i'm trying to decide between two venues right now. one is totally neutral and will be easy to decorate but small and expensive plus everyone has their wedding there! the other is much larger, inexpensive and beautiful but i think that it is going to totally clash with purple! :(
there is a lot of burgandy, the walls have a gold/red pale wallpaper and the chairs are burgandy. the carpet looks brand new and is burgandy as well with some purple flowers (i know it doesn't sound right but trust me it's beautiful). the purple flowers gave me some hope.
my plans for reception decor are to do all the tables in white, with victorian lilac overlays, dark purple or white napkins and white plates. i will be doing non-floral centerpieces- stacked favor boxes in different tones of purple a la Martha Stewart on top of a rented silver cake plate instead of gold. i have flower picks in my bio if you want to see more of my color direction. i don't think that chair covers are within my budget. my fi has the pics of the venue and i will post them once he sends them to me.
do you ladies think that the burgandy will ruin my purple plans? do you have any decor advice?
this is the overlay i am thinking of- it may help to blend the burgandy and dark purple that i like.
