What about choosing one of those colors for each table?

What other colors are you choosing?  For BMs dresses?  For flowers?  What is the venue like?

do you have a theme??  your colors are pretty autumnal but are you trying to steer away from or towards autumn leaves and pumpkins??  is rustic or country something you had in mind or more fancy??

otherwise, i think chocolate brown table runners, cloth napkins in the oranges, blue and green (solid colors, just a different one at each setting) with either a rustic, grapevine ring or golden-toned metal ring (depending on that rustic or fancy question above).  i think the brown would be a nice base and then spreading those colors around the table in small amounts will keep it from getting too busy or garish.

also, if you’re leaning towards rustic, have you considered burlap??  i am having a rustic wedding in august and plan on making these table runners.  rustic, but also feminine.

ps-i heart gourds, if you’re embracing the autumnal theme, gourds in vases, like this, are so classy yet country!

good luck!

Chicagogrrl, love the colors and love the site you lined to. Looks really fun, I can’t wait to go play in there! And Vagabondgurl’s idea look wonderful! Love the gourds for fall.

 

(P.S. Vagabondgurl, have you got any great inspirations for a December 30 wedding? 😉 I’m calling the theme “relaxed elegance.” I’ll start a separate thread so as no to butt in on Chigagogrrl.)

They only come in white with silver, but CVS pharmacy sells some very classy looking disposable plates and such.

Love the colors.  I know that the “peacock” theme is in right now with deep teals, purples, greens.  That seems like it might be close to what you want with a splash of orange.  So you might look into that.

For me, I just googled all of my wedding colors and added wedding reception to the end and got some amazing photos… here’s what I found for yours in a quick search…

oh ok…  more modern then.  hmmm…  what about square pillars, in your colors, on silver or gold or some other solid square base, like a charger? i don’t know why but when i think modern i think more geometric/lines than fluid/circles.

something similar to these??

You could definitely do the clear glass square vases (check dollartree for them) and then you could either get the orange or teal or combo of those colored candles.  If you want, you could check out http://www.efavormart.com or http://www.weddinglinensdirect.com (which I used) for colored table runners (or a skinnier sash instead of table runners).  Are your tables round or long?  Does your venue have high ceilings, or will you be having an outdoor reception.  If you are having an outdoor reception I would also consider having mirrors under the candles to help you get more lighting if your reception will be at night.
