I say it’s well worth the $350 if it makes you that happy.  I think you’ll look at the pictures years and years down the road and be glad you did 🙂

I think that’s a decision you’re going to have to make based on what’s important to you.  When you picture your wedding, is the "look" of the wedding (including the tables) something that’s really important?  If yes, then go for it.  If other things are more important (the dress, the photographer, the flowers, etc.), then maybe consider other options or ways to save money on the tables.  Have you looked into finding something similar on eBay or making something yourself to save money?

You have to decide what’s more important, the look or the few hundred that you’ll be saving. The only help I can give you is what I did for my wedding.

I wanted colored table cloths too, but went with a more practial option of having table runners. I actually got extra sashes from my rental and criss-crossed them on the tables. My colors were lilac and light green. So on the tables with green we put lilac sashes and vice versa. It turned out really nice and I was happy with it.

Could you bring your own… I actually looked on ebay last night for wedding linen and you could get each table cover for about $13.

hope this helps…

ok well normally I would say go for it… but I am in same position as you where every dollar counts, and $350 could be put to better use than a table cloth that you cant even re-use (its only a rental)… so lets get creative… I think you should go to venue and have them set up the white cloth with your center piece and the napkins (make sure they put the dim lighting your wedding will have so you can really see what it will look like and take all your favors so you can get the full effect), try different combinations (can you get the centerpiece in blue also?) maybe you could do a pink table and a tiffany blue table or do the chair bows blue and the napkin blue with all pink centerpieces, and depending how you fold the napkins  you can add a pink flower in each place setting or print your menu cards in pink to place in the napkins, you could also scatter pink rose petals on the table to diffuse the white linnen. OR maybe take a tiffany blue napkin (have it ironed so there will be no creases) and put it under your center piece to add color to the table. You can also consider mood lighting it may be cheaper and it will disguise the white linen. Can you just add the nice linen to the important tables (yours, the cake, ect…) the guest tables could be white and let your photographer know to capture the nicer tables. I would just keep playing with it and if all else fails and your are still not happy….. THEN pay the money for the upgrade…

What if you just did a cloth overlay — would it be cheaper?
