’t think you’ll even notice that.

The space is gorgeous and so are those tables! I’m another vote for skipping.

I don’t think you need the tablecloths but I’m not too sure about the burlap runners. Could you do a different color runner so it isn’t so much brown or do an ivory burlap

BEAUTIFUL! I abosultely love it! The tables are great! I wouldn’t want to cover them up, the table legs look like logs, so cool!!!

I think the tables are light enough that the burlap runner won’t get washed out, and once you put the flowers on them it will be sooooo pretty! Love it!

I like the wood and I also think that once people are sitting it will look really nice.  I’d definitely keep the candles and I personally would go with light or bright flowers vs. any dark colors.
