If you are having white table linens, white napkins and white flowers and/or  white lanterns-where are your purple and hot pink colors coming from.  -Or are you deciding to just go all white?

White on white is the epitomy of elegance. There usually is some green in the flowers but there doesn’t have to be.

I love the idea of all white. It can be gorgeous in the right setting, and your venue sounds like it is IT! LOVE it.

Actually-back when I got married, 28 yrs. ago-everybody had white on white.  We didn’t have all the choices you have now.

Our colors are red and silver but I just couldn’t bring myself to rent red tablecloths. However, I will note that my father put his foot down about the napkins. Guys in dark suits get white napkins (particularly the free linen variety) all over their suits during things like this. So we have white tablecloths and red napkins to add a splash of color (along with practical application).

I did white on white on white,lol!

My favorite color is white and like you my linens were free from my venue too. So I had white napkins, white linens, white chairs and my white centerpieces. I LOVED how everything turned out!

I really like the white on white idea. I think in the evening when the lights are dimmed and there’s candelight/a view of the city the look will be to die for.

You can add color with your centerpieces, sashes, favors, table number holders, escort cards and other table decor

I bought our napkins online for cheap, and then you can sell them afterwards. While I really like the white on white, I think adding a pop of color would look really nice.

I would go with soft ivory instead of white, white can be too harsh and most of the time can make things look cheap unless its a garden wedding , however, ivory is always classic and better. You can add soft pinks and purples to the centerpeices? also maybe make your own or buy napkin rings with those colors to add color.

I love all white decor, I think it is rich and elegant. If you can do all white and save money do it!
