@Soon2BeBee:  It would be easier for people to get the concept if you just edit your post while you still can. Within the first hour you can just change ivory to white yourself.

What chairs does the venue provide? Are they really so ugly that you have to rent additional chairs and then still have to pay to cover them up? That doesn’t make financial sense to me.

To be fair, I will state that I am not a fan of chair covers. You will have a sea of ivory that will them become the focal point instead of having the focal point be the tables and centerpieces.

You really don’t have to worry so much about the perfect matching colors even if you do decide to go with the chair covers and turquoise  cushions. The turquoise cloth will be mostly covered by the overlay, and the seat cushions will be covered by your guests.

@Soon2BeBee: 

If you want submerged flower centerpieces, you can use ivory or blue flowers.

You could incorporate taupe in the color of your floating candle, or use taupe as a base for the vases. You could also use taupe in the table numbers, or add little chachkas at the base of the centerpieces in that color.

 

 

 

Ikea Tolsby frames can be spray painted the color of your choice, or you could use an ivory frame with taupe cardstock for the background.

You could also use wood discs for your table numbers

When you say ” cane chair” do you mean Chiavari chair?

 

Can you rent the chairs and use only a cushion-no chair cover? The chair REALLY does not have to be ivory ,blue or taupe.

I would say use taupe and ivory for the linens, and bring in the turquoise with napkins and centerpieces.  are your bridesmaids in a tiffany blue? That could look lovely.
