I am having a tent reception. MY Fiance and I decided on a grey and yellow colour scheme, I love yellow! I was at my venue the other day to pay a deposit and was looking at there selection of organza bows and napkins and the yellow and silver ones are not the right colour =(. The silver and yellow are way to light. The only nice option they have is black
Do I keep the yellow and switch grey for black? MY FI is upset I want to change our colours. I am worried about my wedding looking like a bumblebee if I go with black and yellow. What colour would my bridesmaids wear?
Any input is appreciated!

I don’t think you should change all your colours because of bows and napkins. Have the got another complimentry colour that no one would notice? (A shade of white would go unnoticed) Or could you find the right colour elsewhere and bring them in?

@ladyartichoke: I agree. Do white napkins and stick to grey and yellow – it is such a chic palette!

You can use the white napkins and bring in the yellow and gray with other touches like napkin rings and flowers.

Just plain white napkins, and even white bows. Since your colors on everything else are going to be very bold it would be great for the tablecloths, bows and napkins to be white to provide a nice clean canvas. Put down bright yellow flowers as centerpieces, and look at your china options. Often times you can get a bold colored charger to go under the plates, and this would ramp up the color of the tables, whether it would be silver or yellow.
Also I suggest your bridesmaids wear yellow. It will look much more vibrant than gray dresses!

Yep, I was going to say exactly the same thing. Just use white for all your basics, and bring in the pops of colour yourself!
