I’m guessing it would look something like this.  Just a guess though.

I think it will look fine, if you choose the shorter version. You will have a 24″ overhang. We are not having floorlength tablecloths either. Although, I thing floorlength looks really nice, I don’t really think they are necessary, and I am afraid guests will get tangled in them.

@lindsaybrooke24: I am lucky, our venue is supplying our tablecloths. I know that a lot of bees choose to buy fabric to make their own tablecloths, but unless you are going for a very extravegant design, I highly suggest renting them. You can usually rent your linens at the same place you get your tableware from and some caterers will also provide that as one of their add on services. If you think their prices are too high, make sure to ask for a discount; they expect you to ask, so don’t feel bad for asking. The worst that can happen is they will say no.

For reference, at our reception, we had both 60″ and 72″ tables, and put 120″ tablecloths on all of them.  The gap at the bottom on the 72″ tables was really not noticeable.  Here is a picture during set-up.  The 72″ tables are the ones in which the center of the three mirrors is larger than the other two.

Oh, and we bought all our tablecloths.  It was cheaper than renting initially, plus we were able to resell them after the wedding.  A list of our sources can be found at this link.  You may also want to check on eBay, as sometimes the companies sell linens for less on there than on their own sites.
