Well, originally, my colors were blush and gold, and I figured earth tones like brown or champagne would blend nicely. My vision was kind of blown to pieces when my bridesmaids nixed every SINGLE dress or color I preferred, and instead chose, essentially, black and pink (Alfred Angelo Disney Maiden style 512). Then the fiance decided he didn’t want to wear any shade of brown, but instead wanted to wear black. I had already purchased my dress when all of this went down, and I had picked it especially because it has a blush undertone and is very creamy ivory.
When we found the venue, we were thrilled at all of the natural light and the view of the city. I do like the colors of the room, and you’re right- they’re REALLY difficult to tell in the pictures (very washed out). Many of the walls are painted golden, there is a lot of brown trim and the bar is dark mahogany, and I love the chairs. They are very peachy, almost coral, and brighter than the photos.
The carpet is throwing me a little- it’s sage green and either silvery grey or pale blue. I couldn’t really tell, even in person looking at it.
I have to pick tablecloths and such from another state, because this is a destination wedding, so I can’t actually see the colors in the room.
My initial thought was chocolate, because I thought it would look cozy as the sun goes down and would look good with candles everywhere, but I also like the IDEA of ivory, to lighten it up and make it look more like a wedding. I just don’t know if ivory will go in the room. The venue showed me pictures of white tablecloths, and the white looks just as horrible and out of place as the black. TOTALLY does not go. I thought well, ivory is close to white…maybe it will look just as bad?
The peach was just an idea. I don’t know where to find peach tablecloths, but I’ll start looking. Lol. I have seen champagne, chocolate, and ivory for sure, in various fabrics.
I wish I could photoshop the darn tablecloths in there and see it together, but I don’t know how to do that.
Do you think something detailed, like pintuck or crushed taffeta, would look okay with all of that pattern in there, or would something simpler be better, since the chairs and carpet are so distinct?
I am really bad at this, by the way. Thank you!
