Oh god, the horror of tacky wedding tablecloths! This goes for their partner in crime, the equally tacky chair coverings. It’s a hot mess of satin and bows and tulle….oh my!

I get that some women think that this looks nice, if you google “wedding linens” its one picture after another of this look. So obviously I am the odd man out thinking this is awful. But alas its my wedding and I can hate some tacky stuff if I want to.I also get that some people might think this is kind of a petty thing to worry about. Obviously you have not met me, because I hate nothing more than things that are tacky.

The problem being when looking online for linen tablecloths, the prices are THROUGH THE ROOF. I’m talking $65-$200 per tablecloth! HA!

If that idea is a but than I have also loved the look of doing mix and match vintage and thrift store tablecloths like these:
Which brings up all the possibilities of using thrifted dishes too…hmmm….
