My colors are David’s Bridal lapis and white. My question is, would it look better to have white tablecloths with deep purple runners, or deep purple tablecloths? I think deep purple tablecloths would look nicer, but I have ugly chairs. They are the dark brown metal banquet chairs with brown vinyl seats. So I thought about chair covers, but then I should probably have white tablecloths and white chair covers. Uggg. My FI thinks noone will notice the chairs in the dim light (we are having uplighting in deep purple), but he doesn’t really “have an eye” for these kinds of things. Any suggestions?

My first question – are you renting or buying your linens with the intent to sell? Obviously white will sell better than a specific color.
Also, you don’t *have* to have the chair covers match the tablecloths if you don’t want them to. Purple linens and white chair covers with a matching purple sash would be just fine.
I’m not sure exactly what kind of “ugly brown chairs” you’re talking about so I don’t know what to say re: needing chair covers or not. 🙂

Most of the time chair covers are not necessary. Once your guests are seated you can hardly see the chairs. To be honest, I really dislike that sea of white look that you get with chair covers.
As for the tablecloths, have you decided what you are doing for centrepieces?
Purple cloths will definitely give a darker vibe to the wedding. White cloths and purple runners will be fresher.

If I were you I would go with the white table cloths and dark purple accents (my color is dark purple too). You could do purple napkins and runners and whatever you decide for centerpieces could have the central color be dark purple as well. I think it will be too dark if you do it the other way around. Hope this helps!

Thank you all for your responses. It gives me some things to think about. I just needed some opinions on the matter. I may get some cheap supplies and do some “mock tables” at home in different variations. I’m very visual, thanks again for your input.
