When it comes to my table linens, decorations, etc. I have no idea what I want except possibly a patterned tablecloth. I have an appointment with a florist next weekend and they want to see inspiration pics, but I have no idea what to bring in. Boquets will be easier, but not sure what I want my table to look like at all. My linens lady wants me to send her pics too, but I haven’t found anything that I love.
Does anyone have any extra time and want to help me search? Our colors are coral and orange but I’m thinking coral on the tables. Any good websites to suggest? I’ve done the bee, the knot, martha stewart, and just plain google images.

Try pintrist. It’s got a lot of good stuff.

@MissHobbit: thanks! I’ve checked pinterest too, I just don’t see anything that really catches my eye. I guess its because I don’t know what I’m looking for. haha

@jrzvol: Is there a specific “feel” you’re going for?

Pinterest is great for ideas. If it helps at all, it took me ages to put together an idea board (*I used Pinterest and also copied and pasted pics from all over the web into a word document that I then was able to send to my reception coordinator).
Have you picked a cake? Can it give you inspiration for the table, etc..?
Do you have a style for your wedding? Beach/Tropical? City chic? Shabby chic? other?
It can seem overwhelming for sure. It gets easier though!! 😉
To actually purchase linens.. I highly recommend CV Linens. I bought 5 sample sating sashes from them in 5 different shades of teal/turquoise and for that small investment.. found the perfect shade of turquoise for my reception. It was easy then to order coordinating organza runners for the tables, etc..
Perhaps this site is helpful for ideas… I have not ordered from them but they have some great coral table pics… BBJ Table Fashions Looks like they have an interactive, virtual table design page you could play with … might help.
Good luck!! It will be beautfiul!

@MissHobbit: Not really. I just want bright, cheery, happy vibe if that counts.

Have you got a venue yet? That will really influence your style and decor. You’ll want to go with the general theme of the venue so you don’t have to double work to try and recreate the vibe.
Also pick what is important to you. Obviously you aren’t stuck on having peonies or anything like that, so I’d say be super flexible with flowers so they aren’t the biggest chunk of your budget. If you dress is more important than go with that or whatever. I wouldn’t feel upset that there are certain things you are unsure about– I wish I felt ambivalence towards my decor and then I wouldn’t be such a stressed out bride! LOL

Not sure if this will be helpful or not, as I created it for a casual party we plan to throw in the spring, but here is an inspiration board that I pulled together with similar colors: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=42521735

@carolyn.sp.79: thanks! im not so much worried about budget as i am just figuring out how everything will flow. my venue is pretty neutral so im trying to figure out how to find some punches of color. Luckily, work has been cancelled for the week thanks to the hurricane, so I’ve been google-ing/pinning/martha stewarting like crazy and I think I’ve got some good inspiration pics now. Meeting with the florist this weekend should help me lock down a big chunk of “decor”.
@lovekiss: Very pretty, thank you!
I think I just need to lock down one thing at a time and stop changing my mind. Flowers first, then table linens, and then everything else should follow, right? 🙂
