I need some major help!
I’m having my wedding in a hotel ballroom this May, and unfortunately I don’t have the money to rip up the carpets (haha) and my whole color scheme/design is resting on this venue.
The venue comes with white polyster tablecloths and these orange/gold chairs, please see here:
Since most of my budget went towards the venue, there’s not a lot left for decorating. I have to choose between tablecloths or chair covers. So I was thinking my two options:
1) White tablecloth, white chair covers
2) Leave chairs alone, gold tablecloth
What do you guys think? Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated 🙂

I think I’d go with #2. Only gold tablecloths.

Thank you both for your input. I’m hoping it won’t look too dated. Any suggestions on centerpieces?

I would go for the white/white just because it goes with everything and gives you more wiggle room with decoration etc.

@Mayg07: It looks like you have quite a few tables/centerpieces? Do you have a bridal party? Have you decided what colors they will wear? What does your dress look like?

I like white, white.
Do the color with things like gold table runners and gold sashes for the chair covers!

@Mayg07: DATE TWINSSS!
I actually like the chairs, and I really REALLY hate chair covers.
I agree with some PPs about white.! you can add a little more color with centerpieces

an ivory birdcage with a flower accent would work well with your colors
a lantern centerpiece would work
a simple one with antlers and a couple of dahlias in florist tubes- you could also use driftwood

@Mayg07: Oh, I just re-read your post, the white polyester tablecloths are included? If so, keep them, and then maybe do some organza overlays to soften the table covers.
You can get #40 90″ round gold organza overlays for under $200.00 (not including shipping/handling/taxes).
Then you could get bulk 7.5″ tall cylinder glass vases at DollarTree.com for $40.00- (have them delivered to your closest store and pick them up to save shipping costs.)Add a DollarTree ribbon in your choice of color around the vase.
Add either white or light blue hydrangeas from Costco #30 stems for $95.00 x4
So, for less than $700.00 you will have all the table decor and flowers you need!
Or you could skip the ribbon, choose another overlay color and get gold glitter and put glitter on your vases.

@Mayg07: I really like the chairs too. Don’t need a thing on them.
The gold or white table linens will look lovely with them.

@Mayg07: I personally think the chairs are perfect the way they are. My chairs are similar in color so I am just addeding a few orange gerber daisies to my pink centerpieces to pull in the color. What color scheme are you going with?

I would say and white and white because you would have a lot more options for decor… But since you said you don’t have a lot of money left for decor I would do the gold table clothes. I think they would look very elegant and would add to the room and you would just need centerpieces and be done. We also choose gold tableclothes because they pick up the light from candles if that makes since.
btw gourgous venue!!!

I would get table cloths though the room looks warm as it is.
