Table runners tend to be pretty cheap. They’re about $2-3 each. I got my wedding linens from Smarty Had a Party and they were great. I got the crinkled taffeta overlays and they looked fantastic! Very nice fabric and you don’t have to iron/steam them.

I bought mine from It was actualy quite a bit cheaper than renting, I already have them, and I’ll sell them after.

@jerbe2813:  besides table runners, which can be purchased and resold after the wedding, you could buy colored napkins and do the same.

Search “where to buy linens” here on WeddingBee for recommendations on vendors. You can also buy used on Tradesy or Adhuntr.

Given that purple flowers are much more common than grey, I would suggest grey runners with purple flowers. Napkins could be grey or purple- or you could use the white napkins provided.

I would also check on Ebay. They have table runners for dirt cheap!!!
