table linens and colors, ack!

okay, so our wedding colors are lavender and pale green. For our table linens, i was planning to do ivory tablecloths with lavender napkins, but FI is complaining that everything is purple and he wants more of the green. Do you think that light green tablecloths with purple napkins would be too gaudy? Another idea that i had was to keep the white tablecloth/ lavender napkins idea, and then put a green, round "tablerunner" thing in the middle of the table, under the centerpieces. What do you ladies think? I'm trying to work in ALL of the colors, to make FI happy. Any other ideas?

My colors were purple and green also! We ended up doing a white tablecloth, a purple table runner, and green napkins... 5 days before the wedding I was freaking because I was having a hard time visualizing it all, went to the site and did a mock-up and I was hooked. The day of with the flowers and table names it just looked beautiful and all came together really well. Let me see if I can find a picture for you. I don't have my pro pics yet.

Maybe keep the tablecloths ivory and do pale green napkins to keep your FI happy. You can incorporate the lavender in the centerpieces or as a decorating thingy on the napkins... like a single lavender flower or a piece of ribbon. Or lavender place cards. You have lots of options.

Good luck!

Rmccloskey,
Our colors were green and lavender too! I will soon have professional photos, in the meantime you can check out the photos in my bio.
What we did is we rented the Wickam Kiwi tablecloths and the matching napkins from Classic Party Rentals. I cannot recommend the color and the tablecloths enough! We were so happy with the quality of the linens, the color, the texture, and the way the green enhanced the look of the reception space and made it look lush and garden-y! Plus it looked really pretty with our lavender and purple centerpieces!

And here's what our tables looked like with the purple flowers. Note that the green is more lime or kiwi green in reality, not so much celadon as in the picture.

smilkova- ooh, i really like the texture of your tablecloths! Its a really nice green too.


I didnt even think of doing colored placecards or napkin rings, that would tie stuff in too. Thats why i love this website, so many great ladies with great ideas!
