No one will notice and long table cloths just get tangled in my legs and annoy me. I personally have never noticed what the chairs look like at a wedding either so I would do the free ones and spend the money on stuff like more/better food and booze.

@marinesfiance:  as long as the chairs are comfortable for guests to sit on, it shouldn’t make a difference!  I truly don’t think anyone will remember the color.  I actually don’t remember the length of tablecloths at any of the weddings I’ve been to, so I don’t think its that important.  since your reception is outdoors, I would consider shorter tablecloths (seems more appropriate somehow).

@marinesfiance:  I’m with the pp’s as far as the chairs are concerned.If you really have to do something, you could make little slipcovers for just the backs of the chairs.

I think shorter cloths are easier for your guests especially at an outdoor wedding where the chairs don’t slide as easily. Is your price estimate based on renting or buying the tablecloths? Sometimes it is less expensive in the long run to buy them then sell them after the wedding.

@marinesfiance:  You can make those ties with sashes that you buy inexpensively from places like CV Linens, Tableclothsfactory etc.

The rufffled chaircovers are expensive and come from places like Wildflower Linens, La Tavola and Resource One. There is a DIY spiral cut version you can do yourself.

Remember that you can also buy the banquet cloths used for a good price then sell them again.
