@stephanie1989:  We did Tiffany blue and brown as well! Honestly, so many people have different ideas of what “Tiffany blue” is it can get SUPER frustrating. I basically went with anything from Mint Green, Robins Egg Blue to what I considered to be a true Tiffany Blue (like on their boxes). If you are okay with brown table runners that would work. Honestly though, all of those blues I mentioned still look wonderful together. 🙂

I think brown with blue accents is the way to go! I had to do the same thing…when the girls dresses came in, the decor looked kinda crappy next to them….so I changed up my main colour to be my accent colour. I like the look of blue with brown personally Smile

Maybe this is just me… but as a BM I wouldnt want to match a table cloth, runner or napkin. Matchy/matchy just insnt chic to me- I say get a little more liberal with your palate. Itll still look cohesive and pretty! NO ONE at your wedding will scoff that the bms dont match the linens.

@stephanie1989:  Might be careful with Mint Green, too… Thats one of my colors, and you’d be AMAZED at the variance in shades that people call “mint”. Just fair warning for when you go to choose shoes and accessories.

Honestly, I’d just leave it like it is and not worry about it. It will look fine. Nobody ever hated a wedding because the bridesmaids dresses didn’t match the table runners.

Where are your bridesmaids sitting? At the head table?

In that case your table could have brown linens, and keep the guest tables blue.

Or keep the table with blue linens and order different flowers for that table which incorporates both the BM dress blue and the wedding color/ linens blue.
