Have you considered burlap runners with lace trim on the edges? Would be easy to DIY also – check ebay for lace trim, I found some amazing vintage lace for only $6 that I used for lots of details in my wedding.

Also, I went to a wedding where they did white lace squares in the center vs. the full runner. Could be an idea to save on cost if you can find the lace fabric? Stores like Hobby Lobby should have some if there is one in your area?

At my reception we used 10″ white paper doilies at each place setting vs. having anything under the centerpieces. I then used real doilies on the sign-in table, bar tables, etc. where I could, that I collected from flea markets and 2nd hand stores for very little money.

@mb072713:  have you looked for lace cafe curtain fabric? I think that would be a good width for you and both sides are finished.

@mb072713:  How wide do you want the runner? I made a 30 foot long lace runner for our head table that looks very similar to the one in your picture. It was double scalloped, and I had to overlap 2 pieces of 10 inch wide scalloped lace trim to make it wider. We just did one long seam in the middle, but it actually looked really nice even with the seam down the middle. The overlap actually looked liked part of the design. I wish that I had pictures of it. I bought the lace trim from http://debslaceandtrims.com. I used a lot of lace in my wedding and so I bought a lot from her. The prices are great, and the lace is really nice. Shipping is reasonable and fast. I got 20 yards of that 10 inch lace trim for only $20. Her inventory varies so you’ll have to check to see what she has right now. Laceheaven.com also has wide lace trims. Their prices are not as low, but not bad. I didn’t order from them though so can’t vouch for the quality.
