Linen Color Advice

We are thinking about buying our linens instead of renting them because it will only be about $60 more and I figure we can try getting some of our money back out of them. The only problem I have run into so far is that the cheapest place we have found them don't carry all of the colors for the banquet table linens. We want to do champage tablecloths with burgundy linen napkins, but they have the champagne in the round but not the banquet (for the head table). I am debating between these options:1) Inverse the colors and do burgundy tablecloth with champagne napkins for the head table2) Do white linens on the head table and still have the colored napkins3) choosing a different color scheme for the linens4) Alternating the linen colors on all of the tables (I haven't seen this done and I'm not sure how it would look, so if anyone has seen this please let me know, pics would be great!)wwyd? we are basically doing all fall colors and the centerpieces will have a burgundy floating candle if that makes a difference...TIA for any advice   :)

Re: Linen Color Advice

  • I think choice #1 would be BEAUTIFUL! It would make the head table really dramatic and the center of attention. I'm never a huge fan of white linens and I think alternating would look really distracting and busy. I think the colors you chose are gorgeous so I would stick with that!Since you're doing burgundy floating candles on all the other tables it would be really pretty to use Ivory candles lining the front of the head table! I think they would really pop off of the burgundy linens! http://shcdenverwedding.weebly.com       [url=http://www.theknot.com/?utm_source=ticker&utm_medium=UBB&utm_campaign=tickers][img]http://global.theknot.com/tools/tickers/tt413db.aspx[/img][/url]
  • I rented mine and alternated between an orange-ish/gold and magenta and it looked awesome.  Then I picked the one i liked more for the head table. We used ivory napkins so their werent too many colors going on. Check out cloth connection, and I think they were like 30 each and were so beautiful that I didnt want to send them back!!
  • thanks for the advice! I think I will probably go with a burgundy head table. I'm going to check out that place for linens too! thanks again  :)
