    I voted for table runners as placemats as it still gives a formal look with a bit of a twist.

    Another option would be to use the runners crosswise on the table to swerve as a placemat for the two people directly opposite each other, but, I think that would take away from the lengthwise flow of your candles if you plan to use them along the entire length of the table.

    I think that traditional table runners look fabulous. While I like the runners as placemats idea, I think that having to get double the runners would kill it for me, especially since runners are already so formal-looking.

    @runsyellowlites: actually uses about the same total length of material as having two lengthwise runners.

    Good idea but how long are your tables? That may be the only problem.
