So I’m sitting here with my eyes closed trying to decided what colors to put where…Why do they give us so many options? 🙂
Here’s what we have already decided on:
Our reception colors are Coral, Gold (champagne), and Ivory
I love nuetral tones and am not putting in too much coral…Just fun touches here and there.
My BM’s and flower girls are wearing coral.
Our flower arrangements are bunches of white Hydrangeas in tall crystal vases. between the flower arangements, we are scattering these glass and gold tea light holders.
There will also be a gold charger, a coral napkin, and a small white frame at each place setting.
We have ivory table cloths, long rectangular tables and our reception hall looks like this:
Here is the layout-the white dots are flower arrangements:
So here’s what i need help deciding on:
What color chiavari chairs? Gold or Mahogany (shown above). We are going to tie ivory chair sashes and seat pads on each one and they look gorgeous on both colors of chairs.
What color table runners? Coral or champagne?
I just cant decide…

@FutureMrsClayshulte: Ooh, champagne table runners, mahogany chairs! That sounds so warm to me. I’m not sure I love the idea of coral table runners and coral bridesmaid dresses.

@pengoala: Thanks! I’m so glad someone finally helped…My venue’s even coordinator is on maternity leave until right before the wedding so I’m on my own.
The napkins will be polyester coral. Do you think that will be enough coral with the maids dresses?

Champagne definitely! The coral runner looks a little cheap.
You can always add pops of color with flowers and your BMs, like you are doing.

@FutureMrsClayshulte: You know, I’m even still thinking of champagne napkins (i’m weird about needing the contrast between dresses and linens), but if you’d like to do coral that’s cool too! What centerpieces are you doing? Could you add more coral there? I like the idea of coral in the picture frames!

Thanks for your imput everyone!
Fiance and I sat down with photos of the venue and my samples and chose our colors.
We ended up chosing Mahogany chairs with an ivory bow and chapagne runners.
@pengoala: We will look at the napkins right before the event when our wedding planner gets back. Our venue includes those in any color for free so I dont have to order them now 🙂 They are polyester and the BMs are wearing satin so I’m not sure if it will clash or be ok 🙂
I’m dead set on all white flower arrangements but I’m sure I can encorporate it somehow.
I went ahead and used coral text in the picture frames to incorporate the color: Each frame will have 1 of 20 different song lyrics all from our favorite country songs.
I also used coral in the text for my Thank You sign and I’ll be repeating this in my other signs.
