Have you thought about what kind of table linens to use for your wedding yet? Your reception dinner tables, cake table, escort card table, cocktail tables, and any additional “decor” tables will require table linens. Most traditional wedding venues provide classic linen tablecloths with your package (in white is usually included; colors at an up-charge) along with napkins; however, if you’re DIYing your own reception (i.e. a barn wedding or backyard wedding) or if your venue does not provide them, you’ll need to source your own table linens. And if you need round tablecloths, they can be a hassle to find yourself.
We’ve talked about table runners (remember these velvet table runners and chiffon runners) in the past, but round tablecloths are the hardest to source at a great price — and with unique fabrics and textures. So, we’re here to help! We’ve rounded up eight beautiful round tablecloths in a variety of styles and colors to give you a little inspiration. We’ve found shiny satin, textured burlap, shimmering sequins, rosette table cloths, and traditional linens that are cheap and available in a ton of colors. Wait until you see the moss! 😍 Enjoy!
Round Tablecloths for Weddings
PRO TIP: Before you order round tablecloths, measure your tables and then measure again! If possible, order one tablecloth before ordering them all at once, just to make sure it is the perfect length and style you desire.
First, let’s start with the basics: white linen round tablecloths.
1. White linen round tablecloths
For your wedding, avoid round tablecloths made of plastic! Only use linen. Round tablecloths made of linen will be weighted just enough to lay properly at your reception. These linen tablecloths — spotted at LinenTablecloth — is very affordable at UNDER $10 each with free shipping. These round tablecloths are 90″ size (standard) and have great reviews. Plus, they are wrinkle resistant (a HUGE plus!) and machine washable. Win-win! You can buy yours here. Also available in additional colors (like hot pink, ivory, beige, blue, green, and more!)
2. Satin tablecloths

4. Rosette tablecloths
These beautiful rosette-inspired roudn tablecloths from LinenTablecloth are amazing! They’ll add a textural element to your cocktail hour or wedding reception. These round tablecloths are available in 130″ for a full drop on a 72 inch table. They also look great as table linens for your cake table.
5. Sequin tablecloths
Perhaps the most popular trend for tablecloths right now is sequins — shiny, shimmery sequins! This champagne sequin tablecloth from Mylk and Honey is one beautiful option.
And this gold sequin tablecloth from Revelry Party Company is another fantastic find.

Don’t forget this step!
If you’re buying your own round tablecloths, be sure to use a fabric steamer to remove any wrinkles. You’ll need to really get those wrinkles out before the wedding reception and hang them or roll them around a large tube or curtain rod so they don’t re-wrinkle again. There are few things worse in wedding photos than wrinkly table linens. For a wedding we planned last year, we sourced all the table linens ourselves and had to steam each one (multiple times) to ensure they looked perfect. I used this steamer and it worked perfectly!
It’s great for travel, so you’ll also want to pack it with your wedding day essentials in case your round tablecloths need wrinkle taming prior to the reception.
Hope it helps!
