Personally, as a guest I wouldn’t notice if the linens weren’t floor length. I’d be focused on the tablecloth and lighting on the table. To me it wouldn’t matter too much. 

I was just looking at pictures of my venue and I’m wondering about the length of the linens as well! I’m going to have to dig out my papers and figure it out with you! Even then, if they aren’t floor length, I don’t plan on changing it. I’m going to spend the money elsewhere.

Honestly, I just found out my linens weren’t floor length yesterday! Yup 5 months after my wedding while looking at pictures. 

I didn’t notice on my wedding day and so I doubt my guests noticed either!

Personally, I hate seeing table legs. How much extra is it for the floor length?

I hate floorlength linens (as a guest). They always get in my way, I’d rather have shorter linens so I can spread out without having to hike up the linens. But that’s just me 🙂 I like the look of both pictures. I think the first one is so cute-sy! Maybe because I’m not used to seeing them that short, but they look wonderful!

I would imagine that the second picture is probably considered to be floor length, with the first one being standard.

If it’s in the budget and it means that much to you, the floor length would look great. But I think that the standard length ones are awesome, too.

Honestly… I cannot remember the length of table cloths at a SINGLE wedding I’ve ever been to. No one will notice, and if they do, they won’t care. I think that we often get caught up with every last detail, but quite frankly, no one cares if they’re sitting at tables with standard or floor length linens. They are there to celebrate your special day with you and enjoy the happiness of your marriage.

And if someone seriously has the audacity to judge you based on your table cloths, their priorities are WAY out of whack, and I would reconsider their invitation.

So, to answer your question: NO! It doesn’t matter! Your wedding will be awesome no matter what, because you’re marrying the love of your life and people want to come share in your joy.

It depends too if the table legs are big metal ones or nicer wood ones. Is it worth $100 to me personally (if I were the bride)? Yes. Is it worth $500 to me? No. If I were a guest at your wedding I likely wouldn’t notice. I think in pictures it looks more polished to have full length though. 

Are you using the chairs in the photos?

I actually am getting shorter linens on purpose. Floor length trips me up and just gets in my way.

As a guest, it wouldn’t matter to me at all. I’m too busy staring at what’s on top of the table to notice the length of the tablecloth! Also, I think the length will be less noticeable in your case compared to the photos you shared since you’re using dark purple linens. 🙂

@arenyth: Would the venue be willing to do a table mock up for you so you can decide how you like it or if you want to upgrade?

Honestly as a guest I have never paid attention to the length of the linens, I definately didnt notice!! I wouldnt worry about it too much if you cant get them floor length…im sure it will be beautiful regardless!
