I literally laughed out loud when I saw they wanted close to $200 for upgraded table clothes. I am thinking of just buying some from one of the mega wholesale wedding sites like save-on-crafts.com or koyal wholesale.
Also, I have seen some brides post about taking a jambox down there with them for the reception. I was thinking about doing this as well since the speaker only costs $300 verses $599.40 for three hours sound system from the resort.
We used the included tablecloth overlays that Cri showed (They're very nice in person) but added a table runner. I bought 10 of them for about $40 on ebay. They have them in a bunch of different colors and it really added some color to the reception. We didn't have ten tables but they used the extras to decorate some of the cocktail hour tables and the guestbook table. Here is the link to the store: http://stores.ebay.com/craftsnfavors. We purchased the pintuck runners.
We used the Big Jambox for our wedding in September. It was awesome! We used it for the reception and the bonfire, plus we now have a nice portable speaker. We did use the hotel sound system for the ceremony, which ended up being a good move. We had 36 guests. It may not be as necessary with a small group, but for ours, I think it was.
