@akkaer1:  Well, first off those are GORG!! Secondly, what are your wedding colors? If there isn’t any gold in it I would stay away from getting the gold one. I think a Satin napkin in a soild color would work with this as well. 🙂

@akkaer1:  So maybe this is over the top, but I actually love the idea of the gold linens with the babysbreath centerpieces!  What about a lavender/lilac napkin for a color pop or is that too much?

@akkaer1:  I am using sequin linens as well!  For napkins, we’re using a solid in the same color family.  If you go with the color linen you posted, or even gold, a pop of the purple or blush in the napkin would be gorgeous!

A friend of mine did baby’s breath centerpieces. They were lovely.

She went to TONS of antique fairs and found really beautiful green glass bottles and vases to hold the baby’s breath (she’s an Irish redhead, so green had to be in her wedding colors). Maybe you could find vintage bottles or glass vases in your colors (lavender/lilac or blush) to add a pop of color? Vintage glass bottles could be really lovely and add that rustic feel that you were hoping for. Here are some examples of how mismatched bottles/vases can look: 

OR…you could use sprays of lavender instead of baby’s breath. My cousin did that and not only did the place look beautiful, it smelled AMAZING. She also included a single sprig of lavender on each escort card. It was a nice touch. The cool thing with lavender, is that it can range from rustic and country to very classy and chic.

These are not from my cousin’s wedding, but they give you an idea of what it could look like (personally, I LOVE the color contrast in the first one with the signature cocktail…and the last one with the vintage jars): 

 

Oh–and regarding purple/lavender and gold–those colors look AMAZING together. I say go for it!

@akkaer1:  I’d go with the blush. I think it looks lovely with the gold!

 

As far as a napkin I would so with a solid color matte type finish in the blush like this
