We will. White is included in the venue price – ivory is an extra charge. The lighting will not be super bright, so I expect them to look off-white, which is fine with me, as the flowers will not be pure white. My sister had ivory linens, at her wedding and had uplighting and pin lights, in a light-dimmed room. They looked more like champagne/tan, in the lighting.

@Jas00:  We used white for all guest tables and Champagne for sweetheart, cake and memorial tables.  There’s so much crap on all of the guest stables (chargers, centerpieces, glasses) that you can’t even tell.  I was worried the stark white tablecloth would look hideous but you can’t really tell.

We did! Got them cheap off craigslist from a girl who bought the wrong size!

We used white table linens with navy chair covers & aqua sashes. The staff at the reception venue said that they havent had that combination before but they loved the way the blue popped and became the focus. All of our guests complimented us on the linens as well.

If you do not like the white table cloth, you could always opt for a sheer overlay on top of the white table cloth which is typically cheaper?
