@minipenguin:  Bar and dessert table sound great. Maybe the table for gifts/with your guest book as well? I love sequined table cloths and have been thinking about this as well..  I really want to do our sweetheart table with a sequined table cloth, but I’m worried it would snag on my dress!

I too am wanting sequin tablecloths.  My plan is using them only in the reception area, I want to do one for the head table, one for the cake table, and possibly doing table runners for the guest tables, but not sure how it will look on rounds.  Hadn’t thought about using them in the cocktail space, the cost for these adds up so quickly!!!! 

@jessicadarling:  Ekkks!!!  I would die if my dress got snagged, maybe I want to re-think the head table!!!

@minipenguin:  Bar, dessert table and gift/guestbook table would work. You could also do the escort card table if you are having one. In other words key tables where people don’t have to sit (they are incredibly itchy that is no exaggeration) and yes they do snag certain fabrics.

As for tying the tables you could use a satin ribbon or something shiny to match the luster of the sequins cloths.

@minipenguin:  That’s amazing, thank you! I buy everything on amazon, ha! I’m not even engaged yet (very soon!) but we may not get married until earlt 2015. Maybe I’ll just buy yours off of you 😉

 

 @kellynn323:  Nightmare, right? Maybe if it was the most perfect and snag-free sequined fabric ever haha!

I’m doing the ceremony table, then having it moved to the sweetheart table.

The only difference is that my fabric isn’t sequin, it’s glass beaded upholstery fabric. So it’s heavy, but not snagg-y.

I am doing runners for the escort card table, guestbook table and cake table and a tablecloth for the sweetheart table 🙂

We did all our guest tables in sequins and had no snagging complaints at all. But if you are looking for just a few areas, do your cake table and dessert table, that way it’s cohesive.

@atlbride2013:  Did you rent or buy?  If you bought mind telling me from where?  I would really love to do all my tables in sequin, but it seems like a waste of money since the venue offers gray, ivory or white linens…Thanks!!

@kellynn323:  We rented, but we had them made custom to rent because a lot of rental options are overlays, meaning they don’t cover the table fully.  It’s not a big deal to most people, but I was kind of obsessive about not having the white satin peeking underneath. Yes, it definitely adds up because you also have to factor in the cost of the underlay, so it starts to push it to $130-$150/per linen range. We did our round flanking guest tables/cake table/dessert tables in the sequins, but we did our main estate table in a pretty ivory silk chiffon. I highly recommend working with “i do linens”, tamara was very easy to work with and had the best selection I’d seen aside from La Tavola on the west coast.

maybe your escort card table, or a display table (for gifts, in-memory-of photos, or old family photos)? I wish I had thought to do these when I got married!

What about having it for an arbor draping if you are doing a more glamourous wedding? I think it is beautiful and sparkling!!!
