This might sound silly (and if you have a 300 person wedding, it isn’t really feasible) but could you buy the cheaper portrait oriented ones, detach the hinges, and reattach them so they are landscape?  If you’re going to paint them anyway, you could easily cover the original holes, or put the hole-side on the bottom.

Can you make your own with two frames and a hinge?  If you’re painting over them it should be okay.

Those would be about $7 per frame

Michaels has some 4 x 6’s for cheap, but I can’t source it since I only know it from buying a bunch in January.  I think they were $2 a frame, so $4 plus the price of a hing to make something like that?

Sorry I can’t help more.  I’ll keep a lookout!

how many tables do you have?  It might be worth it to just buy them as opposed to saving a few bucks but then having to make them yourself.

@Stammie16:  I hear ya!  Keep in mind you might be able to sell them on craigslist after the fact and recoup some of the money.

I’m glad you found something that would work for you. FYI for anyone else with the same problems, you can buy plain 4×6″ wood frames and get inexpensive piano type hinges. They do not need to be indented into the frames.
