    Mine did almost reach the floor (maybe shorter then the floor by like an inch) but if it makes you feel any better I couldnt remember and had to go check my pictures! I doubt people would notice too much either way.

    Mine were 3/4 to the floor. They looked fine and imo it was easier to get your legs under the table than the ones that go all the way to the floor. lol

    I really didn’t want to see table legs so I chose linens that went to the floor. I bought them online and was able to sell them after the wedding.

    Umm, I haven’t really thought about it… but I looked at our wedding pictures and they reached all the way to the floor!  🙂

    I actually have no clue – Who can remember that tiny detail?!  I’m wracking my brain sitting here and without looking at photos I wouldn’t know.  I’m trying to think of other weddings I’ve been to and I can’t remember either!  I suppose they’re almost to the floor if I had to guess. 

    Will you really see the legs once the chairs are all pushed in (with those coverings) and people everywhere?  I doubt it.  What if you asked for extra to stick 2 on a table? – split half and half so they fall further down on each side – then some sort of centerpiece or runner in the middle to hold it in place.

    If it really bugs you, then get the full drop.  Ours didn’t reach all the way to the floor (maybe 3/4) and I preferred full-drop.  But, honestly, it didn’t really matter to me in the end and the cost associated with renting full-drop cloths was better spent elsewhere.

    p.s.  and, I bet if I were to poll our guests, they wouldn’t be able to tell me if if they were full drop or not.

    Basic floor drop tablecloths aren’t that expensive. I’d just get them. It’s when you get the fancy fabrics/textures/patterns that the price gets crazy. I would look back at my wedding photos and kick myself for not getting them!

    @bride123: At first I was fine with the linens that were offered (that did not go to the floor), but after seeing them at our venue next to tables with floor length I made the switch.

    I’m voting other because I honest have absolutely no idea! That’s one of those details that I didn’t even think to notice on the day of, and certainly don’t remember now. 🙂

    I bought mine online so they would go all the way to the floor.  I saw some pictures of my venue set up with the short cloths on them and really didn’t care for the look.  We are having a semi-formal evening wedding with black and ivory so the cheap-o table legs would really stand out.  Next thing on my list is covering those really ugly chairs.

    I have mostly guy friends and we acutually were hanging out the other day when me and my Fiance were discussing tablecloths and I said I wasn’t sure about the material I bought to make tablecloths dropped enough on each side but they said it was a good thing because they can’t stand fighting with the tablecloth.
