    Ooooh girl I’m SO jealous! *Love* the look of hardwood tables, but to get them at our venue would be like $200+ per table (yikes.) Can you post any pics of what your tables would look like? I’m envisioning farm tables, in which case I’d say linens would just be unneccessary. I’m posting a couple of photos I saved as “inspiration shots” of hardwood tables…let us know what you end up deciding!

    I think it depends on how formal your wedding is…  If your wedding is on the informal side, then don’t bother with table clothes.  However, if your wedding is more formal, I think you need to table clothes to coordinate with the formality of your wedding.

    The other thing you could do that would be a good compromise would be table runners.

    I agree.  It depends on the formality and look you’re going for.

    It depends on the theme of your wedding.  If it is rustic chic, I say go without the tablecloths.  If you’re in a fancy ballrooms, tablecloths are needed!

    @truitjen: from what you just described no table cloths! if it isn’t super formal and your tables are beautiful you should show them (and save a ton of money) =)

    I would say a table runner that is slightly wider then your centerpiece and are floor length would also be a beautiful option if you want to “dress” it up a little. And can also help camouflage the “joints” were the tables meet pushed together.

    But not necessary if you want to cut out an extra expense altogether!

     

    If they provide beautiful tables at the venue take advantage and show them off!

    Good Luck!

    We had a similar situation, and my Mother-In-Law convinced me to use tablecloths anyway (white ones, under the burlap table runners I sewed).  Initially, I just did it to make her happy, cause really – who cares, it’s a tablecloth!  But I’m glad we did it, as it did enhance the idea that it was a special occasion and not just a family reunion (we had a pretty casual/rustic wedding) and made the other elements of the tablescape that we had DIYed pop.

    I can’t say either way for you…. but I was glad in the end that I took MIL’s advice.

    I would love to have hardwood tables. One of the venues that we were considering and th eone that I fell in love with actually had those types of tables. Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, we had to go with another venue.

    table runners if cost allows – if there are any unlevel parts of the table, as rustic wood might have, the cloth in the middle will help some things stay put that might toggle or roll
