- Wedding: May 2012
Having a hard time envisioning this and need opinions! OK – we don’t really have wedding colors persay….. my bridesmaids are in David’s Bridal PLUM and groomsmen are wearing black tuxes (with ivory shirts). My dress is ivory lace over light gold – so we’re incorporating a gold/champagne color as well – all our flowers are white. We have a natural branchy arch with white flowers for the ceremony as well as all white flowers in gold holders lining the aisle. Centerpieces are all white flowers in clear glass (tall) vases, with crackled glass candleholders (tri level). Lighting for the room is purple uplighting to bring in the Plum/purple color.
We decided to go with ivory linens from our venue and I wanted to use gold picture frames (a la inspiration from pinterest) for table numbers to incorporate a little more gold. So we met with our venue last night to finalize our menu, etc. and the question of CHAIRS came up. I had originally had my heart set on gold chiavari chairs, but we’re over budget, so I was just going to use the chairs they supply – which are natural wood chairs with backs – not bad at all – and they go with everything. Well they informed us last night that they changed their chairs. Now their chairs that are included are the dark brownish black chiavari chairs with black cushions. If you want any other color cushion, it’s an extra $4 per chair…. or you can use the black for free. Well, Fiance is not paying $4 for cushions and he’s thrilled that we’re esentially getting chiavari chairs for free…….
But now I’m thinking that will look weird if everything else is ivory and the chair has a black cushion. Would you try to incorporate a little more black on the table? Would black napkins look weird with ivory tablecloths? Would you paint the picture frame table numbers black instead of gold? (I had my heart set on gold, but I don’t know anymore). Any thoughts?
This is a picture of our room just to get an idea of the space….. and like I said, we’re doing the purple uplighting (top picture shows the chairs they use now, only we would have black cushions instead of ivory, and bottom picture shows the original chairs that they no longer use). Am I making too big of a deal over this? I mean, the lights will be low and there will be a purple hue in the room anyway. Thoughts????
