We are doing a BBQ reception too, and the first thing I think with white table cloths is STAINS!!!!!!!! If it’s casual, I’d go with a patterned or colored table cloth just so there aren’t any messy looking tables in photos. 


I’m leaning towards blue gingham, since our main color is blue.

@phillygalks:  The advantage of white cloths is that stains can be bleached.

Having said that, the stains, if there are any, will be more visible during the wedding. I wouldn’t worry too much about stains appearing in pics. Pictures of people eating and messy tables aren’t high on any photographer’s “must do” list.

We are having a casual bbq reception!! our colors are red/black/white so our tables will have alternating black & white linens our centerpieces are small vases with 3 red gerbera daisies with the black centers in each for a color pop… im not worried about stains since i have a 4 year old of my own…stains are a part of life for us. lol
