i actually like the middle look best. Maybe it’s because the pintuck is “flatter” and seems like plates would fit better?  But you have seen it in person so you know best. I am not as wild about the overlay look – or at least not with the linen underneath but again, it’s your style and you just go for what makes you smile. I love vintage! Good luck and hope it all goes great.

I also find the 2nd one looks cleaner! It looks like the other ones would make a messier surface to eat off of. I’m also not crazy about the way the fabric puckers.

I really like the second one. With the other two, I worry about an uneven surface for drinks – and you really don’t want those beautiful tablecloths covered in red wine!

i like 2 and 3, but honestly i dont think anyone would notice the underlay part of 3, so not worth the extra cost, and i notice details! so i say save the $ and go with 2! i second the uneven surface for drinks as well!

My first thought about the thicker fabric is that stemware might tip over if it can’t get a solid footing.  I also sat a table with texture like that once, and it kind of hurt my arms while I was listening to speeches and what not.

I may be biased because I had the pintuck at my wedding, but I’d vote for the middle option based on looks/practicality and price.

Yes, #1 is beautiful.  No, #3 doesn’t look tacky.  Yes, you can tell a difference between #1 and #2.  But will your guests?  ‘Cause they’re not going to see #1.  I have been to too many weddings over the past few years and can’t really recall how the table linens looked.  In my mind they were all just white.  Or off-white? If it’s in the budget to do the one you love – do it.  Anyhoo, I think whatever choice you make, your tables will be beautiful!

I like #2… #1 kind of looks like a comforter.. but a pretty comforter.  LoL.  I think that the puffiness of #1 may make it easier to knock over drinks, too.

I love the third option!!!  But, I didn’t think about wine glasses tipping over and all that. That may be a problem you want to consider when you go back. I’m all about ease and no fuss.

I vote for the middle. Very classy and clean.
