    I think the navy would be a really nice contrast and stabilize the whole look. If you can afford to rent navy linens, go for it! I do think that there’s the potential to wash everything out if you use ivory linens.

    I just wanted to chime in and say I was up all night tossing and turning worrying about my linen situation as well!!! Haha I am so tired right now.. and am kinda in the same boat as you wondering about plum vs. ivory linens. So I guess I can’t really give you any tips since I’m also going through this dilemma, but I feel your pain!!

    I love all the details for your wedding, it looks like it is coming together so perfectly. I think the idea with the navy and blush would look really nice and perfect for that space.


    Coming from a married bee, try not to stress too much. I know it’s hard and I stressed over linens too but then in the end I couldn’t even tell you what ended up on my tables. I didn’t notice much during the receptions (I noticed centerpieces more) and I maybe have one or two pictures. Enjoy it and try not to go crazy over napkin colors 🙂

    You stated you wanted “romantic shabby chic” so I would stick to pale colored linens & napkins (ivory linens w/ blush napkins.)

    If you go with the navy this will provide contrast in the room. The linens will be what stands out first since you have a light colored room, light flowers/centerpeices, etc.

    So if you want more contrast go with navy (but this won’t be the most “romatic & soft” look.) But if you do want that romantic soft, go with the ivory/blush combo.

    Navy and blush will make a statement for sure. Plus your venue is so white to start I think the colors will really add a fantastic pop. Good luck!

    Can you do blush colored tablecloths with navy napkins? 

    I think ivory tablecloths is too much ivory with the space, and I love navy tablecloths, but because of the contrast it will definitely be the focal point. 

    Love your dress, btw!!
