Tablecloths & Linens Sizing Help

Finding the right tablecloths for your tables can be confusing so we’ve created a few sizing guides to help! To see the whole selection of sizing guides any time, visit our Linen Sizing Guides board on Pinterest, or pin these to your wedding linens board! Our sizing guides shows the suggested tablecloth and overlay sizes for commonly used tables. The tables are standard sized 30″ high tables, unless noted. After determining your size, visit our tablecloths and linens selection to choose from a variety of fabric and colors for your event!

Sizing Guide

Round Tables: Measure your table diameter (or radius x 2) then add the desired drop x 2 - so if you want the tablecloth to go to the floor (or drop 30” to the floor) add 60, if you want it to go half way (or drop 15” to the floor) then add 30. If you’re not sure how long the tablecloth drop is, then subtract the diameter of the table from the tablecloth size and then divide by 2. 

Square Tables: If you know your table size, simply multiply the desired drop length by 2 and then add the table length. If you’re not sure how long the tablecloth will drop, subtract the table size from the linen size and divide by 2.

Rectangular Tables: First, measure the width and length of your table, and add twice the desired drop since the drop is on both sides of the table. For example, your table is 30" x 72". If you want a 30" drop to the floor, multiply 30 x 2 = 60 and add 60 to your width (90") and length (132"), so the tablecloth should be 90" x 132".
