scurll: Do check the size of your tables. You don’t want to try to seat 1o people at a 60″ table.

I think a purple lace runner would look great, but 7″ is too narrow for a runner. It will look like a wide ribbon. It will go through your centerpiece rather than be a base for it.

If you want something that narrow, chair sashes would be a lot less expensive. Most table runners are 12-15″ wide.

I think runners look best if there is about 12-15″ overhang on each side. That is why a standard runner is 108″ long, so that even on a 72″ table it gives a generous overhang.

I also saw tablerunners on tablecloths.com.  I ordered 1 sample and was suprised by the quality.  I think I ordered a standard polyester / satin verison.  Check out their prices and maybe get a tester or two.  I really like the space without a runner, but it is completely up to you.

julies1949: – do check on the size of your tables. I think they look more like 60″ tables – notice how they are set for 8-9 guests in the pictures? Venues usually call 60″ rounds “10 person tables” and 72″ rounds “12 person tables”, but really you want 8 at a 60″ and 10 at a 72″. My tables are 72″ and there’s no way I want to shove 12 people at one – even though my venue says they can seat 180 with 15 tables. The size of the table may change how long/wide you want your runners to be. 

What color napkins are you going to have? What are your centerpieces going to be in? I don’t know if you’re crafty, but for my SIL’s wedding my Future Mother-In-Law had ivory table cloths provided by the venue and she bought sheer lacey black curtains from Walmart for like 2 for 7 bucks and sewed two together and created a black lace overlay. It looked great and not DIY at all.

scurll:  You don’t NEED a runner. If you want them, and can afford them, go for it. If not your tables will look lovely without them.

People on this thread will tell you not to sit 10 in a 60″ table. But honestly it’s your wedding and weddings are expensive!they arent paying for anything so do what you want lol! So if you have to do it then just do it!  I’m doing 60″inch tables with 10people each because that’s all my venue Offered. I am getting chiavari chairs though because they are more slim and give people more easier access in and out of the tables.

And I say yes to yhe runners if you have extra spending money closer to your big day! If not who cares no one but you will notice they are not there! Just go all out with your centerpiece! 🙂

scurll:  If you want to add just a touch of purple, you could use purple votive holders with an LED light.

Personally I don’t like runners on round tables. They make sense on long tables when you put a runner down the length of the table, but I think on round tables they just look like they’re cutting the table in half arbitarily. I know a lot of people feel differently though, so if you really like runners on round tables you should go for it.

What I would suggest instead would be to sprinkle purple confetti over the tables. If you can get purple metallic heart shaped confetti I think it would look really good, or whatever other shape you can find that you like. I couldn’t find confetti in my colours, so I got a heart shaped punch and spent several evenings watching TV and punching confetti from cardboard leftover from my invitations and some envelopes that I misaddressed.
