    I don’t really like polka dots. If you’re having a more formal wedding, I think the damask would be beautiful. But if it’s really casual, the polk dots might work.

    I voted for polka-dots. I think a lot of people do damask, so polka-dots add a little something different! (Then again, damask is probably so popular because it looks great, so I guess you can’t really go wrong).

    My Fiance hates polka-dots, but if he didn’t than I would love to include them! Good luck!

    @MrsAlbright:my thoughts exactly. I think it would be fun!

    And then you could use ornaments in the decor somehow. It wouldnt be overwhelming Xmas, and still be “dots”

    I think you could mix the damask with the polka dots.  Decorators mix patterns all the time. Think a white table cloth, a white runner with a black damask pattern, then a black center square with white polka dots, and red napkins, then red pointsettias as the centerpieces.

    We did black and white polka dots with red and aqua! It ended up looking really awesome, and we had a formal, evening wedding.

    I think damask has had it’s day. It’s done and over.

    Here’s some pictures of my tables. The photogs didn’t get any befor the reception started, so they’re not perfectly set or anything. lol.

    And to show you our very formal room.

    I voted polka dots! i think they are super cute and can definitely be formal as shown by zippylef above! Also, I think damask is pretty overdone. Not that it cant be pretty but I just always like to do things people haven’t done a million times.
