We used the 72″ overlays and they seem plenty big enough. Depends how much of the table cloth underneath you want to cover.

I would suggest the 90″ – you’ll have 15″ hanging down on each corner.  Double check with your linen place – many of them use 85 & 90 interchangeably. 

Either of those look best and are what is usually used on a 6 ft table.   A 72 will only cover the corners with 6″.

Also, ask your coordinator to send you photos of a set table – you’ll be able to see the linens in ‘action’.  You’ll also be able to see the china they typically use. 

Good luck!
