Hello! I’m having the most difficult time in figuring out if the color of the sash and napkin needs to match pretty closely.
My colors are shades of purple, silver, and white.
I’m having silver pinktuck tablecloths (http://www.tableclothsfactory.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=B07B_TAB_PTK90_SILV&click=71&gclid=CJmk8fyYwrcCFQqf4Aod-iEAGg), white stretch chair covers, and purple napkins/sash.
I LOVE this color sash (http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/yhst-76425617896115_2261_179876549), but I’m already purchasing this color napkin from my wedding planner (http://www.linentablecloth.com/napkins-and-placemats/napkins/17-inch-napkins-lavender.html#). Do you think I need to have a matching shade of purple for the napkins & sash or will it be okay to have the lavender napkin and victorian lilac?

@lsnguyen7: I think it is awkward when people try to color match and it didn’t turn out quite the same…maybe add a small accent color with the sashes and splash that around? My colors are turquoise and champagne but those colors are hard to do exact color matches so I am splashing Fall accents around the reception and ceremony.

I agree with Payless. I also do not like the look of things that should either contrast or match but do not. If you love the chair sashes, I would switch to white napkins with your color scheme, unless you can purchase silver ones to match your tablecloths. If your order for the purple napkins is set in stone, then I would try to find a sash in the same color purple or silver ones to match your tablecloths.

I dont’ like things to be super mathcy-matchy but in your case, the color difference (at least on my screen) is pretty significant. One thing your could do is order the napkins if you really love them and then try to purchase some ribbon in the same color as the chair sashes to tie the napkins together. If won’t look like you’re trying too hard but your colors won’t clash either.
Editing to add something I once read in a bridal magazine: Remember that life doesn’t only come in two colors!
