My colors are similar, so I’m thinking what I would do in the situation…hmm I think I would opt for the gold table cloths and then use white napkins. Maybe you could dress the napkins up with a gold napkin ring, or maybe even something coral…

This really isn’t as big of a problem as people make it seem.  My dress was ivory and the linens were white and we were fine.

I’ve had people say this to me, too. I don’t think it’s a problem, though, because no one is going to notice the linens when you’re standing there looking smashing in your wedding dress!

It’s really not that big of a deal.  Between the place settings, centerpieces, candles, guests and the glow of a bride – this will never be an issue.

If you were planning on taking a lot of pictures of you standing in front of an empty table then maybe 🙂

Don’t give it another thought and enjoy your wedding!

I’ve always wondered why this was an issue. I want to know who is telling people our dresses will look dirty. A cake baker that I considered said my cake had to be the whiteness of my dress… I told her that I really didn’t care, plus I can’t even remember the actual color of my dress. It’s white of some kind 🙂

I don’t think it’s possible for your dress to look dirty unless it is a brown color, even then it wouldn’t look dirty if that was the color it was meant to be. You may be able to tell the shades are different, but I doubt anyone will care. It’s almost impossible to match any shade of colors together anyhow. Hope this helps!

I don’t think it’s as much as making it look dirty as the fact that the pictures should be focused on you and you not blending in with the tables.  I since you have the option to go with Gold, then I would use it on a few tables like the cake table and a few of the others.  If ur that worried about the colors find something to use like candles that could give the colors you are looking for.

Seriously, I wouldn’t worry about it. The linens will hardly be competition for you!! No one is going to notice. 🙂
