Hello fellow weddingbees 🙂
I am recently engaged and going through that planning stage for my wedding in June of 2013. I am looking for ideas for my reception as far a color schemes go. We have decided on turquoise, black and white as the colors. Any ideas on how to make this the best wedding ever??????

The only thing I know for sure is that I would like to make it like the 1920s speakeasy theme. I would like it simple but elegant. I’m trying to see if it would be better to have a simple black tablecloth but how would I add the white and turquoise? I want it to be nice and not too busy if you know what I mean :-). I was thinking maybe black table cloths abd black chair covers with turquoise sashes. But what about the white? Is that too much????

Men wore a lot of black and white in their suits in those days. You could do a black tablecloth and a white runner.
White napkins with a turquoise adornment of some sort- a napkin ring, ribbon tie etc.
Use turquoise for your vases as blue flowers are difficult. If you can’t find blue vases at a reasonable price you can get plain glass vases or even use tin cans and cover them with paper- maybe print out wanted posters from the era or posters about prohibition.Wrap with a turquoise ribbon. This would also work for candles in cylinder vases.
An alternative is to use white cloths with a striped runner
Note the mini champagne bottles used as placecarc holders.
For a different look you could see if you could find a striped tablecloth like this- very reminiscent of the pinstriped suits of the era.
Do a lot of googling and find ideas to support your theme. Props like this could be used on the bar or the gift table.
Note how they brought in the blue with the bottles of gin.
