When the venue linens don't quite match…

Most people on the bee will tell you that ivory and white [almost] look the same.

But to me, they certainly look VERY differant. Although, in picture you probably won’t be able to tell as much.

My colors were originally ivory & black with pink accents.. and then I chose a STARK white dress, and decided that ivory against my dress would look hideous, so I changed it.

I’m so happy I did! My white dress made the linens almost look YELLOW because the ivory was so dark.

Can you do a mockup of each table with the two color schemes and maybe decide from there?

I bought 9 dozen napkins for like 35$ as our venue only provides white and I wanted navy

@graste:  I would never notice if I were at a wedding with ivory-instead-of-white linens. It’s totally not worth the cost of renting linens either, if you ask me – take advantage of the free linens and spend the money elsewhere on something that will impact the guest’s enjoyment or something that will last like photography/videography!
