From today I am two weeks away for my big day. I work in a restaurant and my manager told me he would rent all of my linens through our distributor as a gift. I got all 20 table linens yesterday however the color brown that the linen rep brought in was like a tan mocha color.
I am in a rut because I don’t want to have to pay to rent 200 linens at the last minute from a different vendor. My other two wedding colors are white and dark lime. The table linens are white and the runners are dark lime. The plates are all white so I wanted the chocolate brown for an extra splash of color. Any suggestions on what other color would go with these?
Here are some links for what I was going for.

I’m kinda confused as to what color he bought you and why it won’t work. Is it that the color that came in is too light?
Since you have the runners already, could you go to a fabric store and get some dark brown overlays to go over the tan-colored linens? Then your lime runners would "pop" on the table a little more. Just an idea

I think the overlay idea is a good one!

Yes, I’m confused also. When you are talking about the tan mocha linens.. are you talking about napkins? (I’m thinking that because you said that the clothes are white and the runners are green).
If that is the case I would say go with the tan mocha and see if you can find some nice satin ribbon in a chocolate brown to tie around the napkin.
Did the distributor offer any textured or pattern linens? That could also create a nice complement to the plain white table linens.

I am also confused by the question. What is the question? If it were me (and I am understanding that you have table linen that is too light) I would either:
a) leave the white linen and lime runners and rent chocolate brown napkins (less expensive than renting new linen) or
b) use the mocha/tan linen and tie in the color somewhere else (paper lanterns, ribbons, etc)
Good luck! Don’t stress!
