Well we just booked our hall (it’s a fire hall) and now I need to decide on the colors for the tablecloth, napkins, and what to do with the chairs.
I want to have a rustic feel at the wedding. My centerpieces are going to be mason jars, some decorated with lace, otheres with burlap and twine, and some with both. I’m going to either have them on a bed of moss with tea lights around the jars, or have the mason jars on a slab of wood.
I’m just not sure what colors to go with. We are probably using plastic plates which will be set up by the buffet, so I am thinking I will put a dolly as a placemat at each setting as well. The dollies will be white probably, so I want them to contrast with the tablecloth. So this might mean no white table cloth, unless I find a different color and affordable placemat.
My budget is only 2k for everything so I can’t go overboard.
Here are pictures of the hall. The walls are kind of a sage green, maybe more like a light olive.
(The small room is the room the buffet will be set up)

@heatherisadork: What about any of these?

@heatherisadork: You could have a rustic romatic feel.

You can pick up on the sage green of your walls and incorporate it into the palette.
Are you familiar with http://www.theperfectpalette.com and http://www.design-seeds.com?
On perfect palette click on a color that you want ? sage and see the palettes they have developed
On design seeds you can search by theme, or play around with the search by color value tool then see their palettes.
Sometimes it helps to also consider what flowers will be available at the time of your wedding. Many fall flowers are in the golden, orange colors.

@thehappiestbridetobe: I really like the palete with the sage and pink. I wanted to do mint+peach orginonally but thats when we were planning on an outdoor wedding. But the sage will go well with the walls/flooring.
@julies1949: I really love the dollie as a placemat! I think it’s a budget-friendly option and it looks better then I thought it would with a clear plate!
Also love the colors of the “perfect palete”.
I’m going to check out that site too. Thanks guys!
