Okay. You've decided to upgrade from the black, white or ivory that the venue or the caterer provides. But now you need to figure out what will really give you the most bang for your buck, what will really make your wedding colors pop, your guests feel transported and your credit card not too overtaxed. My suggestion? Tame those Pinterest-fueled dreams and set the dial to reality.
There are times, believe it or not, when white is MIGHTY! When using white makes everything looks crisp and clear, makes the other colors seem to pop right off the the table. So consider the color, and not just for chair covers, think white table linen and white napkins in lieu of color. Then use your accent colors for the more minor touches, like chargers, place cards etc. Or let color creep in with a napkin to match your bridesmaids colors.
Table runners are another great way to match your napkins <<bow tie black and white above>> But if you really want a color table cloth then make sure you don't overwhelm the table, bring in white or a 'light' color to keep your tables feeling airy and polished.
Harvest tables should likely NEVER be covered, so ditch the table cloth and just add a pop of color with the napkins or a table runner. My favorite pairing for a harvest table, besides chiavari chairs... a green runner. Some eucalyptus, a few roses? DYNAMITE! Even a cute sash on the back of the chair can really tie in those napkins to your wedding decor.
And please don't forget about black, just super classy and really dramatic. Va va voom!
Napkins are less expensive than linen, than renting harvest tables (if your venue doesn't have any), together with a shiny charge they can really dress your tables and make the room pop. And it's easy for a napkin to fit in to your wedding. Matching the colors that are already present, in your bouquet, your dress, the guys' suits or, if nothing else, black or white. We've Got it Covered is a great go to for all of your linen needs, making your wedding come to life, without breaking the bank!
