- Wedding: January 2011
Ok, please bear with me. This post has quite a few questions. My main wedding color is eggplant. My maids will be in eggplant colored dresses. The guys will (or at least we plan for them to) have matching vests & ties and wear orange boutonnieres. Me and the girls will have purple, green and orange in our bouquets. Green and orange are the other colors of the wedding. Also, my wedding is Jan. 29. 2011.
At my reception I want all the tables to have white table cloths. My 1st question is about the table runners. Should I use eggplant satin runners, a pretty ‘willow’ green satin runner, or a white & “apple” green damask print runner? Or a mixture – if a mixture, tell me which you think, please.
Next. My centerpieces will be 12 in tall cylinder vases with birch branches … 2nd question – should I get the brownish colored branches with the ‘ice’ crystals on them, white sparkly branches, silver sparkly branches, or maybe even some purple sparkly branches…again, if you suggest a mixture, please tell me which. Also, I want to get floralytes to put in the vases with the filler i use..should I get a color or just plain clear light?
Last question. I plan to have votive candles on the tables as well. I originally wanted my future MIL to use thin green, orange, and purple ribbon and put around each votive…after more thought I’m wondering if that should be changed too? Maybe just one color of ribbon on each votive? a mixture of ribbon on some, a damask print on others? (would the patterns look dumb?)
Thanks ladies and again, sorry its so long. I’m just so confused!
