I personally abhor unoriginal, drab white banquet hall table cloths — especially when there are so many wonderful options to spruce up your wedding reception tables. For those couples looking to buy stylish wedding table runners, I scoured Etsy, Minted, and other sites and put together my top 10 list of different runners for several wedding settings.
Your wedding venue may only have one type of table available for your big day – the folding rental table. You know the ones I am talking about: metal legs that fold for easy storage and transport, accompanied by a drab white table cloth. Or, your venue may use more attractive round or elongated tables. In any case, incorporating a nice table runner is a great way to turn that drab white table cloth into something that will harmonize with your wedding theme and really add to the experience for your wedding guests.
As a final bonus, any table runners you do end up buying can be reused or given away as gifts after the wedding!
