So I’ve changed my mind a lot on what I wanted. Started with light blue with pops of coral.
Now I am thinking of changing it to light blue/aqua, with light peachy pinks, with some hints of very pale yellow.
I just don’t know what to do for our reception! The hotel provides the standard ivory colored linens and chair covers. I didn’t want to do white. Our chargers are the carved white chargers from Pier1.
As far as linens and colors for the napkins and place settings, I have NO clue what to do. Nor do I know what color to make the table runners. Before I was going to use black. But with all of the lghter colors, I feel like that may be too harsh. Should I use burlap?
I know I can incorporate all of those colors in our florals, just don’t know how to set up the table! Everyone will be sitting at one long table.
Please let me know if you have any advice or any pics!!

Look at this http://pinterest.com/theglittergeek/wedding-colours-peach-blue/
I particularly love this board
You can always keep the ivory linens, and have a burlap runner with blue vases and peach flowers, like the picture up-right in the board. You can add light blue and peach glass bottles with fresh watter and slices of peach instead of lemon inside 🙂

Great idea! I was afraid burlap wouldn’t go with the ivory, but why not?
Thanks for taking the time to post that link! So helpful!!

@KaitPar1: I really like bright red, aqua, and navy. It’s nautical without being too literal.

@KaitPar1: you are welcome, and I love this colour palette ! Go for it ! Burlap, ivory, peach and light/mint blue BEAUTIFUL and has a very natural feel.
I found another nice board, what about ribbons for your chairs ?

Ooh the mint and peach is stunning! & I have thought about ribbon for the chairs, but the style of our chairs aren’t the sames style as in the pic above! They have a rounded back with fitted chair covers
@Jemma — I LOVE aqua and red, but I wasn’t able to talk my fiancee into that color combo. I tried that from the very beginning! haha but so lovely 🙂

our venue had napikin color choices and i kept it all ivory. ivory napkins with ivory tablecloths. i know my mom didnt love the idea at first but in the end it worked out awesome. the tables looked elegant and you looked at the centerpeices more because the napkins didnt over power them.
i think a runner in sand color or a grey or slate would be beautiful
