    If I were you, I’d get the half, and have money for other things at your wedding.  I’m sure it will look gorgeous with half, and yes, the chair will cover it as well.  And don’t worry…I always overthink things 🙂

    If you are on a tight budget, I would just do the overlays. I really wanted full length tablecloths too, and/or overlays. I have since decided that I do not want to spend the extra money for linens. The tablecloths that the venue provides will be sufficient for us. I just couldn’t justify the extra cost. We are also being provided with Chiavari chairs and the venue it quite elegant, so I think we will be fine with what we are doing. For you, you just need to decide if that is where you want your money to go or if you would rather it go toward something else that is more important to you.

    are you sure the fabrics are the same? i would do the overlays as long as you’re sure that they aren’t different sheens or anything so they look the same.

    I’m struggling with the same question myself, splurge for the full or go with overlays. The only concern I would have with the black on black is that blacks can look very different from each other.

    @arose29: I just asked my fiance and he said, “haha, who is even going to tell.”  So I guess that answers that.

    I couldn’t agree more.

    We were debating this issue ourselves and actually tested out the look at our venue during one walk through appointment. To be honest you couldn’t tell unless you really looked. With chairs, people, legs and everything else in the way you can’t tell.
