    I guess it depends on the formality of the event and the quality of the tables. We are having a pretty casual wedding, and our venue comes with lots of rectangular tables that seat about 6. The tables are in pretty good quality, so I feel ok with leaving them as is, but to keep them clean, I might get some disposable tablecloths or something.

    Pictures would help a lot! 

    In my case, we have lovely rectangular tables made of wood and with little sea-rocks in the center, so using clothing would be an awful idea (I think!). But in your case, it really depends on the materials, venue and everything else.

    I love the look of rectangular tables, but our venue offers round tables/chairs included with the price. So I love them, but not enough to pay more than already included round tables. 🙂

    I love the look of rectangular barn tables with a garland runner (that was our dream look) but it was significantly more expensive than a regular banquet table and tablecloth. For reference, in the NW where we are having our wedding, the nice barn tables go for $45 each while the regular banquet tables plus tableclothes are closer to $20. Leafy garlands (no flowers) are about $8 a foot and you would need about 8 feet for a table. 

    If you are desperate to have barn tables, one idea that looks really nice is to do a combo of barn tables intersperced with some round tables with tablecloth. It’s also nice because it breaks up the monotany of a long line of table, which to me sometimes looks too cafeteria-y. I wouldn’t suggesting doing all rectanlge with some bar and some covered though because it would look like you couldn’t afford the nicer tables.
