- Wedding: October 2013
Another question for you guys. I’m having a formal yet rustic/English-garden wedding theme for my reception. The centerpieces will be a variety birch bark, mercury glass, and milk glass vases filled with white garden roses and greenery, with other tables topped with lanterns and birdcages filled with flowers and candles, and glass votives and moss surrounding each centerpiece.
Because there’s alot going on in the centerpieces/tablescapes, I wanted to go for a simple but textured tablecloth. No designs, no pin-tuck, and no super shiney. My fear with colored tablecloths is they will look like all the proms I went to in high school that used color poly/cotton blend. Ideally, if I was marrying Donald Trump instead of my lovely man, I would go for a darker gray, textured raw silk tablecloth, with possibly a slight hint of reflectiveness to pick up the candlelight.
My bridesmaids dresses are Lazaro Mikado in Graphite, which is a dark gray. They are smooth with a sligh sheen, so that’s why I’m looking for texture in the tablecloths.
Anybody know of what I should be looking for? It’s hard to tell online what all these types of materials acutally look like – crush, krinkle, dupioni, shangung, taffetta… AH!
Here are a few options – what do you think? What do you recomment? Also, I live in NYC and many linen rentals are overpriced – trying to stay around $30 per rented floor lenght tablecloths (large round tables), so nothing too pricey.
Thank you guys!
The above is sometimes called Krinkle / Crush
The above is silk / taffetta
