I’m not great at making things asthetically appealing. I wish that I was, because I really do appreciate beauty and niceness and so on. I’m just not great at making it.
My wedding is June 19 at 6 pm. My bridesmaids have royal blue dresses, but I’m pretty sure I don’t want royal blue table cloths.
I looked into yellow gingham overlays, but they are too expensive. Also, I think they might be a little too daytime-ish.
I like how this looks – http://lovepromiseandring.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/wedding-centerpieces.jpg . Additionally, I have like 13 square 8″ tall vases, so I feel like I should probably incorporate them.
I think in my budget, I can afford any of these overlays:
Would navy be okay in consideration of the royal blue bridesmaid dresses?
I like champagne, but I’m not sure what kind of centerpieces would be okay with that.
In a different way, I wouldn’t mind things looking fresh and summery, but not overwhelming.

i think the navy would look great. (i don’t think it would clash with the royal.) what about filling the tall vases with whole lemons to add a pop of color (and summer) on the navy blue table. then white candles to add light (and lighten the tablescape, too.) -or- white flowers in the vases (with a couple/few yellow ones mixed in) and lemons lying on the table, freely.
i think the champagne might just look “dirty” where you already have some great color (the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses) in the wedding. i think of champagne going more with an all white wedding, that has varying tones – like a winterscape or something pretty formal.
what did you have in mind for your bouquets? do you have an accent color or theme in mind?

here is what i was thinking…. but without the flowers, i think they make it a bit busy.

You may be able to get the small rocks and silk yellow orchids at a dollartree or local craft store. Then you could have your yellow pop of color in your square vases. You could also get more square vase/candleholders at dollar tree and votives to add more light to your tables. I would go with a lighter color than navy for the overlays because they may look black later on. You could go actually go with royal blue to match the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and to contrast with the yellow orchids. 🙂 Rhonda
