Color Combo Question

My BM dresses are bordeaux/wine color they are not really purply but not in the red family, it is a hard color to describe and the sash/tie is silver.  The colors that I am using for my flowers are oranges/dark burgundy/greens/bright pinks (they look fantastic with the deep wine color)  I cannot seem to find table runners in the bordeaux/wine color, is it okay to utilize one of my flower colors for the runner?  I was thinking the bright pink to make it fresh/clean and bright.  I am afraid silver might not give it enough WOW factor.  My centerpieces are going to be 3 glass containers; middle is full of hydrengeas, and the 2 sides will have spider mums (color will be based on the runner color)

Any suggestions?

    what color are your table cloths? I am using that wine color too, but am having gold as the other color. Maybe just have a red ccenterpiece? Thats what I am doing with gold table cloths. Do you need a runner you think?

    nothing wrong with bringing out the colors from your bouquet...
    my girls wore plum colored dresses, but a lot of my accents were the orange i pulled from their bouquets.

    I think using another color will be fine!

    Could you even possibly have a printed table runner over a solid table cloth, using those colors? As you described your colors, I imagined a paisley sorta in this family:

    A paisley table runner could be really interesting and pretty, in my opinion.

    The table cloths will be ivory or white.  They venue has colored table cloths of my choice but the room really isn't that big to put all that dark drab color in there.

    I feel like I need to use something else on the tables to give the room a little bit more of my style.  The runners will give the room a pop without too much matchy matchy color.  

    I would love that paisley runner except I cannot find any good fabrics.  But the more i think about it a big pattern may be too much.  The venue is pretty "italian" with dark colors so I am not sure paisley will work
