I don’t think it’s tacky at all and I love those colors! What about a black/ivory damask overlay? I feel like damask always makes things more elegant…i would also consider maybe not doing the hot pink jewels in the vase, just clear and black and then have the rose petals that you scatter be hot pink…

I think you can pull it off. But the black chair covers and black table cloths might be a bit much. Do you need chair covers? Im not a big fan of them anyways– too much material! Maybe you can put that money towards something else. If you do decide to do chair covers maybe have them match the table cloths. Or do black chair covers and napkins then ivory table cloths!

Keep the black chair covers but switch to ivory tablecloths.

I don’t think it’s tacky but it does sound like a lot of black. How would you feel about non-black tablecloths?

We had very similar colors! We also had black chair covers and black table cloths!

It’s not tacky if you do it right. I would def work on the centerpiece to make sure that brings in the elegance and lightens everything up. For example, if you have a tall, pretty vase/candelabra, and lots of ivory flowers, it would look really nice. Bellebride’s centerpiece looks nice. I can’t really picture the eiffel tower thing but if you have an example and it looks nice to you, then I’m sure it’s fine. If you are not in love with it, then look for something else. As far as colors go, everything will look fine 🙂
