bubbie11:  I guarantee that your dress will not be overwhelmed by ANYTHING in the room. There is no law that runners and sashes must match, just as there is no law that you have to have sashes at all. Name me one other social event that uses chair sashes (or covers)! Somehow the wedding industry has convinced brides that they are a necessary item.

Here’s our mock up:
