I do think that the chairs will stand out, but I don’t think that will necessarily look bad. I think white goes well with the colors that you have.

I would go with a white tablecloth, with black and teal accents on the table. That way, it looks like you’ve accented the white dining set with your colours, rather than having the white chairs being the only things that don’t fit. The chairs and tables will become part of the landscape, onto which you have overlaid your colours, especially when they’re covered with people and food.

I think that completely black and teal table may be overkill anyway. Better to work off of a background of white, which guests won’t notice anyway, as white table and chairs is standard dining room.

I think it should be fine. It’s not like you’ll be standing in front of the tables when the guests walk in, they’ll already be seated, or dancing, and be looking at you, not where they’re sitting. If you’re a bit self conscious about it, you could get full coloured linens for the head table, which is where you’re most likely to be photographed, too.

You’re the bride. People are going to assume that your dress is white, and the chairs and tables are going to seem blue-white if anything in comparison.
