What about the heavy duty paper ones that have a linen-like feel? You’ll get a cheaper cost without screaming “WE HAVE A SMALL BUDGET!”

Where are you getting married?  Often venues will provide regular white ones.  Even if they’re not provided, I think plain white linens are fairly cheap to rent…

I think the level of formality of your event would determine how “okay” they would be (I suppose your opinion does too!)

While linens are really nice, they can be pretty expensive to rent. Is it possible that in the event that you have no other option but the vinyl table cloths that you could save them for the tables that guests wont be sitting at? (like if you have a table for gifts, guest book or food etc), and then use the linens provided by the church for the tables where guests will be seated?


I am definitely interested in learning more about these paper but linen feel table cloths –and the relative cost.

@cyndistar3: No, skip the plastic. Martha Stewert has some creative tableclothes, using wall paper for runners, etc. What kind of tables will you have? Do you mean potluck as in your guests will have to bring food for the reception?

You know what I say…if it fits your budget then go for it.  Really, no one is going to remember that your wedding had plastic table cloths.  They are going to remember the good time that they had celebrating your wedding with you.

If people are only going to remember table cloths at your wedding then they need a life.  I would be more focus on celebrating than anything else.  

I’ve been to all types of wedding, backyard BBQ’s to formal invents…I can’t say that I can clearly remember all the table cloths are each function.
