I’d stick with ivory so you can lighten up the room some and avoid clashing with the chairs (as I think gold table cloths would – itd just be too much gold on gold and you’d be lucky if they even ended up being the same golds).  Other than the table cloths I think you could decorate with whatever other accent colors you want – the room looks very neutral. Peach and gold could be pretty gorgeous.  What are your wedding colors?

@Blush_and_Bashful:  Are these your colors?  Peach? Rust? Chocolate?

It’s hard to tell the true colors in the room from the pics. It looks like sage green carpet, green upholstered chairs with a gold and brick pattern on the back on my monitor. There does seem to be lots of natural light so I don’t think you need to worry for one minute about choosing light or dark colors.

If your colors are peach, rust and chocolate I would choose either peach, chocolate or champagne tablecloths,and bring in the other colors in your flowers and vases etc. You could also have a table runner in one of the colors if you like.

IVORY!!   And if you like lace/ burlap.  The colors seem so feminine and pretty together and adds texture.  Maybe use lanterns as part of your centerpieces?

Can you ask the vendor to take some better closeup pics and email them to you so you can see the colors?

If the maids have pink dresses, and you have a blush undertone to your dress, it soounds like it will work well with the peachy, almost coral color on the chairs. You can ignore the wood tones and the mens’ black tuxedos- they are all neutrals.

I think you can use champagne, ivory or chocolate for your table linens- purely a matter of personal choice.

You could pink flowers in shades of pink, coral and peach and use some Dusty Miller for greenery so you get that silvery, sage green touch.



a green vase would pick up on the carpet

 Unless you particularly want a rustic touch, I don’t think every wedding needs burlap. You have a very elegant room. I would do similar decor.
