    I love the second picture but the first one looks amazing too.  I think they are both really pretty.








    Try not to get carried away with all the extra details you can add. Guests will enter your venue and think it’s beautiful either way then the party goes on and everyone has a good time whether you have an all white venue or not. 








    Edit: I don’t know why the font changes??

    I personally like the all white, but I would do colourful flowers. The picture you posted looks kinda boring because EVERYTHING is white, including chair covers and flowers.

    I LOVE the all white linens in that space. It is gorgeous and extremely elegant without being minimalist. You could add colour with chair sashes, table runners, and gorgeous flowers.

    In this case I would say to do the colored linens because the walls are white but otherwise I would have said to just do the white or ivory linens. We did ivory linens but the walls were a different color. We really wanted a lilac colored linen with lace overlay but they were way too expensive and we couldn’t justify spending so much money on linens.

    I would do the ivory linens and add overlays or runners, sashes, and napkins for the color.  The overlays are really inexpensive and would add all the color you may want.  You wouldn’t even need to do all the tables with them, maybe half overlays, half runners. Just a thought.

    I think the chairs look better without the covers though (second pic) and would also prevent you from having white-overload.

    @xoxovmarie:  Not worth the extra money. Guests dont notice or care. There is so much on the tables, the color really doesnt matter!

    @xoxovmarie:  I think you should stick with using the linens that are provided, when you add your centerpieces, flowers, decorations, etc. you will be glad you didnt spend the extra $$. Plus your venue is beautiful with the white!

    I really like the all-white linens look, but I might be biased. Wink

    This is what our tables looked like at our wedding last year:

    We had white linens in a white tent.  We added color with table runners and the hanging balls.  (which flattened due to the humidity..dope!)  The flowers we used were white daisies, so that didn’t really help much!

    I love crisp white linens. Here were our tables with white linens AND white flowers. Clearly, I love me some white. 🙂

    We used the provided ivory linens.  Our centerpieces were yellow or orange flowers, and our table numbers were also orange or yellow. So thats how we incorporated our colors to each table.

    you could always keep the white/ivory linens and do colored napkins to coordinate with your flowers? or colored chair sashes and colored napkins?
