I’m not sure that something like this would work with your theme, but I tie-dyed my table runners in our wedding colors. We were going very casual, and love to tie dye, so it made sense.

We made our table runners (well my wonderful mother in law to be did!). 

I found a fairly cheap fabric that I liked in our color scheme and had it shipped to her. They turned out amazing and are really going to ‘make’ the look of our tables.  Total cost to us was $70 (for the fabric).

Do you know anyone who could make them?… Or you could even pay someone to do it, a local tailor something… I can’t imagine it woul be that expensive since they are a very simple pattern.

I got my fabric from fabric.com  – it is a Premier Prints fabric… they have a lot of nice prints and color combos.


As an example, here’s some that might fit your colors (they have a bunch in grey and lavender):

I got various colourful quilting fabrics from Harts Fabric and cut it down to size.

Oh and after the wedding, I’m going to make a wedding quilt from the fabric!

… Actually, I’m only having table runners since I wanted the wedding quilt so now it’s dual function Tongue Out

This might be more traditional than you’re looking for, but I’m doing lace table runners! Here’s a picture of one on my ping-pong table:

@likelimeade:  Where did you find the lace for the runner?  I’m trying to find something similar that won’t need to be cut to the right width.
