Much ado about linens
This is a completely ridiculous thing to spend too much time thinking about, but I need opinions.
Our wedding colors are royal blue and yellow. Originally I wanted to get blue table runners to put over the venue-provided white tablecloths, to go with our sunflower centerpieces. However, our linen person does not have blue runners, but has blue and yellow tablecloths. I am thinking of maybe having some tables with blue covers and some with yellow, with alternating colored napkins.
My question is, will this be overwhelming? Like "WHOA look at the wedding colors!" It is not a small room, and there are lots of windows. There will probably be 10-12 tables. The only other decor we were thinking of is hanging blue (or yellow?) paper lanterns from these blueish twinkle lights hanging from the ceiling (see below- this is my venue too, to give you an idea of the space).
So. Too much? Too matchy matchy? Should I just do white covers with colored napkins? Blue and yellow covers? No paper lanterns? What did other people do for linens? Does this even matter?
