If you’re having a more casual wedding you could use poly-lined paper.  They photograph like linen but they are a third of the price.  I bought mine from MyPaperShop.com.

Mine is in November after yours so I don’t have pictures yet.

Here is a pic of the table that changed my mind and sold me on using paper:

This bride used craft paper:

@Solala:  I ordered pretty much the same color as Mrslongpeacoat and recived them yesterday.  They definitely look better than plastic and fit better in my budget than real linen.  They’re not just paper like the napkins I ordered; they are lined on the back and slightly textured.  Guests won’t have any idea they are paper until they sit down and touch them.  I think it ended up being a smart compromise.

I’m definitely not worried about them ripping but they will likely stain if someone spills a drink on them but that would also happen with a regular tablecloth as well (which is why rental companies have an upcharge for stains when you rent tablecloths.)  The poly-lining seems durable enough for a single event (I wouldn’t reuse them though.)
